Beginner Tip

All new players need to learn about four basic things.

#1 - Disc golf is about having fun and enjoying yourself at one of the coolest competitions in the world today; never forget that is why we play.

#2 - If you really want to be good, you should spend more time throwing on the practice field than on the course.

#3 - (and a mistake I, unfortunately made) Learn to throw the discs that match your arm speed and ability first.  As you get better form, better snap, and better arm speed, then move to faster and faster discs.  When I teach beginners, I give them a putt/approach disc and a mid-range disc to learn with.

#4 - Being able to putt well not only can take a few strokes off your score, it will also open more possibilities and change the way you mentally size up each hole.

Most Memorable Moment

My most memorable moment happened in Emporia. In 2016, I won my division at the GBO, and took home one of those coveted glass-blown trophies. Wow!

Long anhyzers and S-shot distance.

Long distance hyzers and headwinds.

Westside Discs Tournament Hatchet

Tight gaps, longer finish-right-and-hold shots, and long rollers.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Felon

Best overstable fairway driver by far. Very predictable finish.

Latitude 64 Gold Trident

Utility/get out of trouble, short sidearms, and headwind mids.

Westside Discs Tournament Queen

Max distance rollers. That’s all I use it for.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Fuzion EMAC Truth

Control shots that stay on the line.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Slammer

The Slammer is great for hyzer and wind approach shots. It finishes predictably left without skipping at all.
