I think it’s good when other companies are offering [contracts] to players because it kinda starts a competition. That’s what we’re out here doing – this is a competition, and I think companies should be competing for players just as much as we should be competing for wins.
— Paul McBeth

In his first long-form interview since switching sponsors, four-time PDGA World Champion Paul McBeth confirms the details of his new contract (3:20) and opens up about why he decided to move on (5:30). The California pro also talks getting the blessing of new teammate Nate Doss (9:15) and the role his agent played in negotiations (10:40). Later, McBeth discusses the impact the move can have on other players and the sport as a whole (15:00); if he had second thoughts before really committing (18:20); and the recent changes to the Disc Golf Pro Tour’s media landscape (27:25). And, of course, there’s plenty of discussion about what he’ll throw.

Later, Steve and Sara give their take on all of the recent news and share what they’re grateful for this Thanksgiving.
