New Additions to Discmania's US Promotion Team

We are happy to announce that we have reinforced our North America Team by two players familiar to many of you. They are Kyle Sawtelle (22) and Eric Oakley (26). Eric is from Salt Lake City in Utah and he has played most of his career in Dallas/Ft. Worth area in Texas. Kyle hails from Clearwater, Florida.

In addition to being fast developing players, they are both passionate disc golf promoters. Eric is planning to organize clinics, camps and tournaments in Utah and practices hard to become a professional disc golfer. Many of you have seen Kyle on the McBeast Challenges and McBeast Diaries on SpinTV. Kyle’s short-term goals are to become a 1000 rated player and to win an open division tournament. But without further adieu, meet the new faces:

1) Welcome to Team Discmania! What does becoming sponsored by Discmania mean to you?

Kyle: Thank you, it means a lot! I have always been a big fan of the PD and P2 but over the past few years I have gotten to see how Discmania is helping the sport grow, through DiscGolfPark and events like the European Open. I believe that the courses and events that Discmania installs and runs make our sport look its most professional! I am excited to be a part of the disc golf movement that Discmania is leading and I can't wait to represent them as an ambassador and a player of the sport!

2) Tell us a little bit about your bag - Which Discmania models are your favourites and why?

Kyle: I am carrying the Discmania Grip Bag which is easily the nicest disc golf bag I have ever known. My favorite putter is the P2, it is the only putter I use and I carry 4, 2 P-Line for putting, 1 S-Line for upshots and 1 C-Line for driving. My favorite midrange is the MD3, the three types of plastic I use it in (glow, C-Line, and P-Line) all have distinct flights and I love being able to use the same mold for a variety of shots. My favorite fairway driver is the C-Line PD, if I could only play a round with one disc it would be this one! My favorite distance driver is the S-Line DD. It does not fly the furthest but I am always confident in hitting my lines and throwing quality golf shots with this disc, forehand and backhand.

3) The stage is yours! Anything you'd like to share with our readers?

Kyle: I'd like to share that I am always active on Instagram (@kmoney43527) and Facebook and I'm always open to answering questions about disc golf or anything! I currently live in Clearwater FL where I play in a softball league, play ball golf, go fishing, and hangout with friends in my down time from training and practicing disc golf.

1) Welcome to Team Discmania! What does becoming sponsored by Discmania mean to you?

Eric: Thank you, I am still in shock about it! I am pumped to represent Discmania! This has been something I have been working towards for quite awhile now and feel like I have accomplished something great. Being with Discmania will not only help me improve my game, but will help me grow the sport locally with tournaments and clinics. I have been throwing Discmania for about 3-4 years now and to be given the opportunity to represent Discmania on and off the course is a great honour. I can’t wait to share my passion for the company with everyone. Discmania is pushing the sport in all the right directions and I am excited to be a part of that growth. I hope to build on this and contribute as much as I can to helping Disc Golf and Discmania grow.

2) Tell us a little bit about your bag - Which Discmania models are your favourites and why?

Eric: Right now I am in a Discmania Grip Bag --- they really are the best bags around. I like having a bag of the same molds with discs in different stages of wear. My favorite disc in the Discmania line up is the D-Line P2. This was one of the first Discmania discs I bought close to 4 years ago and it has been a staple in my bag ever since. I carry four D-Line P2s in my bag at all times, two are throwers in different stages of wear and two are strictly for putting and approaching. The D-Line P2 only gets better with age, so having multiples in different stages of wear gives me more options when determining my shot selection. I am always confident with a D-Line P2 in my hand. When I do need to throw a midrange I am using the Glow MD3. These are the best midranges I have thrown; they handle torque well and can be trusted on many different lines. The MD3 helps fill a hole in my bag that gives me more opportunities on the course to be successful. My go to fairway driver is the C-Line FD. With a good neutral flight and tremendous glide, the C-Line FD gives me pinpoint accuracy and full confidence. Having the versatility of the C-Line FD always makes my bag feel complete. My favorite and go to max distance driver is the C-Line PD2. I generally like using the early/first run PD2s but have become very fond of the recently released Flatter Jolly Launcher PD2s as well. I like carrying close to five or six PD2s in my bag at a time, all in different stages of wear. The PD2 handles a plethora of shots to help tackle any course.

3) The stage is yours! Anything you'd like to share with our readers?

Eric: I want to say thanks to everyone for making this opportunity possible. I am active on Instagram (@theericoakley) and Facebook and would love to answer any questions about Discmania, Disc Golf, or anything. I recently have started a hashtag that is used on Instagram and Facebook, #putterpants, and would love to see that grow even more. Putterpants is a symbol to remember to not only enjoy each and every round but to enjoy each and every day. I also have a Disc Golf Blog (iamadiscmaniac.blogspot.com) that talks about many different Disc Golf situations, along with some Discmania disc reviews. When I am not on the course or in the field, I spend my time working as a substitute teacher, coaching/training kids playing Futsal, playing soccer/futsal, and catching up with friends. Remember to always have the most fun!

On behalf of the whole Discmania family, welcome aboard Kyle & Eric!
