How long have you been playing disc golf?

13 Years

What do you love most about the sport?

I love the challenge that the sport brings. Every time you step onto the course or practice field there is always a different challenge than the last time you played.

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

I love the family aspect of disc golf. I've made a lot of friends over the years through disc golf. Some of these friends are like brothers and sisters to me. You really can't find that in any other sport.

How do you approach a new course?

I look at all possible lines that I could take and play the highest percentage shot. I'd rather be safe than sorry on a new course.

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

It's hard to stay completely focused throughout the entire tournament. I mainly focus when I'm about to throw or next to throw. If you focus on everything going on during the tournament you are just gonna wear yourself out mentally.

What’s your most memorable win?

The 2017 Fall of Ashe at Ashe County Park, my first MPO win.

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

I called an ace during a practice round at Idlewild DGC on hole #11 right before I aced it. Definitely my favorite ace.

What are your top three favorite discs?

1. Discraft Comet 2. Discraft Buzzz 3. Discraft Zone

What are your top three courses you have played?

1. Ashe County Park 2. Idlewild DGC 3. W.R Jackson

If you could play any course in the world, which would it be?

Jarva Disc Golf Park in Sweden.

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

My disc golf hero is Nate Doss. He was one of the first professional disc golfers I heard of when I started playing 13 years ago. I love how smooth and simple his form is. I've watched him throw so much that my backhand drive looks very similar to his. He's the main reason I threw all Discraft for 8 years. I want to play meet him and play with him one day.

Whats in the bag?

2 Ballista Pros, 1 Stiletto, 2 D3s, 4 Kongs, 1 Undertaker, 3 Getaways, 1 Maverick, 2 Felons, 1 Comet, 1 Buzzz, 1 Wasp, 1 Quake, 2 Zones, 1 Keystone, and 4 Marshals

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

Outside of disc golf I like to fix watches and watch movies.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?

I have to have some kind of caffeine in my system before I play a tournament round. Caffeine relaxes me and helps my focus.

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

The thing I love most about my FlighTowel is that it always me to stay loose during long backups on the course.
