Reminds me of a bloke I played with years ago during a charity pro-am.

EVERY tee shot, he'd hit an iron into the ground and give himself a little raised "tee" made of grass, and then pull either a driving iron or 3 wood and proceed to smash it down the guts using his 'raised grass tee' to hold the ball instead of a tee.

He'd do the same on Par 3, but using a more lofted club depending on distance.

Post round, having a few drinks, he confessed, he gets too tense if he uses a tee.

A solution for your current, ah, dilemma?


Thats a lot of grass to hit my driver!

I've seen some blokes do it with alarming consistency. A lot of kids who have played since they were really young do it regularly, because they have grown up doing it multiple times every hole. 

Best one I saw was this 9 year old playing off about 18. He hit driver, driver, driver, 9 iron in to the Par5 17th at Southern and made par.

Yes.

Or

You could use a driving iron or fairway wood.

In, the extreme, you could maybe even use a hybrid. 😉

Medal day yesterday.
After the last couple of rounds i wasnt to confident.

Driver seemed to straighten itself out a bit, but irons were big draws on anything longer than an 8i which was a pain in the ass

Bunkers are still a work in progress im afraid.

46/38 for 84. Net 73
7/14 FIR
5 GIR
18/15 For 33 putts. 2 3 putts
3 out 5 sand saves

Stoked with the back 9. Dropping a shot on the last was a bummer, but i will take it

Cap came backin .3 to 9.2

Great effort Rob. Didn't give in and declare a practice round after blowing your cap on the front 9.

Todays warm up was pretty average, putting was ordinary, short game practice was rubbish. Full swing felt poor.

Oh how wrong can one fellow be.

Even par with the card on front 9, 2 over the bavk 9 with a double on the last hole.

Driver was reasonably ok ish today. Misses werent horrid, except for 17 amd 18

Hybrids were excellent.
Irons were very good finally

Short game was quite handy, a coupleof average ones, but on the whole, quite satisfying.
Putting was mint, bloody things were dropping from everywere.

36/38. 74 of the stick. Best round by 3 shots.
23/22 for 45 points
7/14 FIR
9 GIR
27 putts

4 birdies,
10 pars
3 bogeys
1 double

Happy days baby.

I might have a beer now
