Managing Your Tee Shot
The aim of the tee shot is to get the ball in play and away from the course hazards, preferably on the fairway or green on a par 3. This would put you in a good position to then progress your ball down to the green.
Tee Shot Approach
So, to get the best results when playing a tee shot your need to:
- Look at your hole in front of you and work out where the course hazards are
- Having a course guide will help
- Think about where the best position would be for you to play your second shot
- Compare that to your ability and what shot you could pull off 7 times out of 10
- Measure the distance to your chosen spot
- For par 3s you probably won’t need your driver. If you have a particularly difficult tee shot in front of you might choose a 3, 4 or even an iron rather than the driver
- You need an exact distance to help you choose the most appropriate club
- Before you select your club make any adjustment to your choice taking the wind effect into account
- It’s very easy to get over excited on the tee and try to hit the ball hard. Remember your tempo and make a steady swing
