  16. UDisc Live Drops Tap-In Putts From Stats

     

    UDisc Live announced it will be adding a new statistic to its professional disc golf offering. Or rather, dropping some measurements to make an important stat more accurate.

    The introduction of C1X Putting eliminates tap-ins from counting toward a player’s Circle 1 putting percentage. Going forward, putts from inside 3.3 meters (10 feet) will be excluded to “provide a clearer picture of putting skill.”

    After months of teasers, Nate Doss and Valarie Jenkins announced the Bend, Oregon taproom of Bevel Craft Brewing will be holding its grand opening in April. The brewery released the date to its newsletter subscribers; you can sign-up on the brewery website.

    Doss and Jenkins have stepped away from touring over the past year or so to focus on the physical brewery. They previously brewed collaboration beers around the country, often times releasing the brews to coincide with tournaments, such as Slight Headwind Saison with Radius Brewing Company of Emporia, Kansas during Glass Blown Open week.

    The European Open has made a major step in signing a 3-year deal with the PDGA to retain Major status through the 2021 season. The Nokia, Finland, event has traditionally only held the Major distinction every other year, with the last coming in 2017.

    “This agreement is really important for European disc golf scene. The European Open has been the leading tournament in Europe since 2006. Now, we can bring the World’s best players to Finland every year,” says Jussi Meresmaa, founder of the event, in the announcement.

    Three-time Finnish Champion Leo Piironen won’t be on the market this offseason as he preemptively signed a 2-year extension with Discmania to keep him with the company through 2020.

    “We wanted to do an extension before the previous contract would have expired so we came out with the new deal,” Piironen said in a statement. “This kind of action from a sponsor is really something else and it gains my respect.”

    Dynamic Discs will have another woman on tour this year as Missy Gannon was signed to a 1-year extension and promoted to the Touring Team.

    “Just over a year and a half ago I was an amateur player and they took a chance on me then,” Gannon told Ultiworld Disc Golf. “Now, as a professional, they want me on their tour team. It wasn’t difficult to convince them of the importance of growing the FPO field on tour and how I would like to add my name to that list. They’ve really got my back.”

  31. 5-Year Innova Contract For Wysocki

    While not all details about Ricky Wysocki’s new Innova deal may be known, we do now know he’s signed a 5-year contract to keep him with the manufacturer through 2023.

    “The 5-year agreement means longevity,” Wysocki said. “It also helps set a precedent for long term contracts in the sport, which I feel could help more young players pursue disc golf as a profession.”
