Nick Newton and Steve Rico are going on tour this year repping Legacy (per the usual), which will be nice as Rico was MIA this year.
That thumber ace he had earlier this year was probably one of the coolest shots I have seen on a stream. Definitely not the "best" shot but for shear fun factor...

Personally, speaking primarily with your performance seems a little odd to me.

"Okay performance, I just want to point out that you've not been up to snuff lately. I mean, what's with that?"

In a time where much of communication occurs through social media, and everyone is there, no one who has a pulse, unless they're my age, is not communicating in that venue, no matter what their performance is.

Oakley as a sponsored player doesn't move a particular mold, but he does a lot of work to make DD more visible and consequently sell more discs. I'd wager that more casual disc golfers know who Eric Oakley is than about half the players in the top 25 world rankings.
Look, if that ballerina throwing stance doesn't sell discs, I don't know what will.

And maybe not best moment, but funniest was definitely him swimming for discs as the lead card passed by (can't remember and can't be bothered to look up what tournament).

Some people speak with their play and others with words. The point is to be engaging in some form or another. Make that money with whatever skills you got.

Oakley has the "cool, fun guy on tour" slot locked down.

Seems to be a very DD type of player team vibe. Oakley, the lefty with the orange fro, aj risley, and both Paige's. Seems like any of them would make for a fun card
