Default Practice Shot Ace! How excited should I be?

While playing Shepherd Rec. Center today in Chattanooga, I threw an Ace on #8. Unfortunately, it was just an extra practice shot I threw after my first shot smacked a tree. I played the first disc and ended up with a bogey. However, the Ace was my first Ace of any kind. I have been playing since November, Exactly how excited should I be about my Ace that doesn't count?

Really just a high five moment and that is about it. You can list it as a Cubby Ace though.

in a spur of the moment sense... very- you threw a great shot.
in a long term sense- nada- you still don't have an ace...

I love that hole! I almost went to play today but got out of work late.

I'm waiting for my ace there. What did you throw?

I agree - I have stopped counting aces since it is random luck that a well thrown shot hits the chains and stick.....or a poorly throw shot gets stopped by the chains. Plus I have a whole mixture of tournament aces with money attached and not, real aces, 2nd throw aces, cubby aces. Semantically, how do you draw the line on what a real ace is??

I disagree - any throw from the tee pad that goes into the basket is an "ace"....even if you would not record a "1" onto your scorecard for the throw.

I threw a DX Cobra. It was a beautiful hyzer right into the basket. As it started getting close, I almost hoped it wouldn't just so I wouldn't be tortured by what should have been. Nevertheless, it was an awesome moment.

An ace is an ace.

In 2007 at the Wisconsin Tour Warm up I aced in a warm-up throw a few minutes before "2 minutes" was called. You can never predict the future, so just enjoy the fact you aced! There are many still searching for #1.

Congrats on the ace

You should be 14 units of excited...whereas a real ace is ( )$ of excitement.
