Mental Mondays: Take Full Advantage of The Tee Box

September 17, 2012

When setting up your shot, use all of the tee ground to your advantage. The rules permit a player to tee up anywhere between the markers, and up to two club lengths behind. And if you really want to maximize the tee box, remember that you actually can stand outside the teeing ground, so long as the ball is in it.
Take advantage of this rule to find a flat, undamaged area in which to spike your ball. In addition, make sure that you have solid footing. The two club lengths of extra space behind the line may also give you a more advantageous angle, or help to take an overhanging branch out of play.
