Take advantage of the wonderful opportunities that disc golf avails you: Travel, meet new people, enjoy beautiful parks and enjoy yourself. If you want to take your game to the top, then set goals, and create a practice regime. When you are practicing, you can be hard on yourself, but when you are competing in an event don’t let the bad shots effect you. Focus on the next shot and only the very next shot that you have to execute. But most of all, enjoy yourself.
My main focus at the moment is in creating a great women’s only disc golf event with La Vie en Rose. I have been extremely fortunate to have all the opportunities and experiences that I have in the sport and I want to help create great memories for other women in the sport.
I do have one more long term goal for my competitive career. I have won world titles in both the am and pro division. I would like to win a world title in every women’s division that I am eligible to play in. I am not old enough to play in an age protected division at the moment and I don’t know if I will do so right away, but I would really like to have a title from each age protected division as I advance in years.
This is my favorite driver. It is an incredibly versatile disc for me. It works very well with my throwing style. I tend to throw low and the Valkyrie gets great distance with low thrown shots. I typically carry three Valkyries with me during a round. One is beat and used for long turnover shots. The others can be used for hyzers and subtle helix shots.
This is my putter, but I think the real strength of this disc shines when it is thrown as a driver. I use this disc for drives and midrange shots between 240 ft and 150 ft. I will often use it on shorter upshots as well, but feel quite confident with it when throwing it hard. I really like this disc for short sidearm shots as well.
The Panther is an incredibly versatile disc. I'm very fond of this disc and would NOT want to give it up. It can hold a slow fading shot. It also works well with sidearm shots. A great choice for new players!
