    Re: Advice on irons off tees

    I use an iron off the tee around 95% of the time and I never tee the ball up on a peg. 2 iron trough to gap wedge and I have never teed up for an iron. I just feel like the ball is too high off the ground. I try and find a nice little patch of fluffy grass and just let it rip.
    spray it about a bit and can't putt 🇿🇦

    I always use a tee, in fact I thought that broken wooden tees were specially invented for me to use on par 3's. After all you only need it a small amount off the deck.

    Never understand people that don't tee the ball up.
    I have to agree although it probably depends on your swing. For me personally I tend to hit my 5, 6, 7 a bit thin if anything, so teeing it up just a couple of millimetres and taking my normal swing gives me a better chance of making really good contact.

    If I was someone who regularly hits it fat instead, I would probably be less inclined to tee up every time.

    i would think it would actually help someone who usually hits it fat....

    Well only if they physically change their swing to hit, so a bit different to what I was saying that's all.

    Sadly I do have sufficient insight into the human psyche to understand those that don't...
    but generally those who make their living from their scores use a tee peg with all their irons!
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...

    I’ve always said that about funky putting stances etc. There’s a reason the best don’t use it.....
