Dynamic Discs has more Juniors then most other companies. Maybe the thought is to try to retain these people once they went to MPO and FPO if they keep playing Disc Golf at a competitive level. That is not a great strategy and would about as odd as current strategy of signing on the social media disc golf players that throw only the three brands to the lower non full time touring tiers.

After Paige Shue, that leaves Tina Oakley @ 891 rated and brought in $18.00 in 2019 tour earnings as the only other FPO pro on their touring team. Really is surprising to me because I (perhaps wrongly) assumed that FPO was a big thing for them.
They still have that redheaded Cynthia girl that killed it on Champs vs Chumps. She's like the female version of Arlinghaus, should be a household name fairly soon.

And at least they got rid of Keegan. Addition by subtraction.

Yeah, Mr. Rusco if you're reading this I am now willing to accept your sponsorship now that I won't be associated with Keegan. I'll throw anything you give me no matter how stupidly named they are.

Cynthia Ricciotti. She seems to have a pretty solid game already.

Just curious, why do you dislike Keegan so much?

At school she's doing wrestling over the wintertime. If the coach is making the team hit the weights (that's a wrestling thing, right?) then she'll be in pretty great shape come the springtime! She already throws pretty far, so that should be something to see.

Sure it΄s good to have juniors, but if DD can΄t hold on to them when they start to get good...like Zack....what then?

Long-term DGCR posters have had this running debate for years that seemed to have been settled when Paul switched to Discraft.
We learned two things, at least:
1. It's the archer. PM switches to Discraft and wins a bunch, including Worlds in his first year with the new plastic.
2. It's the arrow. PM switches to Discraft and disc sales go through the roof.

It'll be interesting to see if DD jettisoning and losing most of their talent will harm their disc sales.
Only Jeremy will see the sales figures, so we may never know, but it'll be interesting to see if they go recruiting next year...

I dunno. I think only the superstars sway disc sales. The "average pro" not so much.

This is actually quite surprising. I thought Stokely was basically done with disc golf, focusing on his IT-business. Also, his personality and um... history is kind of different than the style / public image of DD. However, a really solid player and pretty much a legend in the sport for those who remember.
