Default Advice on a tunnel shot....

Hey all, this one is about 350 feet, par 4. Elevation 7800, mountain terrain with either snow or really uneven ground (aka not really roller friendly). Have never encountered anything like this back where I'm from, so I'm curious as to what disc/throw you all would use for this. Any help is much appreciated

Buzzz or putter to be safe and play for the four, shot at 3. A little less safe would be to use a stalker, and depending on your distance you're playing the hole for birdie or eagle with a perfect drive.

Not sure what the elevation would do to a stable disc, but I would try my beat starfire. It holds an almost perfectly straight line to about 360.

I like the idea of a mid/putter and just throw 2, 175-foot throws that are dead straight and go for your birdie putt.

I personally would fan grip a Discraft Stratus at about 50% power and allow it to just float straight ahead with little roll or fade at the end.

probably my putter if it's a par 4. you should be able to get there in 2 with nice accurate shots.

This is good advice as well. I love the Stratus.

I might go for it with my TL and throw it hard down the line. However, I have been known to throw my putter far because I know it will go straight. That way I can hit that gap.

This is a little out of my range but I played a hole similar to this last summer. and about 100' shorter. I used a champ Leopard low and skipped about 200' or so down which bounce up and hit the basket.


Think a safer shot now would be to throw my Core and planning on taking a 2nd shot.
