How Long Have You Played Disc Golf?

I've been playing for 3 years now. One of my really good friends invited me to play this weird sport where you throw Frisbees into a basket. I went out my first time and had a blast.

Most Memorable Win?

Camden Doubles 2005 was the first tournament my friend (partner) Josh Doeble and I had ever played in. We had a lot of fun and ended up winning. We got these sweet little 1st place trophies that to this day still sits on my desk at work.

Most Memorable Tournament?

Probably winning the 2007 Iowa State Championship last year. It was a huge win for me and really set me on my way to turning Pro.

My Favorite Course?

My favorite course is by far Peninsula Park in Iowa City, IA.  It’s long, wooded, has elevation.  Every hole gives you that exciting feeling of “this is going to be a fun shot.”
  

My Disc Golf Goals?

Short term-  To win the Advanced division at West Lake and to win three tournaments this year and cash at every tourney I enter.  I would like to have a 950 rating by the end of the year.
Long Term -  Be able to win an NT as a pro and be sponsored by a disc company that allows me to play disc golf for a living.  Also, I would like to be able to throw a disc 500ft.

Advice For Other Disc Golfers?

No matter how far you can drive it will never matter unless you can make the putt.  Ask questions and learn course management.  I see to many new players throwing the wrong shot in certain situations and leaving themselves a tougher shot than before.  Don’t try to make every approach shot, try to put it close enough to have a drop in putt.

Anything Else?

My favorite disc golf story:  Summer of 2005 three months after I started playing, my friends and I were at Camden in Milan, IL.  I couldn’t even throw backhand yet and threw all thumbers.  I walked up to hole 11 and threw a thumber with a Monster.  I Heard nothing but chains.  I sprinted up the hill to find my first ace, and I didn’t even get to see it go in!
