How long have you been playing disc golf?

Approaching 4 years now!

What are five discs you ALWAYS have in your bag?

I've always got my Berg, Ringer, Koi, Interceptor and Binx. I seem to have a passion for approach discs and their versatility.

What is your favorite disc golf course you've ever played?

My decision this year has changed from Splendour in the Basket to the Pine Rivers Open layout. It utilises the parks extra space to create a beautiful 18 hole course. The shots required are quite versatile, giving advantage to players with a more rounded game. This is one of the courses I began playing at more frequently and so it's great to see it's normal layout get a face lift and potentially become permanent in the future!

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

Outside of disc golf I also love indoor soccer, traveling and video games. My favourite countries for traveling, so far, have been Norway, Iceland, Scotland, Egypt and Thailand.

Who is your favorite disc golfer and why?

I'm still a huge fan of Kristin Tattar after having watched her play in America again at the beginning of 2022. The smoothness in her form is always great to watch in coverage and she seems to have a mental game that I really aspire to reach.

Where do you see yourself as a disc golfer in 5 years?

I am continuing on the road to improvement in the hopes that I can one day be invited to the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships on merit alone. I hit a road block last year when I severely injured my right ankle and had to take a few months off, but I've been steadily improving since then and hope to keep the improvements coming.

Anything else you want the world to know about you?
My love for alternative discs and smaller disc golf manufacturers continues on so please keep recommending me discs to try out! @sluke_dg is my Instagram handle to reach out to or to keep an eye on how I'm doing :)
