Congrats on the ace!

Also on getting a Renegade. Got my first ace of 2018 with a 167g Renegade Jan 11. A Rengade is a must have disc for me. I currently bag 5. 2 stable (max weight), 2 understable (167) and a neutral (171). That way I can have stable and understable with lights and without so I have the same discs for day and night use. I only have 1 171 so it has a light.

So, I call my buddy Troy to see how he's handling his post-op week (knee on Monday), and wish him well. I'm on my way to Woodland Mound & promise I'll try to throw an ace for him. He's a Comet guy, so on hole 14, I throw my blue ESP Comet. Yep, another unwitnessed ace. 171' Nobody on the course but me. They can't handle a little mud. ...well... I brought Troy a little sunshine, anyway!

Didja ever notice that when you throw an ace, the next time you play that hole you WILL reach for the SAME disc? And you say to yourself, "... all right, just like last time!" Well, it finally worked. Aced hole 14 at the Mound today with my blue Comet, after hitting it last Thursday as well. I even had a witness this time (my friend Billy Secen was holing out on 10). First time I've ever aced the same hole in back to back rounds at a course!

Default Finally got the first one this year.

Like many of you, aces are fun when yours friends have parked a drive and you better them with an ace. So I am playing Cedar Hills in Raleigh, Kris Hensler is playing with me and his game is way better than mine. So we have finished on round and are going to do another until darkness drives us off the course.

As we get to hole seven I am playing ok and he throws the hole with a Shark and sits his under the basket 2 feet from the pole. "Nice throw" I stated. Then I explained "I am going to take this Diamond hang it out to the right and it ought to land near by. Yup, left-handed under stable throw heads out right, then goes left, as expected...... Bam!!! It sticks Kris blurts out as he covers his eyes that "You have to move up to Advance for the next years doubles#!&*"

I am toast for upcoming doubles, but I bettered a friend during a causal round. Made him sign the disc...

The last time I was there I blew right thru no10 basket with my crave... I am cursed
The down side of those blind shots is when they do go in you don't get to see them. This was the case on my hole 8 ace at Cedar Hills in Jan. Fortunately, one of the 4 buddies i was playing with was standing on the short pad and got to see the whole thing. Wait that makes it worse that he saw it and i didn't. Damn.

As many times as you have been in that pond to get my discs out, you deserved that Ace. Way to go Big E. Wish I had seen it.

Hit an ace the other day from short tee of Hole #3 at Pioneer Trail Park in Gladstone, MI. 130' straight and slightly uphill. Not a super impressive ace, but it is a shot from a tee into a basket! My first since 2011, and my first since I started playing more frequently in 2016.

Winter golf has been fun, but I'm looking forward to summer!

First of the year, and my first outside of WI.

Hit 9 at Cloundland during a rain round. Easily my best rain round ever, -12. I usually suck in rain.

260 slight uphill, threw QMS almost flat, slight hyzer, high just right of the pin. Faded ever so gently.
