I think KJ had the best shot... but Philo definitely had the coolest reaction.

Hard to look cool when you're falling like a ton of bricks.

Nikko due to how crappy he played on a few holes before that and this brought him back with that celebration off the tree.

if I remember correctly Nikko DID go for the Albratross. . Philo was more "get it close" throw.

Paul had a insane Eagle a few years back. . .

KJ shot looks to be impossible

While KJ's shot was amazing, I have a hard time comparing a tournament shot with a practice round shot.
Was it a practice round or was that during the GK Pro Skins match?

Each is awesome in its own way.

I gotta deduct points for KJ because it makes me think about when I broke my leg. I also can't help but wonder if there would have been a wildly different result had he not slipped.

I vote the Philo shot. When disc golf comes up with my friends that don't play, they talk about the Philo shot.

This one? I forgot all about this hole by McBeth. This is peak 2015 McBeth where he was unstoppable all year.

I just don't see any other throw matching the skill set required by KJ's tunnel ace on a 530+ downhill throw. The amount of power needed to get that disc to flip up and stay flat for that long (again...downhill) is insane. Philo's throw while incredible, leans more toward luck than skill.

Why does the best shot have to be an ace?
