Memorable Win:

I was 16 years old when I got my first Frisbee Golf win in 1975 at the world's first permanent Frisbee golf course at Oak Grove Park, Pasadena, CA (now Hahamongna Watershed Park). My brother, Jesse, knew that the Los Angeles Frisbee Club was forming at Oak Grove so I went with Jesse and two other brothers, Mario and Hugo, to join the club. We did not realize that we would be playing Frisbee Golf. We needed 2 discs to play so I used a black Wham-O Master and Premium disc that I had bought to gain entry into the 1975 World Frisbee Championships at the Pasadena Rosebowl a few months earlier and borrowed the Master from my brother, Mario. We threw at poles as baskets had not been invented. I tied for first and won in a sudden death playoff (much to the delight of Dan "Stork" Roddick- #003 then Director of the IFA-(International Frisbee Association and LA Frisbee Club President). I won a packaged 141gr. World Class Frisbee. It was my very first frisbee golf tournament. I was hooked.


Remind yourself that disc golf is a game and you are playing the course- not other players-so have fun as each time you play it is really "Mystery Golf" because you never know what the result of each throw will be.


Continue to play with friends, teach, travel, and make new friends.... for as long as possible.

A warrior does not give up what she loves- she finds the love in what she does. A warrior is not about perfection. Or victory. Or invulnerability. She's about absolute vulnerability. That's that only true courage. (Taken from The Way of the Peaceful Warrior).
