DISC GOLF MOMENTS

1993 Eurotour MPO final Berlin Open: TV broadcast was not at all common those days. A gallery AND a tv crew that followed us in the lead card, to say I was nervous is a big understatement! That was my also first Eurotour win and an enjoyable moment.

BEGINNER TIPS

Use a handful of discs, let time and people around you guide as you progress. If you seek improvement, there are no short cuts but practice, practice. Have fun, this is what you do in your spare time, right?

Favorite discs

Zero Medium Spike

“Good grip with a solid feel in my hand. The burst pattern looks really good too!”

Opto Mace

“I play midrange discs a lot. The Mace is durable and dead straight for me.”

Opto Ballista Pro

“Who does not need a good driver for tight fairways, this is it. Only played shortly with this disc and we’re already good friends.”
