How long have you been playing disc golf? I've been introduced 6 years ago but playing more seriously for 2 years.
How did you get your start in disc golf? A coworker introduced me and i loved it!
What do you love most about the sport? Being outdoor, the nature. I meet so many beautiful people because of the Sports! Being able to play alone but also share special moment on the course with family and friend is so special! It's good for the soul!
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? If one day somebody would have told me that I would practice a sport with my 10 years old daughter, my girlfriend and my 71 years old mother I would have not believe you! But that's what i'm living! Also ,even if disc golf is competitive, it really feels like a big family! There's no better feeling than hearing the sound of the chains!
How do you approach a new course? Just trying to have fun! Breath, focus and the most important! New course or not, i'm looking ahead of me and i just throw!
What motivates you to continually improve your game? I improved a lot last year and i know i still got plenty of room to improve. I'm doing the Disc Golf Strong Academy and Inner Circle programs. Trying to do the best i can to keep the motivation up! I won for the first time in 2021 so i want to win again! That's good motivation!
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? I love meditation but sometimes it's hard to bring that to the course if you know what i mean. But i'm getting better and better at it. Just trying to breath and visualize and every throw i'm telling my self that I will make it!
What’s your most memorable win? Here in Quebec province (Canada) we have Tournee Pro-Am Disc Golf that is organising most the PDGA sanctionned tournaments. In MA40, I won the finals (my very first win!) and I also won the Tournee Pro-Am Disc Golf season!! That was amazing to bring home 2 trophies the same day! What an emotive day it was!
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? My first Ace! I was alone but two guys that I didn't know was looking at my throw. Boom!! Ace!!! One of the guy ran and jumped in my arms while i was crying! HAHAHA! Epic moment! Also my second Ace in front of my girlfriend! So cool!!
What are your top three favorite discs? 1- M4 2- F7 3- D2
What are your top three courses you have played? Nominingue, Qc St-Jean_Baptiste de Rouville, Qc Golf Monty , Drummundville But that list will probably change next season cause I want to try Brewster Ridge, Maple Hill and Ettyville! :)
If you could play any course in the world, which would it be? Järva discgolfpark in Sweden! I've playing that course in the Birdie Disc Golf board game but i want to play it for real!!! I'm a metalhead and many of my favorite bands are from Sweden so I can't wait to go to music festival there and also play a couple of courses there!
Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her? Don't really have heroes but I like Kevin Jones, Heather Young, Paige Pierce, Eagle is cool! I love Simon Lizotte. Love his videos! His uncle Peter live in Sherbrooke Quebec (it's a small world!) and he grew the sport a lot in our province!
Whats in the bag? Too many discs! LOLL Putter: PA-3 & PX-3 Approach: A2-A3 Mid: M2-M3-M4 Fairway: F1-2-5-7-FX2 Driver: D2-4-6
What non-disc golf hobbies do you have? MUSIC! I played drum in the past. Play a little guitar and i've been singing since i'm 5 years old! I'm a 100% metalhead! I collect vinyl records! I also love every kind of arts. Love to go see concerts, movies, theater,etc. I'm also a runner!
Any superstitions you have before or during a round? Not really. I'm just trying to meditate, breath and do my Disc Golf Strong warm up and I always finish with a couple of swings with my FlighTowel!
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? We always learn from every rounds. On the spot it can sometimes be very very though but looking back after, you always learn from it. Not only disc golf related but especially on the human side of things. It makes us grow!
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? It's part of my warm-up (just after my disc golf strong warm-up) so i'm pretty sure it prevents me from hurting myself! Smooth at the beginning and after that i give a couple of full swings and i'm ready to go!!
Is there anything else you would like to add to your Team FlighTowel profile? Beside FlighTowel, i'm also a Prodigy Canada Ambassador and a Flight Factory Team members. Also in the Montreal Disc Golf Association board. Doing the social medias for them! I'm also doing disc golf clinics. I had like 500 people (with 400 kids) in clinics last year! Just trying to grow the sport the best i can! It will always be my number one goal!
