- Favorite DGA Disc: Hurricane
The Hurricane is a great max distance driver for both backhand and forehand throws. With the Hurricane being available in Sparkle and ProLine plastics I am able to use multiple Hurricanes to cover overstable and understable distance shots.

Most memorable tournament win or moment in DG?
My most memorable tournament moment would have to be my first MA1 win. It was the first Frog Pond Fling tournament in Lawrenceville, Georgia. I had a bad first round that also included a scoring error. I was really down on myself. Before the second round started I channeled my focus and ended up playing the best golf of my career. I believe I was at the bottom of the 3rd or 4th card, yet I fought all the way to win by a two-stroke margin. I shot the hottest round of the day in any division, got an ace on a cash CTP hole, and got my highest rated round at 1050.
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
My greatest strength is being able to throw backhand and forehand equally well.
what is your best physical tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Keep everything smooth and follow through on every shot. Especially putts!
what is your best mental tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Try to focus on every shot, not the whole round. By doing so you will not wear yourself out mentally before the round is over. Also confidence in each shot plays a big part in getting low scores.
how do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
I try to physically prepare by doing a day of fieldwork one day of the week before a tournament. I also like to practice putting the day before. I prepare mentally by just having a clear head and by bringing confidence to the tournament.
