Cubby

I was looking at videos on youtube, and saw Cubby videos, 366 aces. What do you guys think, real or fake?

I'm sure some if not most are fake/edited. Even if some are actual aces, it doesn't count for much when you throw the same shot 1000 times and finally get one in on a dinky 150 foot hole. Just about anybody can do that...just by the odds.

Well I just took one simple video and can already tell you it is waaaaaay fake.

I run a side businesses of filming weddings and other events. I went to school for video production. Needless to say I know my stuff.

I just looked up the first video that popped up. #232 and this one is clearly faked. I'm sure he has some real aces (odds are as much as he plays he would have to)

But this SHOT in particular is so easy to tell. What I did was is slow the frames down. Frame by frame I was able to tell that the disc appears not comes into the camera shot at the 16 second mark. So when the disc fades out of frame it never comes back but appears.

This is actually a very easy effect with a tripod and basic effects knowledge. There are several ways to have done it but this is a CLEAR fake! I'm sure he might have more reals ones but I will watch and see.

Amazing what some people will do to become "internet famous" or should I say infamous.

i was saying this in the other thread, he takes way more than one shot and then claims that it's an ace. i don't think so, i have a few of those where i was practicing and it went in on my 10th throw or something like that but that's not an ace. it is still a hole in one but not for score. IMO there is a difference between practicing a 100 shots and one goes in and stepping up and hitting it on the one and only throw.

im with you the disc appears to jsut appear,
but isnt this jsut because of resolution and frame rate problems?

also is an Ace, a score of 1
or would a first drivfe ob then the second off the tee which went in count as an ace?

I think Cubby is real. However...
I counted the steps it took cubby to get from the tee-pad to the basket in ace #232... exactly 60. Now, since Cubby doesn't appear to be tall and since he is walking casually and not striding (as if to measure the distance)... I will estimate his stride at 2.5'. Thus, 60 steps at 2.5' = 150'.
Therefore, you must decide if hundreds of "shorter" aces are "real" enough for you. I suppose it's OK... especially considering all the work he must go through: setting up the camera, walking back to the tee-pad, throwing multiple discs, picking up multiple discs, editing, etc...
