- Favorite DGA Disc: SP Breaker
After switching to DGA discs only a few months ago, I have immediately fallen in love with the SP Breaker!!! This is one of the most versatile discs I have ever laid my hands on. I keep a couple of them in my bag at all times and throw them for a wide variety of shots. It’s nice and stable at high speeds, yet still has amazing glide and a straight flight at lower speeds. I use this disc as my go to upshot disc both forehand and backhand, as a driving putter on shorter holes, and I go straight to the Breaker for those nasty head wind putts!

What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
Escape shots/tricky upshots…. I found that I have become quite good at “getting out of trouble” so to speak. I pride myself in my ability to find that sneaky tight line to get myself out of the tough situations and close to the pin to save my pars. Whether it be a sweeping anhyzer forehand shot, a cut roller, or an overhead shot… I know that I can get it out of the woods and get a look for a putt!
What is your best physical tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Stay loose and stretch a lot!
I constantly see beginning disc golfers grip the disc as hard as they possibly can and tighten up every muscle in their body trying to throw further and further…. Keep loose and flexible with a firm yet comfortable grip.
What is your best mental tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Let it go and move on! The hardest part of any sport is learning how to let go and move on after a not so great moment. Focus on the shot ahead and not what just happened!
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
My preparation comes simply with living and breathing the game every day. From eating foods that I know won’t upset my stomach or cause me to lose sleep, to simply just playing weekly leagues/practice rounds and lots of putting. I try not to get too psyched up about a big event… but rather do the things the same as I do every other day so when the time comes it feels just like any other round!
