It wasn't quite Maple Hill Golds, but an ace is an ace

Paul McBeth is no stranger to snagging practice aces on video. He hit two on back-to-back days warming up for the Idlewild Open last year.
Getting ready for the MVP Open at Maple Hill earlier today, he was at it again. Stepping up and tossing what looks like a pretty stable midrange straight through the gap and into the chains with some speed.
The video appeared on Hunter Grayum’s Instagram page. It must have been a treat for the Junior division player — who finished third in the under-8 division at the PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championship and the United States Junior Disc Golf Championship this year — to take a round in with the four-time world champion, let alone watch him throw one in from right there on the tee (you can see him give McBeth a high-five right after the ace).
It looks like the group was out on the Maple Hill red course, on hole 2, and at the video’s end, McBeth sums up what it’s like to step up and smash the chains.
“It just feels like a two-minus.”
