Morley Player Profile: Donny Olow
Began Playing Disc Golf:
I’ve been playing since 1976, before they had baskets and Snapper was selling discs out of the trunk of his car. 1971 We played a game called ” Frisbee Bike Tag ” You had to throw a frisbee at a guy riding his bike by you in the street , but you had to stay in the driveway area. Shots were about 100 feet away so no one got hurt. If you were one of the throwers and hit the guy riding his bike past you , you had to now ride the bike , while the guy would throw at you !! We all took turns !!!! Lots of Fun !!!! We also threw at Telephone poles , fire hydrants and trash cans.
Blue Super Pro , circa 1966
