“I think that was the first I’ve ever celebrated an ace,” said Brian Earhart. “That felt so good. That was the perfect shot.”
Earhart is no stranger to getting an ace on film. Check his tag on Ultiworld to see shots he’s hit like at the Glass Blown Open. This past season at the DGPT Silver Series event, the Mid-America Open at Harmony Bends in Columbia, Missouri, Earhart cashed chains again on hole 16.
At 231 feet, this ace from Earhart is more than 150 feet shorter than his hole-in-one in Emporia, but it’s flight is something to behold. The lefty flexes a Buzzz midrange on a forehand line uphill through a smattering of trees. A slight fade at the end of the flight catches metal and falls into the basket.
