Do you hold any course records?
gregg_120
Gregg: I still have just over 10 course records I think. All around the country. My favorite one is at BlueGill in the Grand Rapids area. That was one of McBeth’s training courses before Worlds. He spent a couple of weeks there so I was stoked to get that record. It was one of the best rounds of my life. I also have a 1084-rated round logged at Milo West in Oregon. That was another memorable round but I don’t know if it is a record.

We noticed a Barsby for President post on Facebook. That’s actually not a bad idea. If we made you president of Innova, what would you do on your first day in office?
gregg_120
Gregg: I would bring all team members together and make sure our core values are on the same page. I would make sure we were in position to be as successful as we could be. I would also make sure our actions are truly helping the core retailers. And on the course I want to continue Innova’s winning tradition for many years to come.

Throughout your travels you have built up a substantial fan base. Tell us a little bit about that.

So if you could only play one more round, where and with who would you play?
gregg_120
Gregg: Pickard Park, right outside Des Moines. I would play with the Champ (Ken Climo), Mike Williams, and Tom Johnson who is actually a really good golfer on the PGA Tour. Tom is pretty good disc golfer as well.

Is music still an important part of your life?
gregg_120
Gregg: Yes, music is huge for me. Drumming is a big part of my life. I am actually setting up a kit today in Sacramento and plan to do a video shoot with a friend of mine. Long term I still plan to pursue music during the times when my disc golf schedule isn’t so packed.

What kind of music do you like?
gregg_120
Gregg: I listen to everything. But mostly hip hop. And extreme forms of metal. I just picked up a bunch of new CDs, actually.

What?! CDs… you do know they have music on the Internet now, right?
gregg_120
Gregg: I am old school. Nothing online for me. I like to support the bands by purchasing CDs. That’s just my preference. I spend a lot of time in the car so I always get my music fix.

So no headphones on the course?
gregg_120
Gregg: No, because I can’t find a DiscMan with a good enough skip protector. I can’t be scratching up all my stuff up.

You must have a ton of CDs.
gregg_120
Gregg: One of my greatest organizational strengths is with my CD collection. Keeping them all straight is a top priority.
