Last week I aced hole 5 at Evergreen Open Space in Goleta, CA a completely blind shot that i birdie about 50% of the time. This was from the short pad after we played a round from the long tees. The next day, I played longs in the early afternoon again. Our doubles league plays right after we finished, and we weren't going to play originally, but decided to stay. We meet at hole 5 coincidentally, and it was our starting hole. I was the first on the pad and it was the first time I'd played the hole since I aced it the previous day. I stepped up and aced it again, for money this time though. Back to back times playing the hole and I aced it. Then 6 holes later I aced hole 11. It was quite the series of events

This year has been quite the year for me...I aced hole 3 of the Dragons Lair here in Korea (on a DG Nomad target, no less!) which is a pretty tricky hole. You can try a hyzer flip up the gut and risk the trees, or try the scary hyzer bomb, throwing over OB almost the entire way with the possibility of going long...into more OB.

A took the hyzer route with a Star Teerex...see that wall behind me? Yeah, that's what my disc bounced off of...and into the chains! It was a one in a million, super lucky shot. I did it in front of four non-playing witnesses. Of course, they could have cared less about my accomplishment, but I was psyched nonetheless!

Career Ace #5 for me came on Friday the 13th at Adler Park.

Hole #9 with a relatively new-to-me Star Teebird during a solo, casual round. I have been throwing the Pig or the Roc on this hole, but grabbed the Teebird because there was a healthy headwind when I stepped up to the hole.

It was nice to finally record an Ace at my home away from home course.

Not me yet but I witnessed my first ace on the course today. Me and two buddies are coming up on eight. Another buddy and his two daughters meet us there. We let the two girls throw. My one buddy looks at me and says watch this, skip ace to show the girls. I am like yeah right. He lines up for a left hand forehand and sure as heck skips it clean right into the basket. The whole crew erupts. What an awesome way to finish the day.

I aced hole 16 at Brandywine to start the DDGC! It was marked as 419 but played about 450. I had to hit a 8 foot gap about 200 feet down the fairway and it was into a headwind.

And THAT, good sir, is why you are on Team Discraft and the rest of us (except for Mj, that is) aren't!

Alternate 6 (AKA Hole "J") Basket "A". About 150'
Hit the same basket in the "C" position in April. Used the same disc for both. That one's getting full!!
