Year Started Disc Golf
When/how did you discover disc golf and knew you absolutely loved it?
My cousin Jay Clark introduced me in 2018 and as a former ultimate player, I was intrigued but hesitant to figure out the discs. Then a couple local buddies invited me to play early morning rounds a couple days a week in 2019 and that’s when I really fell in love with it. Nothing better than hanging out with my dogs and a few buddies early in the morning, sipping coffee and trying to bag birdies.
What’s your favourite RPM Disc in your bag right now and why?
My favorite RPM disc is the Magma Tui! The Tui is my putting putter and I love it for the easy clean release and glidey flight. It allows me to putt with a slow and smooth pace because it gets to the basket so easily.
Do you have any practice routines? If so, what are they?
I do a lot of field work and form work. I film my throws and compare my form with the touring pros, and make adjustments accordingly. I putt in the backyard but not nearly as much as I should! Trying for more putting practice in 2023.
What are your goals for the current season?
My goals for 2023 are to finish in the money at a pro event – hopefully early in the season – at which point I will join the pro ranks for good; Get my rating to at least 965; And play well enough to make the Crown team in 2024.
Do you have a proudest disc golf moment?
Winning the Cape Cod Fall Classic in MA1 is my proudest disc golf moment, because I had to play solid golf at both of my two home courses, and because I had to make some clutch shots to close it out, including my first ever playoff.
What is the most memorable disc golf battle you’ve experienced/witnessed?
I am among the thousands who will answer this question with Conrad vs. McBeth at Worlds. Most inspiring sports moment I ever witnessed.
What is your go to tip for disc golf beginners?
Don’t worry about beating anyone’s score except yours from last time.
If you could play any course in the world and bring along any 3 disc golf friends, where and who would it be?
North Cove in North Carolina with my two dogs, Freckles and Mr. Schue, and my cousin Jay.
