Hey -- finally one of my photos made the course of the day photo/hole Sorry to disappoint Frank, but being a lefty I have to throw an anny and usually use my Stratus.

After hearing that its probably not 175' I would be tempted to use my Ion but; the other day I actually putted with my Core because I knew underpowering it somewhat nose up would give it a good fade and I had a big bush in front of the basket with a tree just to the right with their branches slightly touching each other leaving just a small gap between branches at about 75' away. Bush was overgrown left far enough to where trying the anny line would give me a 10' putt after that throw at best. I nailed it.

Fiance called luck but I had called the shot ahead of time. I'll admit that it was luck that only a hair up or down and the branches would have caught me but dont know about the overall shot being luck seeing as it was exactly what I looked to do.

I believe the person who measured the distances for this course is likely the same person who measured the fairways for Dorton Park. Here's something to give some legitimacy to my claim that this hole is not 175'. The sign for #4 at Dorton Park says the basket is 120' but I measured it with a wheel and it's 79'. It makes me wonder how in the world they came to 120'.

I think they just eyeballed the distances; they certainly didn't pace it out. Unfortunately, they were very poor judges of distance.

Then if it's really that short, I'll go with my putter, which I typically use for anything under 400ft. The Roc, which I usually push out towards 500 would be way too much disc.
