Aces

I can’t help it, I’m a nerd.  I’ve documented all the aces I’ve thrown.

For the purposes of the list, an “ace” is defined as the first shot from a tee during the course of a round.  In other words, shots that go in as a part of throwing multiple shots (“emptying the bag”) don’t count.  I count aces on object targets and aces in which I was playing alone separately from aces on baskets that were witnessed by other players.

Here’s the list followed by some stats.
