Accuracy From The Tee Sometimes Requires A WoodLet These Tips Help You Improve Your Game
The guys with the long drives know the score: When it comes to a shot off the tee, accuracy beats distance every time.
You might have noticed that Tiger Woods, intent on making a great shot from the tee, uses a 3-wood. He's not too proud to do it, and you should be OK with it too.
The driver is your biggest weapon, but it can be your downfall if you drive the ball out of play. Think of the driver as just one of the clubs you use for tee shots.
No need to feel wimpy when you use a 3-wood, 2-iron, or even a 3- or 4-iron on tight holes. Don't worry about losing your distance advantage.
Professionals writing in Golf magazine once recommended that you use five different clubs off the tee during your next round. You could be surprised how easy it is to avoid big numbers when your ball stays in play.
Playing your natural game is another factor that could influence your score. The best golfers can play any style they want. They may be aggressive, conservative, or creative.
Unless you're playing and practicing constantly, stay in your comfort zone. Play your natural game.
