<3 that ****ty chucker course. I played my first rounds there.

Get ready for more. One of my first tourneys was in Raleigh 20-25 years ago and Kentwood was one of the courses used.

Hole 2 tee was in a longer than usual location and as I was putting out on hole 1 I watched a guy, I believe Johnny Sias, throw the first roller I had ever seen. It rolled true and hit the exposed roots and deflected up for the first ace I have ever seen.

Forget trying it on hole 18, go to number 2

If you need a ramp to get an ace on a roller, it's not an ace. Let's say a hole has a straight approach that beaks off sharply to a well tucked basket , such that it's tough to throw a shot that straight and turn so hard at the end. How about if I needed to use the ramp horizontally to guide my straight shot towards the basket. Ace, right?


gimmick - fun for certain events, but not as a serious part of the game.

Or, bury the baskets flush with the ground ( la Flyboy #22) to give rollers a legit chance.

What's next, mini windmills and clown heads where you have to throw through the mouth?

#1. This isn't BMX/X-Games.
#2. This isn't goofy golf.
#3. Don't create threads when you're drunk. Not everyone, just you. So far.

I would prefer an animatronic Abe Lincoln that continuously places his stovepipe hat on his head and then off of it.

Needless to say the basket is right behind where his hat would be in the "on" position.

Here's a video from a few years back when we had access to an empty warehouse to golf in all winter. One of the holes had a ramp in front of the basket, the first shot in the video shows a ramp ace. Good times.
I think I was a little bit smarter before I watched that.

just pick a root on a nearby tree and hit it properly and it will jump in. I've called it and done it. No luck involved if you know what you are doing.
