Year Started Disc Golf
When/how did you discover disc golf and knew you absolutely loved it?

What’s your favourite RPM Disc in your bag right now and why?
It’s really hard to narrow this down. The Kahu is a great reliable distance driver, the Kotoku a great over-stable driver, the Pekapeka a marvelous fairway driver (especially if you can find one of the more stable flavours), but I guess my heart rests wit

Get my rating back to where I think it should be (960+) by strengthening the consistency of my performance.
Do you have a proudest disc golf moment?
Captaining the Mundy Park Jim Brown Cup team to five consequtive provincial championships.
What is the most memorable disc golf battle you’ve experienced/witnessed?

What is your go to tip for disc golf beginners?

If you could play any course in the world and bring along any 3 disc golf friends, where and who would it be?
Hit the Åland Islands with Ted Moens, Neville Collett, and Craig Sheather.
Thanks for visiting! May the winds of fate blow warm and gentle ‘neath your discs, and lead them swiftly to fair ways and catching chains.
