Beginner Tip

Disc selection is crucial. Learning the intended flight path of each disc will help you choose the right disc for each shot. Start with lower speed drivers and practice. As you gain strength and speed, then move to higher speeds. Always practice. There is a difference between practice and casual rounds. Most importantly, have fun and go with friends. You can learn from watching other people’s throwing methods. Copy them and try out different ways to throw.

Most Memorable Moment

In June 2006, I played an A-Tier tournament, the Pittsburgh Flying Disc Open, in the MA1 division. I won by 4 strokes even after losing my main putter just before going into the final round. This win built confidence and inspired me to move into the Open division later that year.
