Not so much... they want to see their friends succeed regardless of sponsorships and they want to see the company sponsoring them be successful because it benefits them.

A cap is a cap though (doubt that the PMcB hat had some unique characteristics). Why give free ads for somebody else in the same tournament, even if not in your own division?
I remember Paul actually wearing another players hoodie in one of his videos as well. Friends can't support friends?

Due to his age and Covid he hasn't played much in the US, but now plan on being 7 months overseas in 2022. He did play three tournaments in the US in 2019, two A Tiers (Wintertime Open and Memorial) placing 12 and 39 and placed 49 at the Las Vegas Challenge.

Pretty sure wearing PMcB gear will drop your score by at least a stroke or two .

I'm really excited to see how he will perform this year in the US (and in Europe) now that he with this L64 contract for the first time in his career has the possibility to go full pro, playing disc golf full time.

I mean I get the camaraderie and all.

Team colors, yeah, but the personal brand of another pro in the sport you compete in.

Not saying I object to it. Its just out of the ordinary vis a vis other professional sports. Perhaps someone will find a similar example from another sport but right now any big sport at least, I just dont see it.

In the NBA, people wear wear Kyries signature shoes, paul georges signature shoes, jordans, Dame Lillards signature shoes, pretty long list. Most professional sports are team based and require uniforms but Individual sports probably hard pressed to find another golfer wearing a tiger woods branded hat, so i get what you are saying but this is still a fringe sport as much as people think its big time. its not.

Professional golfers never wear the same shirt twice in tournament play. We see "pro" frolfers in the same outfits week after week. Its starting to get better, at least i see less collared shirts with basketball shorts that i did in the past. When i see a player not PM in a PM hat it doesn't surprise me.

Was it Simon or Eagle that told Kyle Klein that Kyle can't beat them wearing their shirt?

Eagle.
And later he claimed he was trying to spur DM on to get Kyle his own shirt made.
