Disc Golf Career

Started Disc Golf in 2007

How did you discover Disc Golf?

I discovered disc golf through a friend who had a course on his property. He then took me to the local course in the redwoods that was so beautiful and fun. I met some amazing people and began to play everyday after work. Some of those people are still my best friends.

What is your proudest Disc Golf moment?

Beating the whole field at Masters Worlds on day 3 to come from 14th place to 7th and make the cut.

What are your practice routines?

FIELD WORK!! And putting. You should be putting at least 30 minutes everyday.

What is your go-to tip for beginners?

You are not just throwing with your arm, you need to use your whole body.
