Q&A

Memorable Win:

2005 Pro Masters World title- Worked hard that spring, went to gym 3-5 days a week, practiced 4-5 days a week, practice and preparation paid off.

Advice:

Enjoy the game! Respect the players and the course. Practice pays off! Quality over quantity...

Goals:

Short term- Try to squeeze in a few more tournaments each year.
Long term- Another world title, and getting into the Disc Golf Hall of Fame would be nice.

Additional Comments:

I have been playing since 1985, have over 150 wins, met a lot of disc golfers from all over the world. The passion, desire and kinship you see in ALL disc golfers that love the sport. We have a unique family, very diversified. Keep on keeping on, hand full of discs and blue skies I'm good to go!
