Yeah man. Careful taking a divot. It’s like concrete.

I hate when you catch one thin and you lose feeling in your fingers and a stinger running up your arm.

I hit this one last year when the lake was frozen over (sorry for the low quality Google Maps screenshot): PSX_20180120_175704.jpg

Any of you guys ever packed in a power drill for getting tees in the ground? In theory, great idea. Probably not that practical, though...

Haha. The demo day last year was about 35-38° any miss hit felt like hitting a rock. Good times.

Nah, the frozen grass is tall enough to catch a 3 wood clean.

Used an ice pick. Still had a difficult time getting anything lower than driver tee height. Was a clown show watching everyone struggle.

I’ve had bad luck a few years back,when ground was frozen.Since I take a pretty substantial divot.Half of my set after the round had the epoxy come loose and feral (spelling) bust in the shafts.Not even worth losing or injuring another golfer with a loose club head flying in the air.
Keep it in the short stuff

This is why I will leave it short and then use my short game for a par. I've had them bounce right over the green.
