How long have you been playing disc golf?
Since 1979-1980. My older brother took me along with him and his buddies and I was hooked!

Memorable Win:
2001 USDGC. I was obsessed with it. To be that excited and anxious to play and do well was amazing. I've never put that much focus and energy into one event. To see it all pay off was great.

Most memorable tournament:
My first Supertour win in '97 has always been 1st in my mind, but the world games in Akita, Japan is something I'll never forget. The whole experience was incredible. To be a part of a great event like that is amazing. And then to be 1st in the sport to experience this event is unbelievable. I hope it gets bigger so more players can go thru what I did in Japan.

My favorite events:
USDGC – Of Course. Course, Extras, Atmosphere, Money, all, top notch! With year after year improvement, it will be tough to have a better event.
The Worlds is always fun/challenging. The whole family shows up. Great time.
I love going out to Santa Cruz (De Laveaga) as well. As much for the off course activities as the great course.
Any Wisconsin event is always fun. We've got a lot of great courses and a lot of fun events and great staff and TDs.

Goals:
Short term: Keep on supporting myself on the road.
Long term: continue to improve on a daily/monthly basis. Keep a good attitude and give myself the best chance to do well and feel good about my game and myself. I've got another year or so before my girlfriend graduates, so we'll see how things go.

Advice:
Have fun and practice.
Don't practice at a course, find a field and explorer what you can and can't do. This will give you confidence and more choices when you're in a tough spot. It will also help you know your discs better. Try to play games to keep it fun.
Play different courses, tees. Play with different people. The more you see, the more you learn.
