Q&A

Memorable Win:

The 2005 World Championships for the intensity and level of focus I was able to maintain during the rounds. I saw the intended line, executed the shot, made my putts and thoroughly enjoyed the mix and challenge the Allentown, PA Worlds courses provided. The 2006 Mixed Doubles World Championship for its classic pairings, dramatic last hole finish and watching Jay clutch the last drive within 15 feet for the win. My other three highlights are being awarded a spirit and sportsmanship award and being inducted into the Iowa Hall of Fame.

Advice:

Be Patient with your game, yourself and others. There is no substitution for practice. Disc golf is a game of timing and technique. Remember to enjoy your casual rounds and take seriously your competitive ones. Know the rules and carry a rule book in tournament play.

REVIEWS

TL

My true love of the Fairway Drivers. Yes, it's slower, but it's accurate. I trust many shots with this disc.
