About Randy

I was introduced to disc golf by a friend and his family in high school and was immediately hooked. I had a 5 year hiatus from playing while stationed mostly overseas, many hours from the nearest course, and began playing again in 2007. I stumbled upon the University of Minnesota club in 2013 and started playing serious golf, finally joining the PDGA and actually competing in 2014, taking 4th place at the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championship that year as part of the championship team for Minnesota. When not disc golfing, I enjoy hiking, kayaking, camping, and traveling.

Strongest part of your game? What needs work?

Approach shots are the strongest part of my game and my backhand driving technique needs the most work.

Best tip for a new player?

Put away all those overstable drivers and start by learning to be consistent throwing putters, mids, and fairway drivers with accuracy. Arm speed and the resulting need for faster and more stable drivers will come with experience.
