Disc Golf Career

Started Disc Golf in 2019

How did you discover Disc Golf?

In 2019 , I saw a course in a park near home and some people throwing what I thought at the time were just cheap Frisbees. I went away and grabbed a handful of cheap Frisbees from the local discount store and took my wife, Sarah and our kids out for a a play. Struggling to work out how to throw lead me to YouTube and the world of discs and before long I was watching hour upon hour of Jomez videos and from there have been loving the sport ever since.

What is your proudest Disc Golf moment?

Hearing all the positive feedback after TD'ing my first tournamnent, The Battle at 7th Brigade.

What are your practice routines?

I try to get 50-100 putt to our practice basket daily, plus field work at a local park once a week. I try and get out for a casual round at least once per week.

What is your go-to tip for beginners?

Don't worry about how far you are throwing. Focus on throwing lower speed under stable discs accurately before throwing anything faster than a 10 speed.

Comment: "Love throwing the Tara Iti, especially with my forehand. At the 2023 Australian Disc Golf Championships, it was the perfect disc for me to stick the tricky Hole 18 Island."
