Hey guys my name is Andrew Streeter and I am part of the team at Sabattus Disc Golf in Maine. I was introduced to disc golf by my best friend a little over a decade ago. I've learned how to play disc golf at Sabattus on the Hawk course and started competing in local tournaments in 2015. The Hawk is still my favorite, but I love playing courses everywhere.

I have found disc golf to be a wonderful and welcoming community and I love hearing all the stories people tell about their recent rounds, the new courses they've tried, or the shot that should never have worked but somehow it did.

Many folks work hard to grow the sport by doing a lot of great work. In 2016 I had the opportunity to volunteer at the USWDGC hosted by Sabattus Disc Golf and it led to a fond, funny memory. As a spotter during the rainy first day round, I helped one of the competitors find her disc. Her caddie came over to thank me and as he lifted his umbrella I glimpsed his face and I blurted out "Oh my God, you're Paul McBeth!" Yikes! On one hand it's awesome that I got to meet a 4x (now 5x) world champion for a moment. On the other, gotta play it cool Andrew. Hopefully the next time I introduce myself instead of saying his name awkwardly.

It’s curious sometimes where life leads us. I always thought I’d coach soccer but now I’m enthusiastically going into my second season working at Sabattus Disc Golf. I’m also finishing my college degree in Sports Management at the University of Southern Maine. One of my other interests is writing, so I offered to start composing a few blog posts for SDG, including opinion pieces, and write ups of some events. I would love to hear suggestions of blog topics and what interests you folks have. Please let me know what you think! I hope we can get to know each other and please, stop in to say hi at the pro shop if you’re ever in Sabattus, Maine. I’m always down to talk discs.

May your discs miss all the trees,
Andrew Streeter

Why It's Worth Spectating A DGPT Event
Why It's Worth Spectating A DGPT Event

September 16, 2021

I watch live disc golf on the Disc Golf Network, and post production like Jomez and GK Pro as well. It’s fair to say I’m a disc golf enthusiast. It’s a job and a hobby that have combined in my life and I get to do what I love every day. Getting to see the pros play in person is a different experience entirely.

So when I got the chance to spectate Smugglers Notch I took it. For 40 dollars (plus a couple dollar processing fee), I was able to get a t-shirt, and spectate the 8 best players in the tournament.

We’re reaching an interesting time in disc golf. Where we’ve got a massive crop of talent at the top. Plenty of other touring pros cash frequently enough without scratching the top 25 in talent and can tour with their winnings and sponsorships.

So let’s take a step back from calling anything other than a win a failure. Improvements from year to year on a course could be a win for some of these players. Finishing top 10 should be considered good for young players. The days of players dominating and winning every single weekend are basically over. Competition is tight at the top, and it’s only getting better.
