Professional disc golfer Paul McBeth is making history in the sport.

Already No. 1 in the PDGA’s most recent world rankings, the 30-year-old recently signed a 10-year, $10 million endorsement contract with Discraft — disc golf’s biggest endorsement deal ever. 

McBeth has racked up 130 career wins and $510,680 in career earnings. The Discraft deal is an extension of a four-year contract signed in 2019.

“We outgrew the first deal — the four years — we outgrew that in a year, and we started discussing that we need to restructure things and make it long-term,” said Bob Julio, Discraft team manager. 

McBeth joins Patrick Mahomes and Fernando Tatis Jr. in making contract history over the last year.

  • Mahomes signed a 10-year, $503 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs last summer — the biggest in NFL history.
  • Tatis signed a 14-year, $340 million deal with the San Diego Padres this month — the longest in MLB history.

Disc golf rose in popularity last year when many indoor sports were shut down due to the pandemic. The sport saw an 84% jump in press coverage between January and April 2020 alone.
