2013 United States Amateur Doubles Champion (with Discraft teammate Robert Leonard), 2014 Amateur Masters World Champion
Jackson Park, Hendersonville, NC. JP is the closest great championship level course to where I live. It has great design elements - elevation, wooded and open holes, and challenging lines to make birdies.
Ballou Park, Danville, VA. This is my "home" course, even though I don't live near there anymore. It's where I learned to play, love, and share the game, and I have logged almost 400 rounds there. I run an event there every Thanksgiving.

PUTT and APPROACH

Your go-to Driver?
The Z Force is my current go-to driver for two reasons: first, consistency in its flight and fade, and second, for its stability when I use it for forehand throws. This is the one disc I use equally for backhands and forehands. It fights wind well and has plenty of distance. Since 2014, when I turned professional and realized I should have more throws than just a backhand in my skills arsenal, I worked hard on consistent forehand form, release, and power; the result from throwing the Force enables me to feel great about all that work.
How about your main Mid-range?
I throw the Buzzz on about 75% of mostly straight to slight hyzer shots up to 300'. I love how straight this disc flies. Recently, I have been throwing very nice long anhyzer turnovers with the Buzzz. I couldn't imagine any success in disc golf without a Buzzz in my bag.
What about Your Putter?
My primary putter is an odd disc choice - the Z Glo FLX Challenger. I just love the way they feel in the hand. I only use these for putting; I prefer X Soft Challengers for tee shots and approaches. The Glo FLX plastic is tackier than people think, but it also forces me to putt as accurately as possible. The moral to this story is to find something that works for you.
