Did you go the conventional anny route or sneak something down the tunnel to the right?

I'd try to roll it. If you've got something super understable that you can lay down for a roller below head height then it could work. Depends if you're trying get a birdie or play for par. Like others have said a FH roller may be a solid option as well.

well if all you are going for is a safe par by just trying to miss the branches id have no problem with setting a forearm roller through the gap on the right and let it flip towards the basket. one would want to use something just slightly stable so it holds the line for a bit then turns.

i've taken the day to consider it. no, i wouldn't roll the hole, i'd play a moderately overstable disc like my C-FD on a slight anny with nose up, possible skip opportunity. that "creek" would just slow down and knock around anything worth rolling.

flippy putter perhaps, that low ceiling is gonna mess with your roller release anyway. i say blast a line drive hyzer with your firebird and grab a skip or hyzer to flat a teebird or TL up the middle.. if anything throw pin high right and putt a lil uphill you can bang it.

I'd try to hit a gap backhand. I have a hard time getting a backhand roller down that fast and I would fear the little creek messing with it too much. Either way I tried it though, I'd probably hit a tree and get to practice my long approach.

I'd throw my slightly understable driver, get it to go through the gap on the left, turn, then fade back into the hill a little bit at the end.

My thoughts: You either go for a 2 or a 3.

If you want the two, you're best bet is throwing a hyzer flip. It flies out there under the branches, flips up and gains a little altitude, and sits down on the hill. But as you noted, you're taking a big risk of hitting a trunk/branch and looking at a 4 very quickly. Even so, I seem to usually avoid a 4 going with the hyzer flip. Where is that sidewinder that you've aced hole 6 with throwing a hyzer flip?

The other option is going for a smart 3, in which you just throw the roller you are asking about. Odds are you will roll a good ways out there but not up the hill, and you'll have a 50-60 foot approach for your second shot.

Whatever you choose, best wishes and have fun.
