Q&A

Memorable Win:

The 2005 World Championships for the intensity and level of focus I was able to maintain during the rounds and then release it into calm state in the evenings. Also, the 2006 Mixed Doubles World Championship for its classic pairings and dramatic last hole finish. The same three lead card pairings were rematched from 2005 into 2006; defending Champs Angela Tschiggfrie and Chris Sprague, 2nd place The Readings, and Birgitta Lagerholm with partner Anders Kallstrom. All three teams were tied going into the final round. The Reading and Tschiggfrie/Sprague set the pace early with back and forth stellar play. Both teams were tied going into the final hole 18 at Lake Olmstead, which is a daredevil of a birdie hole. It is a touch with power turnover shot with Ob high along the right side and Ob low down a steep cliff to the water's edge. Spraque went hyzer and landed down the cliff side safe then Jay stepped up and with great control and confidence and threw the perfect turning Coyote shot for the 15 foot birdie putt to win the championship by one.

Advice:

Be Patient with your game, yourself, and others. There is no substitution for practice, for disc golf is a game of timing and technique. Remember to enjoy your casual rounds and take seriously your competitive ones.

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