Yeah, when the pin is in that position, I often throw a Buzzz up the gut and simply try to stay in the fairway, lots of tree jails to either side. Then easier to get under oak branch for an upshot using a Classic Roc or putter for the par 3. The only time I birdied it was with a beat Pro Wraith.

If the branch was 40 feet closer and 2 feet lower would you still use the buzz, or do you think you'd get more distance past it with an understable driver?

That would make the hole much less fun, but I might still lay up in that case, too. Courses like this really test your upshot game, you often have to fall back on your ability to make tough second shots to stay at par.
