Disc Golf is one of the fastest-growing sports in the USA. It's gaining popularity at home and abroad, and according to Sports Illustrated (SI.com), it's one of the few sports that has thrived during the pandemic. The PDGA has reported an increase of more than thirty percent of active members.
Holly Finley is an established name in disc golf, and as the sport finds a home on national networks and online, she'll continue to learn and grow with it.
