Welcome Garrett. Why did you take a break from the disc golf scene?
– Thanks. As people may and may not know how the tour can be a daily and weekly struggle with trying to compete and make ends meet it gets a little stressful. Another reason was to be home with my family. Me and my sister live together and I'm currently help with raising my niece Makayla. My sister's husband passed away 2 years ago due to a motorcycle accident. I love disc golf but my family means everything to me. Like they say family comes first, Garret says.
What made you decide to partner up with Latitude 64?
– I've heard really good things about Latitude 64 by friends and other competitors I compete with and also while not playing for anyone I got to try out some discs that I never got to use before. I felt quite comfortable with the discs I have tried out and fits my golf game well. I look forward to making more time to try out all the other discs to see what else I can fit into my repertoire.
Tell us a little about your favorite discs so far?
– So far I like the Macana for putting the Fuse and the Mace for midranges and for drivers I am hooked on the Enforcer, the World and the Saint. Still continuing to try out new molds. The discs hold up very well to wear and tear, the discs fly very true and I like the fact that they come in a variety of plastics to make the comfort level superb to any player.
What is your next tournament?
– The next tournament I will be attending is the USDGC if I can get the time off of work. I will have to qualify but should be pretty cool to come out of the gates using Latitude 64 to qualify.
Thoughts on next season?
– As far as thoughts go for next year I'm playing it by ear. Between work and family. I do know if I do not go on tour I will play all the local tournaments and hit a couple of the big tournaments as well, Garret says.
We wish all the best to Garrett and his family. And remember to keep an eye out for "Double G" at the USDGC this year.
