Holly Finley started playing disc golf in June of 2011 and played for a short 4 months before moving to Africa for a modeling contract. Unable to play in Africa because of no readily available courses, Holly planned out her year for the 2012 season. Upon returning from Africa, she promptly entered into her first tournament in February and won 1st place. She then went on a winning spree, playing in 30 events during the 2012 season, taking home 16 first places and touring around the United States as an amateur player. She turned down cash on multiple occasions to maintain her amateur status in order to compete in the Disc Golf World Championships. Holly placed 4th in Advanced Women, besting out 40 of her competitors. She was also invited to compete in a prestigious event known as the United States Disc Golf Championship. She was one of 4 females and placed 27th out of 72 competitors. In June of 2012, Holly was offered a sponsorship and teamed up with Innova Disc Golf, the world’s largest disc golf manufacturer, as a Celebrity Ambassador. She was also offered a spot as the only female on the team roster of Gotta Go Gotta Throw, the largest Disc Golf Retailer in the world.
