Steven Waites - Princeton, Indiana

Beginner Tip

Slow and smooth. Work on leading with the elbow. Keep any sort of run up short and slow until you have reach back and pull through timing down. It’s easy to create bad habits, and very hard to break them.

Most Memorable Moment

My first tournament win. The 2018 Indiana State Championship Rec. division. I was 1 stroke off the lead after round 1, took the lead and held it for rounds 2 and 3.

Career Goals

Learn from those who have came before me, enjoy the game with those around me, and do my part to improve for those to come. Besides hosting memorable events, I would also like to take my game to a level to be able to compete in A-tier and NT events.

In The Bag

Drivers

Westside Discs VIP-X World

My go-to driver. This disc can fight a headwind while getting max distance. I love the glide that the World provides. I can trust it on forced turnovers to always flatten out and come back left.

Westside Discs VIP Sword

This disc is perfect for those low ceiling woods drives that you need to keep straight. I can power up on this disc and watch it flip flat with a little turn. Very predictable, disc similar to the Trespass.

Westside Discs VIP War Horse

I bag three of these amazing beef cakes. When joining Team Westside, this is the one disc I looked forward to the most. My beat in War Horse is a long, straight disc on a smooth, flat line. I know I can pump this mold out over OB or around trees and it will always come back around. I bag two newer ones for strong headwinds and seasoning.

Westside Discs Moonshine Destiny

My understable distance driver. I rely on this disc for tight fairways. When thrown on hyzer, it will flip to flat and go straight. On more open holes, I can throw this disc on slight hyzer out to the left, letting it flip up and turn before coming back to center.

Midrange

Westside Discs VIP Pine

All purpose midrange disc. Holds most of the lines I put it on. Reliable disc for up to 280ft.

Westside Discs VIP Gatekeeper

The wind and finish needed will determine which one I grab. I really like the feel of this mold. I can trust it to hold up when thrown with power.

Westside Discs VIP Anvil

The perfect utility midrange. Forehand upshots, backhand flights that need to get around an object, and of course a solid headwind. This disc can do it all.

Putters

Westside Discs BT Soft Shield

The Shield has replaced the Deputy as my putting putter. The BT Soft plastic has a great feel in the winter time. Even outside of C1, I can still get the same trusted flight for a putt as if it was 15 feet.

Dynamic Discs Classic Judge

My go-to throwing putter. I bag two, one new and one with the Iron Man stamp that turns slightly. Perfect off the tee disc for the woods.

Westside Discs BT Medium Harp

I rotate several Harps in different plastics. The BT Medium Harp is a staple of my bag. I’ve learned to trust this disc in a headwind off the tee due to its overstable flight.
