HOT FINISHES: My first win in Advanced: it came down to a playoff against one of my good friends. After matching each other shot for shot over 5 holes, his putt was a little too low and bounced off the rim of the basket, sealing the my first W.
Traveling to Mexico with Eagles Wings Disc Golf in 2012 to build a disc golf course at a kids' camp and teach them how to play disc golf.
Course Comments
Little Mulberry Park DGC
Auburn, GA
If a meticulously manicured wooded course with sodded fairways and challenging longer holes sounds appealing to you, play Little Mulberry. It plays a lot like a ball golf course, rewarding placement shots and well thought strategy.
North Georgia Canopy Tours DGC
Lula, GA
Rolling hills, the famous chicken shack hole, and zip line adventures make NGCT a must play if you're driving through the North Georgia region.
Nine on Top
Signal Mountain, TN
I love nine hole courses. Sometimes you just don't want to play a full 18. Nine On Top is a hidden gem overlooking Chattanooga on top of Signal Mountain.
Trophy Lakes DGC
Johns Island, SC
I've played very few courses that make throwing over water enjoyable. Trophy Lakes perfectly utilizes its wake board runs to make a challenging disc golf course. A must play if you're around Charleston, SC.
Mason County Park
Ludington, MI
Three words. Beauty. Beast. Goliath. Play all three.
In The Disc Golf Bag: Drivers
Disc Comments
ESP and Z Force
My Z Force is my go to distance driver in any type of head or cross wind. I can really lean in to it and trust it won't turn over. I keep a lighter ESP Force in the bag as well for anhyzer release flex shots.
ESP and Z Nuke
The Nuke is far and away the longest disc in my bag. It is crazy fast and has a reliable, straight light with a predictable fade. Again, I keep a lighter ESP version for hyzer flips and tail wind drives.
Z Thrasher Fewer shots are more fun to throw and watch than turnovers. The Thrasher has such a smooth understable flight without being too flippy or burning over. Slower arm speed players will add effortless distance to their drives with the Thrasher.
Z Surge SS Sometimes to have to disc down and slow things up a bit, especially in the woods. The Surge SS lets me do that without sacrificing distance. It's a great control driver for lacing tight lines.
Z Flick
The Flick is my go to utility disc for all sorts of thumbers, sidearms, and scramble shots.
Z Predator
The Predator is really reliable and super overstable fairway driver. I use it for sidearms, spike hyzers, and any backhand shot that I need to go left in a hurry.
Z Tracker
If you need precision off the tee, grab a Tracker. It can hold any line you put it on. It has a similar flight to the Buzzz, but a good bit longer.
If need a little more understability in the fairway or off the tee, I'm throwing the XL. It's easy to control; you can shape almost any shot with this disc.
In The Disc Golf Bag: Midrange
Disc Comments
Z Buzzz The Buzzz is the best midrange available. It's my favorite disc in my bag. It's dead straight. I can throw it hard and know that it will stay on the line I intended.
Z Hornet I prefer beadless midranges, so having an overstable disc to trust in the wind like the Hornet is great. It has great glide too, so shaping smooth S shots is a breeze.
In The Disc Golf Bag: Putt and Approach
Disc Comments
Jawbreaker and Z FLX Challenger The Jawbreaker Challenger is my main putter. I use an FLX model for a lot of short midrange shots. It's a very versatile disc at slower speeds and great for driving off the tee on shorter holes too.
