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

Latitude 64 Gold X-Blend Burst Ballista Pro

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

Dynamic Discs Lucid Enforcer

Used mainly for headwind and forehand drives.

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 Fuzion Sheriff

Used for distance drives that have a little more shape to them. Great for hyzer flip shots.


Dynamic Discs Lucid Criminal

Mainly used for touchy forehand shots with a little distance.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Felon

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

Latitude 64 Opto-X Explorer

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

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Escape

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


Dynamic Discs Lucid Convict

Slow right turning controlled drives and great for tunnel shots.

Westside Discs Tournament Seer

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

Latitude 64 Gold XXX

Shorter forehand drives and touchy forehands in the woods.

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 Suspect

Straight shots that will fight the flip but not fade too much at the end.

Dynamic Discs Lucid EMAC Truth

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

Latitude 64 Gold Fuse

Great utility disc that will stay on any line I put it on. It's basically a shorter Truth with no fade.

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.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Lucid Slammer

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

Westside Discs Tournament Burst Harp

Strictly short forehand shots.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Warden

Straight shorter tee shots and upshot disc.

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.
