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?

I can quench my competitive thirst on the weekends, while enjoying the game Min-Fri, with friends.

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

The people, by far.

How do you approach a new course?

By playing the obvious shot & playing par golf...whatever happens, happens.

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

The fact that I hate losing, more than I enjoy winning.

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

I just don’t think and let myself zone out as often as I can, between shots. I only need to lock in, when I’m about to throw a disc.

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?

Playing a doubles tourney with my wife, as the only mixed team.

What are your top three favorite discs?

Prodigy D2, MX-3 and the PA3.

What are your top three courses you have played?

Tradewinds, Harmony Bends and Olpe Lake.

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

The Aussie Open course.

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

My buddy Scans, the guy does so much for disc golf & Prodigy.

Whats in the bag?

All Prodigy, D2, D3, FX2, F5, A2, A4, MX-3 & PA3.

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

Movie buff, sports watching & traditional golf.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?

Don’t ace the first practice throw...that led to my worst round ever.

What does #NoBadRounds mean to you?

It means that even if you’re playing bad, you can still enjoy the day.

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

It keeps me ready to go and my hands/discs dry.
