They all dropped in the bucket, but who did it best?

Ultiworld Disc Golf’s 2019 Ace of the Year voting is presented by Friction Gloves; all opinions are those of the author. Check out our review of Friction’s DG Gloves here.
The 2019 professional season was one for the books, filled with shots causing us to pick our jaws up off the floor. And there were so many, we figured we’d enlist Ultiworld Disc Golf readers to help us decide on the season’s best.
With that in mind, we are proud to present the second of four bracket challenges to close out the year. We’ve culled highlights from the sport’s best media providers and broken them down into four categories: Ace of the Year, Roller of the Year, Air Shot of the Year, and Putt of the Year. After each bracket is decided, the winners will battle in a four-way, College Football Playoff-style bracket that will determine the 2019 Shot of the Year.
Pick up to five shots for Ace of Year to make it to the semifinals. And if you’re having fun with this, feel free to share the love on social media.
