Play From the Right Set of Tees - Troy Denton, PGA Professional - Golf Instruction

  • July 20, 2014

What set of tees should you play from? Most of the time when there is a group of guys they all seem to decide to play from the back tees. Is it really fun to always be hitting long irons, hybrids, or even woods into the green?

You are there to have fun, right? There is no shame to play from a shorter set of tees. Play from the set of tees that make it fun but still a little challenging. For example, if you hit the ball 275+ yards every drive it is okay to play the back tees. If you drive the ball 225 every time you would not have as much fun playing from the back tees as the longer hitter.

The different sets of tees are meant to even the playing field for shorter and longer hitters. They are not meant for a specific age range or gender.
