Infinite Discs is proud and excited to announce our partnership with with touring pro Drew Gibson. Drew will be representing Infinite Discs for the 2020 season. Both Infinite and Drew are happy with the partnership. Drew will be throwing a mixed bag, including Infinite brand molds. He is looking forward to representing Infinite Discs.

“I think the (Infinite) brand is headed in the right direction, “ said Drew, “and I wanted to be a part of something that is growing.”

Get To Know Drew Gibson

 

Drew played in his first pro event late in 2012, and has been part of the touring scene ever since. He is well known for his ability to crush a drive over 600 feet, and do so with accuracy. He attributes his power to his fitness and form.

“I’d say my core strength and hips create most of the power. It’s just about being smooth,”said Drew, “and having a form that is duplicatable”.

That power and accuracy helped Drew cash at nearly every event he played this year. He feels that part of what gave him success this year was his progress on his mental game.

“I feel I’m on the final leg of becoming a well-rounded player, “ said Drew, “ not only physically, but mentally as well.”

Drew Gibson grew up in Sacramento, California playing baseball and racing dirt bikes. An injury in a preseason baseball game prevented him from throwing well and spelled the end of his baseball aspirations. So, he picked up disc golf to fill the competitive void. When he started playing disc golf he was surrounded by many of the big names in disc golf. He received encouragement from them and other locals, which pushed him to get better.

“There were a lot of players who had an influence on me over the years, “ said Drew. “Just to name a few would be Josh Anthon, Derek Billings, and Jim Oates.”

The Future

 

Drew said he was excited to represent Infinite for 2020. Not only for the freedom of disc selection, but with the opportunity to work with various manufacturers on special projects.

“I think the (Infinite) brand is headed in the right direction and I just wanted to be a part of something that is growing and see if we can’t work as a team to show the community what Infinite has to offer,” said Drew. “I think the goals for this year are large, and I think we can obtain them.”

When it comes to the near future, Drew has some simple, yet ambitious goals for the upcoming season.

“I just want to put myself in a position to win as many times as possible. I feel the more chances I have to close out an event the easier they’ll come”, he said. “I’d love to just have a strong season in 2020 and prove I can be consistent and battle for the big wins week in and week out.”

In addition to being optimistic about his future, he believes the sport will continue the growth it has been experiencing lately. He points toward Paul Mcbeth’s contract last year as evidence of a bright future for the sport.

“I think in 5 years the sport will grow tremendously. The stuff Mcbeth has done with promotion and such is just a peek into the potential I believe the sport has to offer.”

As for his longer-term outlook, Drew said, “ I’d just love to be in the mix in 5 years with Infinite on my back playing at the highest level still. I don’t think the sport or myself have cracked the potential of where it will be in 5 years.”

Pro Tip

 

Asked for any advice Drew could give up-and-coming disc golfers, Drew said, “Smooth is far. The harder you try the more difficult it’ll be! Be smooth and find your groove. Don’t try to copy someone else’s throw, just work on your form and if you put in the time it’ll come.”

Drew has shown he has the talent, ambition, and knowledge to succeed in the challenging world of professional disc golf. All of us at Infinite Discs would like to welcome him to the family, and wish him all the best as he builds on last year’s successes heading into the 2020 season, and beyond!

Meet the Shipping Heroes at Infinite Discs

For a lot of people, internet shopping can feel a little bit inhuman. You select photos of discs that look like what you want, checkout without saying a word to anybody, and the discs almost magically appear at your doorstep a few days later. But there is some very hard-working humans that make all of that come together smoothly.  We have a dedicated crew that carefully takes photos of all the discs and uploads each one to our website by hand, and then they code and stock those discs so that we can retrieved them with as little error as possible. There are also very dedicated guys who find the discs for each order and package and ship those orders to you.

We’d like to introduce you to a couple of those guys. The majority of discs shipped from Infinite Discs are handled by these two men…

TROY LAMONT

Meet Troy LaMont, a guy who is one of the most dedicated order “pullers” that we have. He can put several miles a day on his feet, walking around our warehouse, gathering the discs for each order so that they are ready to ship.

Troy has been working at Infinite Discs for a couple of years now and is a vital part of what we do. Aside from pulling orders, he also helps with adding inventory, keeping track of our apparel selection, and organizing our storefront for the local shoppers.

ADRIAN TOLEDO

Meet Adrian Toledo, another hard-working man who shows up first to work every day. He manages the warehouse and keeps all of the supplies stocked so that can keep the orders flowing with all of the appropriate packaging, labels, and more. He then sits down for several hours per day to package each order so that they’re ready for the mail pickup in the afternoon.

Adrian takes great care to make sure that each order has the discs that the shopper selected. While mistakes are few, considering how many thousands of discs we churn through each week, Adrian does a great job of catching most errors before they leave our building– if there is a weight or stamp color that is a little off, he’ll usually notice.

Of course, everybody at Infinite Discs jumps in to help in many ways during the entire process. All of use find ourselves pulling orders and shipping from time to time. When it gets really busy, it isn’t uncommon to find all of our guys running around the warehouse in an attempt to get the orders shipped before the day is over.

Thanks for your support of Infinite Discs! It helps to make our jobs a lot of fun every day. From time to time, we’ll keep introducing you to members of our team– the real heroes behind the scenes who make sure you get the discs you want for your game.
