    What if it slipped through the cage and into the basket? Would that have counted?

    Re run… letz see that barbsy ace though.

    The only disc I've seen enter a basket from the side is a 10m brick. A steady ed could probably do it too.
    Wicked shot Paul!

  4. This sort of instance used to count years ago, so long as you retrieved your disc while it was still stuck in the side. If it fell out and onto the ground however, you'd be tapping in your 2. This would lead to players running down the fairway to grab their disc as soon as possible. Good stuff, but I'm glad they changed the rule later.

  5. I remember around 2008, on the PDGA forums there was a big controversy whether or not a shot like that would count as holed out because after all, it was suspended by the basket. Apparently it doesn't count 😉

    I am sorry, that is still an ace in my books, it was being held by the basket. I have won money with a skip ace like that.

  7. It would be so cool to have you guys try our course here at riverbend in roseburg oregon or wistlers bend outside of roseburg oregon id love to meet you guys and play a round

  9. Ryan Filegar says:

  10. New golfers never believe me when I tell them there's a rule regarding this. Glad it was caught on film!
