Im not even gonna lie but I still to this day havnt had an ace, soooooo many chain hits from tee though, Ill never be happy with my game untill I get one! Ive had the "close to perfect" throws, I just need a little bit of the luck, and it is a little bit of luck for you people who judge skill on # of aces someone's had

Well, I have no idea how many aces I had back in the 80's. I know there were a few, but not that many (I'd guess like 5). I never really looked at it as something to keep track of. But since I started playing again in the last couple of months (yes, after an 18 year lay off, LOL) I had my first ace yesterday. It was at the new course in our area, Haslet Community Park, Haslet, TX, hole #9, during the first time I played it. Funny thing is, I actually nicked the chains the second time around and the shot looked identical.

There is something to the mental side of things in all sports. You did it, therefore it is possible to do it again, and you have the mental image to copy it by.

So I guess I will start counting these from now on.

That's 1.

My first basket ace was in 2001 on the University of Idaho campus, hole #2. I was attending Washington State University, and used to play this course every Sunday after a LONG weekend of drinking. It wasn't very long but quite technical. The hole was located in between two massive brick building right on campus. I was very happy considering I had gotten close several times.

Cool Hole 4 @ Redwood Curtain

I got my first ace the day before yesterday, 06/09/08 7:11pm at the Redwood Curtain here in Arcata, CA, on hole 4. For those not in the know hole 4 curves to the right, around a big burned out stump. I threw my 148 Archangel straight and hard with a tiny bit of Anhyzer it curved perfictly around and slamed into the tonepole with a mighty clang. I ran around the corner and some guys that were putting on 9 said they saw it slam. I was never so happy to have other people on the course. This was 3 years in the making, after so many close calls and near misses it was an amazing feeling to hear it hit that pole, probably the most beutifull sound I have ever heard or ever will (till the next one).

Now that's interesting, a tone pole ace. Do you all count object course aces?

I got my first ace today!!! It was on an object course though, the course is in a big wooded hilly gravel pit near my house, It was about a 300 ft. throw from one hill top to the other, with a small canyon like drop off in between the 2 hills, the hole is a double linked fence with a "5" spray painted on a piece of wooded inbetween the fence (it sounds like chains when you hit it) I hit it right on the "5". I still wont count this as a legitimate ace I guess since it wasnt a basket but its the closest ive gotten and ill take it!
