Disc Golf Career

Started Disc Golf in 2020

How did you discover Disc Golf?

I discovered disc golf through friends. It was a cheap way to socialize with friends while also being competitive. Disc golf is a game of continuous improvement, and I love that.

What is your proudest Disc Golf moment?

Proudest moment in the sport was aceing with a friend that happened to be his first round. Seeing his reaction, and subsequently seeing him become fascinated with the sport with a single shot, was without a doubt my proudest moment.

What are your practice routines?

Field training will outperform playing 10 to 1. I have many discs I take to the field and work on slower speed straight shots. When I feel like I am consistent, I move up to faster discs with the same idea.

What is your go-to tip for beginners?

Ask someone better than you for help. Most people I have come across that are decent at the game have a feeling of pride when it comes to helping people grow in the sport, at least I do.

Favourite Disc

Plastic Type: Platinum
Comment: "The Pekapeka is an extremely versatile disc. The understability takes some time to master, but once you get to know it, it’s a tool you can’t play without."
