Nov. 16, 2010: HOD

Gateway Park - West, Fort Worth, TX

Hole 7, Par 4, 485 feet



From the course map, it looks like it goes a ways, then hangs a right.

Hole #7 Tee: First half is wide open, second half is a tunnel shot from a small landing zone on the left, or a spike hyzer over the tree tops.

I'm throwing an Eagle, or maybe a Buzzz off the tee, then it's Wizard time.

Tough one, actually. Your first shot placement determines what your second shot is. I like holes like this because the open fairway is deceiving, thinking youcan just blast it out there.

Depending on the distance from the tee to the woods, I'm using either a Buzzz or Eagle to get to a good spot to set up my second shot down the tunnel.

Of course, the trees are not too high, driving a PD right toward the basket and going through or over could be an option. They look fairly thick, though.

You really need to place your drive, so to speak...and have a Plan B.

GooEarth says about 290. A bit shorter than I imagined.

This is a WAG:

RHBH a Z Stalker, approach with a Z Buzzz, Star Stingray, or Star Aviar. Polish it off with an R-Pro Aviar.

No wind or light tailwind this is a perfect nuke shot. I will throw straight off the teebox at a 35' apex slight hyzer release. Disc will flip up, glide right forever (hopefully just right of the pin) and then make a gradual fade back into the trees. Hopefully I get within 45' and have a chance for bird. If I don't park it ;-)

If the trees are denser than they look from the photo, I would likely throw a cyclone out, about 50' short of the tree line, then pick a thumber/RHBH Hyzer or RHFH Hyzer in to the pin.
