How long have you been playing disc golf?

23 years

How did you get your start in disc golf?

I injured myself pretty badly playing Professional Indoor Soccer so I needed a different outlet for exercise. My older brother, Bruce, introduced me to disc golf and the rest is history.

What do you love most about the sport?

Watching the full Flight of the disc.

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

Disc golf is an individual sport unlike all the other sports I've played being in a team. I like to conquer the course and to be able to stick to my game plan on the course.

How do you approach a new course?

I take notes on every course I'm going to play in an event. I'll throw multiple shots on every hole trying to figure out how I want to attack the holes.

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

Well, disc golf is my livelihood. I have to continue to practice so I can compete against some very talented competitors.

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

I think of one thing at a time... sometimes I'm focused on the angle of release or making sure I follow through on my shots.

What’s your most memorable win?

Becoming a World Champion

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

Meeting my wife

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

I have so many but if I had to pick only one I would say Ken Climo. I've had the pleasure of competing against Kenny my entire career. He made me want to get better at disc golf.

Whats in the bag?

Giants Ballista Pro Ahti Enforcer Saint Pro Warship Bard Fuse Shield Swan Gauntlet

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

I wouldn't say it's a hobby but spending time with my family is what I do when I'm not on a course.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?


What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

I enjoy warming up with my FlighTowel. The feel of the grip and the resistance with the towel makes for a great way to warm up.

Is there anything else you would like to add to your Team FlighTowel profile?

My goal is to compete in the MPO division until I'm 50 years old and hopefully longer than that.
