Year Started Disc Golf
When/how did you discover disc golf and knew you absolutely loved it?
I tried disc golf in 2015 and enjoyed it immediately, bought some discs and intended to play it regularly. Didn't play again until 2020. During the first lockdown I found those discs in a garage clean up (tuis, taniwhas and an aviar), and me and 2 flat mates built an object course and spent every day of lockdown playing 1-3 rounds. By the end of lockdown I had a basic understanding of the different flights you could achieve and the obsession began!
What’s your favourite RPM Disc in your bag right now and why?
Highlight yellow Cosmic Ruru. Bought it straight out of lockdown and initially wasn't a big fan because it seemed to just fade hard left for me😅. With a bit more arm speed behind me it's now my workhorse for the majority of upshots, reliably goes where ever you point it!
Do you have any practice routines? If so, what are they?
For putting I'm just trying to hone in on one set routine at the moment with only one putt from each point, for field work my main focus at the moment is hitting the intended line over the intended target.
What are your goals for the current season?
With a newborn I plan to be a lot more flexible with the season this year and slowly build into more tournaments as we get used to travelling around with Cora!
Do you have a proudest disc golf moment?
Winning North Island Champs MA1 2020.
What is the most memorable disc golf battle you’ve experienced/witnessed?
Me and Logan have had a couple close ones. The problem with playing in tournaments is that you often miss out on the great battles being played out!
What is your go to tip for disc golf beginners?
Just start with putters and/or understable mids for the first few rounds atleast.
If you could play any course in the world and bring along any 3 disc golf friends, where and who would it be?
There's not one stand-out course I want to play but a road trip through America to play at some of the tour courses would be fantastic. I would take Mike Nick and Shane, 3 guys who started playing at a similar time alongside me with similar levels of intensity, would be good to take those skills born in Auckland and see how they fare against courses worldwide!
