  21. Sara Sinclair Joins Prodigy

    Former PDGA Radio co-host and 2015 PDGA Rookie of the Year Sara Sinclair is moving from Innova to Prodigy Discs for the 2021 season.

    “I was incredibly flattered when Michael Sullivan reached out letting me know he has been following my journey over the past 18 months as I have experienced lots of personal growth in health, fitness and nutrition as well as my work around female empowerment and authenticity,” said Sinclair in her announcement.

    “The biggest challenge for me will be switching up my discs after throwing Innova for about a decade, but I can’t wait to try some new plastic and start building my bag!”

    Citing injury, frustration, and an ill-timed parking lot fender-bender, Simon Lizotte is ending his season early and withdrawing from this week’s Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship.

    “Since last weekend my elbow has been feeling worse and I had to quit a practice round yesterday. I should have taken a break way earlier,” said Lizotte in a Facebook post. “After weeks and weeks of feeling like nothing is working, I’ve come to a point [where] going home feels like my last option. I tried to push through and make things happen.”

    Lizotte finished 69th at last week’s USDGC. It was the second year in a row he failed to cash at the major.

    Former USDGC champion Nate Sexton announced today that he would be withdrawing from the 2020 event due to an injury sustained during practice over the weekend.

    “I threw a forehand and strained a muscle down here on my side,” Sexton said. “Was hopeful that I would be able to recover in time. Tried Aleve, ice, ultrasound, electro [stimulation], rest — body’s just not doing it.”

    Sexton said he attempted to see how his body felt on Tuesday but was unable to throw a full power forehand. He said will be providing on-course analysis for the USDGC livestream, however.
