About Patrick:

I started playing disc golf when I was introduced by a friend in the summer of 2018, and quickly progressed to playing my first sanctioned tournaments by the end of the next year. Since I started, I have approached disc golf with a strong passion, putting any spare time I have towards practicing to become a better player. Returning to the site of my first event in late 2020, I won my first tournament in Intermediate, followed by winning my first Advanced B-Tier in 2021. Despite battling an elbow injury that limited my forehand, I collected my first A tier win in Advanced, and a podium finish in my first Junior Worlds in 2022. Being a part of Team Discmania became a dream of mine when I began watching Simon and Eagle on coverage, and started to fill my bag with the discs they were throwing. Now, moving into 2024, coming off of my first professional win and a second place at the 2023 Junior Worlds, I'm excited to represent Discmania as I continue pushing myself to be the best player I can be.

When I'm not competing, I strive to give back to my community as much as I receive from it. I wrote the software for and direct the Mad Mando Thursday Projection League which has become one of the largest leagues in the Madison area with almost 400 members. In 2023 I had my first experiences volunteering as a tournament official, and I continue to complete volunteer work with the Mad City Disc Golf Club. I also teach a youth disc golf summer camp and lessons for juniors to help others in the way many have helped me.

Outside of disc golf I play varsity tennis at Vel Phillips Memorial High School and lead the outreach program in the VPM STEM club bringing science exploration to local elementary schools.
