But...there's some talk about her attitude on the course the past year (or so?). And that smile of hers seems to be getting less airplay all the time. We witnessed somewhat similar behavior from PP last year ultimately leading to her leaving Prodigy and going with Dynamic Discs where to my eyes at least... PP seems very happy and is playing at a consistently high level.

Perhaps Cat is not happy with Prodigy anymore and wants to get out of her contract, kind of in a similar situation PP was. But for her it's even harder because her husband is part of the Prodigy team as well. I won't speculate about her personal life, that's been chewed apart already on the internet.

If she did leave Prodigy where would she go? Obviously not with DD. But...she's the #2 FPO player in the world so I'm guessing any company would be glad to have her.

I was originally thinking Innova would be a good home for her, especially so they exploit the rivalry between Innova and DD (Cat vs PP). But they already have an "Allen" as in Jennifer Allen. Discraft has Val, but I could still see Cat going there and between Val & Cat that's alot of talent to help push Discraft products to fpo players.

But...if I had to bet.. if Cat leaves Prodigy, it would have to be for Innova. I think Cat would make a great contribution to Innova's FPO team. Cat & Paul would do very well for Innova over the next few years, easily finishing in the top 5 or better at most events.
She was already sponsored by Discraft. Then went to Prodigy next if I remember correctly.

I'd nominate this for most Sportscenter-esque thread of the year if such an award existed.

Let Cat be Cat; it'd be great to see a PP vs. Cat duel every tournament but there are so many things going on in the lives of the different athletes in our sport that we shouldn't even think we have a right to know that it doesn't really matter.

Just like how PP went to DD and seems to be enjoying life more, I wish Cat nothing but the best whether she stays with Prodigy or goes somewhere else.

Having said all that, if she were to leave Prodigy, I'd expect that she'd end up under the L64 umbrella. It seems like DD and L64 split headline players pretty evenly (DD gets McCabe, L64 gets Ricky, DD gets Drew Gibson, etc) and I could see the "trilogy" wanting to split up exposure on the FPO side between the two brands.

Its called burnout. Life, dg, not enough of the right vitamins, etc..
Having a new mindset could change things.
But that would require like a life changing event like being chased down by a grizzly bear or something like that.

Two years ago, I followed a card with Cat, PP, Val and Hokum. Cat was always off to the side, distant, while the other three joked and interacted with each other. If she's tired of her card mates, it's not anything new.

Maybe she got tired of all the Cat and Cam waterbed jokes.

Same here when I followed (and took pics) @ Nick Hyde.

Cat is a tough competitor on the field. Cat is very sweet and friendly off the field. Cat is one of the nicest disc golfers I have ever met.


When a male is serious and quiet and not "chatting" with his card mates, he has "game face". He is being focused and competitive. You rarely hear: "He is such a #@*&% because he never spoke once the whole round and got angry after every bad shot."

When a female is serious and quiet and avoiding interaction with her card mates, folks say she has "witch face" and she is being *itchy and dour. You do hear: "She looks like such a *&@$%, because she never spoke once the whole round and grumbled after every bad shot."

Cat has "game face". It is a shame that being focused and competitive seems to be bad trait for females, yet it is positive attribute for men.
