Rebecca Cox grew up in the sport and, in turn, watched the sport grow up with her. Now, as a 24-year-old veteran on the Tour, she’s constantly working on her game as the FPO field rises alongside her. I recently spoke with Rebecca about her start in the game, her work ethic, the state of women’s disc golf and a moment when she realized the impact that she’s already had on and off the course. — Hayden Henry
