ahh...explains a few things about this guy. I always thought he was a thinker on the course. He shows little to no face emotion on the course. Definitely an interesting situation to watch, no disrespect to Calvin but I can't see him moving a lot of discs in the media driven commercial world. In regards to being a Chemist, he could start that career later in life if he wanted to.

If nikko continues to shape up his attitude and shoot top 5, i definitely can see someone forking out some cash for him. I definitely see Hammes staying but am very unsure about the others. Hammes is a 20 y.o. SLINGER that i expect anyone would scoop up in a minute. He's just gotta keep his emotions in check after his camera slip up earlier this season

I 100% agree. I think he could be a media cash cow if he played into that. Without sounding too bromantic, dude has the look for pushing product. Still young enough (around 31?) to appeal to a wide demographic. Will be interesting to see where his disc golf career takes him in 2020. Just seems like, the only thing stopping Nikko from being a major super star in this sport...is Nikko.

I have to wonder about signing multi-year deals like that. I'm sure the stability of being locked in for the next 3 years is nice, but with the growth of the sport and contracts, I feel like taking a year by year approach early on may be more lucrative in the long term for breakout players like Tattar. She is just beginning to compete at the big events and her pedigree and stock is likely to expand.
