|How long have you been playing disc golf?
|How did you get your start in disc golf?
|I remember I was introduced to the game of disc golf from a friend of mine back when I was in my early teens. I only played briefly, but I still remember buying my first disc, an Innova Cobra. What brought me back to the game was 12 years ago when I was geocaching with some friends and stumbled to a local disc golf course. Picked up some discs at the local disc golf store and I was hooked ever since.
|What do you love most about the sport?
|I’m a competitive guy. I’ve played games (Chess and Magic the Gathering) professionally, but something about this game of disc golf that makes me strive to be a better player and person. Disc golf pushes me to continue to improve on all facets of my game. To be the best player that I can be. This allows me to share my passion with others. I love bringing my family and friends and introduce them to the sport.
|What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played?
|All other sports I’ve played, I was always playing against an opponent. In disc golf, you are playing against yourself. Only you can be your worst enemy or continue to push through self-challenges and rise to the occasion. I strive to always do better each time I’m out on the field or on the course.
|How do you approach a new course?
|I play the new course with no expectations and make sure that I’m having fun. If it’s a course that I plan to play in an event, I try to take notes and make an assessment by different disc selections and different lines of play.
|What motivates you to continually improve your game?
|The desire to be the best player that I can be. I constantly challenge myself to do better by working different areas of my game from putting, upshots or driving. Most importantly, I continue to work on my focus, discipline, and mental game.
|What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?
|I try to have a short-term memory and focus on each shot that I make while not reflecting on my previous play.
|What’s your most memorable win?
