From: Christchurch, New Zealand
Joined Team Discmania: 2023
Sebastian began playing disc golf in 2019 casually with friends and from the first day was hooked. It wasn’t long before he started playing competitively in tournaments around New Zealand; starting in juniors, moving to MA1, and now competing in MPO after 3 short years.
Being a homeschool student is the silver lining which allows him the flexibility of practice-putting in the backyard during breaks or heading out to play when he has finished early. When he’s not playing, dreaming about, or teaching others how to play disc golf, Sebastian can be found trying to stay focused on grammatical correctness when writing in third person and other such riveting subjects of a 12th grade student.
In his leisure time, Sebastian enjoys hanging out with his friends, reading, watching disc golf on YouTube, and listening to music. Being a kids’ camp leader during school holidays is a welcome challenge and youth group and church round out his time. To help fund his passion for disc golf he mows lawns and has a part time job electroplating.
The great community, the opportunity to compete, flinging plastic—who doesn’t love that feeling?!—and collecting discs are all reasons Sebastian loves the sport and why he aspires to become a professional disc golfer. Having the privilege of being a Discmania Pro team member is a big step towards that goal and he can’t wait for what the future holds!
