Default Who was this Johnson City women's player??

So I was playing Winged Deer yesterday (Nov 26th) and there was what looked like a husband/wife with a dog, they walked through the course and stopped at hole 4 to throw the ball for the dog in the fairway. They politely moved and let me throw, then the wife asked if she could throw a disc out of my bag. I handed her a disc, she looked at it, said "Oh a leopard, cool." I said something like, "if you want something else you can look through my bag!" and held it out to her. She declined, got on the teepad, and just RIPPED IT. It was a pretty new one and weirdly stable, and didn't flip at all. Instead it held true, even hyzered a bit early, and almost hit the road. I was impressed, but just went ahead and finished my round.

It wasn't until like, hole 16 I realized, if that disc had behaved a predictable leopard would have, and flipped cleanly, she would have parked or ace-ran that hole. And then I was like, "she knew the disc, she threw the **** out of it, cleanly and accurately (if the disc had behaved predictably). Is there an FPO in Johnson City I just didn't recognize and completely whiffed my chance at talking to someone legendary??" If you're in the Tri-Cities area and know who she might be, let me know.

I also didn't see a facebook page I could post on for the area. But if there is let me know.

For more context- that hole is about 385', downhill about 10-15' (maybe less), and against the trees on the right, road OB long and left. It's fairly open, but wow it's not exactly a gimme especially for a backhand. There's no room to approach from the right for a RHBH. It would have to flip and glide in, and she was one weirdly overstable leopard away from doing exactly that, for for sure inside the circle putt, from 385'. Just, incredible.

Holly Finley has family in Tennessee, its Thanksgiving weekend and throws Innova. She could rip a Leopard. Was she a red head? Was maybe walking with a male family member or friend with a dog vs husband?

I think it was someone a little older than holly finley. and maybe a little stronger, though with cold weather clothes it's hard to tell. And a little shorter, though having only ever seen holly on camera, that's hard to tell too

Macie Velediaz lives in the general area and has a dog and husband and maybe top 5'ish FPO power. But she is pretty young.

Did she, perhaps yell, MY LIFE, when ripping on your Cheetah?

Sara Sinclair lives in Tennessee with her dogs and husband Shawn (who was an immortal pro 20 years ago). I have no idea if it's the same place in TN or not. No idea if I'm remotely correct here, but there's another Tennessee FPO possibility who would be older than Holly Finley.

She's middle TN, so 3-5 hours away. But I suppose she could have family there.

Why's it wrong to think just a local, amateur female couldn't unleash a disc 380'? If an amateur guy was throwing it 400 - 500', would anyone be asking the same question?

It's only wrong in terms what it does to my fragile, noodle arm, ego.
