Default Metal but no ACE

Last night in League play I was LUCKY enough to hit metal.. caught the pole on a 288 ft sidearm shot that was fading to the right.. It was actually the flight path I was intending, so that was cool... It felt great, BUT the first ACE still eludes me.. I've hit metal 3 times in the last two weeks, Maybe.. maybe..

Im still a newb, but a play ALOT (great work schedule), even being new I figure the more I play the greater my chances.. last night would have been so cool.. witness, it wasn't a bounced shot off some stray limb, or well woulda coulda shoulda.. didn't happen.

I feel your pain; I recently just missed what would have been my first ace, too. Last week I was practicing a few low ceiling tunnel shots on a 255' hole, hit the very top of the basket with an Underworld. Two inches higher and it goes in. Would have been a very sweet mild S curve shot. It was dead on the line, just not quite enough height. So it goes.

I've had lots of metal hits over the years, but haven't gotten my first ace yet. I was close a couple times last month, most recently blew through the plastic stick holding a flag on top of a basket on a somewhat downhill hole - dead center, just a foot too high

Any time I have hit metal on an ace run I usually end up with a 3 or a 4. I have had some ridiculously bad roll aways on the mountain hitting full chains. Had a thumber that smashed the curtain, popped out and rolled 150 feet down a wooded side hill

I hate the ones that hit the top of the cage and bounce away. Or hitting chains pretty solid and spitting out. I've got about 5 or 6 of these with no aces yet.

Hit basket once form about 250 out... I think that sound is worse than hitting the crossbar in soccer.

Dont worry about Aces they will come. They are just bad shots stopped by the basket anyways!

I went from never even close to hitting the upright twice last week. Homing in on my first one, I can feel it.
