Video Golf Tip | What Side Of Tee Box To Use
By Tim Cusick

In this tip I am going to talk to you about using the tee box to your advantage. Eighteen times in a round you have a chance to have ball in hand, it is like playing pool. When someone scratches you put the ball on the table in your advantage. You have your chance to take advantage of the tee box on the eighteen holes you play. What you would like to do is if there is trouble on one side or the other you want to position yourself on the tee box so you are playing away from trouble. For instance, if I have trouble on the right hand side of the hole I want to move over to the right side of the tee box, tee off there and aim back away from trouble. Conversely, if the trouble is on the left hand side of the tee box I am going to come over here on the left hand side, tee the ball up and play away from the trouble on the left hand side. The reason for that is that you do not want to play into trouble. You do not want to hit your shot into trouble. I just completed a tip that when the wind was at my back I wanted to use the right hand side of the tee box so that I could aim back across the wind and have the whole fairway as an angle. Very similar to what I am talking about here. if I am on the right hand side of the tee box I have 40 yards of fairway to shoot at when the trouble is on the right. Remember, eighteen times a round you have ball in hand. Use it to your advantage and you will be in the fairway more often.
