Back tees or front tees in a handicap tournament?

  1. 1. What tees would you play in a tournament?

    • Back tees with a 12 handicap (7078 yds, 72.1/134)
      2
    • Front tees with a 8 handicap (5434 yds, 68.8/121)
      19

Surely your handicaps are what they are due to competition golf which is always off the back tees ?

I don't think moving to the forward tees for  casual golf makes a lot of difference to players such as myself who have decent distance off the tee . My handicap is what it is because I struggle around and on the greens . (I think that's what DavePO43 said)

In my situation, and given those choices, I would definitely play the shorter tees with a lower handicap. I'm 66 and don't have the game for a 7,000 yard course anymore. High 5,000's to about 6,000 is where I live these days. 

I'll be playing in the local Greatest Golfer of the Valley tournament again this year. They ask for handicaps, but only for pairings. It's scratch scoring, and the guys in the 60-70 division play the senior tees.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
