I think it is important to not get overwhelmed by all of the disc choices out there. I would start out with throwing a mid range. The Fugitive would be a great choice because it is much easier to control than a driver. You can focus on technique because the flight is going to be more consistent for you than trying to figure out a driver. Don't try any fancy footwork. Learn to reach back and bring the disc across your chest and follow through to the target. Once you feel comfortable with this and have control then you can incorporate an x step and try using high speed discs.
Making the finals in the 2011 PDGA Disc Golf World Championships in Santa Cruz! It was such a surreal experience competing against the elite in front of hundreds of spectators. The camera crew was all around us and it felt like we were superstars. I will always hold on to that moment of feeling like a true athlete and being confident in my game when it counted most. I finished 3rd overall and will continue to work hard to get to that number 1!
We are a family! There is so much communication that goes on within the players and Rusco. He takes the time to call and email players and we have the opportunity to be a part of what is going on. We all help each other out and have great relationships with each other. I feel like we are the good guys! There are no egos on the team. We support each other and Rusco's passion for growing the sport is infectious.
