Today, an unfortunate chain of events led up to my first ace today. First, my friends and I drove up to disc golf world for some new discs, on the way deciding that we wanted to play at waterworks instead of rosedale. When we got to waterworks, we started our scramble, and in the middle of #5, my friend realized he had lost his keys. We played through to #8 and started to retrace our steps. After searching through once, we decided to keep playing. After #10, we put our bags up, grabbed a few discs each, and started at #1 in hopes that we would find the keys playing through again. Halfway through #2, my friend Jordan had a bad toss, yelled heads up, and my friend Grant looked down and there were his keys. At #3, we chose to try out speed golf for a few holes before we had to leave. I chucked my stalker into the woods right away, and spent 10 minutes looking while my friends finished the hole and then came back to help me find it. I then recorded a 6 on that hole after hitting several more trees. #4, I stepped up and threw my same Orange 174g Elite-z Stalker. It was heading straight for the hole, but I thought it would be long. Just then it hit the chains, fell in, and we all went crazy. I've had a couple object aces on my homemade course, but those do not compare at all to a real ace. I had chills and I got one of the best feelings I've ever had. Witnesses were my friends Grant, Zach, Jordan, and Troy.
After almost exactly 1 year of disc golf, I can occasionally drive over 400 feet, my putting has improved greatly, and now I have my first ace. Here's to hopefully many more good years of disc golf.
