Most Memorable Moment

My first PDGA sanctioned win came back in 2015 at the 21st Annual Tahoe Pro/AM. I was able to put some solid rounds together on a course I was playing blind to take home the win.

In The Bag

Drivers

Westside Discs VIP Sword

Perfect when you need to get distance, but need control as well. Perfect for tailwind shots.

Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Trespass

When I need to fight the wind, I reach for this. Very reliable, great for getting down the fairway with a soft finish

Latitude 64 Opto Recoil

When I need to get that hard left finish, this is what I reach for. Great distance, with a predictable fade.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Vandal

Probably my most thrown disc. Will handle any angle it is thrown on and keep that flight until the end.

Latitude 64 Opto Fury

When I come to a wooded fairway that I need to finish to the right, this is the one. Straight flight, with just the slight finish right.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Getaway

Just the opposite of my Fury, this disc will thread the wooded fairway with amazing glide, only wanting to push forward with a gentle finish left.

Westside Discs Tournament Destiny

Hyzer-flip perfection. Released on a hyzer, this will flip up, turn right, only to come back and finish in the fairway. Good for the occasional roller as well.

Westside Discs Tournament Hatchet

My turnover disc for sure. Released on an anhyzer release, this will hold the turnover line with minimal effort.

Latitude 64 Opto XXX

My distance thumber disc. I know that when released to the left, this will pan out and finish to the right every single time.

Latitude 64 Opto Spark

My short distance thumber disc. Most of the time, you will see me use this to get around a corner by placing the flight plate on the ground to mimic a forehand shot.

Midrange

Westside Discs VIP Warship

When I need to get distance from the fairway to the basket. Most reliable flight, great glide, and finish.

Westside Discs Hybrid Warship (VIP pictured)

When I need to get just a little more fade, with a touch more glide.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Justice (Prime pictured)

Perfect for getting around a corner, but with little to no skip.

Westside Discs VIP Tursas

Best understable midrange for me. When I know I need to get right of the fairway, I will throw this.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Hybrid Warden

Sneaky glide with a perfect finish. Stays straight full flight

Westside Discs BT Medium Harp

Tacky feel, great in the hand, perfect for an overstable approach disc.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Warden

Very reliable putter. Soft feel in the hand. Good for winter putting or summer putting. Occasional upshot disc for me as well.
