- Favorite DGA Disc:
I would have to say I love the Rogue and the Breaker. The Breaker is very reliable and super strong in windy conditions. It’s a great approach disc not only for my forehand upshots but backhand as well. It’s a straight flyer for me but can be a little more under stable the lighter the weight. The Rogue is a fast speed straight flyer for me as well. The sp line rogue has a little turn to it if give it any anhyzer but for the most part has s flying flight path! The squall is also a new addition to my bag. The squall has added some serious distance to my mid-range game. It can be a little flippy if I want it to be, but if not it’s a great fast speed straight flyer.
- Favorite Apparel Item:
I love the new logo. Seriously hyped on the multi color DGA basket icon!

Why did you choose to be part of Team DGA?
I’ve worked with DGA for a few years and have always respected the quality of plastic, baskets, attitude, and gear they provide. DGA has been around for a long time and has grown continually with the sport. Everyone I’ve met involved with the company is super friendly and passionate about disc golf, and it not only says it in the quality of discs but the people representing it!
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
I would have to say the strongest part of my game is being able to be very versatile. I throw backhand mostly, but have great forehand upshots and approach game. Improving my rolling skills for fun!
What is your best physical tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Practice, Putt, slow down, field work, and remember why you’re out there… because you Love it!
What is your best mental tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Treat every throw like it’s a new start. Don’t worry about distance but consistency and practice. Slow your throw down until it feels natural, and never forget to have fun!
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
I like to eat a good dinner and surround myself around friends/family the night before. I’ll practice the course earlier that week and definitely putt the night before. I don’t ever tend to stress but just get a good night rest and wake up feeling motivated and excited to get out on the course.
