      13 years. Then I got my 2nd one about 8 months later. Witness on the first one, no witness on the 2nd, but if I was going to lie about it I would just say i've got about 40 of them. ( I also got a practice shot ace last spring when I threw my drive, then took out another disc I had recently bought and wanted to try out and i'll be damned if it didn't go in. But I don't count that as one of my "real" aces.) I come close all the time, but I guess i'm just not meant to ace much.

            My first two aces were at McIver in the original set up (which dates me quite a bit). Hole 3 followed by hole 4 (not the same round). My 2 favorite aces are Hole 13 in Anchorage Alaska (310' guarded by 2 fir trees...it was a line drive that went straight at the basket from the start and never went over 10' high) and a 335' ace at Willamette Park (in an Oregon Series) who's basket was out of view and had to be told it went in by the group ahead.

                  for me it was about 6-8 months, but that was playing almost everyday. and in my book an ace is an ace, doesnt matter if anybody else sees it or not because im not trying to get aces to "prove myself" to anybody. for me getting an ace is all about Personal satisfaction, not about "did you see that?!" or " I have (blank) number of aces!!!" the only thing i like to brag about is that with my first ace, before i threw i turned to my wife and said "hold that thought while i throw a hole in one" then WANG! disc went in the basket!!! that was a great time!

                      I'm used to this being the end result of somebody asking to hold their beer.

                        I had played for nearly 5 years without an ace. The next 4 months: ace in New Orleans, ace in Albuquerque, ace in Flagstaff, ace in Medford, OR! The previous month I had my first chain out in Mobile, AL.
                        With that being said, there was a clear progression in my game. 1) Throw far enough/accurate enough to regularly reach the basket. 2) get lucky and hit chains, then get an ace. 3) Improved my game and learned that aces are not really the best DG shots. 4) Improved more and try to land near the basket, not fly by (duh). 5) Get pissed because I rarely ace anymore!!!!

                        first world problem: too good to ace? Ha!

                              I got my 1st ace within a month of starting. I owned one yellow champion beast & I threw it in at Juel old hole 3 right in front of a lady on a horse who I elected not to wait for. Later that week I lost that disc across the creek.

                              I believe that was in 2006. Since then I've thrown zero aces. I've hit basket way too many times & solid chains plenty of times. Am I cursed by not waiting for the lady or losing the disc? Or was it the fact that I didn't give a dollar to the 1st ace I saw on a doubles card that same year (same hole Juel old 3)?

                              I have thrown some practice aces (multiple drives one hole) but those don't count. Solo aces should definitely count if your playing a no extra shots (scoring) round.

                              When will my next ace be?
