Beginner Tip

Learn good habits early on. I learned to throw with poor form and it has taken years to remedy. Start with slower and/or lighter discs and progress to the beefier ones as your technique and arm speed improve.

Most Memorable Moment

Winning Advanced Women at Daisy Chains on Mother’s Day while my Mom caddied.

Disc Golf Career Goals

Ability to tour for months at a time for several consecutive years. Compete in the cash and eventually start winning some events. I want to go as far as I possibly can in this sport, push every limitation until I am the best that I can be.

Putters

Dynamic Discs Lucid Marshal

Used for 70% of my upshots within 125ft. Naturally straight but can hold any line I put it on.

Westside Discs VIP Shield

Similar to the Marshal but more stable. I use it primarily for forehand upshots.

Westside Discs VIP Harp

Used more for forehand upshots, but still used frequently for backhands. Useful for skip shots up to the basket.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Deputy

I've always struggled to get enough spin on my putters. the Deputy allows me to go for big 50ft putts that I couldn't make previously.
