Course Strategy - Playing Smart Off the Tee

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 31 Jul 2017 | Comments ()

Most amateur golfers will stand on the tee of a Par 4 or 5 and just assume the must hit driver because its the biggest club in the bag. However, James Reeson believes this is a naive and misguided philosphy, causing golfers more trouble than is actually needed. 

James' simple idea is to play to the widest parts of all fairways. On paper the idea seems very boring and easy to do, but there is a clear correlation between playing to the percentages and scoring better on the course. 

By targetting the widest parts of all fairways, your bad shots will obviously start to be finishing in much better positions. Reeson believes the old philosophy of pulling driver out every hole is outdated and by having a detailed thought process on the tee, the birdies will start to follow on the green.
