All of a sudden I can't make good contact with my hybrid when I hit off a tee on a long par 3.  Weirdest thing.  I can pipe it consistently out of the fairway and most of the time of the rough with a reasonable lie, but the last few times I've played that hole and hit hybrid, I've either toe'd it, hit it fat, or popped it up.  I tee it the same height I do all my irons: just the head of the tee sticking up out of the ground.  For reference, it's the same height I tee my 3W and I haven't it that poorly in weeks.

Any ideas come to mind, or should I just say f*ck it and hit that one off the deck regardless?

From the sound of everything, it certainly seems like it's just a mental thing. Maybe hit it off the deck for a bit until you get a comfort level back. Then try to tee it up slightly again. Also, double check your setup at the tee. Maybe you are setting up differently than when you hit it in the fairway?

Yeah, I'm betting it creeps forward in the stance when put on a tee.

I trick myself by making a small mound of sand or dirt and put the ball on that, on the tee box only.  Then hit the hybrid. Looks more realistic, and ultra traditional.

Might work for others.

've had that problem in the past. I find that my lead shoulder is opening too early. Keep the shoulder in a little more and make sure you're hitting a descending blow and follow through. Works for me.

    • 4.5 hours being considered fine is just an American view of the game  I think most Americans would find themselves unwelcome if they didnt adjust to the pace in their weekly rounds elsewhere in the world.
    • Played yesterday and today.  Didn't go so well yesterday as I shot a 106 yesterday as my driver was just all over the place and my ball striking overall left a lot to be desired.  Had 4 GIRs, however, 3 were on the front which was a general theme as shot 49 on the front and 57 on the back. Score: 106 CR/Slope: 71.6/121 2 Pars 5 Bogeys 3 DB 6 TB 1 Quad-Bogey View this round on GAME GOLF   Today I was able to bounce back and although I shot 100, I had control over my driver, was moving the ball right to left or straight off the tee and my ball striking felt better.  2 holes ended up doing me in, though.  After starting with 3 bogeys, which really should have included 1 par, and a double bogey, on the par 3 4th hole, I pushed a 7I right  and subsequently overdrew the ball on my reload and missed short and right on a brutal front right location location on a green that slopped severely from back right to front left.  Over-hit my chip shot that went all the way to the back right of the green, had to chip on and then 3 putt for an 8.  On the Par 4 14th hole, I overdrew 2 tee shots with my 3H OB.  Then chipped out, leaving myself 100 yards, took a three-quarter swing with a 52 degree wedge and left it short right.  Flag was on the front right and I thinned my chip shot, leaving it on the back left of the green.  I then 3 putt for a 10.  That said, drained a few longish putts, but my short game, putter notwithstanding, was brutal as I failed to leave myself any gimmies when chipping.  That said, had another birdie and a few pars so there are definitely positives to take away from the round. Score: 100 CR/Slope: 70.4/124 Birdie: 1 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 6 DB: 6 Others: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF 4 rounds in four days - first time I've been able to do that and it was AWESOME!  Shot 95, 95, 106, 100 so, not too shabby for me. 
    • thank you...already loaded up on TM clubs :/...that being said, I've been working on my tee shot and was wondering how much range time is too much?  have had my M2 driver for about 5 days...have hit about 250ish balls with it already...too much?
    • Yep.  Lagavulin is another.  The Isle of Islay scotches are unique.  A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine.  Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!   
    • A towel is an unneeded accessory? Once again, I'm not sure you read things before you reply.
