Over the Water Disc Golf Ace

Wanna see a Disc Golf Ace?

Technically it was a cubby ace, and even more technical maybe its not an ace at all since I wasn’t keeping score. No matter what you call it, it was fun.

I have been planning on making this hole for a long time. At my house I have a bunch of holes I play with one basket. I’ll play the same green from multiple places, move the basket and play a few more. This over gap over the water shot though was daunting because I thought it would be a lot of work to get good footage. You have to bring the basket over, set up the cameras etc. I was partially right too. In fact it took a lot more time to get the basket over the pond than it did to get the footage I was after.

I don’t know the exact distance of the shot but I guessed it was a little under 300 feet from one shoreline to the other. I was about 70 feet from my shore and the basket is about 25 feet from the other shore. Also the overall elevation is slightly downhill.

The first shot I really wanted to ace but didnt want to lose a good disc in water before I really knew the distance. I threw the Zombee and it came up short. I could have pushed it with more turn and got there but knew I could go with a nice hyzer with a fairway. I used a Prodigy 400 F5 that is slightly stable for an F5. I threw it high and wide and it came in nice.

I took the picture in this post from behind the basket looking back on the route the disc took. It came in tight to the wood line and it was perfect spacing.

My favorite part is the pause and I put my hand on my hip waiting

Here is the video…
