The truck was hit last year using the same setup as this year where if you choose to go left you are throwing directly at the road instead of along the road........the new box makes noticing a car harder whereas the old box had spotters and players on the lookout.
I think making it 2 holes would be cool with the 1st being a 350-360ft shot across the water onto the strip of land and the next around 400-420ft across the water (like the normal upshot) with maybe a mando or something forcing you to throw between the guardian trees to a slightly longer pin position
The 1st would see 2's just as much as 4s and 5s and the 2nd could bring birdies with a great shot or a bogey if you do not make the mando or hit a tree and fall in the water.
Anyway it sounds a little better than just throwing really far and landing near the basket for a 2 or easy 3.
