Tee Time

Mike Rogers’ Tee Time Tips

May 15, 2012
By John Wickline , The Inter-Mountain

Today's tee time tip was originally taught to me by my high school golf coach, Mike Gillespie, and is not so much a tip as it is a drill to practice your putting. I have taken this drill and modified it some from its original form I learned from Coach Gillespie when the Buckhannon-Upshur High School Golf Team made the run of three consecutive West Virginia High School statechampionships in 1980, 81 and 82. That team amassed a record of 223 wins against just 3 losses, with a record of 84 -0 in the 1982 season. This was back when we did not compete in the three classes (AAA, AA and A) as they do today, it was just golf so we competed and defeated everyone in golf in West Virginia, not just Class AAA. Combine this tip with my previous tip about seeing the magic dot when you putt, and you can save a bunch of strokes on your round and make the game much more enjoyable.
