One of the most memorable moments of my career would have to be my first tournament playing in FPO. It was a local tournament in Spokane, WA. My drives were going well but the creeping nerves made my first short game near impossible, after 5 holes I was 7 over par. The next hole, I tried to remain calm. It wasn’t an extraordinary throw by any means, but it was the right throw. I traced the flight in disbelief as it hyzered into the center chains of the basket. My first tournament ace in my first pro tournament. I’ll never forget it.
I think a better question would be what don’t I like about discgolf? That would be a much shorter list. When I first started playing I wasn’t too interested in the game, I just loved being out on the course, paving a lunch, grabbing some discs and, hiking in the orders for a few rounds on beautiful day. The game has changed a lot for me in the years that one been playing but, time and time again a perfect drive or putt brings you back to the simple joys of disc golf and, those moments inspire passion and enthusiasm. I can’t say it’s the only reason bit it’s a big part of what keeps me playing, rain or shine.
