Don’t be fooled by the traditional meaning of “white t-shirts” like the regular men’s t-shirts. Any golfer, regardless of gender or age, whose playing ability best matches the length of the golf course from the white tees should play those tees, whether or not they are in their traditional middle position.
A general rule of thumb for determining which tee box is right for you is if you hit your driver under 200 yards, play from the nearest tee. From 200 to 225, when you hit the next furthest tee, and so on. If you hit 275+ correctly, you should play the furthest back shots.
The club encourages players shooting more than 100 per round to move off the red tees. Those shooting under 100 shall go from the yellows, under 90 from the whites and under 80 from the blues.
Many golf clubs today still enforce an age rule for using the front tees, particularly on competition days. 70 years was the benchmark for most. Some senior golf clubs have an entry age of 55 and most members play from the front tee.
Gold Tees: Senior tees, not quite the closest distance to the hole but secondary, are designed to help the older players who are still playing have a better chance of getting their old Hay Day results. White Tees: Men’s tees, medium to high handicap, typically the middle option of all tee boxes and used by most men.
And always remember the first rule of thumb we mentioned: If you’re not able to hit the par 3 holes in one shot (we’re talking distance, don’t actually aim your ball at the green bring), or are unable to reach the par 4 holes in two strokes from the tees you are playing is a good sign that you need to step up to a…
The average distance a male golfer can hit with a 5 iron golf club is 160 yards. A woman can hit a 5 iron 140 yards. Professional golfers have been known to hit 195 to 205 yards with a 5 iron.
Choose the closest tees to 5,400 yards. If you’re hitting your 5-iron 180 yards, look for tee shots about 6,500 yards away (180 times 36 equals 6,480 yards).
The answer to this question will probably surprise you, professional golfers tend to take advantage of the free tee shots they get at tournaments. Trust me there are always thousands for players and caddies to snag and it’s always wood tees. Everyone loves freebies, and pro golfers are no different.
They were mainly worn as underwear by soldiers in the First World War. The Navy then adopted the shirts as everyday work wear in 1913. The popularity of the white t-shirt used in fashion increased in the 1950s & Furthermore. This was due to the likes of Harry Belafonte, Marlon Brando, James Dean, #Elvis & The #Fonz wears them on screen.
On your average golf course, the longest par 3 hole can be around 215 yards long. Some more difficult courses may have par 3 holes that stretch as long as 240 yards, which is much longer than a typical par 3 golf hole, which may only be 90 yards.
A good rule of thumb is: If you can’t reach the green on a par 3 in one shot because of distance, that’s a good sign that you should go up a tee shot. The lower your handicap, the further back you should play.
As you get older, your swing speed usually decreases. That being said, there are still older golfers who have incredibly fast swing speeds. If you’re able to hit the ball anywhere near 220 yards, you’re pretty average. I’d say anything under 210 yards and you’re underperforming.
In my club, there is an unwritten rule that you can play from the “Senior Tees” at club events from the age of 70. I’m 69 and next year I’ll definitely be moving up. They play 6000 yards compared to the “Men’s Tees” who play about 6500 yards.
Larkin suggests, “6- to 8-year-olds should play from 50 to 150 yards on each hole. 9-11 year olds maybe 180-250 yards and 12-13 year olds play from front tees.” There’s no need for kids to go out and play full length courses
I would choose the 6400 teas… but I always pick the teas that are before the first set of teas that scare me. Great time of year for it, although not quite as great as the weather there in September and October. Fog can occur in August. Gold tees sound doable for Pebble.
4 inch: For riders with big heads. 3.25 inches: For riders with a medium head. 2.75 inch: For riders with a small head. 2.125 inch: For hybrids, fairway woods and irons.
A Pro V1 golf ball can be an excellent choice for seniors who require low spin, long distance off the tee and spin technology to help the ball stop on the green . The only issue with the Senior Pro V1 is that it may require a slightly higher swing speed to compress.
