    Despite signing a three year extension before the 2021 season, Matt Bell announced he is parting ways with sponsor DGA.

    “To represent DGA for the past three seasons have been an amazing experience full of memories to last a lifetime… The biggest honor of my career so far was having a Signature series putter with Steady Ed’s PDGA #001 included next to mine,” said Bell. “While I will no longer be representing DGA, I hope I can make Ed, Farina, Scott and everyone at DGA proud of the way I represent our sport and share our love of the game with others… I will see you all out on tour in 2022!”

    Gregg Barsby today announced he has extended his contract with Innova for three years, keeping him with the California company through 2024.

    “Growing up in Northern California, most of the great players in the area played with Innova,” said Barsby. “We had such a deep talent pool that it seemed you were forced to learn the game the right way. I owe a lot to all my OGs that showed me the way.”

    Barsby continued: “With that said it has been an honor to have found success throwing a disc all over the place, but even more so to have the Tour Series Eagle with my name on them. It has been my favorite disc since it hit the market, and I have to pinch myself looking at the beautiful Eagles they came out with today!”

    Cole Redalen, who made a national name for himself by shooting his way onto the lead card at this year’s Ledgestone Insurance Open and earning a seventh place finish, will not be renewing with his manufacturer sponsor Discraft for the 2022 season.

    “I am happy and sad to say that my plans for 2022 are beginning to look a bit different. I have decided to part ways with Discraft and move forward with other opportunities in the future,” said Redalen. “I could not be happier with their plastic, representing their brand, and the all around community that came along with it. They have done so much for me this year propelling me into my career and I couldn’t be more grateful!”

    Eric Oakley today announced that he would no longer be representing Dynamic Discs moving forward. He was originally under contract with the Kansas company through 2022 after signing an early extension in 2019.

    “I’ve had a lot of long conversations with Jeremy Rusco, Eric McCabe, and Gabe Diaz-Serrano, and we’ve talked a lot of the future. My goals, their goals. The things we’re trying to do and feel out how we can make things work. We’ve come together, as a business decision that we think it’s best to explore new ground,” said Oakley. “I’m sure we’ll continue to do some stuff together.”

    Estonian Kristin Tattar has signed a four-year sponsorship extension with Latitude 64 worth a guaranteed $500,000, keeping her with the Swedish manufacturer through 2025. Tattar signed a three-year extension with Lat64 before the 2020 season, and while she was still under contract for 2022 the new agreement goes into effect immediately.

    “I am ready to play and tour more in the U.S., all the big tournaments are there,” said Tattar. “So when Latitude 64 gave me the opportunity to commit even more to disc golf it was a no-brainer. I’m happy and grateful to be able to play disc golf for a living, it means everything to me.”

    Tattar has been representing Lat64 since 2017. She is currently the second highest rated FPO player at 978 and won back-to-back DGPT events this season at the Preserve Championship and Great Lakes Open.

  26. Eagle McMahon To Miss DGPT Championship With Shoulder Injury

    Eagle McMahon revealed Wednesday at the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship press conference that he had injured his right shoulder while filming an upcoming video with JomezPro on Tuesday and would be withdrawing from the Tour Championship. Aaron Gossage replaces McMahon in the MPO field.

    “It wasn’t one of the shots that was even filmed. I threw this kinda random ‘fake-out’ 360 where you spin counterclockwise and essentially putt the disc forward. I did that on top of a 360 motion,” said McMahon, explaining the move that led to the injury. “I lunged my shoulder forward and I’m pretty sure I dislocated my shoulder. For a good 2o seconds afterward my shoulder was just hanging there and I had to push it back in. I felt faint and wanted to throw up.”

    Even if we saw it in round 2 as well, Anthony Barela’s ace on hole 7 during the final round of USDGC was no less sweet.

    The 284-foot hole wasn’t the only one to be aced over four rounds. Austin Hannum got the hole in one on hole 1 with his first throw of the event in round 1. There were also a couple of tough ace to bad breaks caught on camera, see Madison Walker and Andrew Marwede.
