WATCH: A.J. Risley’s Sidearm Ace At Sabattus Disc Golf

He smothers and covers the chains

While playing a casual round on the Owl Course at Sabattus Disc Golf in Maine, A.J. Risley pulled out an even more casual forehand to ace the short, left-turning hole 6.

Of course, the next best thing to getting an ace is getting to watch Risley react to his own in disbelief.

Actually, watching Kevin Jones celebrate as much as, if not more than, Risley may be the best thing.

Risley threw a Hybrid Warden, unfortunately not his signature waffle stamp, to the house on the 189-foot dogleg. He can be heard on the video saying it’s only his second-ever forehand ace, and first ace caught on video.

When Ultiworld Disc Golf reached out to see if Risley was working on his forehand in preparation for the woods at the MVP Open at Maple Hill he joked, “warming up the forehand for 2019. I’d like to actually cash at Maple Hill.”

Jones was in peak celebratory form here, likely because he got plenty of practice in celebrating this weekend after he won the Vacationland Open A-Tier in Turner, Maine over Garrett Gurthie and Ricky Wysocki. Risley finished in 7th.
