Default 6' from an ACE

I was playing the 6th hole at Kirksville, MO today. It's 305 feet, and I decided to use my 150 g Teebird. The hole is due East from the tee off, and the wind was blowing out of the North. I aimed a little to the South, and the disc went out and then turned left and landed 6' South of the basket. I thought I was going to get a 1 under, but I goofed and the disc bounced out of the basket.

So far this is the closest I've ever come to an ACE and for me it was exciting because I normally only throw around 250' So not only did I almost get an ace, but it is one of my longest throws.

Okay, maybe almost an ACE is over exagerating but for me it is the closest I've come.

Sorry buddy, I'm all out of gold star stickers.

Sometimes almost getting an ace is as much fun getting one, especially if you know it's got a chance. My only ace, I was like, "there's no way that's going in." I was shocked.

Ive hit 2 aces, had 2 hit full chain and pop out, and had 3 or 4 swipe chain or hit basket on the fly or skip. Keep playing though they always seem to happen when you arn't trying for it.

My guess is that you were 6' from hitting a tree or something that would have lowered that score...

Just something to think about.

Don, I was reading some of your posts about what you like to throw and your average distance and just wanted to say congrats on the long throw and near miss!

It was still funny though
