Player Profile: Adam C Aguilera
Name: Adam C Aguilera
Began Playing Disc Golf?:
I began playing disc golf at the ripe old age of 8 years old. My uncle Frank Aguilera used to run the pro shop at Oak Grove (1984 or 5ish) and I would go out with him and all his buddies (Zimmerman Stokley, Sheldon, the Lissamens and the likes, I even remember a very young Steve Rico). Watching these titans of the old school was very motivating. I remember a wintertime open tournament sponsored by BUD LITE!!! So I played recreationally (or scarcely) until moving to north park about three minutes by skateboard from Morley. Then I started playing seriously. Motivated by the Jarvis twins and Micah Dorius until I believe 1999 Spring Fling at Morley placed 3rd Am. Won my first PDGA contest where I retired for a decade due to being a young and arrogant poor sport. Fast forward 2009 I am back and now a little more mature with a renewed passion and love for the sport.
This a tuff one. First disc for golf had to be a Midnight Flyer. The Aero Driver was my first driver.
Favorite Hole at Morley and Why?:
My favorite hole at Morley has to be a tie between 5, 6, and 7 all long. Or pro tee 8 any of the longs.
Morley Field Aces?:
Been a while so my memory of letter to pin position is rusty…
1 middle of trees short, 2 right by the park lot, 4 by the road, 8 straight by tee 9, 12 right side by fence, 15 pre pyramid, 16 straight and short and back 30 ft bye the wall, last but not least 18 behind the willow I hyzered over the pro shop. P.S. I chained out of 19 long once.

Tips for newer players and players looking to improve:: uhh maybe this isn’t a question I am qualified to answer….but I will say keep calm and focus on being courteous that way you wont focus on that putt you just missed. Adapt a consistent grip and never get attached to a disc cause I got 99 problems but a disc aint one…
Miss you Morley. Tell Leo I said sup.
