What does your everyday disc golf routine look like?

If I have the time, I’ll fill up my bag with a certain type of disc (putters, midranges etc.) and head out to the soccer field nearest to me. I’ll practice hitting lines, angles and so on. Or I’ll grab my bag and head up to my home course for a friendly game. We like to play doubles, so we’ll go out hunting birdies.

 

Tell us about your favorite Kastaplast disc

My favourite mold is Reko. I carry 5 of them in my bag. I have an overstable K1 Glow Reko for drives and forehands, a straight K1 Reko for upshots, a slightly beat in K3 for turnover shots and a really beat in one for bounce shots, extreme anhyzers or long putts. With the different types of plastic, I feel that I have all my putter needs satisfied with the Reko. My favorites are my main putters, a pair of K1 Rekos, they fit my putting style perfectly. While a bit more overstable in the air than the K3 Rekos, they have a softer fade, thus minimizing the risk for roll outs.

 

What is your best disc golf memory?

I guess the final 9 in Järva Open 2015. I was on the lead card, but I couldn’t keep pace on the front nine. But then I turned it around and birdied almost every hole on the home stretch to reach a play off. My heart was jumping, but I managed to park the first play off hole in front of a sizable gallery and claim the victory. My biggest one to date.

 

Name one of your odd talents, or, what you like to do when not throwing plastic

Well, if your band is in town, and one of the members get sick the night before the show, give me a call. That is, if they play the guitar, the bass or the drums. If your singer gets sick, you’re probably better off without me. :)
