How long have you been playing disc golf?

5 years

How did you get your start in disc golf?

I was rehabbing from elbow surgery and a couple buddies asked me to play frisbee golf. They beat the pants off of me, which ignited my competitive fire. I learned how to play and then asked them to play again, except I won this time.

What do you love most about the sport?

Being outdoors and hiking through some beautiful parks.

What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played?

Like golf, disc golf is a great experience outdoors & I'm responsible for my performance as an individual. I enjoy meeting and talking with new people and developing friendships.

How do you approach a new course?

Par is my goal, how to I play each hole to get par. Birdies will always happen, but I refrain from being overly aggressive out of the gate.

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

I want to be the best at whatever I do, being a husband, father, golfer and even in my profession.

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

For me the key is not thinking about anything. I figure out my next shot as I’m walking up the fairway, which eliminates thinking right before I throw. When it’s time to throw the shot, that’s my focus, nothing else.

What’s your most memorable win?

My first professional win, a PDGA C-Tier in St. Louis.

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

A tourney ace, where 12 people got to witness the disc slam the basket.

What are your top three favorite discs?

Prodigy D1, the H1v2 and the A4.

What are your top three courses you have played?

Harmony Bends, Tradewinds and New Melle Lakes.

If you could play any course in the world, which would it be?

The Beast!!!!

Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her?

I enjoy watching Simon play and how he’ll take the most ridiculous lines. This encourages me to look beyond what might present itself as obvious.

Whats in the bag?

All Prodigy, as a Prodigy team member. X1 D1 X3 H1v2 H2v2 H4v2 F7 MX-3 A2 A4 PA-1 PA-2

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

I play traditional golf and love to watch movies, in the theaters.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?

I like to warm up by myself, no chatter.

What does #NoBadRounds mean to you?

It means enjoy playing the game, regardless of the score.

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

It’s always on my hip, for every shot.
