Looking up Dustin Keegan in the web, I saw only evidence of a pretty cool guy for all he does for the DG community, plus he's from Eugene, one of my favorite towns, and, I think he likes Olympique Lyonnais, my #1 football club.

I'm voting Keegan!
Isn’t this a long-term joke because Brother Dave didn’t have any clue who Dustin Keegan was and someone posted Dustin’s In the Bag vid? While Dustin was sponsored by DGCRs most hated manufacturer, Dynamic Discs?

I may be mistaken.

Casey, an AMA thread refers to “Ask Me Anything” and generally used on another non-disc golf specific site, (https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/)
for actors, authors etc to answer questions from fans (while usually promoting their latest project).

So you would make a thread, title it something like

“I’m Casey 1988 and I’m a DGCR legend, AMA”

And then we would ask you questions, that you may pick and choose to answer.

Please do this.

I thought Quest AT was DGCR most hated manufacture. Yep still in buisness look up the only place they sell on Amazon, from time to time new style Champion/Z discs are sold on there.

The guy is a 2 handicap in ball golf and spent several years trying to become a pro golfer....


I'm sure he has some idea about course management and with golf rounds typically coming in a 4.5-5hrs, I doubt pace of play will be an issue either.

Quest is seen more as comic relief, imo. Salient is DGCR's most hated manufacturer.

Oh right sorry, I missed the Sailent Era as I was not playing or looking at new molds in that time. BTW you can still get some of the old Salient Backpack's on Amazon price is very low but not enough to have people buy them, pictures are poor for most of them. Also the few discs that Yikun discs made for Sailent, is still making some of those discs if they had been making the mold for Sailent discs with a simple changing the name.

I never understood the hate for Sailent as again I missed the era.

I see major Foot faults being his downfall in the game with just that little clip in putting that he will do worse on drives not on tee. I do see him cash in his first season in a tournament that is A tier or higher.

A bunch of boisterous overpromising and then underdelivered. Then their customer service rep was as bad as bad can be.


Then they made the mistake of trying to reinvent the PDGA... with Hooter's girls, lol. If you get bored sometime, go find the American Disc Golf Tour thread...

Somebody attempted the same with the PGA and making a Hooters tour in the 1990's that payed poor if at all in some places and everyone had to use the same exact white ball with hooters logo on it.
