No dice on the camera. My friend didn't bring it and my 10 month old broke mine a while back. I will have to get video another day. The results? Wizard hit the wall. Spider hit the tree on the left. TL bit the dust 3 times in a row. I don't know why but for whatever reason when I threw my TL I could not for the life of me get it to go UP. It just hit the dirt in front of me every time. Ah well. Next time.

You're right that a forehand anhyzer flex-like shot can work sweet lines like the one you would need on that hole, but you have to throw over-stable plastic, and on that line you have to hit exactly the right angle, since this kind of throw is very sensitive to errors. One of the women locals at DeLaveaga throws pin-point accurate forehand shots (I saw her deuce a 450' hole using long accuracy alone), but for most of us mortals it is too difficult.

I'll happily agree with that statement. I ALMOST made it with my TL yesterday. Hit the wall but stayed up there! Denied by the rim when I shot for deuce though. Hehe.

Keep throwing that TL at it...great idea. I have a 150g Dx Shark i would try and flex through there as well. Interesting shot, thanks for the mental challenge.

I'd throw a putter if there was no wind. Depending on wind direction it would be a mid with the necessary stability to negotiate the line.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!
