    Re: Advice on irons off tees

    I was taught to always use a tee but you were not trying to tee it up like you were hitting a wood, just high enough to be equal to a really good lie on the fairway.

    If I was to use a castle tee I would only use the bright green or orange ones which give a teed height around 5mm max and then I would make sure they are sitting as flat as possible. Personally I prefer wooden tees which the only bit above ground is the very last slighter larger diameter section.

    I play the shot in the same way I would as a fairway iron shot ie ball, then turf.

    Just it hit like a normal shot. Do think about anything else!

    Tee it up just put it a fraction about the turf.

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Job done

    Short wooden tees are something I never buy. I just keep the bit from the long wooden tees when they break.
