Alright, Boys. When is the last time you played from the ladies tees? Probably when you were ten, right? Oh never?
Well, hear me out, because playing from the ladies tees can be more beneficial than you think.
During an average round you are hitting between 12-14 drives. So that leaves approximately 35-45 iron/wedge shots for the average golfer. Your irons are the clubs that put you in scoring position. Not the driver.
Ok. I get it. Not much feels better than bombing a driver down the pipe. Hell we all know that ladies love the long ball. But ladies also love winners. Winners make birdie and we’ve already agreed that you make birdie with great iron shots, not driver.
Playing from the shorter tees will not only give you more practice with your irons, it will also put you in positions on the course you are not familiar with. Different is good.
If you’re still reading this it means you haven’t given up on the idea yet. Gracias.
Reasons to play from the ladies tees
- 1. Work on your Schniederjans
- 2. Discovery your weaknesses – If you are lacking with any iron, playing from the short tees will expose this. Discover your weakness and work on it.
- 3. Meet the smoke show that just won the women’s club championship.
Reasons not to play from the ladies tees
1. Lose to the smoke show that just won the women’s club championship.
So as it gets colder and your drives begin to fly a bit shorter, give this idea a shot. Improve your short game and win…from the ladies tees.
Hit ’em straight!
