What Is The Teeing Ground?

Frank Guastella PGA Rules Coach

Ahh, the teeing ground.  Where it all begins!

Most players just tee the ball up between the markers and hit.  There is much more to the teeing ground.  In the next video in the Playing By The Rules Video Series, Mike and Frank discuss the actual area of the teeing ground and it’s dimensions.  You’d be surprised to see how big it actually is.  Why is that a big deal?  Mike and Frank discuss it.

Please leave your comments below!  Thanks for watching!

Is the risk worth the reward?  When playing par 5’s it’s tough not to want to “go for it” every time.  You have a access what is really going on with the golf course.

Course management alone can help you save strokes.  Knowing your carry yardages for all clubs plays a roll in this.  Having a yardage book or measuring device, the weather conditions, and really how are you performing that particular day determines the choice you make.  Watch this video for some helpful tips to save some golf shot.
