Oh, I should say that I don't "predict" aces all the time. It's not like I walk up to tee-pad everytime and tell the group how I'm going to ace it... It just felt right when I was standing on the tee-pad.

Well, yeah he did. It was were the disc ended its "flight". Like he had some control over the dog or even knew where it landed in the 1st place. You take it where it lies......

When it goes into the basket it is always a beautiful thing. I have heard of aces that bounce off trees and many other crazier things. Any way that it goes in (minus animals or people on the course who pick up your disc because they don't know any better) I am going to be super excited about.

So if the dog ran back to the tee box and dropped it there you'd take it from where it lies? He estimated the dog ran 40' down the fairway, so why not take it from that spot he estimated from? I mean, I don't actually care that he did this, it just struck me as odd and I would just feel like I was cheating myself if something like that happened to me.

Here's a video of a skip ace ball golf shot. Dude skips the ball across the water, and ends up with a hole in one.

If the dog took it to the tee pad I would take it from there...You have no control over nature. But before he got that close, I would bean him with another throw to stop his in his track (J/K)

But a person, you can tell them to drop it or replace it where it lied. So, where ever they drop it is where I would take it.

What if you disc came to rest, then, while walkin up to it, a huge gust of wind hit and made it 40' closer? Do you take it back to the estimated previous spot? Hell No!! It is a natural act that you have no control over. Just like a dog, bird, or any other animal or natural accurance.... Out of your control, take it where you find it when you reach it and play on

No, you shouldn't feel cheap.
I only have one ace, and that is exactly how I got mine.
