Brandon LangstonPDGA#37506 Advanced Amateur
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.
First Disc: Innova Hammer in '89 which I proceeded to loose that same day.
Favorite Hole: 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.
Favorite Disc: Sparkle Squall (aka bass boat)
Favorite Driver: Star Destroyer since I've thrown it the furthest and have aced with it.
Favorite Midrange: 1st run Champ Gator is always with me
Favorite Putter: 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
Top Morley Finishes: 2007 Spring Fling Intermediate Winner 2008 Sunrise Showdown Intermediate 2nd place 2008 Morley Field Course Championships Amateur Champion 2008 Southern California Championships Advanced 2nd place (tied with a good friend)
Favorite Disc Golf Website: DiscGolfersR.us is where I go most often.
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.
