About Richard

I was born in England, but sorry no cool accent. I have a wonderful wife and son and 2 dogs. I love to be outdoors, if i'm not playing disc golf I can guarantee you I am fishing.

Favorite DG memory

Trying to qualify for USDGC in 2013, I was in the performance flight already so I decided to try and qualify for the Open Flight. I played well all the way until the dreaded island hole I made double circle 7 and then proceeded to miss the cut by 1 stroke. Even though it was upsetting at the time I can look back on it now and remember the whole thing as a great learning experience.

Why disc golf?

I have been playing disc golf competitively for the past 6 years now. I enjoy disc golf for the competition and the people, I have met so many great people traveling around playing disc golf. My favorite part about disc golf is being able to share it with my family, my wife plays competitively and my son also enjoys playing its a great opportunity for us to get out and enjoy time together playing a sport we love.
