Also, what are you using to try to throw the hyzer line? Lots of golfers make the mistake of only using really overstable discs for that shot, which kills their distance. Have you tried something slower and less stable, such as a TL or Teebird?

Yes, but it's harder keeping the hyzer plane especially when its windy out. Pro or star destroyer is about as stable as I've gone on it. I throw tp swords now. I've seen guys with big arms park it with c-pd2's but that's another story tho.

If it's that far back in, even with a perfect roller you'd have a long putt. Either an overhand shot of a very big forehand flex shot directly at the target.

Or, just shoot for par and call it a hole

When I do attempt to throw an eagle or teebird on this hole the flight looks nice, it rides a smooth hyzer line up over the tree, then it stalls out. Doesn't go into the trees, but stays out 50' short. I just can't understand it. I just lose my power when it comes to these shots.

Well, I can always take the par and I usually do. I would like to birdie this hole just once though.

Backhand cut roller with something stable, like an Ape or something.

Something i used to not think of is this. When throwing a hyzer line, lets say you have to go 25' to the right of center, and then you bring it 25' back. That turns your 327' into about 365' shot. That's likely a disc-ing up difference.

I used to be short on all my hyzer tosses until someone mentioned this to me. It never crossed my mind, until someone brought it up to me. It seems obvious now, but i played for a few years before someone mentioned it to me.

Maybe your eagle/teebird, just isn't enough disc for the extra 40' of the toss, or you aren't throwing the neccessary hardness level. If it's the first, try a longer disc with similar ratings to the eagel/teebird. Or if you aren't throwing your hardest, maybe try a little extra on a few to see if that works.

Throw that hyzer shot, practice it and get your nose down. That's a shot I use a lot and is the absolute most predictable one for that situation.
