Bjortomt started playing disc golf (folf) in 1998 and ran his first tournament as tournament director in 2004. He helped co-found the Garden City Flyers Disc Golf Club in 2005. He became the Montana State PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) coordinator in 2006, a title he still holds. He is an Innova Sponsored Ambassador for disc golf, the biggest company in the sport, and was ranked in the top 200 nationally from 2012 to 2015.
