I love that hole b/c I feel like a big guy throwing a comet or roc off the tee on a 370' hole.

Hit my fourth ace this year on Saturday. Hole 14 from the short at Sunnyside park in Atlantic, IA. Hit it during a tournament and was in the ace fund for a nice payday!

2 aces in a month, 3rd ever. 1st was hole 10 at the American Legion course in Mountaintop, PA. New course, so footage isn't exact, it was about a 210' hyzer with a pig. A few weeks later I hit another one on hole 7 at Yetter Park in East Stroudsburg, PA. 240' hole, threw a stand-still shot with a wizard. Both were during casual rounds, so no ace pot money :( Been playing 3 years though without an ace, now 3 all within a few months of each other, when it rains it pours!

Second ace this year, 3rd ever. I knew it was coming as I had hit basket 5 times in the last two weeks, 3 of which were today. Nice 350ish shot into the basket, Riverpark Hole E.

A few weeks ago during a league round RRDGC in Watertown WI, I had a really good run of luck. The course is known as "The beauty (front 11) and the beast( back 9)". I LHFH skip ace on the Beast side, a 250' down hill left turning 20' wide tightly wooded tunnel shot to tree guarded basket. split 225$ I then LHBH a straight line over a downed log that obstructs the basket on a tight fairway. So with consecutive ace's beats your two in one round Adam! :P

Pornainen, Finland hole 3 is a 58 meter blind left turn in a tunnel lined on both sides with trees with some ceiling so i tossed a Pro Pig 175 hyzered in the rain onto wet ground and the disc skipped and rattled the chains. Even though mafa too didn't see the basket he said it's in. I thought for a while and said it's got a good chance because it hit so many chains and the amount of rattling and he commented that indeed yes. Walking around the corner i saw the white profile of the putter lying in the bucket in the direction from the pin from which the disc flew and skipped in. Career ace #11. This was the fourth course of the day we played and the third new one for me. Five courses total with 4 new ones for me and 5 for mafa. Good times dodging most of the rains and all of the hardest rains.
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 came SO CLOSE to an ace today. Threw a lazy little hyzer that skips and sat perfect on the rim of the lower cage. Damnedest thing I've seen on a course. Looked like the thing had a magnet on it and just stuck. Still haven't aced since summer of 2010.

Night Ace saturday night, Was worrying about how I was going to find the disc as I lost sight of it the moment it left my hand. Resounding chains solved that worry in a hurry. Riverpark Hole 6.
