The CHEENGZ I-One™ Ace Challenge

Open to class 100/150/160/170 CHEENGZ I-One Discs only. This is a tournament concept where the competition is virtual and the disc is the cost of entry. Submit your Ace video and images at www.CHEENGZ.com to confirm your entry in the race.

Please be respectful of all other regular players when competing for this challenge at your course. We suggest choosing a course and a time when there is low traffic so you do not interfere with other people’s enjoyment of the sport.

Rules

Challenger must compete on an existing Disc Golf course with signage that displays the distance of the hole being played.

Any single throw from the tee pad into a basket counts. The ace can happen in practice sessions or during a round.

The videos must be seamless from start to finish, filmed from beginning to end, with no cuts in the footage or editing.

The basket must be visible from the tee pad and the view of the basket cannot be obstructed from the view of the camera at any time during the filming of the throw.

The camera person/persons must identify the course with a picture of the disc course sign showing the name of the course or park, a picture of the tee pad played with the sign, a picture of the sign showing the distance of the hole, and a picture of the fairway from the tee pad.

The camera person should position themselves (ideally) behind, and to the left of right-handed players, or behind, and to the right of left-handed players so they can keep the challenger, fairway and basket in the frame for the entire throw.

Video submissions must contain the following elements to be eligible.
Challenger showing the I-One disc to the camera to confirm it is an I-One.
Challenger throwing on the tee pad.

Seamless video of the throw and flight of the disc to the basket.
Your run-up to the basket to retrieve the disc showing the CHEENGZ I-One disc is resting in the basket.

Entries that do not contain all of the qualifying steps as outlined will be disqualified from the challenge without exception. You will be contacted within 72 hours to confirm your entry If you are determined the winner by our three-judge panel

The disc should be signed by any witness of the successful ace throw and take a selphy!

#1 Joel Bryant – First I-One™ Ace with a prototype – This throw was not eligible for the challenge. It was a demo filmed for this challenge, the video above. Joel and Bill threw the first round of six discs and I knew one was going to Ace. Three rounds later, with less than 36 total throws, there were two metal hits, and then Joel hit the first Ace with an I-One.

The 175′-199′ Distance Division is now Closed

Tips on Competing in this Challenge

Find three friends that are interested in competing with you in this challenge to help you film and compete. You can use each other’s discs to help you dial in your accuracy on the hole being played, and they can help film and speed the return of discs to the tee (this is a race). You can also practice in a field throwing your discs to each other to increase your accuracy through practice sessions. Aim for a root beer belly. The distance at which you can consistently land your disc in your partner’s hands without them moving is the distance division you should zone in on for this competition.

Maximum distance is achieved with a Hyzer Flip. The distance accuracy of the I-One will be determined by your arm speed, snap, and release. The more friends you have competing with you, the more discs you each have to throw to try and win the bounty. 

While filming with more than one phone or video camera is not required, additional seamless video angles will help you confirm your Ace was properly filmed and your entry validated. It also makes you look cooler on social media after we edit the videos together. All videos must be seamless from start to finish or they will be disqualified. Only one camera is required to film the disc and throw from the tee pad. Additional cameras can be positioned behind the basket to catch the incoming ace from another angle. Every phone or camera you use is an extra backup that ensures your shot is filmed and you are eligible to win the Bounty.
