Morley Player Profile: Brandon Langston
Started Playing Disc Golf:
I played disc golf for the first time in 7th grade P.E. A new teacher at my school in Arcata, Mr. Shaddix, was a disc golfer and ultimate player. His first order of business was to bring it into our P.E. class. We learned a handful of different shots to throw while playing on our football field aiming for a pole that had a 5′ circle drawn around it. I forgot about the game after that until I picked it up again around ’00. My first tournament was in 2005.
Innova Hammer in ’89 which I proceeded to loose that same day.
Hole 11. It’s very social, a good time for a break and if it is a weekend you’ll likely be there longer than any other hole.
5 aces so far. Hole 2 twice, 6, 8 and 19.
Sparkle Squall (aka bass boat)
Star Destroyer since I’ve thrown it the furthest and have aced with it.
1st run Champ Gator is always with me
I’ve moved to a few different putters and haven’t been convinced any are my favorite yet
“In My Bag”:
Star Destroyer, Star X Caliber, Champion Firebird, Champion Teebird, Champion Leopard, Champion Gator, Sparkle Squall, Z Wasp, Discmania P1 and P2 Putter

Favorite Pro Player:
All that I have met and/or played with have been great.
Tip For Other Players:
Learn to throw an arsenal of shots. Hyzer, Anhyzer, Forehand and a Roller are a good place to start.
