Question from Julia:

What's it like to be a Professional Disc Golfing Woman?

Response from Des:

 Hi Julia,

I have been a professional disc golfer since 2001. It has been a wonderful experience that has been full of unique opportunities to travel, meet new people, and teach others about the lifetime sport of disc golf.

Discing Down

Question from Jennifer:

What do you think of the concept of "discing down?" I keep reading on disc golf forums that people who can't throw a Roc 300’ and a fairway driver 350’ shouldn't use distance drivers at all.

But I see a lot of ladies I compete with using 150g class Wraiths, Vulcans, Katanas, etc. and tell me to do the same, even though I can only throw Rocs 250 feet, Leopards 275, and Sidewinders 300 feet (max weight and 150 class). I “disced down” for 6 months, but started using the Sidewinders again recently. 

Do you think I should ditch the Sidewinders and just throw Leopards, keep the Sidewinders, or switch to 150 class Wraiths? Thank you.
