At the time Ann started playing, she was one of the few ladies that actually played the sport of disc golf. So she played with, and learned from, the male players and friends in the Tulsa and OKC area, such as; Dave King, Bill Dorn, Randy Bailey, Brad Stone, Paula Stone, Robert "Doctor Doom" Morton, and Rick Neil, just to name a few.
Ann started playing disc golf in 1984. Her husband, Dave King, along with with his friends started playing one year prior. She thought that if she was ever to see her husband again she better join in on the fun. She always joked that she would have to serve dinner on Frisbees in order for him to come home from the course.
Ann and Dave King helped to establish many of the courses in the Tulsa area, as well as the Tulsa Disc Sports Association (TDSA). They were truly devoted to the sport. When not playing they were hosting tournaments, running minis, developing new courses, anything to help grow the sport that they both loved.
