Balance is an absolute need on the disc golf course. Whether off the tee, on an up shot, or on the green - if you are off balance at any point, you are inaccurate. Work to develop proper controlled form with a comfortable center of balance. In addition to helping accuracy in and of itself, you will also find that other aspects of your form will fall in line more easily.
In 2008, fresh off of a 3rd place finish at the United States Amateur Championships, I entered my first B Tier as a professional - the Kingston Open at the Great Blue Heron DGC. Within our region it still stands as the most competitive field ever attracted. I played a strong enough weekend to take the event home in the third hole of a sudden death playoff over Gregg Barsby and Tyler Horne. Being embraced in a bear hug by a group of my fellow local golfers after the final putt dropped remains one of my fondest on course memories.
I think I'm echoing the rest of the guys on the team when I say: family. From the moment I joined the team, Jeremy Rusco and his staff have embraced me like family, and at times tolerated me like family as I've gone through growing pains and matured as a golfer and a person (both on and off the course). Being a part of the team has helped me develop a maturity as a competitor that could not have been achieved without their support.
