Should you *always* use a tee on a par 3? Top 100 Teachers explain
Irons are meant to be hit off the turf, but from the tee box, is that the best idea? We asked a trio of GOLF Top 100 Teachers for their advice.
“Absolutely, for every club that isn’t a wedge. It instills confidence and makes it easier to catch the ball solid.”
“Yes, but barely — like the ball is lying in the first cut. Unless you’re into the wind. In that case, play it off the turf and, in the back of your stance, grip down and finish low.”
“Yes! Careful, though: Don’t tee the ball so high that it forces you to swing differently than if you had a perfect fairway lie.”
