Default DGCR Aces 2017

Sticky and replace the 2016 thread?


First Ace!! (Took almost 7 years)

I didn't get to play anywhere near as much as I would have liked to in 2016, but managed to make it out to the annual New Year's Day Battle for the Crown at Hot Shots DGC. Nothing better than starting off 2017 with an ace! I didn't pay into the ace pot (for maybe the first time ever), but did take the CTP prize on the same hole.

Hot Shots DGC, Lexington Park, MD
Hole 10 - Red to A (177ft)
Champion Roc

Hole #1 (white tee/white basket) Franklin Park, Purcellville, VA. 171g VIP Bard on a little forehand flick. Note, the rest of the round was largely terrible, to include my shoe getting stuck in the mud and completely coming off while I was walking causing me to trip and fall in same mud. End result, I finished the round appearing as though I had slathered my front half in doo-doo, stripped down for the drive home so as not to get mud all over my car, and explain to my wife upon coming home why I left to play disc golf fully clothed and returned several hours later in only my draws and socks.

But hey, it all started with an ace, so no complaints here.

Just got my first ace ever yesterday at Garfield Park in Grand Rapids.
Only been playing for about 14 months.
Never played the course before, hole #11 through a bunch of trees. Heard it hit something, wasn't chains and wasn't wood sounding either.
My buddy took his shot and we walked up to the basket so I could locate mine. He yelled out "Dude! It's in the basket!" Must have hit the metal pole right below the chains.
237ft with an Axiom Insanity I just picked up used at a disc golf shop a half hour earlier.

Side note: it was the first time my buddy ever played, I felt like a badass! LOL!

Feb. 4

aced Hole 1 at McCurry for $142

RHBH C-PD on a hyzer, clean into the chains, if it hadn't aced it would've been 60' long and in the mulch pile lol

(previously aced it before the renumbering when it was Hole 6 for $411 ... called that one on facebook 5 days before: exact hole, disc, and the skip in )

believe that's 5 for me, plus the hangar ace

Hole 2 at Kentwood in a practice round before glow. Walked past the basket looking for my disc, found it in the basket. No one on the whole ahead of me and it was dark. Funny thing about aces had none in 2016, hit a bunch of chains. This year chained out of 2 at Bethesda in the same round and finally hit the Kentwood thing.

Does it count if it's not a part of even a casual round?

Buddy and I met up at the local course last week and decided to unload our bags on Hole #1 to warm up and sure enough I hit an ace after like 5 consecutive throws. We continued to warm up (even went to collect our discs and unloaded again) and once we decided to actually start, I only managed a par

Not sure if I have a 2017 ace yet or not
