Only chains and higher had a chance anyway..
Not true,  wedgies count!  Ask Dick, he witnessed me wedge a champion teebird into the basket frame for an ace on #17 at Swope during the '07 KCWO.

I've had one of those before too.  It was a short, blind spike hyzer that I was sure hit off the front of the cage (we heard it from the tee).  After walking to the top of the hill, I could see it had stuck in the side of the cage!  A teebird as well, I guess they're good for those kind of shots :).

Saw an ace at Am Worlds 03 on #5 at PC with a Roc stuck in the side of the basket. It counted! Basket and above for 51 is how I play it.

Now that's an accomplishment.  Getting a large diameter disc like a roc to get stuck in the basket takes some skill.

It hit very hard and the guy ran like his ass was on fire to get it before it popped out but it stayed until he got there. Of course that was a long time ago, I suppose it could have been something besides a Roc.

Yes Dick, thanks for reminding me! And the moral of the story... RUN as fast as you can and pull that sucker before it pops out. I have seen two other such aces (in tournament play) that both stayed until the thrower got there.

haha .. If I remember correctly you were standing there in shock for some time and I was like dood you better hurry up... hah

Mo Lewis, Rosedale #5 (up top) with a Discraft Force -- low RHBH turnover that came around and skipped RIGHT INTO THE CHAINS in the frozen tundra that was Ice Bowl 2009 Kansas City -- Home of the 2009 PDGA World Championships  :o

Wouldn't a RHBH turnover have gone to the right towards #6 tee pad? That was a RH hyzer placement yesterday wasn't it? Just having a hard time picturing this ace the way you described it.

Pretty sure it was 5 because CD mentioned the ace in another post.
Sounds like RHBH that hyzered then skipped in...

Oh, well that's different then. Now it makes perfect sense. Nice ace!

Picture it with me... RHBH Discraft Force... down the left side of the fairway, low hard turnover with a STABLE disc (yes, it takes skill  ;)  that straightened out REALLY nice for the skip. No trees, just frozen tundra... and CHAINS  ;D  It happened all so fast... I think my Roc took twice as long to get there, but it finished on the ground  :-X

Ace - DU - Hole #5
« Reply #43 on: February 02, 2009, 11:20:54 AM »
During our Sunday skins game Lance Scott Williams (Bear) Aced Down Under's #5 hole. 

He was actually spotting for everyone else (thankfully for me) and he climbed down the hill to help me find my disc.  He climbed up, grabbed his disc and threw a perfect shot!  From now on he has to run down and up a hill before he throws.

He was paid $5 from everyone.  Nice work!
