It’s not yet 2018, but the first sponsorship moves for the upcoming pro season have already been made.
Oregon-based players Dustin Keegan and Zoe Andyke announced in a video today that they will be sponsored by Dynamic Discs. Both previously represented Innova Discs.
“This is gonna be an amazing, amazing journey,” Keegan said in the video. “We’re gonna take this to another level with the support — us going into schools, us teaching around the country, us playing tournaments all over the world — and we can’t be, honestly, more excited.”
Andyke said that she and Keegan would be amplifying their efforts to bring her Disc Golf Universal Play non-profit, which helps integrate disc golf into physical education curriculum, to a wider platform with Dynamic’s assistance.
“Last year we were able to reach 6,393 students,” Andyke said. “This projected year of 2018, Dustin and I, we hope to more than double that.”
Keegan ended the season battling a shoulder injury and dropped to 63rd in the PDGA’s men’s world rankings. Andyke moved up one slot and is currently the PDGA’s 18th ranked woman. They are both set to kick off their season at the Las Vegas Challenge on February 22.
