Hey guys my name is Andrew Streeter and I am part of the team at Sabattus Disc Golf in Maine. I was introduced to disc golf by my best friend a little over a decade ago. I've learned how to play disc golf at Sabattus on the Hawk course and started competing in local tournaments in 2015. The Hawk is still my favorite, but I love playing courses everywhere.

I have found disc golf to be a wonderful and welcoming community and I love hearing all the stories people tell about their recent rounds, the new courses they've tried, or the shot that should never have worked but somehow it did.

Many folks work hard to grow the sport by doing a lot of great work. In 2016 I had the opportunity to volunteer at the USWDGC hosted by Sabattus Disc Golf and it led to a fond, funny memory. As a spotter during the rainy first day round, I helped one of the competitors find her disc. Her caddie came over to thank me and as he lifted his umbrella I glimpsed his face and I blurted out "Oh my God, you're Paul McBeth!" Yikes! On one hand it's awesome that I got to meet a 4x (now 5x) world champion for a moment. On the other, gotta play it cool Andrew. Hopefully the next time I introduce myself instead of saying his name awkwardly.

It’s curious sometimes where life leads us. I always thought I’d coach soccer but now I’m enthusiastically going into my second season working at Sabattus Disc Golf. I’m also finishing my college degree in Sports Management at the University of Southern Maine. One of my other interests is writing, so I offered to start composing a few blog posts for SDG, including opinion pieces, and write ups of some events. I would love to hear suggestions of blog topics and what interests you folks have. Please let me know what you think! I hope we can get to know each other and please, stop in to say hi at the pro shop if you’re ever in Sabattus, Maine. I’m always down to talk discs.

May your discs miss all the trees,
Andrew Streeter

Live Disc Golf vs Post Production
Live Disc Golf vs Post Production

February 20, 2021

We’re only a short week away from the start of the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Season at the Las Vegas Challenge! There will be one constant thing however. People arguing over which is better, Post Produced or Live Coverage. (Audible groan emoji.) What’s the big deal; why do people fight about this so much?

I think there are 4 major reasons that people have an opinion about which is more desirable. Both sides have merits about which is “better”.

Glide: The Underrated Flight Rating
Glide: The Underrated Flight Rating

February 15, 2021

I like the 4 number flight rating system. It tells me the things I need to know about the disc before purchasing it. Now I know that every disc flies differently for every person, but I appreciate that companies give you a general idea of what a disc is going to do.
