My big news for 2018 is picking up a sponsor for the year. Savage Ultimate Apparel has added me to the Savage Squad for 2018, they make some fine disc golf and Ultimate gear, use SQUADFAN453 to get 15 % off your order!
A few years ago a friend of mine finally convinced me to come play disc golf. I figured I might be o.k. at this disc golf thing since I was pretty good with a frisbee, so I bought a set of starter discs and headed out to the course. What I stepped into that day is pretty amazing. Disc Golf puts together a lot of the things I love. I enjoy being outside, being active, spending a lot of time laughing with my friends and family. It’s as competitive as you choose to make it. Play for fun, play for bragging rights, play to beat your personal best, play to win a tournament – all excellent reasons to get out and play.
A few years have gone by and I’m more engaged than I ever expected. Disc golfing casually with friends turned into joining a league, then two leagues, then playing in a league tournament and finally playing in multiple tournaments in a season with goal of playing in the Amateur World Championships. I’ve learned so much about the sport, the types of events, the variety of courses, and a whole lot about the people who play the game and it’s history. I figured I should take some notes, take some pictures and document some of this journey, it’s been awesome so far!
