Grand Prize - Top Shots Holly Finley, Cambridge, WI Prize: $500 Discraft shopping spree "From Runways to Fairways, From Fashion to Frisbees" Caption: "I'm an international fashion model. I always take my putter with me wherever I go, because you never know when you might get the urge to Putt! I brought my putter to work with me at an Oscar de la Renta Fashion show. I spent most of the down time putting into a chair backstage. The client was a bit shocked that I was putting in her $10,000 Oscar gown. Good times! I got asked a lot of questions by people who have never even heard of the sport. I know I educated at least 25 people on the sport of disc golf and how amazing it is. Thank you." Judge quote: "The disc craze of the 1970's left an enduring association between the flying disc and the hippie culture. This entry is a terrific example of how TYDTWD is helping to continue the shift away from that old stereotype. Disc sports are for everyone."
