We had an awesome league day today. I was on the lead card, and I aced hole three with my new Champion Banshee. I was feeling good about a win, but it was close between myself and a Korean player, HyunDo Jang. He stepped up on hole 18 and aced with his Dx Gator! We split a nice ace pot and ended up playing off for 2nd and 3rd, as Jason Di Gennaro on our second card put in a -8 round! Great day of disc golf!

Playing at Foothills DGC in Easley, SC this morning, my first round was significantly longer than it needed to be simply because I was unfamiliar with the course. I had to catch a flight to KC and had to be at the airport at 12:30. At 10:30, I decided to play a second round, figuring it would go faster because I knew where all the holes were. Played much better the second round, and was only one over par when I reached the 15th. It's listed as a 158' hole, but it's a tough shot because it is so steep downhill. I decided to reach for the Protostar Atlas that I just got on Thursday. Nice little flick that was on the right line from the time I let go of it. Usually, I get a big adrenaline rush as the disc approaches the basket, but I knew this was in as soon as it left my hand. That's the fourth disc in my bag that I've bought and aced with it in the first week. That also brings this year's count to 17. I'm getting close to platinum ace status!

Got my second ace today at Cal State San Marcos hole 15. It's a short hole but you throw down from the top of a walkway to the basket. Threw a Voodoo with some anny and it found chains

Just Thursday, I got my 2nd career ace on a 208' eclipse ion launch. 2 aces since June when I took up the game again seriously after 6 yrs of swearing it off. Good start to the fun.

Just got back from a quick 18 (2 9's) at this rinky dink Church course in Ham Lake. Aced #2, 245 ft. Cold wind was blowing in about 8-10mph so I took out my 175g Star TB and smoothed it on a hyzer around the tree and crashed in! Thing was so beautiful flying through the air. I knew it was close once it cleared the tree. 8th ace since September this year.

With these does it count if you just hit the chains? I have never seen "baskets" like these before so just figured I'd ask. Hopefully this doesn't come off like i'm being a d!ck

They are dgNOMADs. I would think that if you hit just chain, it would count. The target area is so small. Guess it would depend on what was agreed upon beforehand.

Do discs actually stay in these chains? IF not, is it really an ace?
