If at first you don’t succeed, fix your ponytail, and try it again.
Year Started Disc Golf
When/how did you discover disc golf and knew you absolutely loved it?
I first heard about disc golf from my boyfriend (now husband). He brought me to a disc golf course near my university campus for our first date. At first I would just go with him and try to throw a couple of shots, but after a while, I was hooked. It gave me a sense of accomplishment to see my disc flying farther and going where I had hoped it would go (Well some of the time) haha.
What’s your favourite RPM Disc in your bag right now and why?
Pekapeka. It’s a great and versatile fairway driver. “Dependability” is the word I would use to describe this disc.
Do you have any practice routines? If so, what are they?
I will do putting and fieldwork like most of the players. However, I truly believe upper body workout did improve my strength and endurance. Besides that, I will also practice my up-shot half of the distance from the tee pad to the basket, then try to make every shot in 2.
What are your goals for the current season?
I would like to improve my putting and meet more players from other countries. If I have the opportunities, I would like to compete in more international events as well.
Do you have a proudest disc golf moment?
What is the most memorable disc golf battle you’ve experienced/witnessed?
What is your go to tip for disc golf beginners?
I would suggest newer players work on their form, which will help them in the long run. Most importantly is to enjoy the moment when they are playing (Be it with nature, their friends or with the course). The more they play, the better improvement they will make.
If you could play any course in the world and bring along any 3 disc golf friends, where and who would it be?
If I could play any course in the world, it would be Carter Park at Bowling Green Ohio, USA. That’s the course I got introduced to disc golf when I had my first date with my husband. My card mates will be my father-in-law (who always supports and encourages me), with my mother who actually has never played but I wish she would. Finally, a high-level female player (No certain person in particular) that I can learn from (technique and experience-wise).
