Major League Ultimate announces sponsorship of PDGA player Holly Finley
PHILADELPHIA— Major League Ultimate announced today the sponsorship of pro-disc golfer Holly Finley during the 2014 Professional Disc Golf Association season. With the arrangement, MLU hopes to further strengthen its commitment to disc sports and the disc sport community.
I'm excited for the opportunity to represent Major League Ultimate during the PDGA Tour series. The MLU shares my commitment to bringing awareness to the world of flying discs sports, whether it’s disc golf or Ultimate. It was a perfect mashup. Perhaps I can even convince a few Ultimate players to join me for a friendly tournament or two along the way.- Holly Finley
“When she was having difficulty getting the word out in South Africa, she set up baskets in a city park and started putting. Eventually, local disc organizations stepped up to help her host two youth clinics. Now she’s a Celebrity Ambassador for Innova. That’s the kind of dedication we admire at the MLU,” said Executive Vice President Nic Darling.
Finley can be followed on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, as well as on her website DuchessOfDiscGolf.com.
