2020 Vision: Presenting the Innova Star Team! ? “The 2020 Innova Star Team represents the top 14 players on Innova’s extensive roster. These eight men and six women are an extremely talented group ready to take on the world this coming season! I am personally thrilled to welcome our Finnish 1-2 punch of @eveliinasalonen and @hennablomroos to the top team in disc golf! As captain, I am looking forward to an exciting season, I know I speak for our entire team when I say we appreciate our fans so much, and we pledge to put on a great show!” –Nate Sexton @frisbeenate Team Captain. More team announcements are coming in the weeks ahead so stay tuned! #teaminnova #innovadiscs
One of the more intriguing known players out of contract this offseason was Calvin Heimburg, who had a coming out party in 2018 and bookended 2019 with PDGA National Tour victories.
A promotion to Innova’s Star Team for 2019 didn’t guarantee Heimburg would stay with the manufacturer, but a promotional video this week featured the lanky Floridian as part of the 2020 team.
Ultiworld Disc Golf confirmed with Innova Team Manager Jonathan Poole that Heimburg signed a 2-year extension with Innova to keep him under contract through 2021.
