We set up a nine-hole course down on the farm this past weekend. It's a course layout I have used several times in the past. We played the course three times and on the third time through Jeff Campbell - aka Soup, hit hole #3. It was about 260-280 up hill and blind, behind a barn. the basket was one of the "octopus" baskets donated to the farm by the Army Major, Matt Ambrose, that had the course on Fort Leavenworth with them.
Anyway, that's the first ace hit at the farm. The throw was a big hyzer and looked great all the way. The disc dropped behind the barn and Jeff said "I think I heard bungee". The "chains" on these baskets are rubber rope. I don't think he hit the rope. I think the disc just dropped into the tire and stopped. The scene was awesone. The basket hangs from a big sycamore tree and has a beat up 1960 Ford 1-ton truck as an obstacle to the left of the basket. Several of us had to throw from the bed of the truck after our discs went under.
There is some great land at the farm for disc golf. The next time we have a disc golf weekend down there I hope more people can make it.
Way to go Soup!! I hope you enjoyed the hamburger in lieu of the $5 spot.
