Beginner Tip

Be on the lookout for more experienced players on the course. Approach them and get to know them and ask to play with them. It may be intimidating at first but watch them and learn from them. Strive to be better than them and don’t stop until you are.

Most Memorable Moment

I would have to say being on the green of hole 16 at Emporia County Club when Paul McBeth won his 2022 Pro Worlds title. That is a moment I will never forget.

What Separates Team Dynamic Discs?

Everyone says it and we all mean it. Dynamic Discs is not just a team of golfers, a warehouse, and retail store. Dynamic Discs is not just a company. Dynamic Discs is a Family.


In the Bag

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Supreme Escape

Hyzer flips, tail winds and straight shots. The glide on this disc is unbelievable. I carry multiple in the bag.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Criminal

Skip shots, stiff headwinds and those times you really need a lot of fade with minimal glide. Mostly a utility disc for me.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Felon

Hyzers between 250 and 300 feet, for skip shots and headwinds. My Lucid is quite old and will travel straight and flat for a good ways. I also have a Lucid-X when extra stability is needed.

Latitude 64 Royal Grand Grace

Hyzer flips and long hyzers where the disc needs to carry before fading. I bag and old one that is quite seasoned and a KT Orbit.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Enforcer

Long flex shots and hyzers. This is one of my oldest discs and what I reach for when I need max distance.

Westside Discs VIP Hatchet

Hyzer flip turn overs that won't fade out and back hand rollers.

Latitude 64 Opto Explorer

Workhorse go-to disc for most holes around 300 to 350 feet.

Latitude 64 Royal Grand Rive

Flex shots and hyzers that need to fade more than my Enforcer.

Latitude 64 Opto River

Straight shots and turnovers that will still fade at the end of the flight to land flat. I bag multiple Rivers in various states of wear and rely on them heavily.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion-X Burst Maverick

Straight shots with minimal turn or fade.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Lucid Emac Truth

This disc truly does it all. Low straight shots or hyzers most any kind of wind. I carry multiple Emac Truths in Lucid and Fuzion X.

Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Verdict

For when there is too much headwind for the Emac Truth or I need more fade from the shot.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Bounty

Straight shots that need to flip and glide with a neutral finish.

Dynamic Discs Prime Moonshine Culprit

Approach and scramble shots.

Putters

Latitude 64 Gold Pure

For dead straight putter throws.

Westside Discs Tournament-X Maiden

For when I need a little stability than my Pure.

Westside Discs Tournament Shield

For straight to stable putter throws with a nice fade at the end.

Dynamic Discs Classic Judge

My putting putters.
