- Favorite DGA Disc: My favorite DGA disc is the Hellfire. The Hellfire is a very consistent overstable fairway driver. I can power it all I want and I know it will always finish left. I like using the hellfire for sidearms with a little bit of an anhyzer so it flattens out and goes a good distance. They are also great for thumbers and get out of trouble shots.
- Favorite DGA apparel item: DGA Snapback Caps

Why did you choose to be part of Team DGA?
DGA has great discs and they are consistent and come in awesome colors. Also I really find it awesome to be representing the Disc Golf company that started it all!
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
The strongest part of my game would be my putting and upshots. I like to throw a lot of flick upshots with putters and mid ranges. I’m able to give it the right amount of finesse because of my Ultimate playing background.
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Best tip I can offer is always stretch and stay hydrated on and off the course. You need to take care of your body if you want to play this sport for a long time! Also control your breathing when you’re throwing. I find when I do control it I am more relaxed and worry free.
What is your best mental tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Don’t worry about what everyone’s score is on the card. Just focus on your game and take it one shot at a time. Remember it’s you against the course. DON’T FORGET TO HAVE FUN!
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
When I’m preparing for an event I really like to just go to the course and practice shots on each hole. I usually throw 2 different shots on each hole and putt from both and move on. After the practice round I’ll put for about 30 minutes inside the circle. While I’m putting I like to set goals for the tournament and keep mental notes on the trouble spots in my game that day and think on it before the next day. I try and get 7-8 hours of sleep before the day of the tournament. I’ll wake up and drink plenty of water and eat some not fatty foods for breakfast. I usually get to the course about 2 hours before tee-off and just stretch and throw on a field. I will usually putt 30 minutes before and then however long it takes for the 2 minute horn to go off.
