How long have you been playing disc golf? 2 years
How did you get your start in disc golf? My boyfriend bought a couple of starter packs so we could try it out. I got hooked and when I found out there were tournaments I started practicing every week and now I’m hitting the pro tour full time in 2022!
What do you love most about the sport? I love that I get to be outside constantly and that every time I play a round, the experience is unique whether it be a different course conditions or just finding yourself in a different spot in the fairway.
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? Disc golf is a sport anyone can start playing and everyone can appreciate the skill required to compete at a high level.
How do you approach a new course? I jump right in and play a practice round. I’ll try multiple shots on every hole and piece together a game plan based on which shots and landing zones I can execute the most consistently.
What motivates you to continually improve your game? I want to win big tournaments and I truly believe that my process will lead to big wins if I dedicate myself to it
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? I relax in between holes and think of other things. When it’s time to throw, I take an extra few seconds to visualize my shot and set my grip.
What’s your most memorable win? Maricopa Open 2021
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? In 2021, I went into a playoff with my friend Ohn Scoggins at an A tier. I had been trailing her by 1 or 2 strokes all day and had finally tied it upon the last hole. She ended up winning after 3 extra hiles, but it was the first time I experienced the flow state while playing disc golf.
What are your top three favorite discs? Gold X Pure, Opto Culverin, Grand Grace
What are your top three courses you have played? Old Settler’s, The Fort, Roy G Guerrero
If you could play any course in the world, which would it be? Probably one of the big courses in Finland
Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her? Juliana Korver
Whats in the bag? Flightowels!! But also these discs: Maiden, Pure, Harp, Tursas, Claymore, Trust, Verdict, Justice, Evader, Escape, Culverin, Felon, Ahti, Seargent, King, Grace, Rive
What non-disc golf hobbies do you have? Board games and books
Any superstitions you have before or during a round? Not really, I just throw enough shots and putts to feel dialed.
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? It’s only a bad round if I didn’t give my best effort and it’s always possible to give my best effort.
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? It fully dries my discs easily and doubles as a useful warm up/practice tools.
