Aces 2012

Figured I would get us started :)

Second ace ever, first one with witnesses. Hole 11 at Riverpark Utah, thrown with a 150g blizzard TeeDevil. Nice short 260 ft hole.

Nice. Off topic, but how does the blizzard teedevil compare to a regular one?

I haven't had much experience with the regular ones, but so far it is just a bit less LSS and a bit more sensitive to OAT, and a touch glidier. Poor releases make it flip, but it was able to hold strong in a ~10mph head wind without a problem.

I started last year by acing in our winter league on Jan 6th. This year it took until Jan 12th to get an ace :-D

Again, it was on special winter league layout, this time though on a practice round. The hole is around 90m (295') with trees blocking the straight and hyzer routes, but wide open on the anny side (for rhbh). My practice buddy started by parking his drive on his QOLS, 10' long of the pin. I followed suit by also throwing a QOLS on a beautiful anny which it held all the way to the chains.

Now I just need to repeat it in the league round :-P

I must be snakebit or something...

Saturday at the weekly, marked 275' but I think it's shorter, throw my putter straight at the basket, it looks good all the way down to the basket, then dips low at the last second and I'm about 5' short. Then today I flip out an anney that curves around a tree, hits the chains weak side and spits out.

No ace for me, two really good looks. It's been well over a year since I aced... I gotta be due. :x

Got another ace on the winter league layout in Hiironen. Hole #17, probably just 70m (230') or so, throwing the same Grip-line Pure that already got one ace on it, absolutely straight line all the way to chains. You could see it going in from half way there. "It's going in, it's going in.." *ching* \o/

And on the next round another guy from my pool also threw an ace on a different hole. Awesome day :)

Congratulations! But you know it was a too powerful shot if it is at basket distance at that height and not fading? This is not meant as raining on your parade. It is ok to overpower if there is a hill right behind the basket that will stop the disc within putting distance. Otherwise for better overall scoring over each round you'd be better making ace runs as high steeply dropping down hyzers. Or if that line is not available then just throwing at lower power under the bucket. Two aces on a Pure is pretty damn sweet though :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

First Ace of 2012, March 13th. Hole 7 on the White course at Brewer Park. It's about 270' and about 10' downhill. It's a straight hole with the pin tucked under and slightly behind a mature Ash tree. I threw a seasoned dx Roc into about a 5-8mph headwind right down the middle and watched it slowly turn and finish solidly into the left side of the cha-cha-chains!
