What!?

Got my first ace on Hole #8 at Johnson Street Park a couple weeks ago. It was glorious!! It's not a long hole but it's a steep, narrow, uphill one. Threw my Amp and it did it's beautiful slight turn and just a perfect fade through a tight gap to blow the chains up like a grenade. Left me on cloud nine for a few days. That's makes all the bug bites and poison ivy ithching worth it. I'm a lifer now, I love this sport.

Hole 1 on the short tees at Lakewood hills, watched the wind brutalize my son and buddies shots so I disced up to a predator so I could just drive it through the wind into the hill behind for the deuce. Instead I skyed the **** out of it, and the wind knocked it down hard before the fade started, nicked a tree and settled into the basket like butter. 2nd ace ever, should have waited for tomorrow when there will be some money on the line

Hit two aces Saturday during the Great 8 tourney in the Raleigh-Durham area. No cash payout, just some coupons because they were CTPs for each course.

Ace #1: Kentwood, Raleigh, NC. Hole #3 (220 ft., flat) with a 175g R-Pro Rhyno.
Ace #2: Middle Creek DGC, Cary, NC. Hole #5 (282 ft., downhill) with a 174g Cryztal Z Buzzz SS.

Well, I saw this thread, and I just couldn't help myself.....

My son got his first ace this past week...... AT AM WORLDS IN EMPORIA!

Hole 18- Emporia Country Club
Amongst the witnesses...... Eric McCabe.

Not a bad time to get your first one. Turned out to be a difference maker in the end as well.

Made Ace #4 at The Sinks on hole 4, short tee to short basket.

Sign says it's 207' but I feel it is shorter, like 175-180' or so. Blind shot.

RHBH Comet, went to the left of the black plastic protected tree, followed the tree line on the left and held the line straight into the chains. Barely heard it, jogged up and it was sitting pretty.

Finished the round even par though....



This approach shows the basket in one of the far positions. The short position is right where that green patch of grass is right below the yellow circle, before entering the woods.

hole 7 at garlough in minnesota. dinky little 9-holer . . . basket sits 120 feet, according to this site. it's a straight downhill shot with pretty much nothing in your way.

i really was hoping for a more impressive first ace, considering i've bounced quite a few off of baskets and chains elsewhere -___-

That was one of the buzzes of the weekend, 'hey, did you hear about the 10 yr old that ACED CC-18?!'
