Beginner Tip

Control over distance. Be able to point and shoot with a midrange before moving to a fairway driver. Also, get your form right in a stand still position before incorporating an X-step. Have fun! Grow the sport by sharing the sport! Play with as many different players as you can. They all have their own tips!

Most Memorable Moment

Most recently, joining Team Westside! I have many moments every time I see new players out at the two courses I worked on getting built. Sharing the joy of disc golf with new people is my favorite feeling.

Disc Golf Goals

Continue to help my community by growing the sport, building courses and coaching new players. I plan on starting a highschool club team and my ratings goal is +900.
