How long have you been playing disc golf?

I have been playing since the mid 90s. I had taken a 10 year layoff, but started playing again 2 years ago and haven't looked back

How did you get your start in disc golf?

My roommate played every weekend and I finally just asked what it was all about. Couple weeks later he asked if I wanted to go throw a few for practice. I did, and was playing regularly within the month.

What do you love most about the sport?

The people. In all aspects of the sport. The players, media, small businesses associated with the sport, and in some cases entire towns who embrace the sport. GBO for one. When random people walking down the street ask you how your rounds were that day....its amazing.

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

I dont like being repetitive.....but again it's the people. It's the only sport I've ever played that at the end of the day, I felt I knew my competitors better than when I started. Also...some of my deepest conversations have happened on the course. There are so many events that contribute to amazing causes. If you're looking for a friend....just hit the local course.

How do you approach a new course?

I honestly play pretty well flying blind. But if I get a chance to walk the course looking at lines and where OBs are, I feel more comfortable

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

Testing my abilities. You see what other people are capable of, and you think you can do better. I learn something new everyday I play.

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

I try not to worry about the score. I did say "try". Its a new concept for me and I think it is helping.

What’s your most memorable win?

My very first tournament. Played rec and hit an ace on last hole. First win and acepot in same round. 😁

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

Last year GBO. First time to ever go. Tied for hot round first round, played lead card final two rounds. Due to injury I finished 39th, but am so happy I experienced it. GBO....I'm coming back. #marksman2020

What are your top three favorite discs?

RAIDER!!!!!!!!! Defender Justice I like overstable...but carry beat in versions of each as well

What are your top three courses you have played?

Clover Cliff Ranch.  Emporia Bois d'arc Ponca City Ok. Olpe Lake.  Emporia

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

All of them. At least 1 on every Continent

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

I used to watch Mitch Mac play back in the day. The things he could do with a disc amaze me to this very day. He would take the time to talk to anyone who asked him questions. He influenced a lot of people besides me.

Whats in the bag?

Bio fuzion Raider Lucid Raider Bio-metal flake Defender Air Defender Sheriff Air Sheriff Fuzion Felon Beat in Destroyer Explorer Getaway Corvette Eagle Gatekeeper Justice Shield 3 caltrops

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

I love to play pool, I collect just about anything. I know its DG related, but dyeing discs is my passion.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?

Nope. Just play my game and have fun doing it.

What does #NoBadRounds mean to you?

I learn something every time I play. If you learn just 1 thing.... 1 improvement, 1 new line, the way a new disc flies....it wasn't a bad round.

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

The ability to warm up my arm without wearing out my legs chasing discs. Repetitions inside when it is raining. Plus how good they look on my cart. Highly recommended.
