A 2 on that hole at that tournament with that pressure plus that celebration. It's hard not to vote for Nikko. No disrespect to the others, who are also quite worthy.

Not sure if this counts as ‘recent’, but Ulibarri’s throw-in at Canaan Riverbend ranks up there for me. Not only because it’s an unbelievable shot, but also because it’s one of the most beautiful holes in disc golf.



Nikko’s is the least impressive to me. If that hole/pin-position was officially a par 4 like it arguably should be, people would’ve already forgotten about it.

I need to back up my vote for Nikko a little.
That day's pin position was back to the traditional 888ft, so it takes two well-placed 400+ foot shots to even get inside the circle. The hole that was Philobatross'd is 850
= Nikko's shot was 38 feet better.

And as Hamp mentioned, consider the moment - lead card USDGC is prob 2nd only to Worlds for pressure.

Philos was amazing and he’s one of my favorites, but Kevin gets my vote for also busting his tail throwing the shot.

I like Feldberg's ace at Maple Hill the best. The wind and rain combined with the tight line makes it my favorite.

I voted Philo mainly because it was a blind shot.

imo if kj woulda nailed that without falling it would have looked moar put together

it just looks sloppy and stoned

however my vote is split all three were dope af

kj had needle thin fairway and executed

nikko saw the line and went full throttle

philo had two great drives and possibly the luckiest of all

I voted Philo because I think it has the most impact on multiple levels.

I'd like to see a pro player react like this after an ace/throw-in:

Most casual disc golf ace ever
