Morley Player Profile: Ryan Meyer
Began Playing Disc Golf:
I think it was 06 or 07? I was instantly hooked and have played at courses throughout the US. I’ve played in a few tournaments but have been more interested in having fun with the sport. Kit Carson Park has been my baby for the
last 3 years and now that the course is open, April 25 2010, I’ll get tons of practice in…..watch out Pros, I’m coming for ya!
175g Yellow Champion Valkyrie – This Disc has taught me quite a bit about how a disc’s flight path changes with age and the development of your game.
Favorite Hole at Morley:
Without a doubt, Hole 11, position F. Blind double mandatory! Excellent risk-reward hole. Great design!
Morley Field Aces:
Hole 14, rocket hyzer around the trees, 170g Red Star Orc. First Ace ever!
171g Star Leopard – Great control disc for me, will flip over, go straight, or hyzer, depending on the speed of the spin.
171g Star Boss –predictable flight
175g Star Cro – This disc is awsome! Stable, with a predictable fade. Great straight shooter for me.
170g KC Pro Aviar – I’ve tried sticky floppy putters, and they don’t work for me…

Tips for newer players and players looking to improve:
I tell everyone that comes out to play with me for the first time that they need to give the game at least 10 tries before they decide whether or not they like it. After that 10th round you’ll just be getting the hang of throwing the disc and I’m sure you’ll be hooked. Like any sport, this game is really easy to learn, but will take years to master, and that’s the fun part! During the first week of playing this sport I bought several overstable drivers and almost quit because I couldn’t throw them with any sort of consistency! Work your way through the discs, starting with midranges, then fairway drivers, and finally to the overstable drivers so you can develop control before adding power and distance. You’ll thank me later.
