Most Memorable Tournament win or moment in DG?
My best would have to be during the 2011 Kiss the Sky tournament. It is the highest disc golf course in the world and I never played it before the event. The first round was Saturday, I shot “decent” in my mind but after going in and asking what people shot, I found out I was leading the whole tournament, even the pros. It was a 1016 rated round that put me on top card over 2 thousand rated players. After the last round I was still up by 6 strokes that led me to my victory! It ended up being my last Advanced tournament and where I announced going Pro.
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
Driving and Distance
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing? “Drive for show, putt for dough.” Work on your putts and become the best putter possible. Putting is the hardest and most important part of the game. Play as much as you possibly can, get out with new people. Travel and play as many events as you can. Just go out and have fun. “Put the toy in the bucket.”
What is your best mental tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Just go out and have fun. “Put the toy in the bucket.”
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
I make sure to get plenty of sleep the night before I preform. I also eat a lot of healthy food before my rounds to stay energized. I don’t like warming up around a bunch of people so I take myself to a quiet spot and do my thing before each round. I generally do some push ups and stretches before as well.
