    What if your tendency is to hit a baby draw off the tee? Would you not want to tee off left of center no matter where the trouble lies?

      You can certainly do that. I mentioned an over the top swing in that tip. Just got to be careful you don’t blow it right into the water. That is one of the misses for the drawer.

    Paul ,
    In standard golf theory ,you should tee on the side of the tee box where the “danger ” lies,so as to move away from it :in your example ,the “danger ” are the bunker and the water on the right .So your recommendation is “according to the rule” .In general ,I always try to tee the ball on the left side of the tee box .Many golf pro’s say it’s advisable to do so for a right hand player because it “frees up your swing “.
    We also have ,most of us ,a tendency to fade the ball,so aiming for the left part of the fairway is advisable ,thus teeing off from the left side of the tee box in the present case .

    Paul so timely I missed 7 fairways to the right the other day each one in trouble, having to chip out sideways.
    When I saw this tip I decided to give it a go at my next game and aimed most of my drives left whenever the target allowed me too, result I hit 13 out of 14 best in 10 years of playing. My course is tree lined with narrow fairways.
    On another subject does using the lower body at start of downswing help prevent chicken wing
