Disc Golf Career

Started Disc Golf in 2020

How did you discover Disc Golf?

Originally my mom found discs from a yard sale already back around 2013. From there to 2020 I played couple rounds a year but then covid hit. Then I discovered solo rounds and weeklies and the combination of freedom, nature, constant development, and fuel for my competitiveness got me completely hooked on the game

What is your proudest Disc Golf moment?

I'd like to say my first and only pdga win but tbh most memorable proud moment was this one perfect shot at Nokia Amateur Open... Had a 100m low ceiling shot that needs a strong finish. Threw just the perfect shot with my old Kotare and got applause from two waiting groups and the td of the event. Luckily they didn't see mee miss the 5m putt after that...

What are your practice routines?

Not necessarily a routine but I try to get to the course when its empty and try to throw each possible line on each hole and play from the worst lie or the lie that gives me the shot I need most practice on.

What is your go-to tip for beginners?

Let the drivers wait and start with putters and mids! And always make sure you keep disc golf fun and not stress about anything!

Favourite Disc

Plastic Type: Glow
Comment: "It was a hard decission between Kotuku and Tara Iti but I'll go with Tara Iti this time. Great versatile control driver! Depending on the plastic and how beat up it is it can cover everything from nicely overstable to laser straight. Higly recommend!"
