Roll this Hole?
Hole 12 at N. Asheboro park, NC.


It's 325' long and the basket sits atop a knoll. There's an almost always swampy strip running diagonally towards the creek (technically it is the creek) but it shouldn't bother a roller. This hole is really annoying because the branches hanging down make it a low ceiling and if you hit them they smack your drive straight down. I'm getting tired of trying to sneak an air shot just under them (or hitting that tree in the middle) and wondering if a roller would make it easier to get most of the way there.

Yeah that may be the right call.

From the pic I think I would try to throw a low hyzer flip that tracks right and finishes left. Patriot for me. Or a forced flex with my rival.

I wouldn't roll it.
I'd probably throw a beat in star TeeBird on a slight hyzer to the left of the skinny tree in the middle and let it pop up and glide for a bit or throw a Star Wraith on a hyzer to the right of the skinny tree in the middle and hope for a little uphill skip at the end of the flight.
Tight gaps right off the tee box like this can be tricky. But, instead of "aiming" for the basket, I try and figure out the right line and pick the disc that'll fly that way. Then, I focus all my attention on just hitting the gap and let the disc take care of the rest.
People spend so much time trying to make discs do what they're not supposed to do naturally. If you throw the right disc and let it do what it is supposed to do, your round gets a lot easier.

I have a hard time setting down a roller that close to the tee and having any accuracy, though I've seen some players do so with great success. A FH roller might be easier to get through those first trees if you can get the distance.

I agree with mashnut's assessment. If you can generate the power a FH roller looks like it would be a viable option. That little scrawny tree looks annoying btw.

Kinda looks like a lot of work to roll it. Highest percentage for me would probably be a low line drive with a Teebird or Boss. Not a lot of power, just let the disc do the work.

I'm thinking that the creek would screw the roller's path off course. I'd flip a Leo here and take my 3.

Edit: I didn't notice how low those branches hang. An Amp ripped low should get me close enough for an upshot...still looking at a 3.

Doesn't look like I'd roll that, it's either a FH or BH airshot down the middle.

Vorpaljesus 09-20-2013 01:17 AM

These are the kinds of holes that make me want to improve my FH game

GripEnemy 09-20-2013 01:38 AM

As a prodiminantly FH roller, I still would more than likely hyzerflip a QJLS low and if I mess up (shoot too low), Take an easy three. Pictures are always decieving though.

EIT: If it isn't too wet and you can judge the bounce off of the initial landing (getting really close) maybe you could jump the "creek" with one. Had to mention it looking again.
