How much slope downhill is there? If your throwing downhill, and you naturally get a disc too nose down, it will turn over easier. Conversely, throwing uphill will make your disc more overstable.

the discs in question were all in good shape, 2 were brand new. the hole slopes down to the right but is pretty level from tee to pin. and yes I am using a power grip.

throwing downhill is like virtual nose down.

you will need to throw a more stable disc to compensate, or with more hyzer, etc.

the wide sweeping hyzer will likely be the safest shot here if you can reach it.
