Golf instruction with Steve Scott: Tee it low to watch it go, tee it high to let it fly

·1 min read

Steve Scott, Golfweek’s Director of Instruction, is back. He’s once again at Sleepy Hollow Country Club, just north of New York City, this time to discuss changing up your tee height.

What many amateur players don’t understand is changing the height of your tee can change the shape of your shot. Teeing it low will help you hit a piercing cut. Teeing it high allows you to attack the ball on the way up and hit a towering draw.

“If I have trouble on the left side of the fairway, and I want to avoid that trouble, I’m going to tee it low and that’s going to ensure I hit a very straight, to slight fade with the driver.”

Aside from leading our lessons, Scott is also the PGA head golf professional at the Outpost Club, founder of the Silver Club Golfing Society, and a PGA Tour Live analyst.
