New Team Member Announcement
With the 2022 season getting underway we’re delighted to announce our newest team member – Ben Bicknell!
Ben took a break from the sport in 2017 but has come back with a new focus since the pandemic. Since his return he has been working diligently on perfecting his technique and wants to share that knowledge with others. We’ve always been impressed by his professionalism and dedication to improvement. We look forward to helping him in his journey to the MPO division and achieving all his Disc Golf Goals.
We asked Ben a few questions:
Favourite Discs? Innova Wraith – My current go to distance driver but can double up as a great control driver if you have one that’s really flippy. Launch Cipher is also a go to disc for me for those 90 to 100m straight fairway shots.
Favourite Course? Quarry Park is my favourite course as it is where I discovered disc golf!
When did you start playing Disc Golf? I started playing disc golf around 2015 after a good friend introduced me to it and I was instantly hooked. I took a long break around 2017 and took the sport back up during lockdown in August 2020. I played a few tour events in 2021 and was amazed to see how much the sport had grown during my time away.
Disc Golf Goals? My goals for 2022 are to compete in MA1 and qualify for the British Champs again. Long term I just want to keep working on my game and form and become the best golfer that I can be. I am happy to represent DGUK as Richard has helped me personally over the years with many form questions and issues. DGUK do an amazing job of trying to grow the sport, introduce new people to the game and work with local councils and communities to get new courses in the ground.
You’ll see Ben all around the country competing in 2022, wish him luck!
