I first heard about disc golf a little over 10 years ago. My older brother and I grew up playing what we called frisbee golf by throwing an Aerobie Pro around a series of soccer fields and moving the goals to make up different holes etc. Then one night he rang me and just said “Frisbee Golf is real! I’ve just seen some videos on YouTube. It’s an actual sport.” I got straight on my PC, found a website that sold a bag with a selection of approximately 20 discs and ordered us both a set. Since then I’ve played events up and down the East Coast of Australia, been part of various disc golf committee’s and generally help out at events and community activities as much as my free time allows.

Favourite Courses

My favourite course would have to be the Queensland Champs layout at Alexander Clark Park in Logan City, as it is the right mix of tight wooded fairways and big open drives that suits my game and I like to play. I also love the North Byron Parklands course in Byron Bay and of course the Poimena Reserve course in Hobart, Tasmania.

Career Highlights

My biggest career highlight would definitely be winning the 2018 Queensland Championships. But, my favourite highlight would be winning my first MPO event in 2013, the Gold Coast Disc Golf Classic.

2017 & 2018 Logan City Open MPO 1st.

2017 Gold Coast Classic MPO 2nd.

2017 Queensland Tour MPO 1st.

Being the back to back and reigning MPO Doubles Champs with team mate and best friend Rhys Kruger.


I’m currently carrying 3 Taipans. 1 Ultra that is beating in nicely as my go to headwind driver, another Ultra that is my go to sidearm driver and lastly a Premium as my meathook backhand and sidearm.
