Balance is an absolute need on the disc golf course. Whether off the tee, on an upshot, 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.
Most Memorable Moment
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.
What Separates Team Dynamic Discs?
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.
In The Bag
Latitude 64 Gold Stiletto
The Stiletto is the speedy meathook in my bag. It has enough speed to penetrate a good distance before its natural inclination to fade takes over. I use it for sweeping hyzers up to 375’.
Dynamic Discs Lucid Enforcer
The Enforcer is a do-everything high speed disc. I know that I can reach back and rip on it into a headwind, but it’ll maintain a great controlled distance path in calm conditions as well.
Dynamic Discs Lucid Sheriff
The Sheriff has taken over as my go-to distance driver. Tailwind, crosswind, or calm, I can rely on it to hold and carry a long ways. It will even hold nicely into a headwind with the right amount of height.
Westside Discs Tournament Destiny
The Destiny won a spot in my bag because of its sheer glide. It holds amazing glide on sky turnovers and stretch forehands. Beyond that it is a reliable distance roller I’ve yet to find an equal for.
Dynamic Discs Lucid Criminal
The Criminal is the meathookiest meathook to have ever meathooked. Out of the hand – forehand or backhand – the Criminal does one thing: fights to fade. Start to finish. An incredibly trustworthy disc.
Latitude 64 Opto River Pro
The River Pro has an amazingly comfortable rim, and flies like a true fairway. When put on a line, it tends to hold that line for a long time before fading, and with power it flips to flat without excess turn.
Dynamic Discs Lucid Justice
The Justice is the Criminal’s beefy little brother. Out of the hand it wants nothing more than to fade, and if you try to tell it to do otherwise you’re likely to pull a muscle. Wonderful wind-fighting mid.
Dynamic Discs Lucid Slammer (Classic pictured)
The Slammer holds a great straight line, with a finish that is reliable but minimal. Put a little muscle on it and it also holds a nice glide. This makes it the ideal disc for level release straight tunnels.
Dynamic Discs Lucid Suspect
As a reliable gliding mid that resists turn at high speeds, the Suspect is great for low ceiling tunnel shots that require a little more speed than a putter.
Dynamic Discs Fuzion Judge
The Judge holds a great line with a lot of power behind it. A judge, with enough height, is a reliable tunnel disc out to 330’ for me with little worry of deviation from the line out of the hand.
