How long have you been playing disc golf? I have been playing for around 2 years but started playing competitive about a year ago!
How did you get your start in disc golf? My best friend’s husband started playing a few years ago and on a weekend visit we decided to hit the course. I have been hooked ever since!
What do you love most about the sport? My favorite thing about disc golf is that it is for everyone! I was never good at sports and still have a lot to learn in this game. But even at my level there is still so much competition!
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? You can only compete against yourself when it comes down to it. This is as much a mental game as it is physical
How do you approach a new course? Have an open mind! Make each hole better than the last. New courses always bring a great challenge.
What motivates you to continually improve your game? I strive to make each round better than my last. Maybe the all around score isn’t what I would like to see, but maybe I finally got that birdie instead of a par or made it over that creek without going OB. I know I have the ability to be better, and can’t wait to see what the future has in store!
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? I try to keep what conversations we do have on the course light and fun! When I start to get into my head I play some tunes, in my air pods of course. Nothing like some classic 80’s rock to clear the air!
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? My most memorable moment of my disc golf venture so far had to be my first tournament. I was playing a new course halfway across Texas with some amazing ladies that I hadn’t played with before except one. My aunt was my caddy and we had an amazing weekend! I played my heart out, and finished top 5 for my first tournament outing.
What are your top three favorite discs? My top 3 discs is a tough one. As far as my drivers my go-to is my Champion Destroyer but I also love my Crave. For my mids I alternate between my Malta and Buzzz, leaning more on my Malta. Where there is no negotiation is with my putter. I am 100% devoted to my Fierce! I do use my Penny Putter if I need to get a little distance but overall my Fierce and I are attached at the hip!
What are your top three courses you have played? My top 3 courses have a mix of everything! My home course is Zube Park in Hockley, Texas. It is nice and wide open, great for field work and a quick round after work. If I am looking for a challenge and in the area, the course at Lake Nacogdoches up in deep east Texas is great for practicing those tight shots deep in the woods. A course that holds a special place in my heart is the Crossroads Course in Temple, Texas. This was where my first tournament was held and it is such a fun course to play! Long open holes followed my short and technical shots, it has something for everyone.
Whats in the bag? I try to carry a little of everything, but mainly throw Innova, Discraft, Lone Star, and Streamline! My Destroyer, Malta, and Fierce travel with me everywhere. During the winter months my Lone Star Mockingbird and Penny Putter are my go-to for glow rounds.
What non-disc golf hobbies do you have? In my spare time I love volunteering! I am on the board for a local non-profit to help those with Spina Bifida go to summer camp. We have been around for over 40 years and it is such an amazing feeling seeing those kids, and adults, come to camp each year! I am also and avid Jeeper and florist! I love the outdoors so any chance I get I try to get out of the house.
Any superstitions you have before or during a round? Before weekly minis I always go to McDonald’s and get a double cheeseburger and small fry. Partly because I’m usually in the mood for a snack, but i did it once and had a great round! I did nuggets once and it was NOT a good round.
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? #NoBadRounds is the mindset to have each and every time on the course. I may get a double bogey on an easy par 3, but the next hole get a birdie. There is always a positive to look at! I will have a terrible round but my card mate my get their first birdie ever or make a super tough putt. It may be raining but that means clouds and clouds mean no beating sun!
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? I love that it is made for ME. My fob is a RH Destroyer fob and it’s like using a whole disc when I use it to warm up before a round. I love that it stays in my pocket while I throw and it doesn’t easily end up on the ground. I have a white towel and actually did a little tie-dye job to it and make it unique to me!
Is there anything else you would like to add to your Team FlighTowel profile? I am just a girl who loves disc golf and her dog! Enjoy the game, and have fun! #NoBadRounds
