I haven't seen a ton of different Underground content out there yet, but the Underground Interviews on youtube have been mostly good so far. There have been a couple of disc reviews out there as well. Honestly, basic stuff that has been missing from Discraft the last several years.

They have a junior team member that is making some cute/funny videos. (https://www.facebook.com/bulldogdiscgolf/) Vincent Goodman.

I applied on day 1 and never heard anything back. The only people that I have seen get on there have had past sponsorships already. I wouldn't expect anything if you're just a regular joe like I am.

Doesn't really change what I'll throw or branded clothing I'll wear when I play. I just won't be obligated to post on social media about it (even though I do from time to time on instagram/fb)

If Discraft Underground drives new players to these endevours, that would be great. We will see how much it does. Discraft has been great to work with, in regards to my club. They have promised wonderful support and sponsorship to growing the game in this area.
Many of the videos are on youtube as well.

I did as well, but I wasn't expecting anything either.

My 9 yr old daughter was picked up on Discraft Underground a couple weeks ago. She's the first Junior girl on the team. She has been throwing Discraft since she started playing last year. Aside from the disc sponsorship its more about social media presence. Something new to her and I. Either way looking forward to this 2019 Season.

I love the one year later improvement video! She crushes now! My wife is due in a couple of months and what I really want is a disc golf daughter.

Our club founder applied and is now a member of the Discraft Underground team. He runs a weekly glow league (for 5+ years), runs our club and we host 7-8 tournaments a year with 4-5 being PDGA sanctioned events. We are also members of the MDGO for however many years running. He has thrown Discraft ever since I met him so this was right up his alley. Not sure about social media presence as I dont partake myself.

This last tournament she was in. She had a mixed card from M50 down to Novice/Rec players, in 4 out of the 21 holes she out drove them. Its been amazing watching her pick up disc golfing so quick. Sadly I have to admit I don't out drive her by much lol. Lately she has been throwing 160-165g discs and still getting pretty good distance with them.

We also run a bimonthly meet up group for kids called the Junior Chain Smashers here in the Austin,Tx area. Its been slower due to the weather but our next meet up we should have a great turn out. We are feeding all who attend as well as having some prizes to give away to promote the group more. I recently purchased shirts for the ones who have been attending and now with those shirts we are getting more interests.

Been following her on IG, it's crazy at 9 what's she's able to do with a disc, if she sticks with it it's gonna be something amazing. You got any of the shirts you can ship up here? I'll buy one.

Junior Chain Smasher shirt? I will be putting in another order in the next couple of weeks.


She picked up disc golfing really quick. She really doesn't play as much. She can crush throws but struggles a bit on technical shots like tunnel ones. She is getting better though. She can flick too but doesn't practice it much that she doesn't have confidence on doing it at tournaments.
