I am a flying disc sports athlete.  My career started in 1992 when I played my first round of disc golf.  In 1995 I won the PDGA Amateur World Championships.  In the late 1990s thru the mid-2000s, I won five professional division disc golf world championships as well as the Gold Medal for flying disc at the 2001 World Games, and hundreds of other disc golf tournaments. In 2008 I was inducted into the PDGA Hall of Fame.  In 2014, I started training for the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) Overall event. This is the heptathlon of flying disc sports, incorporating seven different unique events. Five of the events are individual (disc golf, distance, accuracy, discathon, and self caught flight) and two are pairs events (double disc court and freestyle). In the two years since embarking on this endeavor, I have won both of the overall world championship titles.  My specific focus for 2015 was Double Disc Court (DDC).  My partner and I won the DDC World Championship title in 2015.  My new focus for 2016 is Freestyle.  I will be competing in my first Freestyle Players Association World Championships in August of 2016.
