Where did the name Voodoo Disc Golf come from?
It all started in January of 2009.
I started playing DG with my buddy Jack Daniels and after playing for a short while, I realized I had a true love for the game. I loved it so much that I sold my golf clubs to invest in a great bag and my first discs. I purchased my first starter bag from Revolution. Even though I thought the bag was amazing, in quality and materials, I felt something was missing. I used to put my keys, change and iphone in the side pocket and me being as particular as I am, I was concerned with all the loose articles damaging my Iphone in one pocket.
I wanted the bag to evolve into something greater, something that could organize and keep my valuables protected during a round. I started to search online for designers and I happened to run across one that had the same name as my dog, Wookie.
And that’s where the adventure began.
I flew to Bozeman Montana for 7 days and explained my vision of a great bag. Voodoo Disc Golf was born March 19th, 2009.
Many people ask me where the name comes from. It wasn’t just something I pulled out of thin air, I did a ton of research and I CHOSE Voodoo. The culture of Voodoo had always been mysterious to me.
The reason I chose the name was due to a term used in the Voodoo culture called “gris-gris” which means fetish or charm. Therefore, a “gris gris” bag is a charm bag. Charms for such things as love, health, prosperity and family. I immediately liked the fit of the name because we as disc golfers love our plastic. Each one of the discs in our bag is like a different charm, it does something different for our game.
After doing more investigating, I found these sayings that everyday people use and believe in.
Good Juju, Mojo and most definitely Karma...
And we believe in Good Karma!
