How long have you been playing disc golf? 2 Years
How did you get your start in disc golf? While visiting my parents back in San Diego, I had some friends introduce me to the sport at Morley Field. After a full round I was hooked. Signed up for a B-tier a few weeks away and never looked back!
What do you love most about the sport? I've grown to love several aspects along my Disc Golf Journey. First was the learning curve compared to ball golf. I found myself getting those satisfying birdies and pars more often than I could in ball golf. This built a desire to get better each and every round. I love competition and disc golf offers that weekly, almost daily. I love the courses and backdrops I've stared down while playing holes around the country. I love the camaraderie its built between my friends who have also adopted the sport. It's become my number one passion.
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? The access and the beauty!! It doesn't take much to get a disc and go play, or find a field and go throw. Typically no matter where you're throwing, you're probably staring down some beautiful landscapes!
How do you approach a new course? Like a kid going to Disneyland for the first time. There's a giddy in my step. Every hole gets me more and more excited by the unknown that I never want the rounds to end.
What motivates you to continually improve your game? I think of my personal achievements and results in disc golf like the tests I used to take in school. If I study really hard, I see those results in my test scores. If I try to learn everything in the last minute, that's reflected in my test scores. In the school of disc golf, I try to have the best test results I can knowing I put the work in to achieve those results!
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? Remember that disc golf is beautiful despite what scores are showing up on my scorecard. I also try to remember that my tournament play is dependent solely on myself. I throw the shots that put me in the positions I find myself in, no one else. I just try to stay within myself and my own game.
What’s your most memorable win? The only sanctioned win I have came in 2019 at a tournament I traveled a few hours to get to. I was behind by a stroke or two all tournament to the leader but somehow managed to make up the two strokes on the final two holes. This was a trophy only event and they only had one trophy for our division so we had to playoff for the win. It took 4 holes but I managed to squeak it out on the island hole. The TD entered the other guy in the official results as the winner and so it just provided more motivation to get #2!
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? The first event my wife ever photographed. The buzz it created by everyone having these professional photos done was amazing, I was bragging all weekend that my wife was the photographer! It also got her much more into Disc Golf to where she plays rounds with me now. No better feeling than getting to share the sport you love with the ones you love.
What are your top three favorite discs? Crystal Z Buzzz Star Leopard3 Champion Roadrunner
What are your top three courses you have played? Morley Field (San Diego, CA) The Fort (Ogden, UT) Picnic Island (Tampa Bay, FL)
If you could play any course in the world, which would it be? Maple Hill in the Fall.
Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her? I haven't been around the sport very long but so far I would have to say I look up to Nate Sexton the most. He represents himself and the companies he works with so professionally on and off the course. He's helped push the sport beyond its threshold and a serves as a true ambassador for growing the sport.
Whats in the bag? I typically carry a Latitude 64 Easy Go bag so I'm confined to 12 discs. On an avg. day you can catch me bagging: 2 Lunas, Jawbreaker Zone, Crystal Z buzzz, ESP Buzzz, ESP Meteor, 2 Leopard3's, 2 Champion Roadrunner's, ESP Anax, and an ESP Force
What non-disc golf hobbies do you have? I'm a fabricator at a Graphic Design firm where I build Identity packages and install art pieces around Boise, Idaho. I like to do my own little creative design work in my free time. I'm also a pretty good bowler!
Any superstitions you have before or during a round? Don't be the person people don't want to be around.
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? Don't be upset with that bad shot, be happy you had the chance to be out throwing a disc. Don't worry about what the scorecard says, every throw is a learning opportunity to grow as a Golfer. Disc golf is so fun and amazing. If you're getting upset with how it's going, you're doing it wrong.
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? Too many to name! First, the innovative technology this brought to the game. You see countless individuals whipping their towel to simulate a pull through. FlighTowel created the perfect tool to aid in those practice pulls. So perfect, I use it to get my "Throws" in when I'm not playing. It helps me continue to build that muscle memory while allowing me access to practice the motions at my disposal. It is the perfect tool for any disc golfer! It's also a towel which every disc golfer carries already. Perfect tool!
