I know MJ has deuced every hole at the Nest except 12 and maybe 16. I think he has thrown one in for the 2 there as well.

i shorten my reach back and i also shorten my run up. To shorten your reach back, an easy way is to not turn your head off of your target line. You wont be able to stretch back and over reach which makes hitting lines tougher

probably like 80 or 90 ft

when i do play at elevation i use less stable and sometimes lighter discs. Thats the easiest way for me since i dont play at really high elevations very often

Hole 10 at Loriella is the long downhill water shot. Wait until you see new 16 on the Tiki. It is a "real" tunnel shot.
