Quite an unusual recommandation ,Pete ! I” ll have to try it out !
However ,when playing ,I never think about THE Score .I wait until THE round is completed to add up m’y individual scores ,and While playing ,I don’t Count If I am one over ,two over ,three over,etc… .I play from THE white tees ,and I know on which hole I cannot play THE established par ,those holes which are to long for me to reach in r
It works very well,although do not underestimate this test. I have shot over par from the red tees by being complacent.

Pete ,You’re right :never be complacent when playing golf.With the age piling fast years on (I ‘ve turned 79 ) I definitely will take your advice in consideration and be a more humble golfer !(I ‘ll shoot my tee shots from my wife’s red tees !)

This is great advice that more golfers should try. Especially those who can’t reach a medium par 4 in regulation. This is merely the program Nicklaus promoted not long ago. “Tee it forward.” For some reason, most male golfers allow their ego to dictate their play rather than play from forward tees where there’s a better chance for them to score. One issue is that most, if not all courses use age, normally 65, as the determining factor for play from forward tees in tournaments, which seems to carry over to weekend players. If anything should determine forward tees, it should be handicap, not age. I started playing from the “senior” tees this year & believe me, it’s much more fun.The 1 issue I have with it, is at times the forward tees are placed as much as 100 yds. in front of the average tees. IMO, that’s taking it a bit too far. No matter which tees you play, you still have to execute the shots. If anyone gives you grief for playing from forward tees, tell them to play from the back tees & see how well they do. I bet you won’t get many takers.
