- Favorite DGA Disc:
Breaker, Squall, Sail: When I have a tough shot where I need to flick 50-75 ft. or backhand an approach shot from outside 60ft into head wind, I’ll grab my flex breaker. When I have a straight fairway shot, I’ll throw my squall with some subtle hyzer and watch it glide to the pin. And when I need a left-to-right anyhyzer shot, I’ll grab my Sail and backhand it on a hard hyzer angle out to the left and watch it turn hard and fade soft to the right.

What about being a part of Team DGA excites you the most?
- Growing the female presence on the team, growing DGA’s social media presence, and increasing community outreach.
What is the strongest part of your Disc Golf game?
- Putting. Indoor putting league (thanks AJ Wecker) and having a portable basket (a Mach lite, of course) at home really elevates the short game.
What is your best tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
- Finesse your throws for accuracy. Throwing full power will be less accurate.
What is your best mental tip for a disc golfer that has just started playing?
- Throw lightweight, slow your form down, and keep a positive mindset. With every throw you’re making progress forward.
How do you prepare for a big event both mentally and physically?
- During the week, I do fieldwork (instead of playing casual rounds), drink lots of water, and gets lots of sleep. I also like to watch coverage (if available) of the course I’m going to play to determine which line/disc I should throw.
- Day-of the event, I meditate in the mornings, arrive 30-45 mins early to the course, and get in some practice putts/drives. Before and each round, I make sure to stretch or do yoga.
