Beginner Tip

Don't be too hard on yourself, everyone had to start somewhere. Just remember to keep everything controlled and smooth and with practice and determination, you will see your hard work pay off. Don't forget to have fun because if you are not doing that then you are not doing it right!

Most Memorable Moment

Even though I've been playing disc golf since 2005, my most memorable moment has to be winning the 2018 US Amateur Match Play Championships in Emporia. Not only did I put together some of the most solid rounds of golf in my career, I got to experience the whole thing with my little brother on the bag encouraging me and helping keep my mental game strong.

In The Bag

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Raider

Long drive shots that I can trust to fade back at the end.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Enforcer

Mostly forehand drives and headwind drives where I can trust it not to flip.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Trespass

Main driver. Used for open distance shots where I can take advantage of the full flex of the disc flight.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Trespass

Used for long drives that I need to stay right and rollers.


Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Felon

Used for more controlled drives, but I do get that reliable fade left at the end. Also used for shorter forehand shots.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Criminal

Mainly used for touchy forehand shots with a little distance.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Vandal

Go-to hyzer flip to straight drives that glides for days!

Latitude 64 Opto-X Explorer

Used for straight, controlled fairway shots with slow fade at the end of the flight.


Westside Discs Tournament Seer

Used for flippy right turning drives that need to hold that line until the end.

Westside Discs VIP Boatman

Used as a longer Explorer when I need a straight distance shot with not a lot of movement in the flight path and reliable, slow fade at the end.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Lucid Justice

Strong headwind and sidearm shots. Also used for technical shot shaping.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Verdict

Stable to overstable tee shots with reliable left finishes.

Dynamic Discs Lucid EMAC Truth

Shots that need to start flat and finish flat in the 300-350ft range.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Warrant

Mostly used for the woods game. Great shot shaping disc and shorter shots that need to go right and stay right.

Westside Discs VIP Warship

Used for long straight tunnel shots and no flare at the end.

Westside Discs VIP Gatekeeper

Used for straight shots inside 300'.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Lucid Slammer

Headwind putter drives and short shots that need to go left fairly quickly.

Westside Discs VIP Harp

Strictly short forehand shots.

Dynamic Discs Prime Burst Deputy

Short hyzer flip or upshots that need to go right and not fade.

Latitude 64 Zero Medium Pure

My go-to putter for years. It is used anywhere inside Circle 1 & 2.

Westside Discs Moonshine Maiden (BT Medium pictured)

Straight shorter tee shots and upshot disc.

Latitude 64 Moonshine Keystone

Great for half power upshots and longer hyper flip shots.
