Very nice! I've hit that part of the basket, but it has never stuck for me.

Who cares if it would have been 50 feet!? An ace is an ace is an ace.

Congrats, llama!

My second ace was 367 ft. uphill. I am proud of that one. That is cool wedging in the basket though.

@NCSU

I agree completely. The fact that it was an ace is purely incidental and almost completely uninteresting. But to think I was bragging about it is to completely miss the point of the post. I just thought it was pretty neat that the disc hit the front of the basket and managed to get itself lodged in like that (although it took some work before I had a putter again). In retrospect, it would have been more appropriate to subject it "Does this count?", and skip the first pic.

first disc golf lesson, post it in ft, When I hear a number i think feet not yards. That's not bad then and I'm glad it was a putter. I didn't mean to take your fun away, aces are fun for sure. My bad.

My first disc golf lesson was "throw the frisbee at the basket." It seems far more important that "always talk distance in feet."

My second lesson was "yell Fore! when your frisbee is about to hit someone."

I just thought of this, wasn't your first ace only like 140 ft also?
