Played it many times, and never knew there was a short tee!!! I have also screwed it up many times. Best shots have been with a Fuse or putter. Lower ceiling than you think, and you want to go slightly right half way and hold the line or flex a little back left. A putter that stays down the center will keep you out of trouble. Big fading discs don't end well. Even some mids.
