That's the one. The 300' hole that plays like 400'.

The Des Moines Disc Golf Club played Pickard tonight. I hit an ace on Hole #4 from the shorts. Ace fund was getting big so they played everything from the shorts tonight. 8)

Totally forgot about this. I hit a tomahawk skip ace on a 240ish hole with my Trident four weeks ago but didn't pay the ace pool. I didn't really care that much about the money I missed because the birdie-ace-birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie stretch gave me about the same amount that I had won in the ace pool :D Also I neither saw nor heard it. I had already turned away from my shot when I heard the spotter shout: "drin" [english it's just: "in"] :D

Me looking stupid while getting the disc from the basket:

Congratulations that is a rare type of throw i imagine.
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.

Nice. Could this be the first video ever of two aces in a day for a single player?

Hit my 5th of the year back in August on a short putter hyzer and got my 6th tonight at our pre-tourney dubs. Hole 14 Peters Creek DGC, my Wizard kissed off the left side of a tree and redirected perfectly to head straight into the chains. We put in a lot of work on this course this year, rerouting several holes and installing concrete tees. Pretty stoked to have aced hole 14 from both the old and the new tees, as it was the first tee I dug during the project. :D

I only have two in about 7 years. Aces are fun; failed ace runs usually aren't. I'll take a 5' putt for bird over a 30' come-backer as a result of going for the chains and missing.




At least that's what I tell myself.

That's probably a good reason for more bad luck. I am aiming 10 feet in front of the basket instead of directly at the basket. That and I rarely use overstable discs which limits chances of a bounce in ace.

I finally got my first ace... three weeks ago during winter glow league. Got my 2nd ace two weeks later in the same league. Both were short wooded holes, with a Classic Hard Judge.

You should have started a new "Aces 2014" thread - you would have the first two of the year posted. Regardless, congratulations on getting your first ace(s)!!
