We’re doubling up our number of sponsored players from last year! That’s right, Sabattus Disc Golf is proud to announce that we’re continuing to sponsor Nate DeLisle for the 2020 season and we’re also excited to say that Uriyah Kelley will be sponsored as well. Both of these young men exemplify what Sabattus Disc Golf is all about.
Nate and Uriyah have been competitors together since 2017 but for the 2020 season they’ll be competing under the same umbrella of #TeamSDG.
Nate DeLisle #87305 worked with us last year and he showed tremendous growth on and off the course. His cool head and determination are incredible for someone his age. Nate’s been a pleasure to work with and awe inspiring as well. In a year’s span he brought his rating up 60+ points and we know he’ll keep getting better. Nate managed to finish in the top 10 in his division 14/15 times last season and had 11 top 3 finishes! Nate spent the 2019 season dominating in the AM2 division and now he’s moving up and taking his talents to AM1. So I hope all the other players know what they’re getting into when they see his name on the card.
The newest member of #TeamSDG is Uriyah Kelley #98747. He’s known as the Granite State kid and he’s also sponsored by Innova Champion Discs and FlighTowel. Uriyah really demonstrated his love and skill in the sport of disc golf last year at the Champs vs. Chumps hosted by Sabattus Disc Golf. We’re very excited to see what Uriyah is going to do this year and beyond. He’s sitting on 8 wins in 32 career events so a quarter of the time he’s in first place. He played in the 10 and under division last year and this year will be competing in Juniors 12&Under when available, but he’s also going to be in AM2. Those poor AM2’s, just when they thought their young competition was gone, Uriyah steps up to take his place!
I think there’s little doubt that these two will be pros sooner than we all think. We’re happy to make sure that good young talent is recognized and featured. These two work hard every day to improve their game and it certainly shows. Stay tuned as we keep you all posted with updates throughout their 2020 season.

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.
