What is Disc Golf for me?
A lot more than just a hobby: disc golf is involved in my everyday life so strongly that I guess you could say it’s a way of life.

Most memorable Disc Golf moment?
Choosing just one is almost impossible, but I would have to say my first trip to Järva (Sweden) was quite an experience! I also rank the very first competition I organized pretty high on this list.

Why Natural Born Disc Golfer?
The atmosphere within the sport is simply amazing and I want to do my share on keeping it up and spreading the “disc golf spirit”, the positivity and the supportiveness it represents. For me growing the sport is also important – I enjoy guiding beginners, it is always rewarding to see how excited people can get when they realize they can actually play! When I first started playing, everybody was so nice and I really felt welcome despite my skills. I would like to be able to offer a similar experience to as many newcomers as possible.
