Paul McBeth is making moves again. The 5-time World Champion first raised the bar in 2019 when he signed a 4-year contract with Discraft worth $1 million.
Paul raised the bar again today when Discraft announced that they had inked a deal with Paul worth $10 million over the next 10 years.
I remember when Tiger Woods was the first golfer to make $1 million in a single year and now, just over 20 years later, Paul McBeth becomes the first disc golfer to make $1 million in a single year.
The future of disc golf is massive. It’s only continued to grow during the pandemic.
