The pin was in the short position but it got moved back up to the island right after. As with all aces, a little luck combined with some skill made for a fantastic outcome. Generally, throwing for aces is not a smart play. It was only my 6th ace in 31 years...guess I'll never catch Cubby.
That settles it - a pretty great shot! I've only been to LW a few times, and have only seen the basket on the island. Is it close to the road when its in the short position?
