Well it depends on what "best" means.

If best = better than all other people, women won't be on the top 10 list for many sports.
If best = better than all other people they compete against, they absolutely should be.

Does it matter what he has done lately? The thread literally has 'All Time' in the title.

No, I'm not saying that Korver wasn't a top 10 disc golfer "just because (she) competed against women." I'm saying she wasn't a top 10 disc golfer because when she did compete in an open division she got crushed.
I don't care whether the restriction is age, gender, amateur, or whatever. The point is that when you are dominating a field that is restricted in some way that doesn't prove you're the best, it only proves you are the best among that restricted field. She is undoubtedly one of the best FPO players ever. She's not even close to one of the best players ever though.

Exactly. He came onto the scene hot, kept it up for a minute and then slowly faded away, which I believe will continue from what I’ve seen of his covered play and scores. “All Time” to me considers their entire career, not just a hot start with the finish we’ve seen/I predict.

I get what the thread said, I just think I have more specific requirements to even be on the list than you may have. Difference of opinions eh.

Probably should update this after the final 2018 results are in but here are some stats to consider for men and women which covers about 25% of "all-time": https://www.pdga.com/most-dominant-o...-past-10-years

Feldberg had quite a decade. I'm guessing the previous decade has Climo in that spot.

Good thing for disc golfers is that you can stay competitive well through your 30's. I could see Uli getting a Worlds or USDGC.

I was able to have an extended discussion with Barry Schultz about this once. I asked him who the fourth best player ever was. He went with David Greenwell. Said he had won everything. If I remember, his top 7 or so was:

1. Climo (he put him #1)
2. McBeth
3. Schultz
4. Greenwell
5. Doss
6. Feldberg
7. Ron Russell

He said Ricky could get there, and Will if he got healthy. He also said Elaine and Juliana should be considered for #2. Although Elaine was standing like 10 feet away, so maybe he was just buttering her up. (Jk lol.)

For men, I would go:

1. Climo
2. McBeth
3. Schultz
4. Doss
5. Feldberg

I don't care how much he won, Hammock is not a nice person.

Considering he had one leg in the Climo/Schultz era and the other leg in the McBeth/Wysocki/etc era.

I wish I had more to offer this thread but I honestly didn't follow pro DG much until the post-produced rounds became so easy on the eyes.
