McBeth earned most of his wealth from sponsors and the prize money (over $500k) he received from the tournaments he participated in.
In 2018, Paul inked a 4-year deal with Discraft.
”My goals aligned perfectly with Discraft’s model, and the openness that Discraft has with their players and employees has made this transition easier than I ever expected,” McBeth told Ultiworld Disc Golf. He went on to say: ”We have a very similar vision for the future and the growth of the sport and there is no better time than now to start in heading that direction.”
”I think it’s good when other companies are offering [contracts] to players because it kinda starts a competition,” Paul said in an interview with PDGA. ”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.”
In February 2021, McBeth signed a $10 million endorsement contract with Discraft to represent the company through 2031.
”It’s mind-blowing to me to think about that 17-year-old me – or even before that, 14-year-old me – made the right move back then to put myself in this position and be able to propel the sport to potentially the next level,” Paul stated.
From 2005 to 2018, he was sponsored by disc golf brand and manufacturing company Innova Champion Discs.
In 2020, McBeth bought a McLaren 570S Spider, a luxury sports car that features a soulful 562-hp twin-turbo V-8. The car sells at retail starting at $208k. Therefore, professional disc golfer Paul McBeth has an estimated net worth of $8 million.
