UPDG Team Player - Chandler Fry

PICK 9 Interview

Each UPDG Team Player picks 9 questions to answer from a much larger list.

  1. What was the best vacation you ever took and why?

    I have always loved travelling to Alaska. I used to go up north every year to visit my Aunt and Uncle in Anchorage. After discovering disc golf, I started planning my trips up there during tournaments.

  1. What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?

    My pup Ollie always makes my day a little brighter. He is a little guy, only 17 pounds, but he makes up for it with big snuggles.

  2. What activity instantly calms you?

    Playing disc golf at Evergreen State College DGC in Olympia, WA. It’s situated in the rainforests of the PNW, and the mixture of fresh air, evergreen trees, and flying frisbees makes it alright.

  3. What would be the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery?

    Pay off any debt my family has generated. Then maybe buy a Winnebago Revel Campervan or something😊

  1. Is there one job you’d never ever do?

    I worked in the restaurant industry once, and I will never do it again. The stress generated from ornery customers, poor management and low pay was too much for me.

  2. What’s your favorite thing about your current job?

    One of the best parts of my job as a touring professional is the travel. I love meeting new people and seeing new places. I drove nearly 30,000 miles during the 2021 disc golf season, and although the driving can at times be arduous, the destination is always worth it.

  3. Do you sing in the shower?

    Of course! Give me some Peter Gabriel, or the A Goofy Movie soundtrack, and I’ll start belting away!

  1. If you could own a mythical creature, which one would you pick?

    Probably a dragon. The flying ability and fire-breathing all seem like pretty valuable assets to have in a pet. If not a dragon, probably a kraken.

  2. What’s the career highlight you’re most proud of?

    Winning the 2021 CCR Open in Michigan this past season was a big moment for me. It proved that I deserved to be out there battling with the best. Its tough to get a win these days, and getting the W at an A tier, with some fellow touring professionals present, was validating.
