Most importantly, have fun! Don’t compare yourself to others. Everyone learns differently and at different speeds. Lightweight discs make for great beginner drivers but it’s most important to feel good with midranges before stepping up to drivers.
Most Memorable Moment
So many to choose from but every time I see a new player make that first big putt or that soaring flat drive, their face when they look back at you. It’s amazing. That and the Ace I got last winter at Trinity Links in Lockport Illinois with 5 of of my disc golf gals. 314 ft with my Westside Longbowman!
Disc Golf Goals
Continue to help my community by growing the sport, building courses and coaching new players. I plan on starting a highschool club team and my ratings goal is +900.As someone who’s been an athlete her whole life it’s hard to not want to go all the way to the top and crush in FPO but as an older player, I know my focus is growing and sharing this amazing sport with new players and building more and more courses. My team and I have built 5 courses in 5 years.
