Q&A

Memorable Win:

Coming from behind to catch Jim Palmeri in the last round of the 1998 Worlds. Everyone (including me) expected him to win. It was the first time I realized that I was a good player, with potential to be even better, and that I was tough under pressure.

Advice:

Depends on your objectives. If you want to improve:
  1. Ask good experienced players for advice and demos.
  2. Don't play very much recreationally.
  3. Practice by yourself in an open area.
  4. Throw away your trophies when you win.
  5. Move up, so you always face better players.

Goals:

I want to set standards of performance and professionalism that will inspire older players, and perhaps some younger ones as well. I want to convince the PDGA to continue to acknowledge the importance of fierce, competitive and professional experiences for older players.
