Favorite DGA Disc:
I love this disc for its straight lines. It will fly on any angle thrown and it goes really far for a mid-range.Hellfire- When I need confidence in my hyzer or forehand, in any situation, I reach for my Hellfire
Most memorable tournament win or moment in DG?:
- I went to Medina, OH and played in the Roscoe’s Revenge tournament held by the Jenkins family. My friends and I went to have fun and try out a new course. I ended up being in the lead for the last round. I was playing head to head with Ricky Wysocki, while Avery Jenkins was following and taking pictures. It was so amazing! I ended up winning the tournament and I still have, and use, the basket that I won.

What about being a part of Team DGA excites you the most?
I am very excited to be a part of the company that started it all. It is an absolute privilege. I’ve been throwing DGA for a long time, and I love how dependable it is and it feels great in my hand.
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
The strongest part of my disc golf game would be my composure. I try to always keep a positive outlook, no matter what the situation. I love to have a great time, both on and off the course.
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
My advice to a new golfer would be to take everything slow. Smooth = Far. Play your local events. It will give you confidence to take with you to larger tournaments. Local Pros are usually always there to help you out if you have any questions or want some tips.
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
The way I prepare for big events is to get there early, stretch out, and chat with old friends (brings positive morale). I also play or walk the course to get some ideas for a game plan and warm up by playing catch. If I go into each hole or round with a positive outlook, I perform more soundly.
