I have only seen this happen twice. My daughter did this the last time we played, and she was very proud of her shot

W3rd. Saw a disc get snatched out of the air ~30 feet up by perpendicular power lines (3 or so years ago at Pyramids). Even more amazing than the tree bark catch. Wish I had a pic.

Myself, son and his friend were playing Circle R and several cows and three Bulls were standing in between us at the teebox and the chains. We were standing there saying now what and suddenly my sons friend runs at them screaming loudly and arms out and actually makes them run away to the right though an open gate. He goes to try and close the gate and the largest and he was a huge white bull started going towards him as soon as he reached for the gate post. He backed away they stayed there and we finished the hole.

The other day at crooked creek I lost my Sinus for over 30 minutes.
I hit the tree that is in the middle of this picture and watched it deflect right towards the walking path:

It looked like it ran perpendicular with the tree so I was looking all over the ground, kicking leaves, looking in the creek thinking that it rolled down. I ended up taking my shot from around the deflection site, holing out and I was going to move on but I just didn't want to leave this disc because it is so straight for me and perfect for short, tight woods shots of which I have a tourney this weekend in the woods at East Roswell.

So I finally give up and I find it here:


This tree was a good 30' up past the tree I deflected off and at probably a 30 or so degree angle...On top of that it was wedged in at about 7-8'

I really cannot figure out how it got there after seeing the deflection I saw.
