Disc Golf Career

Started Disc Golf in 1999

How did you discover Disc Golf?

My dad brought me to various parks when I was growing up. Playing object golf around the park was a great way to be introduced to the game without any pressure. It may not be a unique answer but I love the flight of the disc. Seeing different flight paths of similar pieces of plastic be so different is artistic to me.

What is your proudest Disc Golf moment?

My first, and only to date, ace. I was playing in a doubles tournament with my best friend and my dad was acting as my caddy for the round. On a blind 202 foot or 61 meter uphill hyzer and all we could do was listen for chains when we heard them blow up! Very special to me because my dad introduced me to the game and my best friend whom I was partnered with were able to share that moment with me.

What are your practice routines?

I use a pro-pull almost daily to keep my form as consistent as I can. I set up my practice basket in a spot that has a bit of a wind tunnel and try to take putts from all sides of the basket.

What is your go-to tip for beginners?

Throw mid range and putters as opposed to distance drivers. Need the form of the throw before the distance drivers will operate the way you think.

Favourite Disc

Plastic Type: Glow
Comment: "The Glow plastic Piwakawaka provides a great understable flight with just enough fade to flatten out and fly straight. With the right touch this is an absolute workhorse in my bag."
