Q&A

Memorable Win:

Pendaries spring classic, 2014. That was the first time I realized I could beat some of the best. I had before, but not when they played really well.

Advice:

I am often asked how I improved so quickly when I started at the age of 28. Practice practice practice. Disc golf was my daily zen, I literally went to a field and repeated shots for hours every day. It was never boring, and I was able to commit to one type of shot for months at a time. Later came the tournament play and head game, which I am still learning.

Goals:

I tend to get down on myself when I am playing poorly, being positive in my head and towards other players is my number one goal. I've done a good job this season and my success in mostly due to that. Long term, I really want to win an A tier before I start playing Masters the year after next!

Thanks to my wife and son for allowing me to continue to pursue my personal passion! And thanks Innova for all the support!
