    First Ace in 20 year career!!

    My wife (the bomber) and I were at White River on Sunday 1-10-10. We have found that playing some disc golf together is a great way to spend some time together and enjoy some outdoor activity. I am usually found at Juel park in Redmond but we are venturing out more now. I must say that I thought I was getting pretty good wandering around Juel and basically playing scratch golf since spring. I was not prepared for the awsome challenges that White River presents. The bomber played her usual cautious game and scored amazingly well. I hit many trees and it got to the point that I was even missing shots through even the larger tunnels. Sometimes my balance and rhythm just goes away I guess. Anyway since it was our first time the other players were so nice in helping us along and the larger groups sent us forward on our way. We loved the course! Well, we were in front of a group of 6 or so and behind a group of 3 on the 15th tee. In a nutshell I threw my Discraft Avenger well and it went in. I wondered if I would ever experience the ace. All of the guys around signed the disc and all of the hit trees and bad shots were history.

    It's fun to watch the expression on peoples faces right after I drive. Most people try to be diplomatic when they watch your shot, but I can see the poker faces on these people when they see my disc go wayyyy left. I can tell in thier mind thier thinking " wow, that was a bad shot" ,
    Then the disc starts to come back and they start smiling.

    Lakewood was crowded last Sunday, so I pretty much had an audience on every tee. On 15, a bunch of the regulars let me play through.
    I threw my Valk down my lefty line between the trees, all the guys went silent because they thought it was going in the canal, I said " don't worry guys".
    It turned back right after the deep trees and landed 30' below the basket.
    I picked up the duece easily.
    Its fun to mess with all the righties, and I'm a puny arm, it has to be even more fun for guys with big arms like Gwillim.
    well I tell you what Cap J I look forward to hanging with you a bit soon and watching some more of your awsome southpaw shots.!,.!

    Excellent.
    I remember the day not too long ago when you and I were the only ones out in the frozen tundra.
    Nows its just wet and gooey out there.
    It is still strange to me to play with a lefty. you expect to see the throw do one thing and it does the opposite.

    Now about that ace.
    Which tee were you playing from, and what disc did you throw ?

    Thanks for the tale and congrats on the ace.
    Yes there is nothing better that taking time together and heading out to enjoy the elements and fresh air together. We really don't even keep real close tabs on the score. For my 50th we went to the ocean and stopped in Elma and Aberdeen for rounds. BTW Aberdeen is torn up for some reason but the course in Elma is really cool. The bomber was such a good sport in the rain she looked so healthy. I made up a story that everytime you crossed the fenceline on this course you had to kiss. She bought it! We are now empty nesters so this time together has been awsome. we look forward to seeing you all out there.

    Yes Joshua you are just kind of standing on the tee pad saying to yourself what just happened? I cannot wait until you get your first because I know it is coming. Hopefully you will have alot of people around like I did. Well, keep enjoying yourself out there!!!!!

    Congrats!
    Welcome to the forum
    My good buddy Mr Illg had his very first ace on that same hole exactly one year ago to the day!
    We should call #15 at White River "The Cherry Popper"

    Congrats on your ace! I've had one in 6 years, and it can be elusive for some players.

    Also, welcome all the new peeps to this forum!

    Hmmm, lets see.
    I was the one who told you about this forum, and getting an ace, which many will never do, is a great excuse for a first post, especially after 20 years.
    So I think your ace is actually an indirect result of me telling you to check out this website.
    So I'm taking credit for it, it's my ace now.

    Oh, and congratulations ! , the way you were bombing stuff at Juel, I thought you would have an ace there first.

    Yes, what Scott, Emma, and Ol' bob said, congrats!

    I love hearing about the bomber's cautious game and how much ass she kicked playing it... would it be fair to call it consistent, tho, as opposed to cautious? Or perhaps good course management or even just smart golf?

    peace threw disc golf,
