What does your everyday disc golf routine look like?
I like to incorporate some kind of disc golf practice into every single day, seeing as to how I love it so much, it never feels gruelling or like a chore. At least 4 times per week I go to the oval for field work taking a wide range of discs from my fastest drivers down to my Berg. I figure there is no shot that is wasted practice, the more things I try, the more likely I am to be familiar with whatever my crazy lie is on the disc golf course. I usually putt for 20-30 minutes in my garage 4-5 times per week, sometimes more. I like to get to an actual course at least once per week.
Tell us about your favorite Kastaplast disc.
K1 Kaxe Z without a doubt, not just favorite Kastaplast disc, but favorite disc of all time, and it has quickly taken that spot. It does exactly what I tell it to (follow its line) to the very end with a trusty, but subtle fade. The glide one this disc is ridiculous and I can’t believe how far I can throw a speed 6 disc. If you don’t have one, you are missing out!!!
What is your best disc golf memory?
Playing the disc golf course on Beech Mountain, North Carolina. The 18 hole course was built down a ski slope in which you had to ride the lift to the top of the mountain 3 times to play the 18 holes. There is nothing quite like throwing a disc over 1000ft! Unfortunately this course is no longer in existence, but I will never forget that round.
Name one of your odd talents, or, what you like to do when not throwing plastic?
With my time away from disc golf, I love spending time with my wife, Katie, and our pup, Oswald. I enjoy cooking and eating of course, and I also enjoy playing Piano. It seems I pretty much like anything where my hands are my tools.
