Year Started Disc Golf
When/how did you discover disc golf and knew you absolutely loved it?
When quarantine hit in 2020 I was playing pickup basketball 3 times a week in college. When that was no longer an option I started going on hikes and walks to go outside, and decided to try out disc golf at some of the parks I was hiking at. The more I threw discs the more I loved it, and as I improved I got more and more hooked.
What’s your favourite RPM Disc in your bag right now and why?
So far the Kiwi. It's a super fun utility disc.
Do you have any practice routines? If so, what are they?
I like to go to a park with a stack of discs. Then I work on whatever my goal for the day is while I listen to an audiobook. The mixed focus allows myself to focus on my shots as well as just get reps in. Lately I've been working on backhand approaches, rollers, and power drives. But my current practice focus changes frequently.
What are your goals for the current season?
Unsanctioned MPO win. Sanctioned MPO win. Get over 980 rated. Be prepared and play well at Amateur Worlds.
Do you have a proudest disc golf moment?
I won all three tournaments I played in July of last year. All three tournaments were competitive and very difficult, so pulling of the win of all three local tournaments that month felt really good.
What is the most memorable disc golf battle you’ve experienced/witnessed?
The most memorable battle I have experienced was against fellow Team RPM golfer Stephen Williams. In the final round everyone in the top 5 had a lead at some point during that round. Then with 4 holes to play Stephen took at 2 stroke lead. I started off my comeback with a long circle 2 putt with 3 left to go. Then tied Stephen on the second to last hole. I sealed the comeback with a 20 foot birdie putt for the win. The greatest battle I've ever witnessed was Drew Gibson vs Gannon Buhr in the 2022 Las Vegas Challenge. They went back and for the entire last round. Then in overtime it was one really good shot after another. The entire crowd as electric, and it was amazing to be a part of.
What is your go to tip for disc golf beginners?
Have fun! Enjoy the good, learn from the bad, but ultimately don't let any bad shot or bad result ruin the moment, the round, or the day!
If you could play any course in the world and bring along any 3 disc golf friends, where and who would it be?
I would love to play Maple Hill. I would bring my friends Tom, Will, and Ross.
