While most eyes were focused on the USDGC in South Carolina on October 4-6, more local players took to the courses of Bittersweet Ridge and Pineland Farms to compete in the Maine State Championships. 85 players faced off in 8 divisions on the Pro Loop and Sweetside courses, in North Yarmouth, and the Minuteman and Patriot, in New Gloucester.

Not surprisingly, there was a familiar face on the podium. Nathaniel DeLisle took care of business in the AM2 division and won by 11 strokes. Nate has had a remarkable season but this championship was really a testament to his hard work this season. The 3 courses Nate played were the Sweetside at Bittersweet Ridge, the Patriot, and the Minuteman, both at Pineland Farms.

He came out firing on an incredibly windy Friday and was in second place by a couple of strokes. Nate's play improved the second day where he took a commanding lead and shot a 61 on the Pineland Patriot; a very demanding course that is over 7,000 feet long!

His last round was the icing on the cake though, as Nate managed to score a 45 on the Minuteman. That round was rated 991, and is Nate's highest recorded round in tournament play to date. He ended up throwing 15,981 feet over 159 throws in 3 days.

Sabattus Disc Golf is proud to sponsor Nate as he works hard towards his goal of becoming a professional disc golfer. He remains focused on his game as he attended the Maine Player's Tour, followed by his next tournament which will take place in our own backyard at the SDG Open on October 27.

I’m a sports management student at USM and for the most part I don’t like pay-to-play sports. I’d argue that they’re detrimental to the growth of the sport, target rich people, and ruin the fun nature of sports.

But disc golf is different.

Is Disc Golf Ready For Caddies?
Is Disc Golf Ready For Caddies?

July 15, 2021 1 Comment

We’ve gotten to the point where we need caddies in professional disc golf.

That’s a bold statement Streeter. Why do you think that?

Well let’s start with the fact that disc golf seems to be unique at the moment. Ball golf has caddies and swing coaches at the professional level. As well as their own masseuses, and nutritionists. The swing coach works with a golfer off the course, and a caddy takes care of them while they’re on the course.

Matching Your Arm Speed To The Disc
Matching Your Arm Speed To The Disc

July 07, 2021

Disc golf doesn’t have a rule about which disc you can throw at any point on the course. You can putt with a driver and drive with a putter if you want. As long as it’s PDGA approved you can throw anything you want from anywhere on the course. This is one of my favorite things about the sport. Someone will throw a high speed driver, others, a putter off the tee. The variability of people’s skills is fun to watch.
