Aces 2012

A few weeks ago a friend of mine aced Top Of The World, #27 at De LaVeaga with an X Buzzz. He had it turning right, and then it stopped and took a hard turn to the left for a trip straight to the chains! It was an awesome sight.

Yeah, I hear ya. :D PC is the course to play around here when the weather is less than favorable, and just to get away from the other courses too when you've played them the last several rounds. It's a shorter, tightly wooded course which I enjoy. I've got 3 at other courses this year. :mrgreen:

So...I aced it again today. I did however play two different courses in between the two. :D My friend and I had invited a young lady who was playing solo to join us for the remainder of the round, and when we got to hole 13 he told her I'd aced it 3 times this year and could very well do it again. And that's exactly what happened. :D

You gotta play the macho man card more often so as of now i command you to play with young ladies each time :-) 8)
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.

I had my first ace ever today. It was #9 on the Rotary Park course in Huntington, WV. It was actually kind of bitter-sweet. The sweet part is that I finally got an ace. The bitter part is that there wasn't a soul around to witness it. I tried to get some friends to play a round after I got off work, but none of them could make it, so I said "hell with it" and played a round by myself. Of course that's when I ace a hole.

Anyways, I'm not sure of the footage. Probably 250 or so with a decent headwind. I threw a star leopard and it started off looking like it was going to turn and burn and fly off the side of the mountain. Then it was lifted abruptly by the wind and started fading hard and set down in the basket.

I immediately took a pic from the pad and sent it to my friends. Anybody that knows me knows that I'm far too lazy to go put a disc in the basket and then walk all the way back to the tee, so hopefully that pic will be sufficient proof for my friends. I think they'll still bust my balls about it though. Haha

Man I'm having some luck this year. #8 for 2012, Hole 9 at Peters Creek DGC. Firebird flick into the chains. My friend had aced hole 7 during our first round, and handed me the $5 bill I'd given him then. We then went to hole 10, where he got his 2nd ace of the day and the $5 right back. :D

Hole #8 Town Lake in McKinney during a league round. Won the daily ace pot and promptly paid dues to join so the next time it happens I can get the full ace pot.

Not bad for the 6th round in the last 1.5-2 years.
