Telemark Resort, Cable, WI edges out Highland Ski, Bloomington, MN. They are both on ski resorts but Cable is more challenging and longer.

Renny Gold, Charlotte, NC. It is not one of my favorite courses but out of the 148 courses I have played but without a doubt it is definately the toughest.

Favorite Disc Golf Story:
1.) I traveled from NC to Michigan for the USADGC. I did not want to go that bad because I wanted to play an NC event the same week for my first open event. My ex-girlfriend talked me into going because I would never have this chance again. So I rented a car, drove 14 hours, and stayed at a wonderfull place, the Lacey's, with other disc golfers which also included Chase, Mike, and Chad. It was the best disc golf experience in my life and winning that event was amazing.


2.) Winning the Super Tour (A-Tier) DGTV Open in Cable Wisonsin. Recent Headlines

3.) Going on tour in 2008 for 2 months. In 2010 I want to travel full time. I still enjoy traveling on the weekends with friends but I want to see what it is like to be away from home for a summer and attempt to earn a living playing disc golf.
