IN THE BAG

DISTANCE

Destroyer

Pro Destroyer

I carry several max weight pro destroyers, they give me stable control and distance.
Archon

Star Archon

I use this disc when I need more distance than a Valkyrie, and it gives me a similar flight path.
Katana

Pro Katana

I carry 2 max weight Pro Katanas for big anhyzer shots, and when I want a hyzer shot to flip up and turn over.
Valkyrie

Star Valkyrie

My most versatile fairway. I grab this disc a lot on long wooded holes.
Roadrunner

Champion Roadrunner

My most reliable disc for anhyzers & precision.

FAIRWAY

TeeBird

GStar TeeBird

For throwing incredibly straight, and having a reliable & minimal hyzer finish.
Eagle

Champion Eagle

150 class specialty disc. I use this disc for very tight and technical shots that also require some distance.

MID-RANGE

Spider

Champion Spider

A new addition to my bag, it can handle windy approach shots, yet isn't as over stable as a Gator.
Gator

Champion Gator

For hard hyzers and windy days.
Roc3

Champion Roc3

I use this disc for long approach shots, and it's a great disc off the tee box.
Mako3

Champion Mako3

I throw the mako3 for most of my midrange shots. It will fly on any one you put it on. By far my favorite disc.
Kite

Star Kite

A specialty disc that has been in my bag since the beginning. Very understable mid, but it feels like a driver in your hand.

PUTT & APPROACH

JK Aviar

Pro JK Aviar

I love this disc for long jump putts, approaching the basket, and off the tee box for shorter holes.
Classic Aviar

DX Classic Aviar

New in the bag this year, my go-to putter inside the circle.
Aviar

Star Aviar

New in my bag. I am using this as a driving putter.

Q&A

Memorable Win:

2014 WGE at Maple Hill. After round one I was sitting in 5th place and I didn't make top card. Second round I shot a bogie free round & 4 under par. This got me the overall win by 1 stroke.

Advice:

Be patient. Study the game, and always take in advice and criticism in order to progress. Disc golf is a mental game as well as a physical game. Always take a second to make the right choice before throwing- the right disc, the right line, then focus.

Goals:

My short term goals and long term goals have always been the same. To "continue improvement" is how I define my personal success.
