Lou Russell, The Queen
A crowd favorite, Lou Russell, the QUEEN, will be making yet another appearance at this year’s outing. Competitors remember her for her focused determination and unpredictable and distracting behaviors to make her competition falter.
Q: How prepared do you feel for this upcoming outing?
A: I spent two days at a desert retreat in Phoenix with a sage Golf Pro to prepare for this outing. I’m unstoppable, but that’s always true and not always a good thing.

Doug, a golfing veteran, plans to really showcase his talents at this year's outing.
He says, "If you want to get my attention, say GOLF. I have just returned from the Senior PGA tournament in southern IN and have picked up tips to really up my game. Still, I have won the best score two other times so I’m feeling that I can support my team well. The girls are crazy, but the men will carry us to the finish line."

Brittney is a fireball, fierce in competition and energized by her teammates. She has been prepping long & hard for this day.
Q: Do you have any pre-mini-golf rituals that are crucial to your success?
A: I think two things have contributed to RMA’s continued success....
1- Visualization: remembering and visualizing the wins from our previous victories helps me get centered and puts me the in the right mental head space.
2- Stretching: keeping my body limber and ready for any terrain or obstacle is crucial. I never know what constraints we’ll run into (foreign golf clubs, birds, fruit, hecklers), so it’s critical to stay loose and hydrated.
The pressure is real- it’s not easy to be the returning champions- but with continued training, great leadership and focus, RMA is ready to defend our titles once again.

Alex Helt, husband of RMA MVP Brittney, has been training hard for this outing.
He explains his training plans: “To be true to the RMA team style I have prepared a series of workouts that will set me apart from all competition. It begins with training in the fine art of running with multiple drinks in hand (lids not included), not spilling a single drop, over all types of terrain and in adverse weather. The second is one I'm still struggling with-the ability to fully participate in the "after party". In preparation for this event I have pushed my bed time back by a minimum of 5 minutes a week and have stayed out until nearly midnight on several occasions in recent months. I believe if I continue to push the limits of my training regimen I will remain a formidable opponent!”

Meet Tara Morton, faithful friend of RMA intern Ellie, and novice golf-pro, but stellar athlete none-the-less.
Q: What is your signature swing?
A: My signature swing consists of the classic Babe Ruth point toward the outfield and a swing toward the bleachers… so yeah that's about as close as I get to golf.
