Any and every player representing the sport the way it should be. The portayal of the sport is in all of us because most people not even knowing the professional players means that you, me and all if us are the face of disc golf. Now if you want the "disc golfer's answer" Ed Hedrick, Dave dunipace, Paul mcbeth, Ricky and Paige, AJ risley, Eric Oakley, Eric mcabe, dare I say cool daddy slick breeze?? Too many to put just one name to the "face of disc golf"

Alright. I now know how to answer this. When people ask who the figurehead is, my answer will be, "I am Spartacus!", and hope I don't then get crucified.

BUT...like Chuck said, you probably don't really want those guys going up before the parks deptartment pleading the case for a new course. It depends.

Seriously, I have never heard it called that before. Probably a really small difference in consumption between the two.

If I had to name one person, it would have to be Steady Ed.

Around here, most of the smokers look like normal dudes and the hippie looking guys play clean.


The face?

Yeah, it's the face of whoever the non-playing normies happen to see.


Within the sport?

McBeth. Let's not kid ourselves.

It's a no brainer... Ken Climo. I guess that's the era I grew up in. The era when the MPO would throw 5 rounds in a three day period.
