First Ace of 2011 tonight at the Sundog Tournament Series. Hole #4 at The Valley DGC. Used a trusty Valk. Was a frozen rope straight into the basket for a cool $271.00.

First ace EVER afte 9 years of disc golf. Hole #1 at Mooreman park in Quincy IL, 185 foot blind shot with my Star Stingray.

Didn't win any money, but the same Star Stingray won me the $140 ace pot on a ctp throwoff a few years ago.

Pretty much can't stop smiling. I should buy a lotto ticket.

I figured I'd post here since I got two aces this past week a few days a part.

Tricky hyzer lane with my Sentinel (~205) and a Flex shot with my FLX Buzzz through a few trees (~245).
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

My third ace of the year came today at Frontier Park in Tustin Ca. Hole #5, 357ft, hit a skip ace with my Star Beast.

Give yourself a little credit Sean, the first one is more like 250 and the second probably 255

hyzerflip anny dead center chains, kicked into the cage -- pure line, hand to basket, no tree.

i've had that disc in my bag for 5 years almost, since that event in late '06.
the stamp is my very first event stamp, and it's a 175g Omega SS from the unnumbered runs. started off very firm, it's become softer and flippy. i have several fresh backups, as well as some 2nd-string throwers from that run.

it was the last hole of round 1, and i tied the hot round. shot lights-out for my ability, best round in years i'd say. 2nd round, ran out of juice, jumped to near-last :lol: and the winners can suck my cash money

My friend and I were setting up baskets at local parks that would be fun for disc golf and playing holes and I aced a hole that was somewhere between 350-375. If you are friends with me on facebook there is a video. There was water on the right and a merry go round on the left.
