Morley Player Profile: Carlo Pelg
Began Playing Disc Golf:
I began playing this game in 1997. In 1998 I found out about tournaments and began to play monthlies at Morley. In October of 1999 I decided to play my first ever PDGS event. It was the SoCal Championships at La Mirada, Intermediate division and took 5th. The following year I decided to play Advance and took first at the Wintertime open in Pasadena. In 2001 I challenged myself and started playing n the pro division and never looked back, winning the 2001 PDGA rookie of the year.
Believe it or not my first ever disc was a DX Raven. My first ever Ace disc was a DX Banchee. Hole 1b
Favorite Hole at Morley and Why?:
Its gotta be hole 5. Only because of the ohhhs and awwws from the back up of people that are watching the disc fly that far.
Morley Field Aces?:
I have approximately 75 aces at Morley.
