Neep help with this, please.

This hole is 327' and I know that is not a hard goal. I can hit that distance no problem. The issue here is trying to hyzer and get to the pin without going too wide to avoid the 10' tall tree in front of the pad. Alot of people go up over the tree but I can't throw high enough and nose down to do this. I can keep up with most everyone's drives, but once we get here everyone's parked under the basket and I'm stall out halfway or far out to the right 50' or more. I'm either throwing my Sword or Saint on this hole. Should I keep trying to just go over the
small tree while trying to maintain nose down?

Note: the pin is up almost past the main tree line on the left. You have to walk out to the right to see it.


Any advice would help, thanks!

How's your forehand? It's a little unconventional, but if the backhand hyzer isn't getting you there, a big forehand anny might be more effective.

Forehand cut, or sky, roller, and that terrain looks ideal for it. A forehand anny would be an impressive shot.

Instead of throwing a high hyzer, have you tried throwing a high stall shot?

Throw something fast, and stable to slightly understable high and flat up and over the trees on the right. When it slows down and stalls the disc will drop and fade to the left. When done properly, it will give you more distance than a pure hyzer line.

Like this (sort of):

Red is the pure hyzer line
Blue is the stall

this is cool but the lines need to be over the small tree. The tree line where the pin is on is closer to the left edge of the picture. Same line though.

OIC, I wasn't sure where the basket was supposed to be.
