Where to Tee Up Your Shot

Where to Tee Up Your Shot

I want to give you a tip on where to tee off on the tee box. It may look the same to most golfers but there’s a spot on the tee box that’s best for you. Every hole needs to be analyzed before you decide where to tee off. On this particular hole there’s a creek over on the right hand side. So the trouble is to the right, I want to keep my ball to the left. Teeing off on the left side of the tee would have me hitting towards the trouble and shorten my fairway. So if I can tee off over on the right hand side of the tee and I tee off as far to the right as I could provided the tee was level. That would give me a better angle away from the trouble and back to the fairway. Remember, when the trouble is on the right, you’re going to tee off on the right hand side of the tee. When the trouble is on the left, tee off on the left side of the tee. That always gives you the opportunity to hit away from the trouble and gives you a better chance to put the ball on the fairway. Tee off on the right when the trouble is on the right and on the left when the trouble is on the left.
