An Ace is always the best shot no matter what, but theyre all too rare for everyone. I have been playing only a yr. and a 1/2 and have made 3 aces, but which one stands out the most to you?

I'm sure most will say their first because it was their first, but mine is actually the 3rd ace. I was playing in a doubles glow tournament, and my partner and I had just reached our final hole. I couldnt brighten my glow teebird cuz the flashlight died 2 holes before, and I asked we asked our friends who just finished if they had one but didnt. So, I threw a blind drive and started talking to my friends. Then we heard a ching. One of my buddies looked at me and said "Did you just ace that?" I said I dont know lets go look. So we ran up to the basket looking for the glowstick attached to the basket and lo and behold the teebird was laying right in there. Not only was I cheering and yelling, but running around the course, and to top it off I won $20 from the ace pool. What made it even greater was playing a tourney in Illinois and people coming up to me asking if I was the one who made the night ace. Definitely my favorite ace!

I don't really have any favorite aces. I actually remember only about 15 of the 126 that i've had. I guess that's because they were important at the time. There is a box at my house that has many of my ace discs in it. Perhaps I need to do some reminiscing.

My favorite ace is my second one. Played 2 rounds at a local course in Charlotte. The first round I aced hole 2...which was my 1st ever ace. The 2nd time around a few of us were playing doubles and hit the same hole with the same disc (star tee-rex)...luckly 2 of the guys I was playing with were there both rounds. All I remember was walking off the tee pad in shock that I actually threw the exact same shot and actually had luck strike twice. Of course I went and donated a dollar to the lotto, just to see how much luck I really had going that day. Sadly I report, I'm still broke. For once I left people rather silent with a sweet shot.

I forget what hole it is, but it is at Banklick Park in N.Kentucky during the 2006 Bluegrass Open.

The hole was 210ft, down hill about 20, narrow alley down the middle, with a deep ravine behind the basket, and a shallow one before. There is a foot bridge over the shallow ravine to cross to the green. Being a simple putter shot where the obvious planned shot is to land short and skip up to the basket, I watched the three guys in my group throw before me. They all skip up hitting after the bridge landing within easy putting distance. Following cue I throw my Crystal Challenger, I hit the bridge and skip up, the disc hits the basket and catches the back edge of the DGA loop at the rim of the basket, it tickles the chains and falls back. Easy two.

The next round I come up to the hole, throw the same exact shot with the same disc figuring it granted me a deuce earlier, hitting the bridge and the disc skips up and lands solid in the basket! The third round on that course I step up first on the hole, one guy had been in my group for each prior round seeing me hit metal once then ace it the second time. This third time, same disc in hand, the disc skips off the bridge and it looks like it is going to hit right side chains and go in. Well unfortunately it hit too far right on the chains and it flopped upside down next to the basket. Another easy deuce.

I had to be pleased, three throws-two metals turning into deuces and one ace. My average score on that hole was 1.667 for the three rounds we played on it.

Unfortunately the disc was stolen from me at Hornets Nest 3 weeks ago. I forgot it by the pin on #12. I went back 5 holes later and the disc was gone. There was only 1 other group on the course, and they were at #14, and of course they said that they never saw it...but it was a Crystal Challenger with no tournament stamp, it was rare and meant a lot to me. Punk kids. :mad:

I had the first ace of the 1994 Pro Worlds in Port Arthur, temporarily worth $2000. I felt like an insurance agent paying out claims as more players scored aces throughout the rest of the week. As it turned out, only 6 of us had aces so it end up being worth $334. Might still be the lowest number of aces at a Worlds.

After 2 tournament aces that I wasn't in the ace pool for in 2000 I started putting in for every ace pool. Finally in 2003 I got about $150 from the doubles ace pool at Searight in Austin, last shot of the round on hole 17, in all the way. That was my first time playing that weekly doubles mini.

The next week I decided to give it another try. Don't remember the hole #, but it was about 250 straight down a moderate tunnel that ducked to the right about 20 feet at the very end, a pretty easy sidearm hole, but a little tougher backhand. My partner's name was Zach and had a great golden retriever (forgot his last name). He brought a putter, a blue rock, and a towel. We were backed up a bit on that hole and I looked over at my partner as he was very, very slowly wiping his blue rock. After about 30 seconds of continuous disc cleaning, I went over and quietly asked him, "what are you doing?". He slowly, quietly said back, "I'm gonna ace it."

I looked up to see that the other two guys had also heard him say that. A few seconds later it was all clear. He threw the disc down the left side of the fairway, turned over, and (at least from my perspective) everything went into super slow-motion as it tracked perfectly into the basket.

After a pregnant pause we all said matter-of-factly "nice shot" and walked on.

I've been playing for a year and my first of only two aces is my favorite. 6 months to the day I started playing was Father's Day and I was playing on a 21 hole course that I had designed over the Winter, which I'm pretty **** proud of. The only hole with a teepad at that point was hole 11 and measured 330 feet through a narrow tunnel of nice trees, it Oregon. Threw a STAR Wraith and the whole way it was looking beautiful. At that point in time, the baskets were homemade and even a 15 foot putt had to be PERFECT!!! to stay in. The best part was my dad was there to sign my first ace disc...as he was there to sign my second as well, that guy brings me luck. Good times.

I've had that happen a couple of times actually! I get to my home course in Oregon (Willamette in Corvallis) and ask to play with some guys who are there. I aced #12 in front of some rookie college players. And #11 (my first ace) in front of some other college kids.

But my favorite ace came at 2005 AM Worlds. Hole #17 at NAU. I just hit a jump putt on 16 from about 40' out during my last round. I had been playing bad all tourney and knew only an ace would make the trip worthy. (yes I said those very words that morning) I had two holes left to do it in, and since 18 was a huge hole there was no way for that to happen. I threw a CFR Starfire in the bucket and didn't make a noise on the tee pad. I just put my hands up and turned and faced my group. I then proceeded to throw a KILLER drive on 18 that gave me one of the rare birdie looks of the tournament on that hole. My three best shots of my trip came back to back to back. Earned $125.00 to redeem from Discraft.

I later aced another CFR Starfire (same stamp, different color/weight) at my local tournament doubles for $100.00 cash. That puts the Starfire's at COST: $40.00, REWARD: $225.00. Good Investment.

I've deinatly had some sweet ones, but I hit one yeaterday that was just EPIC!!!

NORCAL vs SOCAL champinship match play 36 hole rounds, 18 singles and 18 doubles possible 4 points per group. 2 holes left to play in our doubles match Jay "Bear" and Myself were 2 back, I'm extremely frustrated, cuz My last 3 putts from 45-50 or so just wouldn't fall. (in a row) so jay was like, "Well we gotta ace, you know they're gonna deuce this" (300' hyzer open with one tree gaurding, the wind is swirling 15mph, thats really the only tough thing about the hole) So Kyle (Crabtree) parks it no suprise, Gabe (cota) and Jay throw, and I step up with my Purple Predator and throw a big hyzer, the wind was messing with it a bunch, I yelled "DROP!!" and as soon as i did it dropped....BBBBBBAAAAAAMMMMMM! super loud for the ace (Myles Harding and John Child and their group watched the whole thing) so we were down 1 with 1 to go. The next hole (#23) is a 430 ft straight to hyzer shot a little uphill, that ends on a hill. I bomb my drive, barely misses a tree and leaves us with around a 38 footer, kyle puts one 40' away or so, he and gabe both short the putt. So I told jay, "this one is yours man" so he stepped up and banged it for the tie!!!!! JUST SO EPIC!!!
NORCAL ENDED UP BEATING SOCAL BY 3 POINTS! for win #6 in a row for norcal and 8 out of 10 (stevie wasn't there for the first time this year) that is also my third ace on that predator, two sidearm skips and a hyzer backhand, and it still doesn't have any sigs on it!

Also I hit 2 in one round this year at Willits (KOA JAM), (both sidearms) with different predators, one was like 350' over a pond, and it skipped off the little cart path and directly in, like pressed against the pols on the hanging chain mach 5s so that was sick... the other one was on a wide open 200 foot shot where everyone was under the basket, so I took the tee! it was sweet.

I've got 6 aces, but 2 are favorites...

June '02 at The Big O, Olathe, Kansas Our 2nd hole, #2 (not on the island, but in the right pin position). A tree that had prevented a hyzer shot was removed due to some storm damage a few days before the tourney. I watched everyone one else throw the anny...then grabbed my Demon and slammed it home! ~$100

Sept '05, at the Frontier Open (Friday night dubs), Hays, Kansas - I aced an embarrassingly short hole across the creek that Frank da Tank had JUST aced on the previous card. Then, while waiting to tee afterwards...Coda Hatfield hit the same basket, just missing what would have been a 3rd ace in 3 cards. The split Ace money paid for my tourney!

By far, my best was on Valentines day 2003. I snuck out early in the morning to go play a solo round @ Bicentennial park in Crowley Texas. The clouds were saturated , ready to open up @ any time . I set up on old hole 12 from the white tee, threw a super clean side arm , money all the way. As soon as I realised what had happened, there was this thunder clap and rain started pouring , hardcore. B4 I could pull my disc from the basket, I was soaked and freezing cold. But hell, I did not care, I just hit an ace.

This is an easy one because I became infamous as a result!! The 2006 Eric C. Yetter Championship Cup at Tyler State Park. Two day tournament with 36 holes each day. You'd have to see the hole and my tee shot to believe it, but I started the tournament with a 17 on a par 5 hole. First hole I played and I'm 12 over par. Basically, my tee shot was inbounds but careened behind a 400 foot by 100 foot out of bounds that I couldn't get out from behind. I mentioned it to the course designer and by the end of the day everyone that I introduced myself to responded with, "Aren't you the guy that got the 17?"

I had some measure of redemption when on the first round of the second day, I Aced the 200' hole 20. The tee box is at a 30 foot higher elevation from the basket but the "fairway" is densely wooded and the basket is not visible. I asked the guys who I was playing and were familiar with the course where the basket is. They said, "See those two big trees 20 feet apart about 100' out there? Throw the disc through them and then make a sharp right and go another 100 foot or so through the woods." I thought, "Oh, well. I'll take out my Stingray, let it rip, and cross my fingers." I threw it and everyone lost sight of it around those trees and listened for it to hit wood. It seemed like a long time and no sound. Someone said "Did you hear it hit?" Just as I said no, I caught a glimpse of it going through the woods about 30 feet before the basket then heard that great sound of it crashing into the chains.

They gave out prizes for any Aces. It was great when I got up and heard several people whispering, "Isn't that the guy that got the 17 yesterday?" I'm still hearing about it - "How can a guy who got a 17 get an Ace on 20?"

My second ace.

It was one of the rare Sunday doubles a few months ago I was able to attend cause of my work schedule. We had started on hole #3 at Veterans Park in Lexington and had gotten a 4 and a 3 up till #5 putting us @ +1 with the other team already 2 under.
I step up to #5's teepad and pull out my putter and my rubber shark and decide what I'm gonna throw.

For those of you not familiar with the park Hole #5 is only @200 ft but is a tight turn over shot with a steep drop off behind the basket. The other route is a really tight hyzer flip shot with a tree right in the way of the basket.

With the wind at my back I decided it wasnt a good Idea to try the right side route with the putter since I didnt think I could flip it just right. So I went for a little side arm flick shot on the left side with the rubber shark. For the most part if the disc sails over the basket it almost always hits this honeysuckle bush behind it and I'll get an easy 2. So I letter rip and we are standing there and I dont see the disc hit the bush and dont hear a sound. My partner Ryan calmly goes "Uh you went in."
Apparently it hit the tree just to the right of the basket and plopped in .
After that we were red hot almost taking first but missing it by 1 stroke. I was in the ace pool and had gotten $70 for it which I used to get my new bag.

Of course my first ACE I'll never forget....red DX 175 gram star stamped banshee off of four branches to get in the pin...My favorite ace has to be the one I hit at the meadows course in Wimberley Tx.

It was a hot summer day in Texas out at the Round Rock course, and a buddy of mine and I were playing with a beginner from out of town. I loaned them my purple XS. All was going okay till I walked in front of them not thinking they would throw it that far and sure enough, WACK right in the back of the head...they smacked me pretty good in the back of my nugget...I won't make that mistake again!! Later that weekend, I played in a mini at the Wimberley course and played dubs on the meadows. That dubs round was some absolutely horrific golf I played. It was hot, muggy, and I was in no mood to be out there anymore...I got to my last hole of the day and was ready to chuck it out there and get on the road home. Of course I pulled out that purple XS that wacked me in the head earlier that week and slung it into the chains for an ace...$68 and a basket for the hapless throw. Funny how things work in this game...

#2 favorite - Hole 10 San Francisco - Thumber wedged solid in the bottom of the cage (can you say Fire Chicken taco, with just enough hot sauce, not too greasy)

#3 favorite - Introduced a friend to disc golf, then I ace the first hole we play. I'm jumping up and down being my first ace and all, he looks at me with this blank stare, shruggs his shoulders and says "I don't get it, isn't that the point of the game?"

Jan 16 2007, 06:26 PM
I once introduced a total stranger to disc golf .
She happened to be enjoying a sunny afternoon about 50 feet away from the basket on hole 1 in Saginaw . She had not noticed me untill my disc exploded the chains in the basket . She turned around , looked at me and says
" Is that what you were trying to do ? "
We had a little convo, gave her a disc, and have yet to see her since. She thought it was cool. I thought it was great, it was the 2nd time I had hit that hole.

Either my 1st one or it was my 5th and most recent one.

My 1st one took me a while to get. It was while visiting Warwick Town Park in August of '04. I parked a classic aviar up the middle line on hole 7 short to short. gentle fading anny and it stuck in the chains.
My next one took me almost 2 yeras to get then i got 4 in 4 months.
my latest one was a Flick at Landis park in Vineland NJ. It was on hole 5 and I was playing from the Yellow tee. Threw a Star Teerex and it just hit bucket.

My favorite shot wasnt even an ace. Brianhead Ski resort DGC- Hole 16- 794 ft. There is about 150 foot elevation drop on the hole. Straight down at first, then it levels off a little bit for the last half of the hole. Great golf hole. I threw a 178g orange dx roc about shoulder height. It started off with a touch of hyzer edge, flattened out and went straight a while. Right about the time I thought it was going to fade, it picked up speed and turned over. It turned until it got on perfect ace line with the basket. The shadow of the disc was in the basket for what felt like minutes. The disc somehow missed the basket and sat 5 feet behind it.

I never had so much time to think about what was happening during a shot. I got a rush that not even my first ace could touch. The first thing that was said was from the course designed. He said with a huge smile on his face, "I didnt have that in mind when i designed the hole." To me, it was way more satisfying than any of my aces.

Mountain Golf is FUN!!!!! I would have most definitely fainted if it would have went in. In retrospect, Im glad it didnt. I would have rolled a long way down the mountain! :D

Cool ace on #18 Hickraw, Bradley. Was it the same Firebird you took out PP's ankle with?

One that sticks in my mind, not necessarily because of coolness but because of "gallery" reaction, or lack of it, was at Fossil Hill, Greene County, Tennessee, hole #7, I think. At least the one with double mando oaks 50 to 60 feet down a straight alley fairway to the basket. I hadn't been playing very long and Frannie was with me just as a walk in the woods. Brand new glo Stratus, first throw ever, dead flat, straight out of my hand into the basket. I'm kind of jumping around acting foolish and I realize Frannie hasn't made a peep. I turn around and look at her and she says, "Was that good?" I said, "Daggone right", or words to that effect. And she said, "But I thought that's what you were supposed to do." Out of the mouth's of babes, drunks and wives............. And of course she was right. Quite a simple game really. /msgboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif :D:D

1st round VPO 1999 with Nolan Grider and Barry Schultz on my card. I threw a roc with a Hyzer release(RHBH). Hit some tree roots 30' left and 30' short of the basket and should've settled well left of the basket.....but it ANHYZER skips.....nothing but net. Booooom! Ace, Ace Baby!!!! :D

Had 3 skip fairway aces with CryZtal Challengers. All 3 times, someone on the card asked how I get a putter to skip like that. Spin and angle...thank you Ultimate.

And a couple of chain-outs by skipping a CE Spider.


Favorite Ace. #2 (my most recent one). Nov. 2005. TX10 Finals in Live Oak. 1st hole of the second round. Part of a wild 30 minutes which my card saw 3 aces and 3 more near misses.

Favorite near ace by someone else. TX10 Final 2006. Neal Dambra chaining out the $10,000 hole-in-one. The disc missed sticking in the chains by no more than an inch.

Judging by the number of people who only throw (insert overstable driver here) for skipshots, you are. It's fun to watch a midrange skip up and slowly hang in the air on that sunrise/sunset trajectory.

My favorite was my first. A skip ace on hole #18 at CMC Glenwood Springs, CO, with a 160g CH Sidewinder. Not an easy hole to ace, and rarely done. It's hard to see the basket, off left, low ceiling straight tunnel shot with a long dip(s) in the fairway, sloping hill with trouble on both sides (Peter Shive once took an 8 on this hole during the CO Open a couple years ago), 249 ft. One of my friends (Chad Marshman) was standing in the parking lot and yelled to me that it STUCK in the side of the basket ... but it was in when I got there, lol. I never use drivers on this hole anymore [CH ROC], but maybe I should!
Second favorite would be an ace on hole #3 at Giannanetti Park in Carbondale. A slow floater with a 179g Aero. The disc was floating f o r e v e r before it landed in the basket. Fun to watch. The basket is elevated on a big round, grass covered mound with big trees in front and behind the basket. Very cool hole (push & putt course designed by TJ Laurance). ;)

My favorite shot wasnt even an ace. Brianhead Ski resort DGC- Hole 16- 794 ft. There is about 150 foot elevation drop on the hole. Straight down at first, then it levels off a little bit for the last half of the hole. Great golf hole.



Kinda like this?..

#18 at Winter Park. It's about 75' elevation change though. But you can watch the discs sail a LONG time and it sure is fun to watch them pick up speed and keep going.

My faviorite ace was on hole 3 at hakiey creek. No one ever takes the huge hyzer line cause it is way out thier. But i did with a champ. monster i threw it low with a huge hyzer angle the disc skipped huge then skipped again and stright into the basket on its second skip. It looked awsome. so that is why it was my faviorite ace ever.

My favorite ACE was during Hotlanta 2007. I was tied for thrid place - MM1- going in to the 3rd round on Sun Morning. On the 2nd hole I tore my ankle ligaments and litterally hobbled around the course until I got to my last hole, #18. I was going to DNF but my buddy convinced me not to. Instead I flicked my Wraith the 260ft or so and hit the ACE. After that I had to finsh the tourney, and I went on to spend the next 2 1/2 weeks on crutches. :cool:

Jan 18 2007, 07:58 PM

My favorite thats not my own.

This past years Tarheel tourney. I had 6 aces fall out( one hole i hit every round) Halton smith ran a accuracy challenge while the payout was being set up. Jon Mills ask me if he can use one of my disks so he doesnt have to walk all the way back to his car. I give him a red firechicken, which he wedge aces.

unreal.

I once aced the last hole of a PDGA event at French Creek back in the 90's. It was hole #11 200' and it moved me into 2nd place.

My favorite ace(s) are at DeLaveaga in Santa Cruz. I had lived in San Jose for awhile and played there 4-5 times a week and never had a ace. I fly out in 2001 to play in the Masters Cup. I get off the plane and head to DeLa for practice. Playing with Marty and the locals I ace #25. Then in the last round of the tournament I skip ace the hole after I-5 playing with Marty. Same disc, flat top valk. I played like [email protected] but left with 2 aces. :D

One of my favorites:

Approx 1992-93

Casual foursome including myself,Lavone Wolfe and a couple of other local Pro's at the old UAH north course. I was about to tee off on #18 (slightly down hill 300ft) when someone on a bike yelled out "whatcha doin"? A local not familiar with disc golf gets a full story on the basics from Lavone and myself. After which he says what is the best shot? Lavone says "an ace" "hole in one","go ahead and show him Deano". Of course you know what happened next,he was hooked! :cool:

Horizons Park Classic 2006. No one hit the ace pool during the tournamnet so the entire field gathered at hole #1 for a one shot ace attempt. I hit it with a blue Aviar -X in front of the entire field. (and was the only one to do so)

This was my first and probably last tournament ace and was especially sweet since I was probably one of the least skilled players there - but pulled it off anyways :)

My favorite ace happened a few years ago, it was my third. I was playing on my birthday at vista del camino park in scottsdale, I had just shot my first 10 down. I decided to treat myself to a new comet, I got one of those pre x comets at the shop next to the course, A nice stiff orange one, chalky. I thew hole 12 next to Dukes bar, it snapped up flat hit the gap and settled into the basket as it hyzered out. Cheers broke out at the patio of Dukes as about 15 guys including some of my buddies witnessed the ace.
From the wall to my bag to the basket and on the wall of my house has never touched the ground.

2005 Mid-American Open- Columbia, Missouri.
I was "the guy" that day.
You know, the guy that is in last place in his division and has to play with the 2 Women's Open players.
On the second hole, we had an Asian gentleman using the teepad as his own personal Tai Chi area.
Angela, and Kristin, both looked at me with that "You're the guy" look.
Taking their lead, I politely communicated to him through gestures, and language, that we needed to use his Tai Chi area to throw our discs.
He politely moved off of the teepad and let us throw.
When I threw a lefty hyzer, the disc hit a tree and went straight into the basket we had just holed out on.
I got a Black Ace by my disc ending up in the previous hole's basket.
The Asian gentleman began clapping and shouting his approval at my skill. We tried to communicate to him that what I had done was not a good thing, but we were all laughing too hard.
I had fun being "the guy" and getting to play with Angela and Kristin that day.

My favorite ace...

First round of the state championships last year, Beast #7. Me, Steve Mills, Chad Hutchison and Nick Noest were on the card together. I had just mentioned that I had aced that hole both of the prior weekends, one time during a casual round, one time during a league round. It's a 170-180 foot lefty hyzer. I pull out my Flick, with a light side arm flick, It goes up and fades right. I say it's parked and we start walking. As we walk, we hear a disc hit metal, sounds like a putt off in the distance. Then there's hollarin on the next hole. The guys on the next tee pad saw it go in. It landed clean in the basket, then the metal we heard was the disc falling over and tapping chains. My first tourney ace! Disc is signed and hung. After all 3 rounds were done, 7 aces were hit... ended up paying out $28.

First Ace, January 18th 2006. Hard packed snow and ice all over the course because I live in South Dakota. 222' hole number sixteen is a little anny shot for a right handed thrower or you can throw a huge hyzer over the few twenty-five foot high trees that line the right side of the fairway. Also a nice little side-arm shot for righties, but on that day I chose to not go with any of the above options and throw a thumber. I let it go and knew it was off line. It was going to be left quite a ways, but when it hit the ice about twenty feet left and ten feet short of the basket it took a weird bounce (one that would never happen without that snow and ice) and flipped over two or three times in the air and just plopped right into the basket hitting no chains whatsoever. It was the weirdest thing, walking up to the basket and not having to putt. Anyway, I eventually lost that 173 g Green Flick, so I kind of wish that I would have retired it, but I decided not to retire any of my discs. I ended up hitting eleven more aces last year and lost seven of my ace discs. I am the worst with losing discs, plus we have a plastic eating creek that runs through our course.

I lost Ace #5, out of my 7 aces three are with the same Wasp, and another with a different Wasp. Think I like that disc?

Many times I have hit the chains so hard that the chains "mushroom" up to the top but that is usually accompanied by a spit out. :confused:

I still have my first ace disc. Retired on the wall. It got beat up too fast so it was time.

Today, the short downhill #5 at Yucaipa Regional. Wasn't that great a shot on a hole that practically begs to be deuced, looked like I was going to sail long and left. Glanced off of the eucalyptus 10' in front of the basket and went straight into the chains and stuck. Better lucky than good sometimes.

Could as well be an entry in a "Why I play disc golf" thread. Some other things in life not going that well, figured I'd get a round in on my off day before a couple of weighty matters that needed attention. One good (lucky) shot and things get a bit brighter.

Sometimes it's all about throwing something out there and letting gravity and the winds work their magic.

Hole 8 McClure in Tulsa, Ok. Its my longest at 405 ft. it actually flew the way I pictured it in my head. only one with my dad there to.

2005 octoberfriz. hole 15 at the ocean. its a totally blind shot. a giant row of hay bails blocking the basket. when I hit it I thought it was someone else putting on another hole. one guy in my group got excited and I said no way. we walked around the hay bails and it was sitting in the basket. it was my only tourney ace and won me $100!!

My favorite ace was my first. 9/6/06, playing a round before a mini. It was here at our home course, 378 slight downhill (plays about 360). I threw a Star Teebird with a slght anhyzer angle and it flexed back right into the right side of the chains. I didn't know what to say at first. Out of all the holes here at our course, that one was very low on my list to be my first one aced. It has been awhile since I have hit metal, hoping for number 3 soon. I want a putter ace pretty badly.

I've had many aces but my favorite was made by a friend of mine, Steve Waters. Summer doubles, old hole #15 at the UNC Chapel Hill course. This was about a 230' hole, woods on both sides (40' wide fairway) and then it opens up after 200' and the basket is up to right 30' out in the open and 20' to the right (up a slight hill) off of the tree line. Steve pulls out his beat Z-Predator, takes no time at all and hucks a high thumber that rises above the top of the pine trees; it curls towards the basket, hits the ground two feet to left and bounces off the ground into the basket, classic. I started practicing my thumbers after that.

My friend hit his second tournament ace in 3 tournaments with a thumber bounce in. It was on the 3rd hole of a 3 round tournament and I just happened to be playing with him. I would have been mad if we hadn't got first and second place in that tournament.

My favorite Ace is not my furthest but definetely the best timing. In Live Oak, TX we hold a Civilian/Military Disc Golf Tournament and we (Disc Golfers) show the sport basics to Military Personnel E-6 and below. After we spent around 20 minutes showing them the fundamentals of disc golf, we went to a hole and they all had a CTP for a prize. After they all threw, the disc golfers threw at the same basket. I get up to the Tee Box and let it go....ACE!!! :eek: There had to be more than 60 witnesses that saw my Ace. I had it signed by everyone there and have it hanging on my wall. :)

Last year there were a couple of cool fund-raiser tournies for the Beaver State Fling NT. One of them was played using the Modified Stableford scoring system. In that system, a birdie is worth 2 points and an ace is worth 5 points.

The leader had parked the final hole of the first round, and the birdie would have put him 5 points ahead of me. So I said, "Well, I think I'll go ahead and ace this last hole and just tie everything up." Sure enough, it goes in.

A couple of weeks later, during one of my rounds at the Beaver State Fling, a course marshall walks up to me and hands me an envelope full of money. It was from the ace-pot that I forgot to get. I don't know if there is anything questionable about getting an envelope full of money during a tourney round, but the look on my card-mates was priceless!

My last round 2005 Am worlds at Flagstaff at Thorpe, hole 10 my third tournament ace, ..... I wanted to have at least one good round, and had proceeded to blow it, get a double and a single bogie after getting five pars in a row. I then shanked my next drive and had about a 120 foot shot through a narrow slot in some thick trees, and nailed the birdie. next, I had a huge drive, and almost bidied the hardest hole on the course (9), I was so jacked up on adrenaline after that I pretty much ran to the next tee, and as my group was still walking up they gave me the go ahead to drive, and I slammed a buzz for a 210' ace on ten. On hole 11, I was still so jacked up I blew my drive, and my approach and then floated in a par save from 100+ feet away. I got par the rest of the way and shot a +1 (55), which was only one of two rounds that I shot that was under 60 for the tourny..... :DLast week I hit hole one to start, and hole 18 to finish at my friends private course weekly! Two in a day and walked away with some extra cash! That was my 52nd ace since I started in 1996.... I love this game!

It's a 10 foot wide fairway on a 270' hole, lined on both sides by 40 ft pines. Beautiful hole, gotten it another time since then.

At BG a few weeks ago. Kid I went down with hits dead center of chains on his first holes of the tourney, hole one at kerieakes, and it pops out. He tells me about it a few hole later. I started on hole three so nearing the end of my round step up to tee on hole one. I think to myself, this would be awesome to hit this hole, and I did. We had played the maceman doubles the day before so when my friend finishes the round,and before I told him, he is walking in Maceman says something like, "it was too bad your ace run fell out but at least your partner's stuck!!"

At BG ams also. I was on top card of A pool and with 4 holes to go I ace hole 15 at whites to put me in the final 9. If it wasnt for the ace I wouldnt of been in the final 9.

I was in the same group as Gaige. That was a great start to bg ams. The worst thing about it is that he missed the putt. Both of you guys did good. Good Times!!

he JRauch did you get you ace money in the mail yet?

Hey - I had one today too!! My first ever ace at Morley Field, after playing there for a few years now. Hole #16, B position, 240 ft. straight shot - FLX Buzz. Morley was as packed as usual so there was a pretty large crowd to see it.

But I still lost the bag-tag round to my son...

During a tournament there was an extra hole with a mini basket on it about 130 feet away. The player with the lowest overall score on the hole for both rounds would win $20.

I plucked out an Innova rubber mini and letter rip. All I wanted was to park it, but when I let it go I knew I had thrown it too hard ... yet the flight looked perfect. It was a fast, nearly line drive with a slight hyzer that almost knocked that basket off of the cooler it was sitting on. CHING! Freaking beautiful ace.

So now I step up to the same hole during the next round and that time I drove with a bit less power and parked it 5 feet away from the basket. I missed the 5 foot putt. *sigh*
But I still won the $20 with the total score of 4.

maybe a few months after the 2006 bowling green ams when gateway gave out those budweiser stamp red elements, i took this, a sabre and a wizard out to hobson grove park in bowling green. so i show up at the course to meet kevin rarick to play a round or two. so while he's putting and standing directly behind 10's basket, i just randomly step up, with sunscreen all over my hands and bury a super rubbery element right in his **** face. funniest of all is that kevin had just recently been sponsored by gateway and looked as if he was on the verge of tears. the fact that some stupid low life INNOVA golfer blew the chains up right in his mouth with some random gateway disc just absolutely made my day.

sorry kevin but you deserved it.

does anyone out there know of two aces during the same round of a pdga tourney at any level? a tulsa local{marq lewis} has done it this year hitting #5 and #17 at duncan lake hillclimber. #5 was his first ever tourny ace then followed that up with #2 tourny ace on #17.

I read a small story in the on-tour section of the disc glof world mag, about a guy who got two on Saturday and two on sunday in the same tournament for a total of four. I can't remember the name at the moment....

Oh! I also know that Ernie Valdez #6998 got two in the same day at the 2005 NorCal series Championships at New Hogan reservior. I think it was hole #8 and #15
