You might already know a little bit about Nate from his tournament play the last couple seasons, but we thought we'd tell you a bit more about him. We caught up with the Sabattus Disc Golf sponsored player the other day during a casual round on our Falcon Course where we asked him some questions and captured some video of him in action.

Nate began his disc golf journey the way many players have, he was introduced to the sport by his dad and older brother. The Maine native from Buckfield started playing at the age of 3, so he's already got almost a full decade of experience under his belt at the age of 12!

Nate's had quite a bit of success the last couple years. Back in 2017 he participated in the World Championships for 10 and under and took 2nd place! He has won 3 PDGA events in 2019, and his ranking is 67 points higher than this time a year ago.

After the most recent ratings update in September 2019, Nate jumped up 17 points to his highest rating ever of 923. Nate's ratings increase is no accident; he's climbed over 200 points in the last 3 years and he's always pushing with rounds well above his rating. In fact, he is currently ranked among some of the highest MJ 12 players in the world.

With a couple of big tournaments coming up to close out the Maine disc golf season, Nate's going to continue to rely on his favorite discs, the Innova Firebird and the Innova Wraith. He will of course be taking part in the Sabattus Disc Golf Open on Sunday, October 27, as well as the Maine State Championships at Pineland Farms, October 4-6.

Please join Sabattus Disc Golf in congratulating Nate on all of his accomplishments as he continues to grow as a player and pursues his goal of becoming a professional disc golfer.

We are wicked proud of him!

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.
