Meet Team Upper Park

Upper Park has sponsored players for years. With our recent change in ownership we thought a lot about the connection between the players, our brand, and our collective audiences. Naturally, we want the pro players to help spread the word about our brand, but we also want to help the players grow their brand. Because building our brands together helps #growthesport. It’s a virtuous cycle and aligns with one of our core values of creating legendary relationships.

So we’re doing things a little differently. We’re giving our team dedicated social media support to help share engaging content. We’re signing players with a wide array of backgrounds and ratings because we know they all contribute and share our passion for disc golf. And we have some surprises in store for 2021 and beyond.

So look for lots of great player-related content on our social media channels, follow all of these amazing players, and join us in celebrating this awesome sport.

Bonaventura "Bowen" Amann

Hey! I am Bonaventura Amann. My first tournament was very successful as I made second place in the juniors division with a rating average of 958 which surprised the whole Austrian disc golf community as nobody knew me at this point.

The best part for me is that from now on my brother and I will follow the same lifestyle and tour across Europe throughout the season. I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!

Stanislaus Stan Amann

My first tournament participation in the Austrian mountains in summer of 2016 was where my career as a competitive player began. In the following years I realized what amazing things this sport has to offer and totally got addicted by everything in disc golf. So far I participated at tournaments in 16 different countries. The experiences and friendships I made during those trips are unforgettable and make me always feeling thankful to be part of this game.

Mark Anderson

One of the first real Disc Golf bags I was able to use was an Upper Park Shift back in my early days of playing and to this day is still one of my favorites and I believe the best small form factor disc golf bag on the market. I am very active in playing tournaments all throughout the state of Missouri and surrounding states and am happy to be able to represent Upper Park Disc Golf throughout the year!

The culture & all the wonderful people met across the world have welcomed me, and I’m grateful to do what I love for a living. Looking forward to another great season, and having Upper Park on my back!

Nicole Bradley

I have been playing disc golf competitively since 2012 and enjoy the competition and the friendships made on the course. I can tour this spring and am looking forward to traveling and playing some of my favorite big events again, starting in Vegas. Besides disc golf, I am passionate about most things that get me into the mountains, and you can find me on my mountain bike, snowboarding, or clinging to a warm rock wall. I am also eagerly awaiting the return of live music and all the lovely people that I miss seeing on the dance floor.

I grew up playing Baseball, Football and Basketball. Three sports that I love playing when I'm not on the disc golf course. One of my best friends showed me to this amazing sport. On that day, I witnessed an Ace and have been hooked since. Now I get to travel around the country playing Disc Golf as a Job and meeting so many people.

Niclas Enarsson

Hello, My name is Niclas Enarsson (#46940) and I’m a Disc golfer who lives in Stockholm/Sweden. Born in 1989 and have been playing for over 10 years. My son Charlie was born in March 2018 and of course I got him a PDGA membership(#107575).

The best sound in the world, to hear a disc hit the chains. Keep growing the sport and more courses will pop up!

Andrew Fish

Andrew Fish (he/him/his) plays out of Baltimore, MD, and is also sponsored by Discraft. Fish tours sparingly, but keeps a busy schedule in the mid-Atlantic with 50 career wins, including 10 A-tiers in MPO, as of 2020. He’s known for smooth midrange shots, alleged “sneaky distance”, grimy trucker hats, and whining when people lump him in with ultimate players.

Fish’s preferred UPDG bag is the Shift, but he uses the Rebel on courses with lots of water, because he gets cranky when he loses discs he likes.

I have been playing disc golf competitively since 2015. I have a passion for not just playing disc golf but also running events. I run an annual charity event “Throwing for a Cure” which has raised over $17,500 for the Alzheimer’s Association.

I have had my Rebel bag since 2015 and have used it in every tournament I have ever played in. The comfort and durability of Upper Park Disc Golf bags is truly unmatched!

Reid Frescura

I'm from Holland, Michigan and proud of it. Been playing for 13 years, touring for the past 4 years and have enjoyed every second of it from car camping to playing with some of the best players in the world. As a left handed player, it can be tough out there sometimes, but just as advantageous at other events. I like long walks on the beach, skiing, and little Caesars pizza. Looking forward to hitting next season hard next year.

Greg Hill

Over the past few seasons I have been running a putting league at our local brewery and has quickly become one of the biggest putting leagues in the state. We are averaging 55-65 player per week and have introduced over 50 new players to the game.

I also enjoy being a course steward in my local area. Getting our courses ready for tournaments and general course upkeep has always been my way to give back to the sport that has given me so much.

Christoph "Rippe" Jahn

My first disc golf experience was in 2012 on our local disc golf course. Thenceforth, I was hooked and began to play as much courses as possible in Germany and later all over Europe. In 2016 I met my lovely wife Wiebke on a disc golf course and from that moment on we are inseparable on and off the course. Only one year later we got a reinforcement by our wonderful daughter. I would say I owe disc golf a lot and try my best to distribute as much good vibes for the sport as I can.

Wiebke "Wibi" Jahn

I won the German Championship in 2016 beside the German Major Tour and The German Tour. The participation and the achievement of the 8th place at the European Championship 2016 was a special thing for me and I really look forward to the next EC at Konopiste this year.

Together with my great husband we became parents of our wonderful daughter in 2017. Since I am a mother, it is still great to be able to compete on high level disc golf but the results are secondary for me at this time.

Alexander Lyon

Hi my name is Alex Lyon and I live in Sacramento California. Disc golf is my passion and the path that I want to follow in life. My dad always said “if you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life” and that’s always kept me focused on pursuing my dream of competing in professional disc golf as my career.

Jaimie Martinez

My name is Jaime Martinez (PDGA# 66559). I first played disc golf on a trip to Holland, Michigan in 2009 and I have been hooked ever since.  I have been competing in tournaments as an amateur since 2014.  What started out as a walk in the woods and trying out a different sport turned into what I am sure will be a lifelong hobby for myself and my family.

My favorite disc golf memory is taking my kids out to play a round in the snow/rain at the first course I designed on the first official day it was open for play. It was a dream 4+ years in the making and nothing beats being able to share that first round at the course with my children.

Kymen Modig

I started playing Disc Golf year 2000 (when I were 11 years old) but switched to Ultimate Frisbee during 2003 and got back to Disc Golf during 2013.

In Ultimate I'm a multiple National Champion in both U20, Mixed and Open division but in Disc Golf my best placement is 10th (2017,2020) so far, haha.

A future goal in Disc Golf is to become a Swedish Champion so hopefully through hard work and dedication my dream will come true!

Nate Perkins

My first tournament was the Collegiate National Championships. A thriving community of athletes. Fast forward from 2014 to 2020. I'm so proud to be able to say that Disc Golf is my full time job. It has taken me to 8 different countries and has connected me with a community that is absolutely second to none.

I want to to continue playing Disc Golf for as long as my body will let me. I want to compete at the highest level. I want to win. But more than just the competitive side, I want to share Disc Golf with the world.

I learned how to play disc golf at the famous Rockledge Disc Golf Course, under the mentorship and friendship of PDGA Hall of Famers. I ran my first PDGA-sanctioned tournament in 1984 and authored the PDGA’s first Course Directory in 1985. I now compete as an age-protected amateur PDGA #1752.
