DGA ProLine Player Spotlight: Tony Shirley

When asked, Tony said that his most memorable win was in 2010 at the Dynamic Discs Cedar Hill Open. Tony stated, “That it seemed as though every drive and putt went right where they were supposed to go and that allowed me to play in a very relaxed state of mind.”

He also mentioned that his favorite part about playing disc golf is the opportunity he now has to meet new friends and develop new friendships all over the country. This is something that he would not have been able to do if it were not for finding this great sport.

When he does find free time in his busy schedule, Tony enjoys hunting and fishing with his wife and youngest son. Good luck out there the rest of this season Tony and keep representing for Steady Ed and Team DGA!
