Favorite DGA Disc:
- First Flight Hurricane
The First flight Hurricane form the 2011 PDGA pro worlds is one of my favorite discs. It’s reliable enough for short hyzer drives or for longer flex shots. It’s not as stable as the Proline Hurricane but that gives it its ability to flip and glide for longer distance.
Most memorable tournament win or moment in DG?:
- Most memorable moment for me would be winning AZ States in intermediate.

What about being a part of Team DGA excites you the most?
Being able to represent DGA and to continue playing disc golf.
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
I believe the strongest part of my game is my putting. I’ve always been told my form while putting is perfect, and I’ve been working to improve it to make those longer putts that are difficult to make.
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
Have fun and take your time. Don’t let little mistakes bother you.
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
In preparation for a big event I practice as much as possible. There’s no better way to prepare than to be confident in your abilities going into an event.
