How to Beat the First Tee Jitters

1st Tee Jitters are real, which is why that first shot doesn’t always go as planned. If you tend to get a little loose off number one then here’s a resourceful tip to find the fairway.

Right Handed Players…

If you tend to slice the ball, then stand on the slope of the tee box with the ball above your feet and make several practice swings. This is going to help you move the club around your body and swing from the inside out, correcting for that left to right ball fight.

If you tend to hook the ball, then do the opposite. Stand on a slope with the ball below your feet. This will help you swing the club up and not so much from the inside. It’s also going to help you keep your weight on the balls of your feet instead of your heels. This will help correct for the right to left ball flight.
