Hey I’m Chris Dahl! 30 years old, engaged to my beautiful fiancée Amanda and dog-dad to the frisbee fanatic Luna. I first learned about disc golf by seeing Philo’s albatross in ESPN and then watching every CCDG round. Took a year to realize he have courses locally but I went out and fell in love with the game. I have been playing for about 4 years now and regret not finding it sooner!
I’m moving into the Open division this year so I hope to be competitive and learn a lot from the local pros. Some goals for this season are reach a 960 rating, become consistent with putting and sidearms, and break down my form to break 500ft for distance.
Besides disc golf I enjoy spending time with my beautiful fiancée and our families, hosting at our house, craft beer and metal music!
Hello, my name’s Chelsea Leeder from Albany, New York. I’m an ultimate frisbee convert, and I started playing last summer when COVID hit and I had to find an outlet for the years of practice I’ve spent throwing round bits of plastic. I’m really enjoying disc golf, and feel especially grateful to be in the capital region where we have so many different courses to play and such a motivated community.
When I’m not partaking in some sort of frisbee sport, I’m working as a brand architect at a software company. I also love animals, vegetarian & vegan cooking, chess, dancing, & improv.
I’m excited to continue growing as a player, and my goals for this season are to chase aces & place in the top 3 at every tournament that I play in.
Hey my name is David Hudson. Im 32 years young and I’m a new(er) father of 2 girls, (which effects my disc golf game at times) but I give it my all.
I started disc golf with my good friend Mike Wuest. He brought me out to Central Park and taught me the game. After going out a few times on the course, I was hooked. A goal I have for disc golf this season is to be at least top 3 in every event I play with my main goals being at least 1 pro win.
Outside of disc golf I enjoy spending time with my family, playing guitar, singing karaoke and hanging with friends.
Hey, I am Jessica! I started playing DG in 2014. I was going through a difficult time in my life, and a friend introduced me and my husband to the sport. It was the best thing that could have happened. I met an amazing community of people, who I love, and found a sport that I love.
I hope to help grow the sport in the children’s divisions and the women’s divisions. It would be wonderful to pass on my love of disc golf to my own children and watch the sport expand for the future generations.
Outside of disc golf I enjoy spending time with my family, reading as many books as I possibly can, and exercising. My kids and I also read so many books together, and as a family we go on adventures exploring outside and wild life. My husband, who is my best friend, and I enjoy doing pretty much everything together, from going to the movies, to home projects, playing board games, card games, and supporting each other’s crazy ideas.
Hey I'm Alex Helenek, this is my 26th summer around the sun and have been playing disc golf for the last 5. I was a multi sport athlete through high school and college, and grew up casully playing Golf with my Dad. I fell in love with Disc golf after seeing the Philo Albatross on YouTube, and subsequently hearing my own disc crash the chains for the very first time. After college I moved to Warwick New York and played at the beautiful courses maintained by the Skylands Flying Disc Club.
A goal I have set for myself this season is to improve the mental aspect of my game, I often find myself fixated on the harder holes of courses that I will drop strokes to holes I've overlooked.
Outside of disc golf you'll find me spending time with my wonderful fiance and new puppy, Murphy. I also host a traveling ball golf league, ride longboards, and play just about any sport with a ball!
