Started Playing When: I started playing disc golf in 2021 after a family friend suggested we give it a try. After one round, my husband and I were both hooked and found ourselves at Smokin Aces purchasing our first discs.

Most Memorable Moment: My most memorable moment in disc golf was the final round of the 2022 St. Charles Open, when my husband, Vince, surprised me on hole 12 (he had been out of town) and my DG bestie, Tara, waited for me on hole 18 so that both of them could be there to watch me win my first major tournament.
Bio: My name is Kate Rug, I am 31 years old and have been playing disc golf for a year and a half. I am a registered dietitian and project manager for a local non-for-profit that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I am married to fellow SA team member and arm speed extraordinaire, Vince Rug. We hope to spend 2023 exploring new disc golf courses throughout the midwest and playing a tournament or two...or three...or four...
