Heh, I always refer people to this site when they want to learn good technique, i still have much room for improvement but most of what I've learned has stemmed from this site.

definately, I read all the articles a couple times a while before I ever checked the forum. The articles helped emmensely, while the forum helped tie it all togeather, I honestly dont think I would play as well and I do w/ out the forum, and I am hoping the progress dosnt slow, I have PLENTY of room for improvement (especially after watching myself throw yesterday, josh can be a witness of how bad I sucked...)

I've been playing since about 2002 and never got any aces until this past weekend, when I got TWO in one afternoon. :D

Both were short holes: one was 150-200' (Z-Buzzz straight ahead), the other just over 200' (Z-Breeze a little downhill and to the right), but still...

That's a cool hole to ace, gotta get just the right shot to go through the tunnel. Nice to see some other Seattle representation on here! Did you play in the Lakewood Open a couple weekends ago?

As for me, I've been playing about 4 years now and haven't had an ace yet. :x I've rattled chains a couple times and hit the nickel, but nothing has stuck. One of these days...one of these days.

If a 2nd throw lands in the basket and there is nobody there

Postby Discoman » Tue Oct 03, 2006 1:36 pm

....does that make it an ace? Well I certainly can't score it. I threw a second thumber shot off # 12 at Delaveaga this morning and it stayed in. I was having a frustrating round, with my new partner a 3 year old golden retriever tha just loves to take off during my back swing and bring me my throws. I am lucky he can't track the s shots or long drives too well, but midrange drives are a nightmare. Anyhoo it still felt pretty good, my first ace throw, can't wait for one in a real round. the funny thing ws as I walked up the stairs to the tee, I said to myself I am gonna ace this, no joke! I guess I should have been more specific.

Congrats on the second throw chaining out off the teepad! What pin position was 12 in? right side of the mesa or middle of the mesa? That would be a cool hole to ace, and tomahawks are the only throw that will give you an ace run and still have a possible birdie putt :!:

hyzers (especially the knife variety) are great for ace runs that dont go to far past the pin too.

Pin is on the right side of the mesa. I like the thumber cause they come down so straight, and they give you a huge window ie. nothing to hit but dirt or chains :D
