“How to hit a great tee shot.” -Golf Game Tips (I’m paraphrasing)
Focusing on distance ISN’T the right way to hit a great tee shot. Think before you pull out the driver on a par 4 or par 5 hole. Think first about YOUR most comfortable approach distance to the green. Do the math to determine the best tee shot for YOU. For example, let’s say you are on a 330 yard par 4 and your favorite, most comfortable approach yardage to the green is 125 yards. That means you only need a tee shot of 205 yards. Choose your clubs accordingly and you’ll take strokes off your game.
