I aced Hole 2 at Devans DGC a whopping 135' in warm ups for a tourney. 1st and only throw so a legit ace. My glow zone which I have been itching to ace with so that was cool. The bad thing was I immediately had the thought that it was a bad sign for the tourney and whether it was the self defeating thought or the ace itself I proceeded to play like crap the rest of the day. At least I got my second Ace of the year as a consolation.



While I failed to get another ace I did at the very least bird the hole two more times.

I aced hole 14 at riverside park in west bend last tuesday with one of my beadless KC aviars, I think it was 204 feet. It was really windy and the first time I'd ever played the course (and will be for a long time). That was ace #6 and 1st one of 2013.

9th Career Ace (and first of 2013) at hole 15 at the world-famous Phantom Falls in Pine, CO (my buddy Geoff in the background was none to pleased with me, haha). About 250 feet, downhill on a tight gap. I threw a Star Teebird, trying to park it, and smacked a tree about 70 feet from the basket...threw my disc down and into a roller that hit a large rock and dropped right into the basket.

So after 9 aces in 20 plus years of playing, I've had exactly 1 that was skill...the other 8, just like this one, were all luck (if I hadn't hit that tree, I would have flown past the basket by an easy 50 feet if not more...)

2nd Ace of the Year came at Hole 5 on Mary Beth Doyle in Ann Arbor. A super wooded hole where there is only one line to hit really and that is a nice sweeping anny. Playing for skins buddy parked it and I went up took the shot with my Aviar and nailed the chains dead center for 4 skins =)

Witnissed this one, nice shot - seems like that one gets hit once a week or so. Didn't quite give us the edge for the win, still lost by 1.

Impressive! You hit a tree and then the disc rolled into a rock and popped it up into the basket? Crazy! Also I like that basket design. Looks like if you hit the top of the basket it would help guide the disc down into it...instead of just bang it and fall to the ground!

Yeah, my buddy Geoff (in the background of the pic) birdied the hole with almost the same shot, but much closer. Hit a tree that turned his M3 into an unintentional "scoober" that slid, hit a rock and bumped it into the tray on the right side. It's a really fun hole.
