Landed my first ace today on #8--pretty happy with the decision to try out the weekly for the first time today.

Is it true I have to bring a keg next week?  Might be tough to carry it on MUNI but duty calls I guess.

Just don't focus

Postby jeremiah » Mon Sep 03, 2007 10:26 am

:o Niko Devries smashed an ace on 10b this sunday.  Small payout, but killer ace.  He was directing pedestrians away from the fairway due to the hippiefest, or whatever it was that brought a million tye-dyed Jerry-atrics tromping through tourney on sunday, sprinted back, grabbed a disc, and hurried to throw before the fairway was overrun by the dazed and confused again.  No skip, bounce, or even ever a question of if it was going in.  This is the third time someone in my group has aced 10b.  I'm not playing this hole with other people anymore.  It's getting too expensive.

Ditto to Jeremiah's post.  It was an awesome one to watch.  Niko followed up his performance by hitting the pin with his drive on 14.  When you're on....

Congrats on the Ace, Niko!  Now I wish I would have braved the labor day bridge closure so I could have witnessed it myself.

What happened?

Postby Niko » Tue Apr 29, 2008 6:01 am

I know there have been aces since mine..

One I have to give a shout and mad props for is Aurelius Lewicki's back to back aces.  Two weeks in a row on hole 9 in tourney play... Wow!

Who Else is out there and not getting listed?  Call them out!
