If you ask a dozen experts, you’ll probably get a dozen different opinions on what you need to do to break 80. Here is one solution for how you can break 80.
You’ll make a variety of shots during a typical round of golf. Whether it’s driving, hitting off the fairway, chipping or putting, any one of these areas could make or break your game. To learn how you can break 80, you must perfect your tee shots. For our purposes, we’ll discuss shots off the tee area with any club – from your driver to your pitching wedge.
A lot of golfers never reach or break 80 because they lose too many strokes off the tee.
Just one wild shot from the tee can ruin your overall score. If you hit a hard slice or hook into the woods, you’ll likely only be able to bogey that hole. To break 80, you must become consistent and proficient from the tee.
To master your tee shot, you should concentrate on getting controlled distance. That’s what will get you in position for a possible eagle on longer holes and birdies on the others. Do that consistently and you’ll be playing in the mid- to high-70s.
Here are some tips to help you maximize your tee shots:
First of all, spend some quality time practicing from the tee. Try different things to see what works for you. And keep in mind, that with this practice, you may end up with a variety of new tee shots you can use in different situations.
