This is a team-play best-shot 2-disc challenge. All players are required to use only a putter and a mid-range disc. You can use the ones provided (to the first 76 players) or use your own.

Alisabeth Von Presley: A rocker raised on a well balanced diet of Michael Jackson, Pat Benatar, and a plateful of glitter. This Iowa girl has left a memorable impact on stages from Los Angeles to New York -- with stops at "American Idol" and "Cabaret In The Courtyard" in between. Performing on the heels of her new singles - this Iowa native performs with a flair for the dynamic and theatrical; she's most easily described -- can she be easily described? -- as a "passionate performance roller-coaster tied up in pleather pants and sequin stilettos." Or as one musical critic wrote, “when Alisabeth sings, the neon rainbow melts into a swirling puddle."
