Liz, and Scott Papa, basically taught me how to throw through Youtube.
I played with Sheila at an A-Tier back in 2017. Very classy player. And the mental aspect of her game was very, very strong, as you said.

Right, the one throwing Vulcans as her FH workhorse. If this video instilled anything in me, it's do what works and worry less about what the internet has to say.

I play with Sheila all the time, we're from the same hometown. When I was first starting she was always willing to help a new player with their game.

Perpetuating myths. Weight has shifted in frame 1 with arm/disc still loaded back. Elbow nowhere near hip. Palm down finish.

I dig Val Jenkins quite a bit. Something very cathartic about watching her drives.

I also enjoyed watching Lisa Faijkus this year.

I met both Paige Bjerkaas and Kristin Tattar at the USDGC and they were super nice and I've watched them play a ton via Youtube. I like Sarah Hokom because she is unorthodox but gets great results; great player.

Catrina Allen is probably my favorite FPO player to watch. Her game is as well rounded as anyone in the field. She's got power, finesse, really good forehand, probably the best FPO roller game, and a shot for basically every situation. Seems she's still getting putting worked out, but if/when she does will be competing for world championships again IMO.

the little red headed girl DD has Cynthia is fun. She's always so happy and on the move. She's also an amazing player and has an impressive arm. Might be Double Paige some competition soon.

Cynthia Ricciotti. The Cynthinator.

I've been throwing with her for a few years now, and everyone should keep an eye on her. If she retains her passion for the sport and puts in the effort to push to the next level, she's going to be a world beater very soon. She's already a very dangerous player.

She also knows all the words to the Hamilton musical, which was pretty impressive when we sang karaoke together at Ledgestone.
