Beginner Tip

Learn to throw putters. Learn to love the short game.

Most Memorable Moment

Finnish Open 2013 was the first big international tournament in my career. It was a really good learning experience and a great opportunity to watch some of the world’s finest players in action.

Disc Golf Career Goals

I am hoping to participate in (and arrange) some of the finest events around Finland and represent Westside Discs to the best of my ability.

In The Bag

Drivers

Westside Discs VIP Hatchet

The most understable disc in my bag. I use it for hyzerflips, turnovers, standstill shots, and even short overhand shots.

Latitude 64 Opto Saint

I carry three Opto Saints. They are my go-to for most shots between 90-105m (290-340ft). Incredibly versatile disc with plenty of glide.

Latitude 64 Opto Saint Pro

Slightly more overstable than the Saint with similar feel in the hand. I use it for straight drives and hyzers in moderate headwind.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Felon

Reliably overstable fairway driver for hyzers, forehands, skip-shots, and forehand rollers.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Trespass

I usually carry three Trespasses. They are my go-to for max distance drives and long turnovers.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Enforcer

I also carry three Enforcers in different stages of wear from straight to very overstable. Good glide, reliable fade. I use them for long hyzers and max distance in the wind.

Midrange

Latitude 64 Opto Fuse

Fuse is used mostly for tunnel-shots, hyzerflips, and turnovers with no fade in the end.

Westside Discs VIP Warship

I carry 2-3 Warships at any given time. They are used for straight drives and approaches up to 95m (310ft). Easily controllable disc with amazing glide!

Dynamic Discs Lucid Verdict

Hyzers and forehands, straight drives, and approaches in a headwind.

Westside Discs VIP Anvil

Latest addition to the bag. Really overstable midrange for forehand approaches, hyzers, and trick-shots.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Judge

I have been putting with the Judge since 2013. I also use them for straight approaches and drives up to 70m (230ft).

Westside Discs BT Soft Shield

I always carry two Shields. They are my main throwing putters for almost any backhand shot under 75m (250ft). Reliably straight disc even in the wind with moderate fade in the end.

Westside Discs BT Soft Harp

The Harp is my go-to approach disc (especially in the wind) for short backhand and forehand shots. I love the BT Soft plastic because it sticks where it lands with no skip.

Westside Discs BT Soft Swan 1 Reborn

Swan 1 Reborn is my most understable utility disc for short hyzerflips and trick-shots in the woods.
