My father got me into the sport when I was very young, and we would go to baseball tournaments and play courses all across the Midwest between games.

I joined the local leagues in Sioux Falls South Dakota in high school and I was hooked. I ended up going on a mini tour in 2016 and became sponsored by Innova Champion Discs whom I’m still sponsored by to this day.

I also enjoy giving lessons and teaching the sport that I am passionate about. Today, my wife and I travel the United States trying to play as many tournaments as we can.

My name is Daniel Polk. I am from the San Carlos Apache, Quechan, and Diné nations. My wife is Dyani White Hawk Polk and we have two daughters, Nina and Tusweca. I have a BS degree in Elementary Education from Haskell Indian Nations University. After my collegiate basketball career at HINU, I was introduced to the sport of disc golf in the spring of 2005. I was hooked from the very first throw I watched. My mentor, Henry Pohocsucut, threw over a football field length and I just couldn’t believe a disc fly that far. I remember thinking, “I want to do that!” After 10 years of playing disc golf, I was given the opportunity to represent a few different companies. Today, I am sponsored by Prodigy Disc, Airborn Disc Golf, Tanka Bar, and Blue Ribbon Pines.

Notable Titles/Feats:
First tournament played, won Intermediate, Centennial Park Open
First A-Tier Win- CO States Adv
First Pro Win- Ale Asylum Open
