Beginner Tip

Start to practice with putters and midranges. Only move up to the higher speed drivers once you can control the slower discs. Attend your local weekly competitions and throw casual rounds with people with more experience on disc golf than you and ask tips.

Most Memorable Moment

Being a part of the group hosting a disc golf booth at Reaktori years 2012 to 2017 has been awesome. Reaktori is the biggest winter holiday youth event in Helsinki Area. Also arranging a Trilogy Challenge at our club’s home course was great.

Disc Golf Career Goals

To introduce as many people as possible to disc golf and to practice and compete more.

In The Bag

Drivers

Westside Discs Tournament World

I use Tournament World off the tee if there is any headwind. For me, the World is reliable and overstable enough.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Captain

In calm wind I mainly use the Captain as my distance driver.

Westside Discs VIP Sword

I use the VIP Sword off the tee in calm conditions. For me the VIP Sword is a straight flier with little fade at the end.

Westside Discs Tournament Fortress

I use the Fortress off the tee with backhand and forehand. Fortress is my main headwind driver.

Westside Discs Tournament Ahti

I use the Ahti off the tee with forehand and backhand. I also use the Ahti as an upshot disc because it is a really overstable and reliabe fairway driver.

Latitude 64 Opto Explorer

I use the Opto Explorer for straight shots that need to have reliable fade at the end.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Maverick

I carry the Lucid Maverick in my bag for straight shots. For me, the Maverick is a really controllable and versatile disc.

Westside Discs VIP Underworld

I carry one VIP Underworld in my bag. I use it for extreme hyzerflip to turnover shots.

Midrange

Westside Discs VIP Anvil

This Anvil is a reliable and really overstable midrange for windy conditions. I use the Anvil for forehand and backhand shots.

Westside Discs Tournament Warship

I always carry two Tournament Warships in my bag, one almost new one and one beaten in. For me, the Warship is a really versatile disc. I use the Warship for straight shots and turnover shots.

Putters

Westside Discs BT Medium Crown

My main putter. I always carry two only for putting.

Westside Discs BT Medium Crown

My main throwing putter. I always carry two, a beaten in one and a new one. New one for straight with reliable fade shots and beaten in one for hyzer to straight shots.

Westside Discs BT Soft Swan 2

I use the Swan 2 for turnover putter shots.

Westside Discs BT Soft Harp

I use the Harp mainly for forehand putter upshots.
