Favorite DGA Disc:
Undertow – it’s one of the discs that started my transition to DGA. At 80% power, it’s a great straight flyer. Full power it gets a great S-turn and excellent distance while maintaining control, and it’s fantastic to crush in a tailwind.
Reef – fits my putting style perfectly, holds a nice straight line and I find myself putting more confidently. I also use an SP Reef for long approach shots where you need to hold a straight line and land flat.

What about being a part of Team DGA excites you the most?
The comradery of the team members. I’m also very excited to represent a company that not only improved MY game, but who’s actions are consistent with their mission of growing the sport. DGA really does support people who are passionate about the game and good ambassadors for Disc Golf.
2016 Gold Pan – Two rounds on an amazingly technical course, then two rounds at a more “get-able” course. Finished round one a stroke off the lead, round two tied, and round three tied. In the final round, the young man I battled with all weekend and I both played lights out on the final nine holes as the rain started to come down. Parking drives, par saving up-shots, huge putts. I wasn’t keeping track but I knew it was close in my head. Counted them up at the end and I took the win by one stroke.
What is the strongest part of your disc golf game?
My home course of Skyline Park has certainly taught me VARIETY. Forehands, Backhands, Thumbers, Flex Shots, Turnovers, Hyzers, or completely straight…you need every shot in the book to perform well there.
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Be active in your local club and play some rounds with people who are better than you. Watching their game and different approach to holes is very helpful and most are very willing to offer advice and guidance.
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
Mentally – Compete often so big events aren’t as stressful. Weekly/Monthly events, tag rounds, local tournaments, etc. Having your nerves under control is a great advantage.
Physically – Stretching daily and playing a few times each week…keep your body active. In longer events, sometimes it can come down to stamina and who still has gas left in the tank.
