What’s your most memorable win? My second tournament back from having cancer removed from inside of my spinal cord I won against a pretty majorly stacked field in open.

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? 2017 Am worlds I made the final 9 in advanced. The third hole was a skinny fairway with an elevated teepad, the entire right side is water, left side is thick trees. To get to the basket it is 490 ft. I threw the greatest throw of my disc golf career, turned my shot over to carry over the water but fought back to absolutely park the basket right next to the water. If you ever want to watch the shot the disc golf guy has it on YouTube!
