Calvin Heimburg, Chris Dickerson. Both players are humble, down to earth and good people.
What is your favorite type of shot to throw?
Full power hyzer!
Which of your disc golf achievements are you most proud of?
I was leading an A tier for 3 rounds at the South Florida Open. After only playing for my 2nd year. I was able to beat Eagle Mcmahon, Zach Melton, Calvin Heimburg but coming up just short of BIG Jeremy Koling

which would they be?
