Disc golf can be summed up as golf played with a Frisbee, but it cannot be reduced to a simple vacation hobby or beach activity. It is a real sport, recognized as such for forty years, integrated since 1985 into the International Flying Disc Federation (WFDF). It has 165,000 licensees and 7,100 courses in 80 countries. And a star, Paul McBeth, who just signed a ten-year, $ 10 million sponsorship deal. And there you start to take disc golf a little more seriously.
The announcement was made on February 24 by Paul McBeth himself on his YouTube channel. Legend of his sport, the Californian (30 years old) revealed to have extended his partnership with the manufacturer of frisbees Discraft, one of the leaders in the sector. “It’s incredible to see today that the teenager that I was made the right decision, that of working to make this sport grow,” said McBeth, who will receive $ 1 million a year until 2031.
