J.D. - Cool idea and I wish I knew how to do that - My method and probably not the most efficient:

Take photo series with camera on a tripod.

In photoshop start with the first image.
Take subject from each successive frame (image) - may skip certain frames as desired for effect and composition (motion at start of drive is slower - more frames with less movement) - This is OK unless it's being used for detailed analysis

I use the lariat selection tool - I wish I could find another way to use the Magic Wand or something to speed up the selection of the area I want - Some background is helpful for keying in placement in the next step.

I paste it and use the background to put it in place (branches, trees, tee box, people).

Then use the erase tool to remove the background from the edges of what I just pasted in - Yes trim around the person in this case and it reveals the layer behind - if the backgrounds overlap perfectly then you only have to remove the area where you want to see what is behind - like a foot from the previous sequence.

In most of these I put the 2nd to last sequence in front of the last, "released disc" sequence so the release is in the forefront.

Yes it is time consuming. The above took me one hour to do. But I could then create versions with different number of sequences to find the one I liked. I also realized I could use a copy of a layer that was just the player, create a image with no player and in my image to video software use the black tee pad as a background and move the player around. This opens up new possibilities for me based on work already spent. I then thought what other fun could I have and I did a few wacky manipulations -

I'm sure there are better ways to select the Object (person & disc) as well as to key the placement when you paste each layer on. I love the affect and I just wanted to see how I could do it and this is what has worked for me. After 10 of them I am a bit faster and learned a few things the hard way.

Use a tripod for the images.

When you are erasing the background of each layer don't go to far without releasing the tool so you can "undo" or "Step Back" and not loose to much when a mistake happens.

I need to learn more about Photoshop, I'm just a photoshop hacker at this point -

Give it a whirl - have fun and if you learn or know of any way to help let me know.
