  1. What's your real-life non Ace job
    I am the hugely exciting Senior Customer Success Manager for a software security company, (pretty much technical account management in real job terms)

  2. Go to disc 
    If I could only throw one disc, it would be my Huk dyed 5x McBeth Buzzz #TeamBuzzz

  3. Hobbies outside of DG
    Any sport, I love to be active. Spending time with my amazing family, friends, boardgames and of course, the xbox takes up some spare time too

  4. Favourite Disc Golf course
    I'd say Quarry Park is up there for spot #1 right now. I also enjoy Longford Park and the challenge of Cotswolds view

  5. Greatest life achievement
    So many to pick from, but it would have to be when I caught a mole in my money box at the ripe age of 6 years old. Parents wouldn't let me keep it though

PDGA #137407

  1. What's your real-life non Ace job
    I am a Mechanical Engineer working in science and research sector. I have always loved designing and building things. I love a good challenge.

  2. Go to disc 
    Everyone knows this is my Champion Thunderbird any day of the week. It's been there since day one, and it will be in my bag for every round of disc golf I play

  3. Hobbies outside of DG
    I love football, that includes watching and playing. I also love gaming with my mates both online and board games! I also really enjoy DIY, and I've got many projects on the go

  4. Favourite Disc Golf course
    My favourite course has to be Longford Park Disc Golf Course (Manchester). The community there are awesome, the course is looked after and you can tell! The course challenges me in every way and every time I go there, different challenges pop up which excites me - Great job Manchester! 

  5. Greatest life achievement
    Receiving my honours in Engineering Design is my greatest life achievement. It is something I never thought I'd accomplish, I was over the moon when I did. Being a part of Ace Disc Golf is also right up there next to my degree. I love being part of this, being part of the community and doing it all with my best mates.

    PDGA #112073

    1. What's your real-life non Ace job
      I'm a finance manager for a local tech company and been working with numbers for 16 years now

    2. Go to disc 
      I'm cheating on this one.. I have three discs I couldn't do without, S-Line DDx, BigZ Buzzz and Z-Line Zone! Without those three, my game goes to pot

    3. Hobbies outside of DG
      Give me any ball and I'll wanna throw it, kick it, hit it with a peripheral, I'm all about that life!! Sports and Gaming with my dudes and dudettes fills up my hobby hours

    4. Favourite Disc Golf course
      Manchester Longford Park hands down.. It's not the most challenging but for my game right now it's a GREAT mix of execution, risk and reward. It looks like a course, it's well groomed and maintained and it has purposeful features to make it interesting!! It would be great to see more courses take note.

      Honorable mentions - Cotswolds, Mount Edgecombe (for dem views)

    5. Greatest life achievement
      This is a bit of a personal one - if you know, you know - My personal growth journey, it ain't been easy but damn am I proud of myself
