I started playing disc golf as a little dude way back in 1996. Thanks Dad! My father, Jim Conrad, was introduced to disc golf around that time from a friend in Colorado Springs (TJ Lawrence). He caught the disc golf bug like so many of us have and started taking me and my mom out to the course right away.

Approximately 20 years later (2016) I went out on tour for the first time! Another 5 years down the road and I can't even imagine my life without disc golf. This path has taken me all over the United States and even spurred my first 2 trips overseas. Beyond that it has introduced me to some of the best friends I could ever hope for.


My dad still plays all the time too and him and my mom actually have a full 18 hole private course near Blacksburg, VA - check out Dire Wolf DGC if you are in the area! Both my parents have been my biggest supporters and fans from the start and I'm very thankful for them.
