My favorite highlight was when I made the final nine at the 2018 Junior World Championships.
Another Highlight was my first Intermediate win in Shreveport. I had gotten last when I played the tournament the previous year, but I came back and won by several strokes the next year.
DISC GOLF GOALS
My goals are to grow the sport and to become the best player I can be. I love teaching others about the sport, and I have led several clinics in Louisiana. I was able to teach a lot of the campers at a church camp I work at, and I had a big part in implementing a course there. I love this sport, and I really want to be the best player that I can be. Not just skill wise though, I want to be the best representative of the sport, and also strive to be a good player as well.
DISC GOLF MOMENTS
A very memorable moment was making the final 9 at the 2018 Junior World Championships. I had played really well that week and at the end I was in a four way tie for fourth. We had a playoff on the first hole of Jones East, and I was really nervous because I hadn’t played the hole well in my previous round. None of the other players threw a really good shot so I knew my door was open. I threw a sidearm and ended up inside the circle and won the playoff. It was a great moment for me and one I will never forget.
A beginner should always work on putting first. It’s a key part of your game and if you attain a solid form, and get consistent muscle memory, then putting should come naturally. You should also strive to work on both types of drives. So many players learn backhand or sidearm but never both and this causes their game to be one sided. If you can build up a form for both then you can be a deadly weapon on the course.
“My Classic Guards are my number one disc. They have so much glide and such a straight flight. They make great putters and I have a big trust for them.”
“I love the Fuzion Defenders because they fly super well and I can really crank on them.”
“I love throwing an Opto Explorer. This is one of the straightest disc I’ve ever thrown, and I use it constantly in the woods.”
“My favorite mid is an Opto-X Compass. It’s so dependable and I can throw it straight and trust that it’ll fade slightly to the left.”
