Playing Division: MPO

Current Rating: 986

Sponsor: Kastaplast

Predominant throw: Right Hand Backhand

Q: What are your strengths as a player?

A: My backhand drive is my strength. I can throw 130m with good control in most weather conditions which allows me plenty of chances to make birdies.

Q: What is your best or favourite competition result to date?

A: My first and highest rated tournament was the 2012 Jesmond Jam when I shot a 1012 rated tournament to take out the MPO division by 4 shots. My favorite and most recent tournament was again the Jesmond Jam. This time after throwing Kastaplast for only 3 weeks I was able to beat a good friend and fierce competitor Jonathan “JJ” Jonas in a play off to win in a nail-biting finish.

Q: What are your disc golfing ambitions and plans for the next two or three years?

A: My biggest goal is to win the Australian Disc Golf Championships. I figure my best chance is to do this in the next few years as the number of disc golfers and talent in Australia seems to be exploding! Having a player rating of 1000 would also be pretty cool.

Q: Can you share a top form tip or something that substantially helped you improve your play.

A: Form is not a big focus of mine. I think its far more important to just get out and throw bucket loads. If you throw hard in the field and practice plenty of putts, then whatever form you develop, you will gain confidence with it and will be able to execute your shots in tournaments.

Q: What top pro player do you look up to and why?

A: I am definitely team McBeth. He has the full range of shots and always plays his best in the critical moments. Looking forward to watching Paul win his 6th World Championships very shortly!

Q: What is your favorite disc in your bag right now and what do you use it for?

A: The Rask for sure! It’s a stable 14 speed distance driver that even comes with a bonus inner rim. It cuts through the air like nothing else and gives me the confidence to rip it down even the narrowest of fairways.

Cheers Chilly – Can’t wait to see you tear it up in Croatia!

Playing Division – MPO

Current Rating – 960

Sponsors – Taki Sak, DC Discs, Bergs Bags

Predominant throw – Lefty, both wings

Q: How long have you been playing, and how did you get introduced to the sport?

A: I stumbled across the sport back in 2009 at Fehlberg Park Yeronga. I was watching my brother play a game of cricket across the road and during the innings break went for a walk in the neighboring park. Little did I know that Bruce McNaughton, Tim Marchbank, and a few others were playing their weekly round. I can still remember the exact place I was standing when I saw these guys crushing discs on the old Hole 8. It was too intriguing to simply ignore, and I guess the rest is history!

Q: What are your strengths as a player?

A: I’d say I have a relatively consistent game with an ability to throw confidently off both wings. My forehand is certainly something I lean on and I think many of the locals would acknowledge it’s a handy weapon. The game is a lot easier when you can trust your forehand and backhand stances!

Q: What is your best or favorite competition result to date?

A: Winning the RiverCity Ruckus in 2021 at Cadogan Park meant a lot. It was a course that I’d put a lot of effort into designing and delivering with the Brisbane City Council. To win the inaugural tourney on that course, as well as throwing an ace, was very satisfying indeed.

Q: What are your disc golfing ambitions and plans for the next two or three years?

A: Good question, I haven’t really planned anything beyond Croatia. Generally, I’d like to see my game continue to improve, along with supporting the growth of the sport in SEQ.

Q: Can you share a practice tip or something you learned that substantially helped you improve your play.

A: Find a style and strategy that suits your body and mind (disc golf challenges both). In doing so you’re more likely to be confident, stay calm, throw better throws, and resultantly have more fun (which should always be the aim!).

Q: What top pro player do you look up to and why?

A: I have a soft spot for Gregg Barsby who I was lucky enough to play with during the Aussie Open ’17. He’s a super friendly and positive guy both on and off the course, with a throwing style somewhat similar to mine. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him win the 2018 Worlds. I guess I might be classed as a Barsbarian!

Q: What is your favorite disc in your bag right now and what do you use it for?

A: I’m quite well known for throwing the Innova Thunderbird. I’ve got a few of them in my bag in different plastics and stages of wear. It’s such a versatile disc that quickly became a workhorse for me. Where possible, I throw a Thunderbird. I love this disc because I can throw it for both forehands and backhands with confidence.
