TEAM LUCKY ACE
Mason started playing disc golf in 2015 and had no idea what he was doing. He played whenever he could and soon it became a part of his daily routine. Mason's favorite style of disc golf is technical, wooded golf, because he believes that's how disc golf was meant to be played. He also enjoys the challenge of learning to throw his discs at different angles. Outside of disc golf, Mason loves to fish and play pickle ball, two activities which help him whenever he has a bad round. "Having team Lucky Ace on my side gives me that extra motivation to play my best, and it helps to know that I can always rely on them." Some of Mason's favorite memories with team Lucky Ace were when we first met and ate some truly incredible food. Mason is sponsored by Mint Discs and Now Married to team member Valerie Mandujano!
Valerie started playing in 2013 and was instantly hooked. She knew this was something she desperately wanted to do. It was a great way to get out and be active while still being able to spend time with her family. Plus, it’s how she met Mason! Valerie's favorite style of disc golf is tournament golf, because she gets to compete with other great women while still having a great time. Valerie also likes to look back and see how much her game has improved. Outside of disc golf, she loves doing DIYs and finding new ways to be creative. Valerie's favorite memory with Team Lucky Ace was mini golfing with the team in Peoria, Illinois. It was so much fun and we had plenty of laughs. Valerie thoroughly enjoys being a part of Team Lucky Ace. "There’s more of a family dynamic with Team Lucky Ace than with any other sponsorship I've ever had. It feels great to know that I'm a part of something truly amazing." Valerie is now Sponsored by Discraft along with her sister Alexis Mandujano. Valerie and Mason have now tied the knot and Married on February 2nd 2023!
Alexis was first introduced to disc golf in 2013 and absolutely hated it. Later on, her love for disc golf grew when she began to see it as a way to spend time with her family. Alexis' favorite style of disc golf is casual rounds with her family. She feels that she can let loose and just enjoy the game. When not playing disc golf Alexis enjoys going on runs to clear her mind and help decompress. "Being a part of the Lucky Ace team is like having another family that I know I can count on to support me. One of my favorite memories with Team Lucky Ace is when we all played pickle ball for hours and shared many laughs." Alexis is also sponsored by Discraft Discs.
