Cannon off the tee if it truly is 585 ft. Flick a 3Bird if it is 304 like the hole info says.

RHBH Star Destroyer on a slight anyhyzer. Then a Mid or putter depending on the landing/look.

If 304 a Forehand Sexton Firebird

Hickory Hills twice in a week?!? FREAKIN' EXCELLENT! I absolutely love this course (even though it can be a killer on my bum leg)

23 is a tough, long, slightly downhill hole that's fairly open, ending to the right in a few trees. A roller is a good option, otherwise RHBH players are looking at the biggest sky anny they've got the arm for.

If the grass is short, RHBH G-FD Roller out to the left on a decent cut angle, let it roll down the hill and flip back over hoping to end within 100' of the pin at a look for 3.

If grass is longer, RHBH S-TD sky anny, likely still a decent midrange shot for approach.

"Beefy" Z Crank RHFH hyzerflip if it's 585 as it looks in the pic. Planning on a Firebird or Zone overhand approach.

Can you tell my backhand has been a little off lately?

I love this course!!!

That being said, is that distance really accurate? Maybe it's the slight downhill elevation... I know I've been pin high on this hole a couple of times. The trick is just getting past those late trees.

Stable Destroyer on a long forced panning turnover line over the road is the shot for me.
