    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.

    to infinity and beyond...

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

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

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