Default Lifetime Ace #14, 2nd of 2020

Hit a blind ace today!

This hole doesn't look hard when you walk up to it, but it actually can punish misfires pretty badly: 220' long hole with no trees, but a paved soapbox derby track running left of, but offset from parallel (maybe 20-30 deg, or the 1:00/7:00 position - this crummy ass tee sign is incorrect) to the fairway, with a sharp downward ridge occurring exactly parallel to the derby track, and running between tee and basket. So, you can't see the basket from the tee, and the ridge can make it really tricky to accurately judge where and how hard to throw it. Play it too safe and you'll land well short, still up above the ridge and have a long downhill putt, backhand it too far left and the track will tear up your disc, and send you careening farther (too far and you're going down another steep downhill), and even if you put a teeshot about where you think you should, it's still really easy to land deceptively long and right on a forehand.

Anyways though, I let a forehand fly, heard the ching (a split second later than I expected to - I initially thought this was just someone else holing out somewhere else on the course!), and saw my trusty firebird (ace #6 with it!) sitting nestled in the chains!

Bighorn Ridge
Hole 17 - 125’(really steep downhill with very little to stop a disc)
KC Color Glow Aviar

I almost never run this basket opting instead for an upside down putter that slides to the pin. This was my strategy last night as well but I got a little extra juice on it and about 12’ before the basket it skipped a rock right up into the chains and dropped. Even if it wasn’t intentional it’s my first skip ace and I’ll take it.

Lot of Wisconsin boys getting aces this week. I just hit my 3rd of the year and 26th all time. I got Hole 1 at Hiestand Park Long tee to Blue basket with a Star Destroyer. Udisc has it at 338 feet, but it is very uphill and probably plays more like 375ish. Threw a nice mild hyzer and the right to left crosswind just slammed it over and into the basket. The basket is at the top of the hill and slightly around the corner.

I don't think I posted my other aces this year, but they are not as impressive.
Both at the Watertown course, I got hole 19 on 3/27 from the short pad and hole 21 on 3/17 from its only pad.
