Golf Tips-How to Break 100 in Golf

The tee’s are set up according to a person’s handicap, not according to a persons ego.

His 7-iron about 135 yards.

He ended up shooting a 98. This iron was now going to be the longest iron that was going to

stay in his bag when out on the golf course. You probably should go

first to a driving range and practice hitting your irons or your hybrids

to see which of them you can hit the best. The result is a ball that flies out of control to the left or to the right. If the iron or hybrid that

you choose feels good and you hit the ball relatively straight down the

fairway, then that is the club that you should use off the tee out on

the golf course.

GOLF TIP#1: Use the White Tee’s

If your golf scores are high and you struggle to break 100, then you should definitely play your tee shots from the white tee’s. A few individuals find it easy to play, while others find it somewhat difficult. (As a side note: He left

his 5-wood in his bag, just in case he came across a really long shot

over a hazard. It also exposed where his other weaknesses were, and that is, his short game. And the good thing was, every shot that he hit off the tee was in the fairway. It could be

4-iron, a 5-iron, a 6-iron, or maybe even a 7-iron.  Some are finding

success with hitting a hybrid as well. If that is true of you and you struggle with the game and your shooting scores over 100, then try this simple golfing lesson and see if it helps you.

When he finished playing the hole, I thought he

was going to be a little upset with the result, but he wasn’t.  In fact,

he said he was happy because he played that hole for the 1st time from

the fairway.  This boosted his confidence for the rest of the round.

My father hits a 5-iron roughly 160 yards.


he came to one long par 5 he stuck to the game plan of trying to reach

the green in 4 rather than in 3.  He hit his 5-iron off the tee and his

next 2 shots he used his 7-iron from the fairway.  His 4th shot was only

70 yards from the center of the green and he played it great!  His shot

landed 6 feet away from the flag and he 1 putted for a natural par!  Oh,

now he was on fire.  This, in essence, was a birdie for him, and it wiped

the extra shot that he had gained on the first hole away.  He was

feeling really good by then.


handicappers, you can do the same.  You may be able to hit a hybrid, a

6-iron, a 7- iron, or even an 8-iron good from the fairway.  However, I

would suggest that you use the longest club that allows you to do that. 

And I would not go any lower than an 8-iron.

So while your are still at the driving

range, now see what iron(s) or even a hybrid, you hit the best from off

the fairway.  Going back to the example of my dad, we figured out that

the best club he hit well from the fairway, was his 7-iron.  So when he

has a fairway shot he hits his 7-iron for his 2nd and 3rd shots.  (Except

when he is close enough to a green to use a shorter club).

Break 100 Golfing Results

So let’s see what my father was able to do with this tip:

Golf Lesson to Break 100, Put to the Test


suggested this test to my father, who typically shoots between 100 and

110. We are now both working on learning how to break 90. He couldn’t believe it worked. If this is what you do already, excellent. However, I would not go any lower

than a 7-iron, though.  When you’ve found that perfect iron put it in

your bag and make an effort to use it to hit off every tee.  (Except par

3’s that are short.  Then you should hit the appropriate shorter iron

from the tee).

GOLF TIP#2: Tee Off With an Iron

A lot of golfers get into trouble with their golfswing when using their drivers from off of the tee box. However, the result we really want is a ball that goes fairly straight down the middle of the fairway.. He managed 2 pars, 8 bogey’s, 6 double bogey’s, and 2 triple bogey’s. Shooting over 100 means you need to play from the white tee’s. This is primarily because of the big hitters we see on the tour, and so we end up choosing the driver to hit. Which I hope to document soon.


after 2 shots he would be roughly 295 yards from off the tee.  This

yardage is pretty close to the average a Tour Player would hit with his

driver in one shot.  We have managed to hit this yardage in 2 shots, but

we have done it more accurately than if we had done it with our driver. 

Most amateurs average only about 220 yards off the tee anyway, so by

hitting 2 irons shots we end up with greater distance off the tee and

hopefully better placed on the fairway.

Golfing Tips to Help Beginners Break 100

Golf is enjoyable and relaxing, and it can be played by people of all genders and ages. We spent a couple of hours out on the driving range and we

discovered that the longest iron he hit the best off the tee was his

5-iron. And par 5’s, from the tee in 3 shots.  If you were then to be

lucky enough to 2 putt on every green, then you would have shot even

par.  But since that’s not likely to happen soon, then it would be time

to make adjustment in ones thinking.  Did you realize that if you were to

reach par the 3’s in 2, the par 4’s in 3, the par 5’s in 4, and then

you 2 putted on the green, you would end up shooting a 90?  Yep, it’s

true.  That may come in time, but for now, what you want to be thinking

about is breaking 100.

golf and hopefully you too will be able to break 100 also!

Try this golfing lesson:

pick an iron or a hybrid from in your bag, (notice I said, ‘an iron’ or

a ‘hybrid’), that you hit straight off the tee. He has since then worked on his putting and his wedge play and now regularly shoots in the low to mid 90’s. Believe it or not, that was the lowest score he’d ever shot in his life. But for now, PLAY THE WHITE TEE’S!

The first par 4 hole we

played was 350 yards from the white tee’s, according to the scorecard. 

Now remember, we are going to try to reach this par 4 in 3 shots rather

than in 2.  So my father hit his 5-iron right down the middle.  He hit a

great 2nd shot with his 7-iron, again down the middle.  His 3rd shot was

now only 55 yards from the center of the green.  He used his wedge and

put his golf ball on the front of the green.  He struggles a little bit

with his putter however, and he ended up 3 putting for a 6.  OK, just a

minor setback.

Golf Lesson for the Beginner

If you struggle

to break 100 then try to do the same thing.  If you have a favorite iron

that you hit good with on a regular basis, then use it. In time, with a few golfing lessons, you might be able to lower your handicap enough to be able to play from the other tee’s. He hits his 5-wood fairly well, but not consistent enough

off the tee to use it all the time, and so he only plays his 5-iron off

the tee)

GOLF TIP#3: Hitting your 2nd and 3rd Shots from the Fairway


order to shoot par on any given course you need to reach par 3’s, from

off the tee in 1 shot.  You need to reach par 4’s, from the tee in 2
