Got my fifth ace today over my lunch break. UW Whitewater, hole 15, 215 feet downhill a bit. Felt good as soon as I released it as long as it didn't skim the trees about a foot below the perfect line.

Got my 8th ace yesterday at Tower Park DGC in Warren, IN: a course I designed and installed. Hole 8 is just a short 190' but we dug up tee areas yesterday to get ready for concrete this weekend. So I threw behind the pad about 200'. My first ace on the course, my first forehand ace, my first ace with anything other than a mid or putter (hit it with a star firebird), and it was on a suspended basket. Witnessed by atleast 10 new people, my friend who asked me to come play with him (it was only his second or third time out) so he really enjoyed it. Then a bunch of kids who live right next to the hole were out playing baseball and took a break to watch us throw. They all saw it and cheered, next thing I know, about half of them grabbed their discs and came out to the course to play I enjoyed seeing them get excited and want to duplicate that and go out and play than i did slamming the chains. i love seeing people out on the course since it is a new thing to our town!

First tournament ace yesterday! Red Barn Rip The Sequel at Lenora Park in Snellville, GA. Hole 9, 317 feet and PURED it! Wife was with me caddying so pretty cool she got to see it. First round on the same hole I parked it by running straight at it. So second round I take the same approach, even though most people hyzer something around the right sitting tree that guards the basket. Me and one of my *D's were very much in sync yesterday. So step up to the pad, and just release the destroyer super smoothly on a lazer, low line. A hair of anhyzer had her very slightly turning right as going down the fairway on a frozen rope. Starts to hook up just as it approaches the guardian tree, the whole card is oohing and ahhing. Then SMASH!! She just barrels into the chains with complete disregard for their well being. Myself and card mates explode with just as much joy. From the sound of the chains, and the joy of the card, it was later dubbed "the ace heard 'round the course".

Rewind to the first round where me and that *D were in sync. I told one of my card mates I thought I was going to ace with that disc that day. Then at lunch break I find out one of my buddies aced during the first round, so as we were breaking from lunch I told him he was gonna have to split that ace pot with me. Then sure enough I smashed one in on my third hole of the 2nd round! However, two more people ended up aceing in the 2nd round so we all split the ace pot 4 ways. Still paid $60 each, and it was my first tourney ace, so no complaints here!

Nailed an Ace today on hole 10 (280') @ Bevier Park in IL with a Yellow 175g Lucid Renegade. It was my first Ace ever. There was a nice cross wind and I was hoping to just park it on the side of the mound that the basket is on, but when I let go I thought I put too much on it and was going over the other side. Instead it hit the chains and decided to stick. I didn't even realize I had made an Ace until my wife was like "oh my word, you just ace'd!"

This morning during leagues at Limona, I nailed a nice 240 ft shot over water with a DX flat top roc. I was saying before we began that I had had many nice shots on #4 but no ace. Well today it changed, and I'm 100$ richer

Karma right there. A Tern that has an ace and never has hit the ground? Hang that puppy on a wall man.

Bryan Lynch bags his FIRST CAREER ACE on J-Park #16 for a cool $475.



A tough 217' shot.

Only 1 ace this year so far (also a cubby, but that doesn't count).

Just nailed hole 1 in the right position at Hiestand the other day. Threw a slight anny that turned enough before straightening out to be on the line to the basket. Bounced straight up off the front of the basket, barely touched some chains, and then somehow fell in.

It was also my first ace with a disc that I dyed - Bruce came up big.
