Tunnel/Low Shot

I looking for advice on how to throw a mid/fairway disc low and completely flat. I have to basket at my home course that is placed within multiple lines of pine trees. Every time I tee off at said hole my disc hyzers just enough to clip the bottom of the trees. Any advice or disc suggestion would help.

Thanks

It might be a disc selection you are having. If you are throwing something stable or over stable tunnels can be tough. I usually throw a neutral or under stable mid. A light Core or Warship work well for me on a low line. And depending on the hole sometimes it works better to throw a under stable driver and hyzer flip it. It just depends on the length and what the ceiling allows on that hole.

I tend to just throw a TL, Buzzz, or Roc, low and straight and not at 100% of power.

How long is the hole? How tall are the trees? And what course are you playing?

I can start a forehand shot a lot lower than I can a backhand.
Have you tried that?

The hole is number 7 at UW-BC, 382 feet and the basket is to the right of the tee. My first shot is normally a nice anhyzer that line me up with the basket. My 2nd and 3rd shot get clipped by the trees. The bottom limbs are about 6 to 7 feet high.

Understable driver, lean into the throw, keep it looooooow. You can get within putting distance with a nice hyzerflip that keeps straight most of the flight.
