Q&A

Memorable Win:

2014 Oregon State Championships- This was a tournament that I had dreamed about winning for a long time. To be able to call myself the best in the state for that year in your home state was my biggest goal for the 2014 season.

Advice:

Practice like you want to be the best. Do not take days off because of bad weather or because you do not feel like playing. If you want to be great you must dedicate yourself to the game. Play with better players, ask your local pro if you can join up with them for a round. Watch and learn.

Goals:

Short term: Qualify for USDGC in 2016
Long term: Find a way to tour full time for a year or two.

Additional Comments:

I am a huge believer in teaching kids our sport. Take a little time out of your schedule to run a clinic for kids or donate discs to a local non-profit that might teach disc golf. You never know what may come of it.
