Team GRIPeq: Ambassador Team
Below you’ll read about spirited, energetic, and positive disc golfers from all around North America. They make up our Ambassador Team. These athletes compete, create disc golf content, and spread the joy of the sport. They also believe that our disc golf bags are top-quality and the best in the game, committing to representing our brand on and off the course.
The 2024 GRIPeq Ambassador Team
At GRIPeq, we’re dedicated to growing the sport and recognize that we can’t do it alone. Our Ambassador Team is comprised of individuals selected by our in-house team for their positive impact on the disc golf community. We are thrilled with the amazing work accomplished by these humans through their content creation, growing local leagues, production of educational videos, and participation in their tournament scenes. It is heartening to see how they represent our brand with their hard work and dedication.
Finally, let’s give it up for our 2024 GRIPeq Ambassador Team!
First, we are excited to announce that Brian Earhart will continue to represent GRIPeq in 2024, marking his fifth year as a loyal supporter of our disc golf products. We are big fans of his new series Catch, on Jomez, and the educational content he provides through the Disc Golf Pro Tour’s Level Up series. We are thrilled to have him on our team and can’t wait to follow his media journey throughout the year 2024. The disc golf community is lucky to have a talented player and ambassador like Brian.
Let’s all welcome Jo Henderson, one of our favorite disc golf content creators from Canada, back to the scene! Jo has been actively participating in local disc golf tournaments and has achieved three wins in FPO last season. She and her partner, Camm, continue to create great high-end photography and video content promoting disc golf. We truly appreciate her contribution to the sport, and we hope Jo has another great year ahead of her!
Next, we’re excited to have Taylor Chocek on our Ambassador Team for the first time. Taylor is a student and track athlete at the University of Oregon. Her competitive spirit is inspiring, and we’re proud to watch her hard work pay off on the disc golf course and beyond. Be sure to give her a follow and watch her crush a disc 500 feet!
We’re thrilled to add Audrey Wicklander to our Ambassador team in 2024. Audrey’s passion for promoting women’s participation in disc golf makes her an excellent representative of the sport. She is also a skilled competitor in the Michigan FPO scene and has always trusted GRIPeq disc golf bags. We are incredibly proud to have her on our team this year.
We’re pumped to have Phillip-Tyler Belt returning to Team GRIPeq for his second year. Phillip-Tyler is an active member of the US Air Force stationed in Germany. He competed in many European Tour stops last year and plans to play as many European events as possible in 2024. Keep up the great work!
Next, we want to welcome Kelsie Sweeten to her first year on Team GRIPeq as an ambassador! Kelsie started playing disc golf in 2018 and has been encouraging other women to participate and compete locally ever since. As a flight attendant, she has had the unique opportunity to participate in tournaments around the world, including Iceland, Thailand, and Finland. Kelsie relies on GRIPeq disc golf bags to safely carry all her gear during her flights and on the course. We are excited to follow her disc golf adventures this year!
We are thrilled to announce that Sam Minges is joining our GRIPeq Ambassador Team this year! Sam has been playing disc golf for over 14 years and has become a massive fan of GRIPeq. We were particularly impressed by his vast collection of vintage GRIPeq bags from the early 2010s; he once owned 18 different bags! We’re excited to have his support on our team.
