How did you get into disc golf and how long have you been playing?
I’ve been playing for about 6 years. Originally, my dad heard about it from a coworker. He came home with a few discs and we went out to play a few times.
But it wasn’t until 8th grade that I really became interested in the sport. One of the guidance counselors at my school started a disc golf club that met once a week for about 2 hours. I figured I’d played the game a few times so I’d go check it out.
Mr. Sauer, the guidance counselor, was very good, and taught me a lot about form and strategy. Also, I was the only member of the club for most of that first year so I got a lot of one on one coaching, haha.
What is your dominant hand?
Definitely my right hand. I’ve tried throwing with my left, it doesn’t work very well…
Are you Backhand or forehand dominate?
I started off entirely backhand and was that way for about 3 years. Recently, I’ve developed a really solid forehand and I am pretty confident going with either shot if it’s the right move for the hole.
But if it’s a wide open hyzer shot where I can throw anything I want, I’ll probably go for the backhand just because it’s what I’ve been doing longer.
