Golf Tip - September 2021


Think twice about playing from the toughest tees

Many golf courses now give you the option to play from four, five, or even six sets of tees, and the difference between the front tees and the back tees on a regulation course can be as much as 2,000 yards. Some golfers insist on playing from the back tees, which are usually intended for tournaments. If you have a double-digit handicap, this can be an ordeal. You will probably find yourself with a lot of long approach shots and carries and the frustrations that accompany them. You may enjoy the game more from the blue, white, or gold tees, post a better score, and play a much faster round as well.
