Beginner Tip

Start slow. Learning to throw neutral putters and mids will show you flaws in your form and allow you to fix mistakes from the start instead of ingraining them.

Play with better players. You'll see lines and shots that you may not have thought of (or thought were possible). Then you get to try them yourself!

Most Memorable Moment

In the 2017 Ams Minnesota Majestic, I got to play with a great friend on the final round chase card. Both of us had streaks of greatness, but we ended up falling short of the victory. But, hitting my final putt on the island hole with my wife and son watching from the deck was pretty special.

What Separates Team Dynamic Discs?

Good question. I think all of the Teams out there are working to grow the sport, but I really enjoy the focus that Dynamic Discs puts on it. I get to hear stories all the time from Team members who are giving away discs or promoting events. When one of the top Team members is out striping courses before events, you know there is a commitment to making a positive impact. The family aspect is also pretty amazing. I see Team members once a year at GBO and conversations start up right where they left off without missing a beat.


In The Bag

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Metallic Lucid Defender

The perfect overstable complement to the BioFuzion Defenders I've been bagging. Used for hard hyzer finishes as well as windy days.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Defender

My go-to distance driver. When fresh, they are reliably overstable. With some seasoning, they become great max distance drivers.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Sheriff

For max distance, I go with the Sheriff. I'll also use a broken in one for my long range rollers.

Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Felon

For those super windy days, and when I just want a shorter more overstable flight, the Lucid-X Felon is a wonderful more overstable complement to my normal Felons.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Felon

My overstable fairway workhorse. I rely on it for distance control hyzers, windy days, ugly forehands, and fun shots.

Dynamic Discs DyeMax Captain America Felon

A more understable complement to my Lucid Felons. I can get a little straighter line with more distance before that great Felon fade kicks in.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Getaway

Faster than the Explorer, not as overstable as the Felon, and with glide on par with the Escape. I can rely on the Getaway when I almost want a Defender, but don't want to overshoot the target.

Latitude 64 Opto Explorer

The new workhorse of my fairway lineup. The Explorer is the fairway version of the Truth, reliably straight with predictable fade.


Dynamic Discs Lucid Escape

Such a sneaky long fairway, it can often sneak into distance driver range. The Escape is great for hitting and holding lines. I use broken in versions for my straight to understable fairway and roller discs.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Maverick

I'm not always carrying a Maverick, but if I know there will be heavy woods, I love having it around. I can throw it at 70-80% and trust it to hold tricky lines. I can't recommend it enough to newer players.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Lucid Justice

It's OVERstable. I can trust it to fade even in the worst of winds. Great for both forehand and backhand approaches.

Dynamic Discs Lucid EMAC Truth

One of the most thrown discs in my bag, I carry 2-4 depending on the course. I carry a range running from slightly overstable to understable to fill my anhyzer mid slot.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Patrol

It's on the opposite end of the spectrum from the Justice. I don't always throw it, but for hard turnover shots, low ceiling technical rollers, and high turnover lines, the Patrol can get me out of trouble.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Slammer

I avoided overstable putters for a couple of years, instead relying on the Justice to fill that role, but the Slammer found its way into the lineup. It provides me with a predictable finish on approaches.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Judge

My throwing putter of choice. I carry a fresh for straight and hyzer throws/approaches and a beat-in version for my understable approach thrower.

Dynamic Discs Classic Judge

I've loved the Judge for putting since I picked them up. The Classic provides a clean release and confidence that if I hit the line the putter is going in.
