Silver Sponsorship — Austin, TX
My name is Robert McCall. I started playing disc golf about 5 years ago with some friends in Abilene, TX. I had seen the game and had played a couple of times when I was younger, so I thought I'd teach them a thing or two. Well, I got crushed, but I loved the game and I loved the flight of a disc. I was hooked. I started playing as often as possible in minis and small club events. In 2010, I played my first tournament. I entered Advanced and played terribly, but loved the experience. I moved up to Open later that year and the rest is history. I moved to Austin in 2012 and love the local disc golf scene here, along with several championship caliber courses within a small area. It's the place to be for disc golf in Texas.
I've had a few open wins, but more than that, I've enjoyed getting to play with some of the best players in the world in competition. I love competing and pushing myself to improve, especially on the mental aspect of disc golf. I have met all sorts of people while traveling and really enjoy being on the road for tournament play.
In my opinion, the First Run Sirius Omegas are the best throwing putters ever made. Period. They're like a throwing primer - it goes where you throw it. Throw them flat, they'll go straight and finish flat. They'll hold the slightest hyzer or anhyzer from release to finish. I also love the Orion LF. Slightly overstable out of the box, but super straight and consistent. I can count on it to hold whatever line I need. If you haven't thrown a Sirius Scorpius, you have to give one a shot. Dependably stable, even into the wind. It holds a narrow flight path and bombs. Check one out - you'll be glad you did.
When I'm playing in Austin, Roy G. Guerrero is my favorite course to play. It's difficult, but fair. Par 61 in a mostly shaded park that will make you forget you're in Texas. Other favorites include Harry Myers in Rockwall, TX, Sipapu Ski Resort in Vadito, NM (yeah, it plays up and down ski slopes), and East Metro Park in Manor, TX. Thanks to Hyzer Bomb Disc Golf and Millennium for the opportunity to throw their plastic!
