WHY DISC GOLF? Once started – you can‘t stop. Best sport for me – nature, family, friends, trips, and ... magic of disc flight!

ADVICE: Play one shot at the time. Thinking of 5 shots ahead or 10 shots backwards can‘t make you score better. And don‘t blame yourself for mistakes (you‘ll make some anyway). Better say something possitive about each shot right after it - even if you hit the first tree! And yes – make your game plan for the course and stick to it!

GOALS FOR SEASON 2024: Further grow the sport in Lithuania and beyond. In competitions – to be competitive to the best players in each tournament.

CAREER ACHIEVEMENTS: Lithuanian Cup Winner (MPO - 2018)

WHY DISC GOLF? At the beginning disc golf was more like a fun activity for leisure time with friends. But already at the first year of play desire to improve my game has started growing, and that made me constantly practice. That's what I have been doing for past 10 years! Disc golf community in Lithuania is growing every year, more and more new players come in. That also means growing competition. If you want to stay competitive, you need to improve physically and mentally. And that's what drives me :)

ADVICE: I recently realised that any participant in competition is simply a participant, an acquaintance, a friend. He is not my enemy or competitor. My biggest competitor is myself. So my advice for every player is to focus to yourself, improve your skills, learn from your own mistakes and try to beat best version of yourself! That's the only way to reach the "ceiling" in an individual sport... And later you can break through it :)

GOALS FOR SEASON 2024: I've got few goals: My biggest focus in year 2024 will be Lithuanian Disc Golf Championships. And also to participate in maximal number of Innova Baltic Tour and Lithuanian disc golf cup competitions.

WHY DISC GOLF? Disc golf gives you so much freedom. Both physical and decisional. You are in charge and you decide to take risks or to play smart and safe.

Also, it is the best sport for you if you want to spend time in nature with your friends and loved ones.

ADVICE: Set reasonable and reachable goals for yourself. Also, put in the time and train separate parts of your game, do not play rounds only. That way you‘ll see some results way faster.

GOALS FOR SEASON 2024: I want to be more level-headed, more consistent and try to play some beautiful disc golf that I'd be able to enjoy. Disc golf should always be about beautiful form, respect and etiquette and I try to be the example of that.
