Default what do you do when you get a hole in one?

I threw a hole in one tonight on hole #1 at Lake Park in Lewisville. Only my second ace ever and first in like 5 years. Do you guys have it signed and retire it or keep throwing it? I'm usually pretty level and expressionless when I play, but I let out a pretty good "YYYYEEEESSS!".

Funny thing is, I lost my champ roc 3. So I went to the disc store to buy another one, but they didn't have one. I found this new looking S-Line VCobra. I figured what the heck $8 I'll give it a try. I only had thrown the disc 4 times. The first time I threw it on another short hole it hit chains, so I hate to retire it already, but don't want to lose it either.

I retired a Champ Thunderbird after I got a 2nd ace with that disc. I still throw my other discs that I have aced just once with. I figured if I lost that disc I would still have to pay to get a new one, so since it was kinda unique getting 2 with it, I figured just spend the lunch money and get another new one.

Congratulations on your Ace!

Congratulations on the Ace. Keep throwing it, obviously it's a basket magnet. Have fun with it. The memory is what lasts. But, do what feels right!

My last ace was in the summer of '07 with a 9X Gazelle. I retired it only because I like my newer Echo Star Roadrunner for that shot now.

(I don't have an ace in 11 years, but I have 10 of them under my belt, all but two in the 1990's.)

This was my actual reaction for both of my aces.

Just a feeling of complete shock and amazement out of nowhere on an otherwise normal round of disc golf. I can still hear the sound of the disc hitting the chains like my hearing was amplified by 10

First disc I had signed and hung up on my wall. Second ace was with my trustiest of trusty putters so it's still in my bag but probably wouldn't throw it on a water hole or one with heavy vegetation or any kind of abnormal risk of loss, I plan to eventually retire/hang it at some point once it's worn but still need it for the moment.

I have two aces. Got them signed and wrote the hole and date. Still use both of them when I'm using those molds. The only way a disc gets retired is if it breaks.

The reaction I had to my first ace was to think that I'd lost the disc. It was a blind shot that I was sure I threw long. I don't remember what happened to the disc after that.

FWIW, I don't believe in wall hangers. I think it's kinda sad, like a race car in a museum.

I have 2 aces one with my Z Archer that was lost twice and both times returned to me. It's now retired because of bag reconfiguring. The second ace disc of mine is a Champ Thundy was in my bag during a testing phase against the OLF and it lost but during that time hit an ace with it. Thindy also retired because OLF holds that slot down now. First time O got an ace I was pretty expresionless but very excited. My second ace I screamed F**k yessss!! Did a jumping fist pump and ran it in. Both discs I marked the date, course and hole # on and drew a little ace symbol (spade) on them.

I got an ace yesterday, 220ft baby flex through the trees with a Beat DX Rhyno. Half way there it looked really nice and I said, go in, and then boom, nothing but chain.I just said nice, in my normal voice.

Didn't get an ace last year

I don't get them signed. I'm a little OCD about sharpie chicken scratch on my discs, I don't even put my own name and number on them. I also don't retire them, I just keeps a throwen em!

I got an ace a few years ago with a board flat ESP Comet, I traded it away a few weeks later, I just don't like flat Comets, ace or no ace, it went away.

I guess I'm just not a very sentimental or excitable type guy.

I usually get them signed and always keep playing with them. That said, I forgot to get my WI buddy to sign my big bead Aviar that I aced 17 at Sandhills in Asheville with before he went home a couple of weeks ago.

I do have a couple of ace discs retired but due to getting replaced with something newer & better not due to aces.
