10 Questions: Simon Lizotte

Team Discmania Member, Simon Lizotte answer 10 Questions for Average Disc Golf.

1. How did you get started playing disc golf?
My Dad introduced me to disc golf when I was about two years old. So I don’t really remember how I got into it. I’ve just been playing it all my life and I still love it more than anything.

2. What were your very first discs?
My very first disc was a XD by Innova. It’s still one of the greatest up shot putters in my opinion. It’s really key to start off with putters only. Then work yourself up to midrange and drivers.

3. Did you always crush discs from the beginning?
I started throwing farther than most adults when I was about 13. It was just a matter of growing to be physically able to throw farther. I get a lot of messages from kids that want to know how to throw farther and all I can answer is “wait 4 years”.

4. How many aces do you have in your career?
I don’t know how many practice aces I have. Probably 100+. I haven’t had too many aces in tournaments though. I’d guess around 5 or 6. My first tournament ace is still one of the greatest moments of me life.

5. Should a new player learn to back hand or sidearm first?
I’d recommend learning back hand first. Back hand is primarily used by all top pros. It’s just the most effective way to throw a disc.

6. What is your absolute go to disc currently in your bag?
My Putter the P2. Anywhere within 350 feet I’d most likely chose a P2. Such a great putt and approach disc.

7. What piece of advice would you give the average player who wants to improve their game?
Film yourself. Watch it. Compare it. Practice.

8. If you were not playing disc golf, what would you be doing for a career?
I’m not too sure about that. I’d probably be studying something in university. Maybe become a sports or music teacher.

9. What trick shots can we look forward to in 2016?
That’s going to be a surprise to all of us!

10. WHEN you win your first world title, which disc would you want to be your signature disc?
Probably the P2. It kind of depends on what disc is fresh at that point!
