Most Memorable Tournament win or moment in DG?
This is a tough one with so many good memories, but the one that sticks out would be the Motown Showdown in 2015. First off a portion of the proceeds/ raffles goes to Special Olympics. So to start my 3rd hole of the day I threw a low hyzer and skip aced, worth $470, with a Proline Tsunami. After the first round I was tied for 3rd and two strokes off the lead. Second round I fought back to tie for 2nd. Donated part of my ace money to the charity and then had a nice dinner with my girlfriend.
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
My mental game is the strongest part for me. My main motto is “Don’t Get Mad” and I try my best to relax and have fun. Always find a positive in a negative situation.
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Remember to always have fun, in the end it’s just a game. Don’t rush your shots, take your time, think about what you are trying to do. And my favorite “A bad shot is good practice, and it takes a lot of practice.”
