Who was the first female disc golfer you saw throw that could really bomb it?
Catrina Allen!! Girl, whooooo……mind blown and was like dangit she can out drive me! But it was a rewarding and amazing experience playing against her. Seeing how she handles certain situations and never gets flustered. That’s who I would love to model my game after. She’s genuine and doesn’t judge if you’re playing below your level. I would love to play with her again…..I’M COMING FOR YOU GIRL!!! (jk)
You seem to have tons of positive energy. Do you have a magical power source?
It’s LOVE! Since I met my wife, she has shown me a different version of the world. I haven’t had it all gravy my whole life but now that I have her, WHO NEEDS GRAVY ANYMORE?! I want to make the world a better and beautiful place. And I have been able to do that with disc golf (charity events and fundraisers) and since my wife plays now, disc golf is even better. No one likes a Negative Nancy all the time, heck even when I make bad shots on the course….I laugh. I laugh hysterically. Being positive doesn’t just help you, it helps others and you may not even know that you helped them.
What makes you happier than anything else in the world?
My wife and my 3 beautiful furbabies. I can go out with my little family and play disc golf all day long.
If you could share one message with the world, what would it be? And, if you could share one message with the disc golf community, what would that one be?
For the world: Drop the hate and judgment…. we all have to live here together, why not become one big family, then we can all conquer the hate. For disc golf: This one’s for the ladies: Don’t just look at big names and think I wish I can do that, because you can!! That same woman, like Catrina (Allen) or Elaine (King), they have both been in your shoes. The greats were once beginners too! Never give up, smile, have fun and practice.
