Talking Crazy Shots!

Hey guys! Yesterday I had my first ever ace at Roscoe Ewing DGC on Hole 16. It wasn't an ordinary ace though. I managed to skip the disc off the ground and into the basket! So my question is, what was your craziest shot? Did you ricochet and make a shot off of a tree, or did you hit a deer in stride? Let me know!

a skip ace is pretty ordinary. a water or ice skip ace though is something juicy.

I saw a bounce ace off of a thumber. That was pretty crazy.

Crazy as in good OR bad?

I once threw a putt that splashed chains, then stoop up on the rim of the basket and spun (vertically on it's edge) in place 1 & 1/2 times around...

...before falling out.

Saw a guy get his first ever ace, and it was during a tournament.
He threw a tomahawk that landed right in front of the basket. Sounded like it hit a tree (everyone knows that sound) and it bounced up and landed in the cage, no chain

It was and still is the best ace I have ever seen

I have had my fair share of random weird shots. From an accidental just get out from over this tree thumber shot that caught the wind and floated back into the basket. To a bounce off ace run that ended up being a four after two rolls of death (drive and follow up putt). But the strangest was an accidental roller of an under stable disc. I am a flicker. So I took a renegade and tried to clear a pond. Well the guys infront of me ponded their shot. So as I get ready to throw I think to myself maybe I should put extra on it. Well I chunked It straight down. And it rolled towards the pond. Then cut right. Along the front of the pond. As it passed the edge of the pond it started turning left back towards the pond. The senior on the card called BS and the disc finally died right before turning back into the pond. I took my three and moved on

A year or so ago I was at Hambrick and a guy in the group behind us got the ol' bounce off the tree ace. I unfortunately did not actually see it, just heard chains and cheering and we turned to them and they told us what happened. Pretty cool!

Earlier this year I was at Evans park and this guy threw a huge sky tomahawk on hole 1 that must have been 100 feet in the air. It came down right on top of the basket and was the most ridiculous shot i've ever seen. It would have exploded the basket had it gone in.

I have no such stories to add. Instead, I just want to say congratulations on your ace, OP!
