How long have you been playing disc golf?

Started playing with Discs and learning about the sport at 2

How did you get your start in disc golf?

I picked it up because my dad and older brother Cameron liked to play. I would always be out there with them and would want to do what they did.

What do you love most about the sport?

I love that I get to help grow the sport and travel and meet so many cool people.

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

What makes Disc Golf so cool is that you can play with your family and friends regardless of where they are in ability. Disc golf is a sport you can play with little to no money involved. There are so many opportunities to travel and check out so many cool courses near and far.

How do you approach a new course?

With excitement! I’ve had to play many courses blind in a tournament and I just try to think about what disc and shot is best for each hole . It’s all a fun learning experience!

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

I want to see this sport soar! So I want to keep getting better not just in playing but being someone whom others can be inspired by. That motivates me!

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

I’ll be honest food helps me a lot! Having snacks handy keeps me energized and able to focus. Also, I’m 9 and sometimes it can be hard to be 9 and also have to be professional all the time. So my mom and Dad help me a lot. My dad helps me keep motivated with my play and my mom keeps me grounded and keeps it light.

What’s your most memorable win?

2018 Junior Worlds. I had a rough start and was able to make the final four which was my goal. I then did the final 9 in such a good mood and with so many of my Disc golf friends watching. I ended up tying for first. We then had a playoff where after three holes I made a pretty awesome putt for the win.

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

Last years junior worlds most definitely. What was so memorable was that all my Disc golf buddies were there cheering me on. My Disc golf buddies being there is what made it memorable! I hope to do the same for them!

What are your top three favorite discs?

Dynamic Discs Air Trespass Latitude 64 Air Ballista Pro Westside Discs Air Sword

What are your top three courses you have played?

Peter Pan Park-Emporia, Kansas Wickham Park- Manchester, CT Brandywine Disc Golf Course, Wilmington, Delaware

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

I plan to one day play them all!

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

Hands down Hannah and Dustin Leatherman! Ever since the first time I met them at an Eagles Wings Disc Golf Tournament I have been motivated and inspired by them. They do so much for the sport, the youth, and for disc golf in general! They are great players and ambassadors of the sport and if I can become even a tiny bit like them I’ll be happy

What's in the bag?

Besides my tjeee current favorites I listed earlier. Gatekeeper, raider, anchor, bolt, dagger, eMac truth, Fugitive, harp and more

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

I play on a baseball team every year in the spring. I play on a basketball team in the winter. I also played football in the fall for a few years. Not sure if I’ll do that again this year but I love the conditioning training. I also like to look for treasures with my dad with the metal detector! We have found some pretty old and cool stuff!

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?

Nope. I just get nervous but a good nervous.

What does #NoBadRounds mean to you?

To me #NoBadRounds means that there is always something you can learn from any round. Good or bad you can take away as little or as much as you want. I learn something from every round I play about myself, my game, the course.

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

I think it’s so cool that you can get your Flightowel in almost any mold you want! How cool is that? Having your flight towel with the disc being in your favorite mold just adds to the awesomeness of this towel. And it’s so useful and easier to warm up!

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

I’m just happy to be playing and have the opportunities to play thanks to all those who support and believe in me!
