Whatever he is doing is fine by me. I just "hope" he is not lying and faking this.

I will give him the benefit of the doubt and not try and crucify him today. But the question remains why would anybody spend that much time to show off an ace?

After watching some more vids I think many more are fake. Just my humble opinion and not trying to get you to swing with my way of thinking.

I think that all his stuff is real. I mean, I don't know why anybody would post a bunch of videos that are fake. Seems like way more work than it's worth. I mean if I carried a video camera everywhere and taped myself, I wouldn't edit it to make it look like I got some shots to go in.
I'm sure the guy is pretty good and probably a bit better than me, but I have yet to see an ace that I was really impressed with. I looked up the distance on the holes he gets most of his aces on and they're ridiculously short.

No matter how many throws he has off the teebox, having 366 shots stick in the chains is still pretty impressive. I don't know how long it would take me to do that if I were trying...

I have never met Cubby, but have heard great things about him from people who have played with him. I don't think he's got the arm to be running a lot of long aces... but he does what he likes to do, and has stirred up a lot of interest, regardless of whether or not people agree with him.

I think of him like Bigfoot -- harmless and lovable and more of a symbol than something/someone you would actually try to emulate. If he loves throwing aces, then more power to him.

i know him- he used to live in tidewater and be involved in the newport news club- i have no doubt his ace count is legit, a lot on real short holes but legit nonetheless.

With all those aces, how is his PDGA ranking?

I can't judge one way or the other but it seems to me that if he were going to take the time to fake an ace count to this extent, he would throw in more long holes. If you are already faking, why not go big? His short hole ace count lends credibility to the whole situation as far as I am concerned.

I know a course that has no holes over 150'. I am sure I could spend an afternoon out there throwing my putter, and rack up a bunch of aces to brag about but I choose not to do that.
