    After initially making the move for the 2020 season, Dustin Keegan will spend 2021 and 2022 under the Discmania shield after signing a new 2-year deal.

    “With my passion to grow the sport via course design and development plus my drive to still compete at the highest level, Discmania and DiscGolfPark are the perfect places for me to excel at what I love to do,” said Keegan.

    Keegan spent two years with Dynamic Discs before the Discmania move last year. He played 12 events in 2020 and his best finish was 16th at the Green Mountain Championship. Keegan is currently rated 1014.

    Shue relocated from Emporia, Kansas to the Charlotte, NC area during 2020 and took some time away from the main tour to head to Alaska for an event. She had two top five DGPT finishes in six Elite Series events, and added a fourth place effort in her season opener in Las Vegas.

    The 2018 PDGA Pro World Champion is currently rated 934.

    Minnesota’s Noah Meintsma has signed a 2-year deal to join DGA through the 2021 season. He will be tied with Matt Bell as the highest-rated player on the roster.

    “I’m super excited…all the molds feel amazing and I’m more ready than ever to get back to the full tour,” said Meintsma.

    Meintsma had a top five showing at the Dynamic Discs Open this past season to go along with a couple of runner-up finishes at A-tier events. He’s been touring full-time since the 2018 season and is coming off a sponsorship with Innova.

    Nikko Locastro, who has had one of the more curious sponsorship histories in the sport, has signed an early 2-year extension to his initial deal with Westside Discs to keep him with the company through 2023. He originally agreed to a 2-year deal through 2021 before last season.

    The Westside move seems to have agreed with Locastro, as he is at his highest player rating in more than five years — 1031 — and won his first Elite Series event in almost a decade at the 2020 Preserve Championship.
