Hit my 3rd of the year and second within 4 days today. Hole #14 Am tees at Kincaid Park in Anchorage, AK, straight shot with a slight fade into the chains with my Phish stamp Wizard.

Hit my first for the year yesterday.

Hole 11 with a new z Buzzzz

This was the first time all three of my children have been on the course, throwing with their old dad.

Nice early Father's Day present

That's a sweet tee sign. Do all the holes on the course have the same type? Handmade I'm assuming...I like the chains :D

Had a really tough showing in my tourney this weekend but returned to town and got my 4th ace of the year today. Hole #3 Am tees, Kincaid Park, Anchorage, AK. Downhill sidearm shot between two trees out of sight and then the sound of solid chains. Love my Firebirds!

I hope you're in the 51 club so you're making some extra dough on these aces you're hitting all the time. That is assuming you're not playing alone.

I hit a 180' non-tournament ace at a private course last month, Z Buzzz hyzer around a line of trees, great sound as it hit dead center chains, everybody else who heard it knew it dropped.

I'm definitely a 51 club member. On top of the $10 I got yesterday, I got a dollar for metal the evening before. I haven't been so lucky in tourney rounds this year, but I'm definitely on a hot streak with the aces. On Sunday I hit the CTP at my tourney for the ace pot (no one aced in the event), got the metal that evening at a different course on the drive home, and aced the next day (yesterday).

All four aces this year were witnessed Frank :D

Hit my 5th of the year on Hole 13 at Peters Creek DGC with my Phish stamp Wizard. Two friends and I were playing a few rounds prior to a pre-tourney doubles for our sanctioned event tomorrow. During the doubles round, I threw first on this hole and hit the pole. My partner proceeded to nail strong side chains and fall out. Two holes later, I had the most insanely crazy rollaway on an upshot that resulted in said Wizard going bye bye into a RAGING murky Peters Creek. Since that disc had two aces on it this year, I have now decided I will no longer retire ace discs so that I can raid my stack for some goodies. :D

Finally got my first PD ace (DGR C-PD) and a new longest ace of 327' on hole #11 at Atkinson Park in Henderson KY. The very next hole I threw the same PD and it skipped off the top of the basket. Almost had the back to back aces. It was my 7th overall and 3rd of the year.

I hit an ace in my local doubles tonight. My 4th...the sweetest one of all four and my first ever forehand ace! I used my champ firebird and skipped into the basket hidden behind a large tree from tee... No sign- about 250-260 feet

Just hit my third ace this year with a Ti Buzzz at Big Creek Hole #9. Second time this year I have aced that hole but the first one was a glow ace. Made some cash tonight because it happened during league.
