Q&A

Memorable Win:

1985 Cherry Blossom in Calvert Park, MD. I hit a 60 footer on the 99th (and final) hole to tie Michael Conger. We then had a 10 hole sudden death play off, which I won. We both hit some awesome putts to keep the playoff alive.

Advice:

Learn how to throw a Roc. Distance will come. Don't get upset that you can't throw 400 feet yet. Spend most of your practice time throwing short approach shots and putts inside 30 feet. Learn to throw one disc exceptionally well BEFORE adding a bunch of different types of discs to your bag.

Goals:

To have fun, teach others and to win as many events as possible!!!

REVIEWS

Aviar

Quite simply the greatest putt and approach disc ever made. A must for any serious competitor's bag. For drives, it is an advanced (or better) player's disc. New players should look to it for putting only.

Banshee

The Banshee is my go to disc when it gets windy. Also my number one choice for longer side arm throws. Excellent side arm roller disc as well. This is THE disc for low ceiling back hand shots as well.
