To break 80 consistently a golfer has to have a safe tee shot. Driving well off the golf tee is vital to break 80 as too many wayward drives means too many double bogeys

Learning to break 80 consistently demands a high skill level. To achieve that standard most golfers have had lessons and have bought the best equipment, but still something holds them back from being able to lower their scores to the magic number. Try to incorporate the following tips into your game to break 80 consistently.

• Most golfers who struggle to break 80 lose too many shots from wayward drives. To break 90 consistently power wasn’t important, but to break 80, power is necessary as a golfer needs to reach the par fours in two, therefore the driver has to be used on most tee shots. Unless under control however, shots will be dropped.

• There is a famous expression “you drive for show but putt for doe” but ask most tour pros and they will tell you that a safe game off the tee is equally as important as putting. Unless you have a safe drive off the tee it is inevitable you will hit into trouble and take too many double bogeys. Putting is important but driving is equally so.

How to Find a Safe Shot off the Tee

• There are many different permutations for a safe driver shot off the tee and this is the time to experiment.

• Try teeing the ball up at different heights, low, medium and high. Most golfers wanting to control tee shots use a low tee, which stops a golfer hitting the ball left as it demands a later release.

• Gripping down the club, almost on the shaft, allows the hands to make quicker and more accurate adjustments to square up the club head at impact.

• Make sure you finish the swing in a balanced finish position on all difficult tee shots where control is vital. The fact that you are facing a tough shot introduces tension and a likelihood you will hit ‘at’ the ball rather than swinging with rhythm. Force yourself to a balanced finish when facing a demanding tee shot.

• Make sure you use a driver with the optimum loft for your safe shot. Sacrificing one or two degrees of loft, and maybe ten or fifteen yards, is worth it if you can hit more fairways.

• Remember to work on all aspects of your game, including your putting, but develop a safe drive off the tee and you will be nearer your goal of being able to break 80 consistently.
