I played hookey from work and got my first and second aces ever on the same day. Hole 14 and 25 at Kensington. Both are shorties around 240 feet and it was the same Comet on both shots. Well, really they were miracle shots since technically, as far as work is concerned, I was 20miles away in Brighton. Where is Guinness when you need them?!!?

Hit number 10 at buckhorn today. Pink Z pred. Hole is about 290' and usually have a good headwind blowing which it did today.

Nice ace. How close is the basket to the water?

Thanks.

25-30' if the water is down. When the water is up like it is in the pic, no more than 15'.

I would over throw that hole by so much just to play it safe...
On another note I have two aces so far this year.
4/29/12 #7 orchard park with an overhand halo. Only about 175'... Meh, still an ace
5/17/12 #1 orchard park with an opto pure into a very stiff head/cross. 200' slightly up hill.
I believe this is the first ever ace with a production run opto pure! I know Jeronimo aced with one of the Christmas ones already, but still this is kinda cool for me!

Fun thing about the ace was I missed deep and slightly right but the wind stalled the disc out before it touched the ground then blew it backwards and left right into the chains!!! :o :o :o

Hit my first ace of the year 2 days ago at Silver Creek in Manitowoc, WI. Left forhanded my Champ Valk straight at hole 18 (295') and smashed chains dead center. Only my second ace ever, but I've chained out plenty and hit a ton of poles/baskets this year. The more I play, the more I will ace.

Darth: "Join me". Luke: "Yay papa!". Well joined :-)
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.
