In a year that includes her first PDGA Elite Series win and a constant presence near the top of the leaderboard, Missy Gannon is gaining confidence.
With an even keel approach and her trademark putting, Gannon used that confidence in full force this week on one of disc golf’s most hallowed grounds to take down the title in a loaded field at the Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Championship in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

This season has proven that — week-in and week-out — anything can happen on the PDGA Elite Series.
That sets up for what promises to be a thrilling week at one of disc golf's most revered locations.
The final PDGA Major of the year, arguably one of the most prestigious and anticipated events outside of a World Championship, the United States Disc Golf Championship kicks off on Wednesday. The inaugural Throw Pink Women's Disc Golf Championship, like its counterpart, will test the best in the sport on the hallowed grounds of Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
