The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I got my first ace yesterday. It was kind of under wierd circumstances. I have been having shoulder problems lately, and decided that after playing multiple rounds last weekend, I was going to stick strictly to putting until at least Thursday. I really plan to take off how ever much time I need to get my shoulder completely healed. I talked with my mentor the other day, and he said I NEVER have finished with my shoulder level. I torque it like crazy. We are going to work on that when it gets better.

Anyways, so I went to work on putting yesterday between class and a service project. Mostly 30 and in, but as I got more warmed up, I backed up to about 100 ft. So I was getting kind of bored. I decided to throw the short tees on the hole I was putting on- hole 9 at Bethel University's disc golf course. 167 ft. I throw my putter about 225, and with very good form. I don't torque my shoulder with putter throws. First one I released felt really good. I put a slight hyzer on my Aviar, which is NEVER in my bag during a round of dg. Ironic. I watch it hyzer in and bang! Chains! It was indeed a great feeling, even though no one witnessed it and it was while practicing (not throwing a full round). I quit after that one and called it a day.

I talked to my mentor later and told him about it. His response was "I thought you said NO disc golf." I reminded him putting only. So he still gave me crap for it. It wasn't quite "putting", but I did use my "putter". Haha.

Hey, if you threw it from a tee and it goes in the basket that's an ace.Way to go, now that you broke the seal, you don't have that to worry about.

Congrats on the ACE! That's awesome. I should have said that getting an ace is probably the best medicine for shoulder pain! (although I don't speak from experience). Let me know when you're near Toledo, we'll play a round.
