All kidding aside...
My first ace was a blind ace... Could not see the basket but heard chains. I lost it. I LOST IT. It was during a dubs round. I started running toward the basket and realized I forgot my bag. The card was giving me the 'go check' arm wave. I saw red in the basket and let out the loudest 'F#*$ Yes'! An older couple happened to be walking a trail about 200' feet from the basket and asked if I got a 'hole in One'. I apologized for my outburst and told them it was my first. They gave the grandparent 'way to go' and I ran back realizing my partner still had not thrown.

I have never been there before...

I remember hitting my first and totally losing it. I rubbed it in for for the rest of the round, haha!

It was right after I started playing and is probably a big reason why I got hooked. By the time I hit ace #3 it turned into more of a “hell yea” and high five everyone on the card, that’s about it.

I’ve never been one to commemorate or retire ace discs either. I hit an ace because I threw the disc well. If I throw a disc well, I’m gonna keep throwing it until I lose it, break it, or find something better. Of my 8 aces, I still only have three of the discs. The others are all lost, broken, or sold.

My dad has success with the mold in the wind but then his Rubber Putter is the newer baseline plastic with the DuPont added to the plastic, mine was the older plastic and under 170 grams.
I currently count it as ace with a * saying the old hole 3 I did this on at Powerhouse Ally was over a street and hole 3 is now way different and Have only an almost ace on that modern hole. I would have had an ace during a casual round the mid 2000's if the Mach III had the modern disc catching cadge on the bottom and not the old shorter one that all baskets except the Innova ones had at the time.

I only have 1 ace. I had only Been playing a couple months. It was the first throw with a new Truth. Did some jumping up and down and stuck it in my bag. I just knew that this was the disk that was going to solve all my throwing problems and make me a great disk golfer..............it didn't!

Ha! this reminds me. I have a tradition of going out and buying one of the same mold the day I ace with it. last time I couldn't find one locally so I blew it off. funny how I always look at those molds with more affection after an ace, though....

I'll put the hole number and date on them, and have any witnesses sign the disc. Then the disc gets retired anfd I'll replace it with one of my backups. I used to keep them in the bag until I lost my favorite Pig on a terrible throw over a water carry. The hole should be idiot proof, but that one shank job into the water keeps me from ever wanting to throw my ace discs again. I figure that my ace discs have paid the iron price for their retirement.

I simply write a tally mark on the disc. I have one putter with 3 tallies.




And no other discs with tallies.

First I try to make sure I remember all the details leading up to the ace. Then I go back to sleep and try to do it again!
