I've actually done this with a roller shot. Fence was about 4' high.

Have you ever seen one do this or any other extremely odd things?

Break out the stories.
Reminds me of another mysterious chain link fence. Hole 5 at O'hauser plays along the outfield of a baseball diamond. Your throwing from just outside right field, and are throwing it past left field. If you take the anny route. Your disc hangs out over center field, and hopefully gets back in play.

So I smash a drive low/left. Just barely made it over the fence to get it in center field, and there was no way that disc had enough elevation to make it back out over the fence...

Although because I pounded it, and it was a blizzard Katana. The disc turned and burned right into the bottom of the fence. Instead of dying(leaving me O.B.)...the disc started rolling horizontally along the fence. It turned and rolled right up the fence, jumed off, and sort of got back into a normal fight. Hitting the fence took distance off the drive, but getting back into play was just fun to watch.

I was playing at Perkerson Park last fall and was on, I believe, hole 7. On that hole, you throw downhill into the woods. Well, there is this large oak tree towards the right side of the fairway and my first drive was headed right towards it. At the last second, a gust of wind pushed it to the right of the tree and it skipped off a large branch and back into the middle of the fairway to the left.

I have noticed that my MVP discs do tend to kick off trees and continue to fly more than any other disc I have thrown. Playing in a tournament a couple weeks ago and threw a really nice shot that I was pretty sure would be parked. Well toward the end of the flight the wind picked up and turned it over quite a bit more than I wanted it to. It pushed it long and right, directly into a tree. It somehow managed to kick straight back 80+' and...parks the hole. The guys on my card were 1. Pissed that it parked 2. Rolling laughing from the way it happened.

start watching right around the 5 minute mark.
Talk about spit out! That putter came back out of the chains faster than what he threw it in.
