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!

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Lucid/Fluid Escape

My go-to driver. Anything straight, hyzer, and anhyzer under 400'.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Getaway

Everything an Escape is, plus added stability.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Sheriff

When I need an open bomb, I shoot the Sheriff.

The most predictable distance driver out there, bar none. My Defender is especially valuable in windy conditions and bad weather.

Sneaky consistent S-shot distance.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Enforcer

Great disc for distance hyzers and headwind hyzers.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Freedom

Specialty disc for power rollers and long anhyzers.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Felon

Best overstable fairway driver with a predictable finish.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Criminal

For shorter hyzer shots and shorter headwind shots.

Westside Discs Tournament Hatchet

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

Midrange

Control shots that stay on the line.

Westside Discs VIP Tursas

Putters

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Warden

Driving putter for anything 275' and in as well as straight approaches.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Deputy

Great for turnover putter shots and extremely tight woods.

Dynamic Discs Classic Warden

Chain-grabber with great feel. My putter of choice.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Slammer

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