Send your answers to email@example.com with the subject heading: DISC GOLF BAG PRODUCT TESTER. We're looking for observant, articulate, succinct disc golfers, not fan boys, so, while we do enjoy hearing how much you love our bag, that's not the best way to land a product tester gig.
A few bad answers to question 2:
Make it bigger.
Make it smaller.
Make a (insert your favorite color) bag.
A few GOOD answers to question 2:

The Professional Disc Golf Association National Tour
The "Steady" Ed Memorial Masters Cup, the third tournament of the PDGA National Tour, is well underway, and Team GripEQ did very well. Paul McBeth and Nate Doss are tied for second in the MPO, with Philo Brathwaite, Ricky Wysocki, Steve Brinster, and Avery Jenkins all in the top 20. In the WPO, Valarie Jenkins holds the lead, with teammates Paige Pierce and Catrina Ulibarri tied for second.
But the best GripEQ round rating for the day belongs to Patrick Brown, who shot a blistering 1067 to lead the Masters division. He's 5 strokes ahead of Ken Climo and Micah Dorius. Not a bad first round!
Jim Oates is four strokes back in the Grandmasters division.
