How long have you been playing disc golf?

5 years

How did you get your start in disc golf?

A friend and I were playing ultimate frisbee at a local park and when our game had finished, we were walking around and discovered the course sign. We ended up playing a whole round with an ultimate frisbee and both became addicted.

What do you love most about the sport?

There is no age-limit. Everyone can play and the community is so open to help newer players out.

How do you approach a new course?

Just have fun and play relaxed. You can't beat yourself up if you throw a bad shot when you're learning a new layout.

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

Trying/learning new things keeps the game fresh for me.

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

Focus on my own game, not what others are doing around me.

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

I helped run a clinic at a local middle school in 2018. Watching all of the young kids ask me to help them with their form or critique their putting was very eye-opening. It reminded me how much of an impact you can have on a group of individuals.

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?


What does #NoBadRounds mean to you?

It could always be worse, so make the best out of it.

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

It helps me warm up before every round and keeps my discs dry during the round. Stretching is crucial to my game and this is the most efficient way for me to do it.
