I agree people can infer what the want, but I think it's hard not take her wording, and complete omission of her previous sponsor as anything but 'They didn't have my back.'

You can't expect her to come right out and trash them.
I think it is public relations 101 to not mention your old sponsor when announcing your new sponsor. Her job is to bring attention to DGA. It'd be a blunder to mention a rival.

Prodigy also kept Gannon Buhr, who probably has more potential than anybody out there. It takes him awhile to throw and putt but when he does it looks totally effortless. I think he'll become one of those 1050 guys in the next couple of years.

I think his stepping away had less to do with his injury and more to do with his child. If you check his instagram you'll see that his child is basically constantly fighting for their life. The DG community has even pitched in to raise funds for medical treatment.

I have seen that. But he was out of elite company before his kid came along. The shoulder impingement wrecked him.

Yeah, but they probably barely have to pay him. He’s like 16.

Gannon Buhr is absolutely an elite player in the coming years. He's practically built to whip discs and his form is already very tuned. Training and competing at an elite level through adolescence is going to take performance in this sport to a new level.

A Gannon Buhr that is filled out in the arms and shoulders and has a few years of grizzled high level tournament experience sounds like a *monster*

Yes, it was an over generalization.
I know that personalities of disc golfers range from shy introverts to outgoing "look at me" types. But generally speaking I feel the majority of disc golfers are quiet types who do not feel comfortable in front of the camera and do not enjoy creating media content about themselves.

Of my 20-25 disc golfing friends I would say the majority are wallflowers.
