Thanks for joining me again today on Putt and Approach Radio. I’ve got my first in studio guest, Matt Nemmers, to talk about about disc golf leagues. How to start one, how to run one, and how to keep people coming back. A lot of great stuff from Nemz, but I do want to warn you that being a sailor he does cuss like one. So there’s your disclaimer. If you don’t like cussing then sorry but you don’t want to miss this episode especially if you think running a league is in your future. So put on your earmuffs and enter into the dirty mind of Matt Nemmers with me today on the show.
If you didn’t know, Matt writes some pretty cool Facebook notes. They’re really well written and they’re all about disc golf. But thanks for coming on the show Nemmers, really appreciate you taking time out of your busy, limited Navy days to come talk to me about leagues.

Welcome to Putt and Approach Radio, I'm your hose Connor Kisling. Today's episode is a little different than normal. I had on Matt Nemmers, better known on facebook as DG Nemz. We went a little bit over the usual hour so due to my restrictions from my podcast host I won't be able to release the whole episode until after the first of November. But, I did want to get something up for all you guys. So what you're about to hear is the second half of the show where Nemmers answers all of your facebook questions. Before we get into that I want to remind everyone that before I record with every guest I post on the facebook page giving you the opportunity to post questions for that weeks guest. So keep your eyes out for those posts on facebook.com/PuttandApproachRadio.
The full episode is available to patrons. If you're not a patron then head over to Patreon.com/Puttandapproachradio and donate a dollar or more a month to get early access to the full episode with Matt Nemmers where he talks about disc golf leagues and what makes his 515 League so successful.
Thanks for listening to Putt and Approach Radio.
Thanks for coming back for another episode of Putt and Approach Radio. If this is your first time thanks for checking out the show. Got another great guest in Jacob Sanders. Had a great time with Jacob today; got to learn about a lot about him. We had a ton of questions submited on facebook so keep your eyes out for those posts to get your questions answered on air. Jacob answered all those questions as well as shared his beginings and his short career to becoming one of the best disc golfers in the area. If you don't know Jacob you will by the end of the show.
Catch Jacob at a course near you where he'll be shredding it and throwing 5 times further than you. Make sure to keep your eyes out for this kid. He's got a big heart for getting kids into the sport and will continue to help his younger teammates in Gannon Buhr and David O'Meara (who honestly don't need much help...)
Be sure to support Jacob's sponsor Iron Lion by stopping by the shop out by Grandview Disc Golf Course in Des Moines. If you haven't make sure to check out episode 16 with the owner of that shop.

Technology was completely against this episode happening. Skype failing, computers restarting and mic problems couldn't stop Justin and I from having a great coversation for this episode. Justin brought a lot of cool information to the table today regarding some Des Moines disc golf history as well as what the future might hold for us here in Des Moines. Really glad we were able to make it work. I will definitely have Clue back on for another episode in the future to talk about his run in with Barry Schultz and other disc golf legends.
Make sure you stop by the Iron Lion shop at 2825 Hubbell Ave, Des Moines, IA 50317 where you'll find a great selection of discs, apparel, bags and more. Not to mention two cool guys Justin and Jacob Mott that will try and crack funny jokes. Also head over to facebook and like the Iron Lion page at Facebook.com/IronLionDM. Iron Lion puts together quite a few tournaments every year here in Iowa; most recently the Tim Selinski US Masters tournament which you need to check out on Central Coasts youtube channel.

Kurt Conrad is back! This time he lets me pick his brain about PDGA ratings and how the system works behind the scenes. I was pretty confused about what the PDGA was doing to calculate my and others ratings. I now have a better understanding of what the PDGA does and why they do it thanks to Kurt. I hope you can learn a thing or 2 and know a bit more about what goes into your rating.
Uploading this podcast was a bit of a challenge but I was able to post it to the Patreon page so if you want better quality audio head over to Patreon.com/Puttandapproachradio to donate and get that episode. With my current host, Podbean, I am limited to 100 MB of data that renews the first of every month. With that being said I won't be able to upload any more episodes after today since I've reached my limit. And from now on the 'regular' podcast feed will be available to everyone in a lower quality audio file to save space and be able to upload all my episodes each month. Everyone who donates to the Patreon campaign will also receive a Putt and Approach Radio sticker along with the higher quality episodes.
I would also love for everyone who listens to the podcast to follow and share on social media. The facebook page can be found at Facebook.com/Puttandapproachradio as well as on instagram @PuttandApproachRadio and finally don't forget to subscribe to the podcast to stay up-to-date on the latest episodes from PnA Radio.

Today I've got Mitch Rainey, Co-owner of NorthStar Disc Golf, an up-and-coming disc golf company who has been making their name in the last couple of years running non-sanctioned tournaments but this year has been huge for NorthStar. They've recently opened up a brick-and-mortor store in Mason City as well as running a series of 8 tournaments with a series finally. Join Mitch and I as he tells me how NorthStar came to be and how he, his brother Alan Cooper and friend Ryan Kilborn, plan to continue to grow.

Got a few things to talk about this week on the podcast. Kind of cramming a few different things into this episode. This week I've decided to take a look at some players and where they stand in the Disc Golf Pro Tour series according to their points system. I also look forward to the next DGPT event, the Idlewild Open down in Burlington Kentucky as well as spinning back the clock to the Ledgestone Insurance Open where I discuss who won and how. I also get into some of the complaints about the Ledgestone and what I and other players think should be changed for future events. This episode is more along the lines of tournament coverage which aren't my favorite to address solo but I did my best and editted out a lot of "uhm" and awkward pauses as to enhance your listening experience. Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the show!
