I've played this course a few times, and would absolutely throw a roller on it if I were a RHBH thrower. The fairway is pretty clean, and the downhill through the trees makes rollers pick up speed nicely for the turn up the hill.

Just as a note, trying a huge hyzer around the right really doesn't work.

As a LHBH thrower, though, this hole isn't much fun. I usually throw a Destroyer flat and low, hoping for a little skip/slide uphill (it doesn't work) to end up still outside the circle. It's a fairly routine 3 for me. :P

I would be tempted to throw a roller just looking at the picture, but as high as those guys were throwing them it seems like the ceiling isn't that big of an issue. Not sure if I'd be able to roll a renegade up there simply because my distance isn't that good on the ground. If I went with an air shot it would just be a pPD.

It is an option, but it adds about 80 feet to the shot.

I usually throw a FH helix and just try and get down the fairway. Getting 2 on this hole is challenging, so I generally just try to get the 3 and moove on to the next hole.

either attempt an Undertow roller or a low River shot.
PA4 from there.

YES! One I've played! I throw a beat roc roller for either position. Birdied this hole the last time I played in Portland this way.

The branches are low and the green slopes up dramatically at the end, there is very little chance of sneaking an air shot the length of the fairway in the short position, and no chance in the long. an air shot in the long position will leave you with a very difficult upshot/long putt.

Pretty sure I flicked a Firebird the last time I was here. I'd probably do the same with a Champ Gazelle or else backhand hyzer flip a Leopard. I've also seen people take the big hyzer route to the right, but I don't have the arm for that.
