Managed a -13 which I guess should be fine. The winds are pretty good really. The par 3s aren't easy although I fluked a HIO on the 7th :)

Now I know that I'm sticking to Pro, and there's only 1 way to go..

And that's into every bunker on the weekend round somehow.

The only way I've ever eagled that hole is by holing out a Hornet from across the river.  

 

I've never been on the green in 2 shots.  

 

Edit: Or holing out Nirvana like i just did 30 seconds ago.  I got very lucky.

Crushed a beserker right up the middle into the rough, almost drove the bunker way out there at the end of the rough. Easy nirvana right next to cup for the eagle. Thinking a mashed KM will work as well.

I wonder if you reached because of the berzerker distance on your Nirvana?  

 

I'll try that method with my alt account later today and report back (with Kingmaker).  

 

Thanks for the tip!

Hole 4:

 

 I hit a normal drive.  Hit a sniper to about 4 ft on the  second shot, 3rd shot putt it in.  

 

Gave me a par????

You can reach the green with a big dog from the end of the first fairway with the tailwind they gave us on the second shot.

Either go right at it over the water or a max curl bounce off the second fairway onto the green.

-13 is a very good score!  

 

I managed an -11 with a weird par on hole 4.  Sent a ticket to PD.

Thanks Tuna.  I'm going to try blasting a KM and see what happens.  

 

I get wild sometimes with the BD.

LOL!  Welp, blew that.  Clipped the rough on the drive.   

 

I think the best play might be a Titan if you're going to just blast one down there and Nirvana onto the green.  

 

You'll get more help from the wind  with a Titan than you will with a Kingmaker.

Might be, but had plenty left on the nirvana, I will try a KM later today in 1v1

A Titan is Wind Resistance 2, a Kingmaker is Wind Resistance 3 (both are Power 3 balls)  so if you've got a tailwind and you're looking to just go for max distance, a Titan will go further because it reduces the wind less than a Kingmaker.

Huh, sorta makes sense, lol. Never thought about it that way, I just figured they would both have same distance, and in my bean I just thought the KM had better wind resistance, so would go further.

The next time you're playing a 1v1 and you've got a tailwind, equip a KM and look at the wind, then equip the Titan and hit it further.  :)
