FINALLY!

Got my first ace on hole #4 of the Cache La Poudre Jr. High course. It happened back on 2/23, but my buddy finally sent this shot of me next to the basket that he took from the tee box.

I was playing last Saturday with my two roommates on our campus course at Eastern Oregon University. We had been playing well, parking my shots most of the round including one basket hit already. we head to hole #7 and on our walk there I mention to my buddies I am feeling an ace today. So I fan grip my buzzz and send it flat off the tee and a little to the right. The hole curves down hill and to the left and that bad boy just floated out there and then dived right into the chains! The rush of seeing the disc hit chains and land in the basket before you hear that beautiful sound is awesome! Best part was I had called it on the walk there. Best DG moment this year!!

Hit an Ace on Hole number 11 at Rotary Park in Huntington WV. I was throwing a DX Wedge that i had found earlier last week. It would have been a terrible shot had it not hit chains but it did. Ace number#5 for me.

Got one today! Hole 6 Maple Hill: Reds, 310. Mark in the proshop said not only is the hole in the top two for difficulty for the layout but he's never heard it has been aced before!



I threw my beloved light pink MVP Volt so smooth and so straight. The funny thing is we never heard chains, and I was so satisfied with the pull I could have cared less if it parked, aced, or skipped in the lake because I knew I threw it perfect and couldn't have done better.

Jake had a rough hole and after he threw a couple of throws we finally got within sight of the basket but I still didn't see. He just walked over and gave me a huge high 5 and I thought, hmm "he is handling these shanks well". Then I looked up, saw it, and am still smiling!

Basket is at the bottom of the hill to the left.

Love reading about Aces!! Incredible stories.

I have one to my name - Hole 6 at Delaveaga DGC in Santa Cruz, CA, in the short right location, around 360 feet on a smooth, low grade, downhill. Gold, gold line, latitude 64, Vision (my avatar is a an opto Vision). I knew I threw it too hard, and might end up be in the road or gully, but yelled "Hit it!" and it did. My buddy Steve witnessed it. We were jumping up and down and yelling at 7:30 am on an empty course.

I'm glad I didn't yell "One Time", because I hope to get another one some day!

Thanks buddy. Felt so good particularly because the day before I said one of us had to get an ace during the 8-9 rounds we were gonna play in the next 3 days. Also the slow realization that the ace was real arguably was more gratifying than the more sudden and typical realization of an ace. Delayed gratification is a concept I preach in life and it came around for me today.
