What does your everyday disc golf routine look like?
I try to practice putting on my deck each day. During spring/summer I’ll sneak in a practice round after work once or twice a week. I do the bulk of my playing on the weekends with tournaments and practice rounds throughout the year.Tell us about your favorite Kastaplast disc?
This is a tough one! I don’t think I could choose between the K1 Falk and the K3 Berg. I use my K1 Falk for so many tee shots in the woods. I predominantly throw forehands and I love the understability of the Falk for hyzer flips. The K3 Berg is my go to disc for 95% of approach shots. My K3 Berg flys reliably straight and has a soft finish.
What is your best disc golf memory?
Playing on the final round lead card with Paul McBeth and Barry Schultz at the Battle for Bedford in July 2020. The round was filmed by Foundation Disc Golf and it was my first filmed round. It was such a great learning experience for a relatively new player like myself. I got so many great tips from Paul and Barry and it was a very enjoyable round.
Name one of your odd talents, or, what you like to do when not throwing plastic
Before playing disc golf I played Ultimate Frisbee professionally in New York City for five years. When I’m not throwing plastic I really like to play board games with friends. I own over 100 board games!
