Something is jacked up with the map and the distances. Nobody from Des Moines in here? Oh well, no biggie.

short would be... walk back to the long position to make the hole interesting.
You'd be surprised. I find this hole to be surprisingly difficult. The hill is just steep enough to be annoying and those branches don't always stay where they're supposed to so the gap from the long tee is harder than it looks. A worm burner that hits the hill is really hard to recover from and hitting any branches is probably worse. There are several trees scattered around after the gap so you aren't guaranteed to have a look at the basket even if you make it past the gap. You have to be both pretty good at line shaping and familiar with the hole to have any chance of a birdie and you need to be pretty good at controlling how high you throw just to get a decent lie for a second shot. Those both assume the wind is cooperating.

I usually throw a Gazelle and hope for the best.

Further proof that tunnel shots are one of the hardest shots to execute.

teebird rhbh- finish with rhyno unless I hit that first branch. Then I'll probably throw a hornet low and to the right and let it fade in. Then finish with a rhyno.
