If you find yourself in the trees and have no clue how to hit the ball right to left or left to right, there is always the 90 percent air theory. Any expert will tell you that trees are 90 percent air, so therefore, we should have a 90 percent chance if we hit the ball straight at the tree, of it finding a gap and then getting itself back out on the golf course. So here we go, I have got a nice big tree in front of me. I am taking a 9-iron and I am just going to swing straight at this tree which I know is 90 percent air……I love this game.
