Nailed a short 157' ace today at Newport News DG course, VA. Hole 8....with an innova gazelle. I know it's a short one, but through some pretty dense trees....I'll take it! First one so far this year!

I finally did it... TWO ACES IN ONE DAY (on the same hole no less)

So I hit one here last month and it is a very short hole (only 120') hole #7 Garlough Park.

I was going to go to a different course today but at the last minute I decided to play Garlough. The first round I played with my whole bag and banged the basket on hole #2 with a buzzz, I was thinking that that was my ace run for the day. I get around to hole #7 and throw a Wizard flat and straight right into the chains. No one was around but it was still fun.

I have been playing around with Comets because I want to add an understable Mid to my bag. So the second round through I decided to throw Comets only. I get to #7 again and there is two guys finishing out on hole #2 which is really close to the pad for #7. I pull out my Elite X Comet and throw a slight FH turnover that hits dead center. One of the guys came over when he heard chains and signed my disc for me. He did not see it go in but I was yelling and standing on the pad when he walked over to see the disc in the basket.

What a sweet day of DG... (below is a pic of the hole)

Hit my 9th ace and first of 2012 today. Hole 22 @ Addison Oaks. Blind hyzer line thru the trees and downhill to the left. Saw it go thru the trees perfectly and waited for the chains, then CHING!

going for atleast one ace every month in 2012

Jan 27th..........hole 5 oswego civic center (short tee 230ish I think) civic center skip ace off a snow patch (laughed because it was lucky as hell) champ destroyer.......20th ace!!

Feb 13th..........hole 3 oswego civic center (short tee 330 or 305 I can never remember the distances out there) champ tee bird....and another skip ace. Never heard it go in (basket is almost blind from the basket) so hopefully a little disc golf gnome didn't put it in to be funny......21st ace

I'm locked in for winter golf (if you want to call it that considering its been about 38 to 55 everyday around chicago)

After the Ice Bowl (temp course) yesterday we had random dubs, we drew cards, my dad and I drew black 10s, so hole our second to last hole, just as the sun was going down. Hole 8 ~320' relatively well protected by trees, directly behind a large suspended fallen tree, the Hyzer line is quite tight. This picture is looking towards the tee, I hit a small window in the upper left corner of this pic.



As the disc disappeared behind the tree the conversation went something like this...

"I didn't hear anything"
"Well it was heading straight for the basket"
"Wouldn't that be sweet if it were sitting in the basket as we walked up to it"
"Heck yeah man, it's been a couple months since I've had an ace"
"I can't remember the last time I've seen an ace"

my dad who had made his way down the fairway "Hey!! There's a disc in the basket!!

[Hootin' and a Howlernin']

Put us to -11. -13 took the $$
