Play the right tee!

Extra distance is something that everyone wants but few can deliver. I usually make the case for players to work on increasing their distance through club fitting, exercise and practice….But, while your doing those things play the tee that scales the course in such a way that you get the “Tour Experience”. That simply means that if the hole is meant to be played with a driver & 7 iron, play the tee that allows you to do just that. Instead though, we tend to play the tee that we think we are “supposed to” and end up playing at a yardage that doesn’t fit our distance ability.
