Beginner Tip

Find ONE midrange or lower speed driver that you LOVE…and practice, practice, practice with it! Play single disc rounds. Throw that mold on as many lines and angles as you can, learning all of the different things it can and can’t do. Try different weights and plastic types in that mold and see how they fly differently. Then add new molds slowly, one at a time, from that center disc in different stabilities and speeds.

Most Memorable Moment

Completion and Grand Opening of Deer Run DGC in Nashville, Indiana. Deer Run was my first course design, and I poured my life into it for almost a year. We celebrated its opening in April 2016 with the Dynamic Discs RV, two Team DD pros, local officials, and 80 golfers. That day was a mixture of pure joy, exhaustion, pride, and relief!
