2008 Year In Review: Remembering My Best Season Yet

What a year! 2008 has gone down as my most successful disc golf season to date. I played in 28 PDGA Tournaments with 20 top 5's and 9 wins (32% Winning Percentage), including 2 National Tour Wins at The Greater Tulsa Open and The Vibram Open and 5 Supertour Wins including an A-Tier Trifecta to finish off the year down South at the Corpus Christi Open, Oklahoma Open and Veterans Park Open. I kept my cash streak alive cashing in every tournament I played in 2008.

I have played more tournaments in one full season (46 tournaments in 2002), but this year I traveled more tour miles than any other year, accruing 80,000+ travel miles throughout the 2008 disc golf season (trust me it took some time to add up all of those miles). The distance I traveled is comparable to circling the planet 3.2 times with an average of 216 miles a day for the entire year. And that statistic doesn't even take into account all the miles I walked on the golf course week in and week out. I calculated that I flew 60K by plane including some huge trips to Japanese and European Majors. The other 20K consisted of ground miles that I collected from driving the Tioga back and forth across the country including multiple trips with various friends to many tournaments throughout the year. I have never heard of travel miles throughout a disc golf season that compare to those numbers, please let me know if you have ever heard of anything comparable. For my efforts I led the PDGA Tour Points for the 2008 season.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just don't know how you do it all, I knew that you were one of the busiest pros on tour but those are some insane numbers, rock stars on world tours putt in less time and effort then you and yet you never seem to get burnt out. Your always productive and seem to be on top of your game, I always hear how you take the time to sign autographs and talk to your fans as well as interviews (I have to be honest I don't think I could be that nice if I had to choose between sleep or an interview). Not to mention that you are always up to date on your social sites and still some how find the time for family and friends. That's just amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! All kidding aside you should be an adviser for Franklyn Covey, I think you could teach them a thing or two about time management seminars!
