The proper fairway shot should land short and skip under the basket.
Incompetent golfers have no confidence in their putting from 20-30 feet. Competent golfers have a 60' diameter target.

Lol beating Paul at the USDGC this year isn’t much of an accomplishment.

If you are trying to hit chains and stay within 30’ that means your target is somewhere below 30’, not 60’. The 60’ target is what you end up with trying to stop on the ground at the base. Trying to hit chains means your closest land on a miss is AT LEAST 10’ behind the basket. So really you are trying to hit a 20’ target while also trying to hit the chains. Not a high percentage shot.

And let’s say you actually manage to always stay C1X when you run chains. Make percentage for C1X is around 80%. Do you think that you make 20% of your field ace runs? I am betting not. If you make anything less than 20% of your field ace throws it is an objectively terrible choice to actually throw for a field ace. And let’s be honest, the make % for field aces is somewhere in the 1% range.

Math. Try it.

Nikko's throw hit the ground well before the basket. It was a skip ace.

At least 20' before the basket. But you know, math and all.

Geez, folks, I don't care if it's ball golf or disc golf, nor who made the thrown. An albatross is going to be more lucky than good. Just enjoy having seen Nikko's, and Philo's, if you did. Awesome shots, both.

Holed out from the correct lie = throw. Not a misthrow.
Math says it was a 2 or albatross.
Not a 1 or ace.
