Default DGCR Aces 2015

Not sure if this should be stickied, like the 2014 thread? Last post there was waiting for a 2015 thread to be started, so I figured I would...



Played Plymouth Creek today for the first time. The second time through the course we played all short tees, where available. On Hole 11, I aced from the short tee (149') with a 175g DX Zephyr. A Zephyr Ace! (Witnessed by my brother-in-law.)

There are zero leaves currently, and a lot more snow, but I don't have a pic of current conditions.

Still no sticky? Regardless, I hit one Wednesday.

Buckhorn DGC, hole #13. I was throwing a practice round + extra throws for the Buckhorn Open this weekend. A nice older guy named Sidney caught up to me, and we were throwing 12 and onward together. I stepped up to #13 blue and, in tournament "What would I throw first here?" style, decided on a Discraft X Soft APX, 173g, since the hole is a slight anhyzer, about 230 ft. uphill. The current blue tee pad is a few feet to the right of the camera location in the image; the leaning tree is the one you need to beat and hold right. It felt good when I let it go. Sidney lost sight of it behind a tree in his way, but saw it late in flight and said, "Oh, get in!" and it stayed. First ace of 2015. Hope to replicate it in the tourney!

I aced the wrong basket in a just-for-fun round yesterday. It's a layout with two baskets on every hole, and it was actually the other basket for the same hole. Not sure if you can call that a "black ace" or not. Here's a photo. I banged my hyzer drive into the short basket halfway up on the right, instead of putting it in the fairway towards the basket on top of the hill, far left. This is hole #18 at Oregon Park in Marietta, Ga. Kinda funny, and it was odd taking a stance underneath the wrong basket and then pulling my disc out to continue the hole.

Technically this one went down in 2014, but I'm just now getting it posted.

Live in PA, and wanted to play somewhere without snow, so a buddy and I headed down to play Iron Hill in DE. First time playing there, so we decided to play white tees to long baskets the first found to get a view of the course. Very first throw out of the car, blind 400' ace!

I posted the images wrong the first time, and was too slow in doing it correctly to edit it in 5 minutes. So here are the pics of the hole:

Got my first ace on #17 longs there with a tb... and then hit the short basket on 18 which I was not aiming for.

Had a literal once in a lifetime experience today...two aces in one round! Both with an Axiom Envy...Proton on a backhand anny flex and Neutron with a forehand. Best of all...I did it in front of my wife and daughter!
