How long have you been playing disc golf? 6 years
How did you get your start in disc golf? After my fiancé left me 9 days before our wedding after nearly 8 years, a buddy thought I would enjoy and be good at the sport of DG. I feel in love with it instantly.
What do you love most about the sport? The community of people!
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? The community of people!
How do you approach a new course? If it’s for a tournament, I walk it backwards first and then attack it with 3 practice rounds.
What motivates you to continually improve your game? My competitive spirit. There’s nothing I love more in this world than competing with people you care about.
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? Stay positive! I never allow myself to be upset at a error or something that is out of my control (such as a spit out putt). I reflect instantly on what I can do to correct what error just happened and then I correct it on the next throw. Negative and frustrated thoughts only harm our ability to grow.
What’s your most memorable win? The TrainWreck at Trojan in 2020. It was a replacement tournament for the Oregon Championships at the end of the 2020 season. This was my last Am tournament and I went into a three way playoff with two of my really close friends. I won it on the first hole by getting a birdie.
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? This past August my dog became ill very quickly and I was going to have to put her down the next day (a Wednesday). I co-hosted a Tuesday Twos league at Orchard park and let everyone know that is was her last full day on this earth. So many people came out to see her. Going into the last day of the league- I was in second place to the gentleman I was co-hosting league with (Brody Cannon) and the only way I could pass him on the day was with an ace (the way points were setup and the amount of points Brody was ahead of me made it so I couldn’t beat him just by winning the day and him losing). On my 10th hole I ended up throwing in the ace. I instantly swooped up my dog, hugged her right and broke down crying. I couldn’t even hear all the cheers. That ace on her last day meant the world to me. I have that disc in my bag today and will never take it out (maybe one day I’ll frame it next to her picture though).
What are your top three favorite discs? DD3 from discmania, lucid x-felon from Dynamic Discs and the Maiden by Westside.
What are your top three courses you have played? A private course on island of Maui, HI. Whistler’s Bend in Roseburg, OR. Buxton Woods in Buxton, OR.
If you could play any course in the world, which would it be? Maple Hill or Helsinki
Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her? I don’t have a disc golf hero, but the person I respect tremendously right now is Scott Stokely. He’s very open about his past and his struggles. He’s back on tour this year and donanting all winnings this year to Charity. He’s not rich when it comes to finances, but he’s rich with a huge heart.
Whats in the bag? 6 DD3’s, Raider, 3 Getaways, Beast, 2 Firebirds, Felon, MD3, E-Mac Truth, Gator, Pig, 3 Maidens and 2 Fierces
What non-disc golf hobbies do you have? NFL football (fantasy and viewership), golf, hiking and traveling.
Any superstitions you have before or during a round? No, I don’t believe in superstitions. Preparation is the key to everything.
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? Always remember why you started playing this sport and continue to do so….because it’s fun! Any day playing disc golf is a good day!
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? It’s ability to truly get a disc dry! It is the only towel I have found that gets the disc fully dry. Doesn’t matter how wet the disc is, the towel will take care of it. If it’s an absurdly wet day, I will combo the towel with climbers chalk just in case those small raindrops hit the disc after I’ve dried it.
