        I arrived around 12:45 and warmed up by the practice basket for quite a while. Had a decent round of 55. I am finally starting to feel a bit comfortable at pier. I still have tons of trouble with 14 though. that hole just does not fit my natural throw. I have to come up with something else.

            How are you playing it? I used to have good luck throwing a right-handed backhand roller down the left slot... then I realized that if I made the same throw with a moderately overstable disc, the anhyzer would still get it through the first trees, but then it'd flatten out and glide toward the basket -- it's a little more predictable, and usually farther, than throwing the roller.

              The appropriate way to play hole 14 is a forehand anhyzer flex shot through the right gap with some stable like a teerex.

                  So, basically the mirror image of my method.

                    I havent tried Ken's method yet, but I have a few discs that could pull off that route no problem. It is a great forehand flex shot for sure. I dont know if I can get my Teerex's do to it with my throw, but one of my Grooves could do it, no problem.

                      Thanks for all the suggestions. I will try a couple of them next time I am there. The forehand flex shot sound great and makes sense. My problem with all forehands is that they hurt my arm which makes it hard to practice them. I played Ultimate for years and never had any problems but that is no the case with disc golf. Maybe it's age related now that I qualify as a master.

                          Nobody has mentioned my favorite shot on this hole: Right up the middle. I throw forehand and have had the most success with a Champion Orc.

                              Best shot I've witnessed on the hole was Kevin Aylward last year at Pier dubs. Destroyer up the gut, hit the pin. RHBH

                              My best throw was a Sidewinder up the middle to the white stake. RHBH
