2 ace round!

First 2 league aces today on Goliath at Mason County Park! Holes 9(Esp Avenger SS) and 13(Big Z Crank). I got pretty excited after the second one.

Hole 2 at East Frankfort Park DGC during the Vibram Birdie Bash. Of course, no Ace Fund.

Yeah, my buddy Jeremy hit hole 14 at the Boone Woods VBB. His dad asked, "What did you win for that?" He said, "5 points". But he did win the tourney overall, got a CTP prize later, and got another prize for winning our card. I think he was just happy getting back on the Ace train, though!

My first ace!

Took advantage of this past weekend to play six courses in four days with my wife and friends for Mother's Day.
Indian Hills - Carson City, Nevada
Zephyr Cove - Zephyr Cove, Nevada
Bijou - South Lake Tahoe, CA
North Tahoe Regional Park - Kings Beach, CA
Turtle Rock Park - Markleeville, CA
North Tahoe Lion's Club - Incline Village, Nevada

It was an amazing weekend filled with discing and fun. I was very happy when I threw from the #7 tee pad at North Tahoe Lion's Club. It was in the new basket position "C", about 250 feet through some pretty heavy trees. I grabbed my light blue, 172g Innova Sidewinder for a nice Hyzer shot. Around the trees and "CHING" into the basket for my first ace!!

I have been playing since August 2013 and this is the best feeling to get this out the way. My brother-in-law was more upset since he has been playing for almost 20 years and hasn't even sniffed a chance at an ace.

I have since retired the disc, at the suggestion of my 10 year old son. I have placed it on the fireplace mantle. I will be going out tonight to purchase two more discs to replace the retired one.

I'm upset too, been playing DG steadily the past few years and I've yet to get an ace over 240 ft.

Congrats.

I have been recording my rounds on my iPhone app. According to the stats, this was my 99th round of disc golf played. I am not sure how long it will be until I get my next one, or if I will have another...but this one did feel good. I have been able to achieve consistent 250 - 300 foot drives.....just need to stay that way and another might come my way.
