Texas Women's Championship
"TWC was born in Round Rock, Texas. It was brought to life by Vinnie Miller, Ed & Laura Coffey. Vinnie and Ed have always been the TD's, but we Texas ladies know that Laura (LaLa) played an instrumental part in keeping it together. It has always been held in Round Rock until this year and has a reputation of fostering the growth of women players from young juniors to Grand’s. Every year it’s grown in player numbers and culminated its Round Rock run when those guys decided to do US Women's last year. Now in its 8th year, TWC is taking its inaugural road trip. Last spring, Vinnie asked me if I might be interested in taking the reins. They had US Women's pending in the fall and decided they needed a break. It was an honor to be asked and here we go..."
I am a proud member of the KEEN Disc Golf team, and for the past 2 years we have been given the opportunity to sell KEEN Fundraiser Discs to raise $1,000 to give to the charity/organization of our choice. At this point, we are not winning huge payouts like many other Professional sports, so this is an excellent opportunity for us to give back to the sport that has taken us around the world.
After a month total of receiving entries and counting votes, we have finally arrived at a winner for the PDGA Women’s Committee Logo Contest! At just over 2,600 votes in all, Logo Submission #8 by Shelley Kernodle received the most votes at 766!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this contest. It was amazing that DiscGolf4Women.com visitors had to make the choice between 24 artistically creative logo designs to choice their favorite. This marks the dawn of a new era with Women’s Disc Golf, and the PDGA Women’s Committee.
Congratulations again, Shelley!

This is a tough decision for many young players out there, and a tough decision I had to make after graduating from high school. I knew that I wasn’t ready for college right out of high school because like many kids, I had no idea what I wanted to “do with my life”. What I did know was that I wanted to travel and continue competing in Disc Golf tournaments as I had been doing for years with my family.
