Yesterday I played Golf at a lovely course. We were on the 9th and I was behind in the head to head (social, so far more important than Comp). I thought I hit a decent drive but when I measured my next shot I was still 236m from the pin. “F@&k” this is a hard par 4.

Anyway, having been hitting well and the course was in such good nick I decided to hit Driver off the deck. I’d seen it done once but never tried it myself. Managed to get it pin high just off the green. Easy up and down.

Then my playing partner tells me it’s a par 5!

How good is golf. Happy Australia Day. Ben.

Mouldy is the queen of off the deck with driver.  So you are obviously the King.  235m off the deck.  F Me.  Did you have ice cream to celebrate?? 

 

Oh, just to clarify, I mean Mouldy as a queen in the nicest and most P.C. way possible so as not to offend.

Assuming the popularity of a post is based on the number of likes, I have taken favourably to the idea of conducting “off the deck” lessons at golf central, Thursday feb 8, tickets are selling fast however with the opportunity to learn this valuable skill, meet other isg’ers, be part of the rap video we will be making and celebrating the best February 8th ever, why not join us. Look for the guy with the almost full bucket of practice range balls and the guy with the fashion blindness. See you there.

Just a few words of advice Ben. Driver off the deck skills are limited to True Blues. Make sure you don't share with the great unwashed infidels.

As an expert DotD hitter the key is to setup as per your normal driver position except the ball position is a few inches back. As in at the bottom of your swing. To ensure good contact and a completed swing only take it back about 3/4 of your normal driver swing and a little slower. A full follow through will see the ball fly with a gentle fade so aim at the left edge of the green.

I look forward to hearing about your upcoming tap in Eagle.
