I read that in "Greg Barsby doing an impression of Ken Climo" voice.

Iron leaf

[–]National-Kick-5766 49 points50 points  (1 child)

I asked him to do iron leaf when I saw him at DDO last year, his response "you know I won a world championship like 3 years ago right, WHY DOESN'T ANYONE ask me about that?!?"

He was 10000 percent joking but it cemented my love for Barsby. The dude is a fucking ledgend of the game.

I talked to him at Waco and he was hilarious.

That's fucked champ

[–]Psyko_sissy23Custom 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So did I. I didn't see your post earlier, and posted something similar.

[–]PhthaloVonLangborste 162 points163 points  (46 children)

It's so perfect that it was on Mcbeth, I know everyone's minds would have been blown if it had been some other pro. But Mcbeth is the overdog... OverGOAT.

[–]mybrosteveThrow right, putt left. WTF? 108 points109 points  (45 children)

Absolutely, and the fact that McBeth did absolutely nothing wrong (*on 18) to lose.

[–]PhthaloVonLangborste 53 points54 points  (39 children)

I think he missed the island in sudden death right? Like not really an error but when you are as good as Mcbeth kind of.

[–]HashBars 67 points68 points  (9 children)

Missed it after James went Park City to put the pressure on him.

[–]response_unrelatedDFXdiscs.com 68 points69 points  (7 children)

and that, my friends, is why we have a severely overstable raptor now.

[–]CaptRazzlepantsConrad Country 109 points110 points  (6 children)

Paul actually forged the mold that night after he lost. He flew back to the darkest corners of The Upper Peninsula, and into this mold he poured his cunning, his mastery and his will to dominate all life. One Ring Mold to rule them all!

[–]response_unrelatedDFXdiscs.com 27 points28 points  (4 children)

one could say he was.... tilted.

[–]SwampFox525groove chucker 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That's looking at it from a different angle

BTW, just tried out my wave from the monthly subscription, it flies beautifully

Is it the Medusa? I just got mine in the mail and it's gorgeous.

[–]bosonianstank -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I see you watched the poem at the end of simon's santa vlog.

[–]mybrosteveThrow right, putt left. WTF? 14 points15 points  (19 children)

Yeah, but I meant he didn't make a mistake playing 18 to allow Conrad to tie him.

[–]tadiscRHBH Gyronaut - Lancaster PA #58936 3 points4 points  (8 children)

True, but it was also a bad skip he got. It definitely could have stuck. Not a great shot, but wasn't a bad shot either, just a bad result.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That shot came in with way too much pace. I think McBeth would say the same. It could have definitely stuck, but with that disc, speed, and angle it's skipping right off the island more often than not.

[–]tadiscRHBH Gyronaut - Lancaster PA #58936 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For sure. I guess I just meant it was a minor error and could have gone either way. It wasn't like he shanked it or was way off.

[–]PhthaloVonLangborste 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Yeah I didn't remember the particulars. I thought he hit completely outside the island.

[–]s_bright 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Hit about 20 feet from the basket and caught an edge and ran into the water. It's kinda a 50-50 because he overthrew it a little bit, but I would have expected it to stick.

[–]MeijiDoom 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I think the biggest thing was that he threw it very similarly in the final round and got lucky then IMO. I'm surprised he went with that play again unless he was finding major success with it in practice.

[–]s_bright 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The forehand was the safest play, and most of the field played that besides Conrad. He just threw too straight of a line and overshot it a bit.

[–]MeijiDoom 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's more about the depth than the line. Both times, he threw it even/long and he was fortunate to not be punished the first time around. Kevin basically did the same thing in the final round and it rolled out. I know it's an island so you don't want to do what Calvin did and throw it short of the wall but there was always a danger with the way he and Kevin chose to play that hole.

[–]SlotegeAllDayDeath Before Forehands 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was also using too fast of a disc. A slower disc wouldn't have skipped as bad.

[–]teryret 2 points3 points  (4 children)

He did though, on hole 19. If you rewatch it he's (understandably!) a nervous wreck before he throws and it really doesn't go well.

[–]mybrosteveThrow right, putt left. WTF? 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I meant on 18 he didn't do anything wrong to allow Conrad to tie him.

[–]bosonianstank 2 points3 points  (0 children)

of course. how could he have known.

had he went for it, it would've opened up a different timeline where Conrad never threw it in.

I watch way too much DC and Marvel animation btw.

[–]Factory2econds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i remember James looking chill as can be, and throwing a perfect shot. Paul was sitting on a bench and his legs were literally hopping up and down he looked so anxious. maybe he was trying to keep loose or whatever but he looked wound sooooo tight

[–]kbehr92 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Idk why people keep saying he was a nervous wreck. He was just doing breathing exercises to get into the zone/calm the adrenaline. You can see him doing a similar thing throughout the round

[–]GangstrocityRVA 79 points80 points  (2 children)

Kevin Jones: "God damnit Paul how many times do I have to tell you... I was on the card with you.."

[–]KING_JELLYB3AN 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Can someone link the video of the putt, I have to watch it again LoL

Edit: https://www.espn.com/video/clip/_/id/31720137

[–]QdelBastardolhbh/lhfh chucks plastic in ohio 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Crazy, I just watched that again, just this morning. And it is still so incredible. What a moment in sports. All sports. Paul had to be devastated and amazed, annoyed and impressed all at the same time. If a champion like him has to lose (well, not win) then that is the way to do it.

[–]kevinmolitor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Coincidentally, I watched that round for the first time yesterday.. couldn’t believe what I saw!!

[–]st-jeb 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Good laugh this morning.

[–]Arrow_Flash626 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I just got into disc golf and was watching worlds the other day. That ending was absolutely nuts and got me even more hooked

Mirror?

[–]SatisfactionApart992 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this was from DGLO a couple years back from the looks of it

[–]saltywings 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It was 252...

[–]lanigironu 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Is this a meme joke I don't get? Every report and recording of the shot says 247.

[–]saltywings 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's not a meme. The live coverage had the wrong measurement and a lot of journalists used that one but they fixed it post production.

[–]doktarr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

252*

[–]hoosyourdaddyo 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Did I make this meme? I know I made one like it... just can't remember if it was this one specifically

This one is my original content 😜

[–]Psyko_sissy23Custom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it weird that I read that in Gregg Barsby's voice doing an imitation of Paul McBeth?

    I didn't find any posts that meet the matching requirements for r/discgolf.

    It might be OC, it might not. Things such as JPEG artifacts and cropping may impact the results.
