My name is Jon Younce and I have been a part of the disc golf team for a semester so far. I am from Granite Falls, North Carolina and I have played disc golf without any real understanding of the sport. I started playing disc golf again in the summer of 2014 with some friends, but the sport was really just for exercise. As my buddy started getting better, it pushed me to do the same. My interest in the sport began to grow and the knowledge along with terminology became more extensive. By playing multiple times a week, my scores began to drop slightly. When I went back to school, I heard there was a disc golf club team so I tried out in the spring semester and made the team. Extensive practices and drills made me a better player and enabled me to shoot scores below par. Shooting negative scores have been the highlight of my disc golfing career so far.
