First TWO aces came during the LTC Ace Race in Cleveland, WI yesterday. I'm counting them...as those and two metal hits helped me take home a Gateway Titan portable basket and a couple new discs!

I hit aces number two and 3 on Friday and Saturday at Carroll Marty Dg course in Ames.

The ace on Friday was during a round on hole number 12 from the longs. Recently picked up a multipurpose stamped champ panther that hyzer flipped nicely and dropped into the hidden basket.

The ace on Saturday was during a fundraising tournament on hole 15 from the shorts with a hybrid suspect. Hit the gap on the left going up the hill and it skipped into the basket to start off the second round. Needless to say I couldn't get much going after that.

Cubby ace yesterday (3rd throw from the tee) on hole 18 at N. Asheboro. Flexed a S.EX around the main tree in the way and faded right in. Funny thing was I was having a horrible day of disc golf.

Got my second ace in 2 weeks, hit #11 at Jones Park (150 ft) with an Eclipse Tangent on a line drive that actually air bounced up about 10 feet out from the basket to smash it in rather than go low, lot of fun in the wind today.

I hit my first ace in a pre-tourney Friday dubs before the Southeastern Amateur Championship on a temp course they had set up for the weekend. The hole was 260 slightly uphill with trees on the right forcing you to throw a left to right shot. I'm primarily a RHBH player but my LHBH drive is getting better it seems like the safer shot, so I try it and bury it.

I then hit my second "Ace" warming up Sunday morning before round 3, I know it doesn't go on the scorecard so its not an ace call it what you want. Hole 1: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/media....80&mode=media# In actual play I would throw RHBH on this hole because its a clean line to the basket but I'm warming up so I throw a LHBH shot on a big flex line, right between the two trees on the left side of the basket and again bury it. Still havent hit a RHBH ace and still throw RHBH 90% of the time.

Not really an ace...

But there needs to be a word for 1 in the drink, 2 retee, 3 skip in.

Not an ace, but a....tres? Did this a couple weeks back @ Scrapyard #9.

I know, I know, there's already a word for this, and it's "par." But the ultimate man par.

I hit my third ace today at Oaks Park in College Station, TX on hole 3. I've gotten close in the past, and hit the pole on my first round. Drained it my second round. Its about 225' with an oak tree growing horizontally in front of the basket, and I finally split the branches perfectly. The disc: a fresh D Challenger

Also, I had a crowd of construction workers behind me watching and a twosome on the hole ahead of me. They all cheered (more just smiled) with me!

Well, I have yet another ace with my Cryztal Z Zone. First shot of the round at The Wilds DGC. RHBH shot faded late and drilled the chains. Awesome thing is, I called that I would hit an ace today at work. I said I would get it on hole 1, 3, 4, or 9. Hit the basket on 4 and the pole on 9! lol That totals 16 aces just this year!
