Hitting it Straight
April 21, 2009 by admin

Most golfers do play within their means with all their shots except the tee shot and that is when they “unload.” Blasting your tee shot can lead to only one thing, missed fairways. Question: Would you rather be in the rough or in the middle of the fairway, even if you are 15 yards shorter than you would like to be? Most players would love to hit every shot straight, why not just swing within your means?
