9 CAREER ACES


Started throwing summer of 2008 when economy crashed as I was working in construction and work came to a halt. I discovered the game for the first time as I had running at Quail Ridge Park in Wentzville, MO. Will mention I was first told about the game around 2002 but was a workaholic at the time. I got more invested in the game and after a few years got my dad to start throwing and thats when we both joined the PDGA (we have back to back numbers) and learned the whole tournament side of the sport. Since then I have gotten two brothers, my sister, my nephew and son all throwing and competing. I have now played 200+ courses in 20+ states and am always looking for new tournaments or areas to go. I play in between 30-45 tournaments a year between local and PDGA events and you will catch me anywhere in a 6 hour radius of my home. I’ve traveled to Arizona, California, Las Vegas & South Carolina just for disc golf. I have a passion for growing the sport and look forward to what the next generation brings to the sport. 


The thing I enjoy most about this sport is the people you meet along the way, I can honestly say I have family from coast to coast because of disc golf. The camaraderie & support between disc golfers is something I’ve never experienced in any other sport. Also enjoy meeting people of all types of backgrounds and building the friendships that I have established so far……THROW WITH CONFIDENCE!!
