Hi, my name is Derek Mower.  Ive been playing disc golf for about 12 years now.  A friend of mine introduced me to the game and gave me a 150 class Polaris LS to get started with.  I’ve gone through a lot of discs since that time, but I love the consistency that Millennium brings to the game.  When you replace a lost disc, you’re not worried about how the new one is going to fly.  Although I’ve moved up in the weight ranges, the Polaris LS is still my go to disc.  One of my favorite things about disc golf is how easy and inexpensive it is to get into for new players.  I’ve been able to introduce a lot of new players to the game, and spend most of my weekends playing with my brother-in-laws who both have a natural talent when it comes to the game.  And of course the best thing about disc golf, is that I’m able to take the kids with me and they have as much fun as I do!

“The Legend of Zack Kitchen.”

During the Am weekend of Throw Down the Mountain II (2014) in Brooksville, FL, 16-year-old Zack Kitchen became a local legend with a cliff-to-cliff eagle on hole 18 of the “Gran Canyon.” Hole 18 is one of the most memorable disc golf holes in all of Florida. This 580’ par 4 tees off from a canyon ridge, stretches down a long valley fairway and finishes atop a 40’ wall on the other side of the canyon. With out-of-bounds marked on either side of the fairway, and up the 40’ wall that defends the final target, most pros and am players focus their drives on fairway placement – positioning themselves for a long, tricky approach up to the pin. However, during Friday Doubles play, Zack Kitchen decided to go for it all. He crushed his drive from the red tees with a long swooping left to right hyzer flip shot which finished with a graceful fade right towards the basket. His drive successfully carried 570’ in the air from cliff-to-cliff, leaving him and his partner a 10’ drop-in putt for eagle. This feat puts Zack in elite company. Before him, the only known golfers to duplicate this feat were Professional disc golfers Garrett Gurthie and Ricky Wysocki in 2012. At just 16 years of age, Zack Kitchen is now the youngest disc golfer to have accomplished this epic shot, and thus has etched his name into the local lore for years to come.

Millennium Golf Discs has sponsored Zack, his father Lonnie, and his brother Jake since 2013. This traveling, disc golfing family reminds us of our own roots - traveling the country as a family and playing disc golf anywhere and everywhere we went. They are a class act group of guys who respect the game, their competition, and have values and etiquette of the highest level. They embody everything about the spirit of disc golf, and we couldn’t be happier to have them on our team and as our friends.

Hi! My name is Richard Why, and I am from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I started playing disc golf in 2008 when a friend introduced me to the sport, I was hooked from there. The first disc I ever found while playing was a Millenium QJLS, which gave me a great start in the world of disc golf.

I moved from Advanced Men to Open Men at the beginning of 2012 and have since had multiple Top 5 finishes, along with a win at the 2012 Monkey Trap Open in Springdale, AR. What drew me to Millenium was the consistency of the plastic and the molds. I know what my discs are going to do with every throw, and that is a vital part of my game. I became a member of Team Millenium in 2013, and I'm looking forward to several great years to come.

My name is Bruce Pilkington and I've been playing since August 2008.
I decided to start throwing all millennium after I got 2 jls discs from a doubles tourney in 2011 and fell in love with them! So I went down to Play It Again Sports and traded every disc I had for Millennium Golf Discs and haven't looked back!
Millennium has great products and the discs are very predictable and no matter how beat in they get they will still fly the same!
One of my favorite disc is the jls in standard plastic and Quantum plastic.  The Jls is a great utility disc and I can throw them on a hyzer, strait, or anny and know that it will hold the line I need. I use them on holes 300ft or shorter and also for upshots in some cases!
The other disc I really enjoy is the Orion LS. I carry 3 in Sirius plastic and 1 in Quantum plastic.  These discs are what I throw the most.  I have one that turns over nicely for anhyzer shots, one that I use for a flick, and one to throw for max distance. The Quantum Orion LS is new in my bag so I've just been toying around with it for now!
My current set up
-Orange Millennium/HyzerBomb FLAK backpack bag
-Millennium/HB Panzer-Tank for putting
-Omega AP putting
-2 JLS 1.4 and 1.7
-3 Sirius Orion LS
-1 Sirius Sirius LF
-1 QMS
-1 Mortar
-1 Tank (very nice strait putter/driver)
-1 Zero G Scorpius
-1 Q Quasar
You've gotta try out the new discs: the Panzer-Tank and the Mortar.  These discs have lots of grip and fly awesome!!
The Panzer-Tank and Tank are very good putters and great for upshots and good headwind shots! I use the Tank sometimes for a drive on holes around 250 and shorter and it will fly strait as an arrow!
The Mortar is a very good mid range that will fight a strong headwind.  When thrown with 100% power, it will fly strait and finish hard left, but if you don't throw it 100% it goes big Hyzer!
