I have the only roller ace in Oz Tour history.
Hole 13 Concordia in 97.
Witnesses:Garrison,Mattingly,Handsacker.
The only other Oz Tour ace was a 98 moonlight doubles
air shot where I said I was going to knock the flashlight
out of the basket and damn near did.
When you have to choose between your woman and discgolf,don`t be stupid-choose the discgolf.

I almost had a roller ace in McPherson last year cant remember what hole exactly but it was a low ceiling shot that I FH rolled and the disc hit a tree root and bounced just to the right of the basket. I also facemasked a basket that day as well.

I don't have a roller ace, but I have something more rare than a regular ace.

Flick shot roller that rolled around the basket and then leaned on the pole almost vertically.

46 Aces


Dam,

My list is a lot shorter:

Albert-Oakland Front Course (Columbia)
#13 Right (142') - Roc
#13 Right (142') - Aurora MS
#13 Right (142')- Classic Roc
#13 Right (142')- XD (scoobee thumber)

McNaughton Park (Pekin, IL)
#2 Blue (321') - Small Bead Aviar (it's sharp downhilll) (during the Peoria Open in 1996...also my first ace!)

Miami University (Oxford, OH)
#2 (245') - MRX (but it was during a practice round at the Worlds in 1998....pretty cool...lots of witnesses right in front of the parking lot)

Salina
#2 North Side (358') Z-XL (Smitty and the then-soon-to-be-wife saw this one!)

Olathe
#2 on the island (260') Star TL (skip ace during Olathe Open last year)

Only 8 aces....sigh. Strange that they were all on hole 2 or hole 13. Oh, and and all with a different model of disc.

I began playing disc golf on July 17, 2003. I have gone 5 years, 0 months, and 11 days, oh and probably something around 7 hours without hitting an ace. A spell which came to an end at exactly 4:35 this afternoon.

I hit a short tee to short placement (sign said 144' but it looked longer) at McNish Park in Fairbury, Nebraska with a max weight X Buzz. No witnesses, but I about startled an elderly woman to death with my screaming.

Not the most impressive of aces, but I'll take it. :D

Wow. Congrats on that!
:D
:!:

Similar story: I have only been in NE one day of my life and I hit an ace at McNish Park. It was my 2nd ace, back in'00, when Fairbury was on the OZ tour. I think it was #7, short to short. Right before the tourney started.

1st Ace was 12-17-97...after 6.5 months of playing & with a Cheetah...and get this, 3 hole #'ing systems' ago = so, real-real-real old #17 Centennial, the extinct pin by the tennis courts; now the skatepark.

Have had only 5 since - the last 3 were $$ & during an Olathe league '00, an Olathe tourney '02 & the Friday night dubs at the Frontier Open '05.

...have been working on a WyCo Ace ever since...playing around 150 leagues there the last 5-6 years. :wink: :?

Yellow Z Predator (Hole #2 Jones West)
A great shot is when you try it, a good shot is when you don't have the guts to pull it off.
