Default Long tees or short tees

do you play more often from long tees or short tees?

i have never thrown a single game from only short tees. it's not because i r00lz. i'm seriously inconsistant and lack all skill to be a pro. i don't play longs to feel more manly. i actually have no reason at all. every time i go, my friends and i just play long tees where ever we are at. no reason at all for it...

i'm curious to see what the majority is. i see large groups playing shorts all the time and i wonder if that is more common.

I play both, depending on the course and my mood. If both tees have the same surface, I tend to play from longs for the challenge, with occasional fun rounds from the shorts. If only one set of tees has concrete, I tend to play more from that set of tees whether it's long or short.

Shorts. I am a rec player and that is where rec players should play. Some courses shorts are silly and then I play longs but at home I play shorts more often than not.

99% of courses I play long tees, but there are a couple brutal courses that I will play short tees. If your 15 over par on long tees and the course offers short tees then you might want to play shorts.

I choose longs when not in a tournament mainly because that's how you get the full experience of the course. You also have a better chance of comparing scores as most people play the longs. I guess part of it around here is that the longs are marked a lot better and the shorts were kind of an afterthought with no signs.

I always play from the long. I figure its the only way to get better.

so far the majority is definitely leaning twards long being more often played. i thought it would be a much closer race. i see so many people constantly playing shorts

as for 'if you score this much then you should play from this tee' that is just silly. i don't do official compentition, i don't play for $, only for fun with a few friends. because i score such'n'such has no barring on me on where i should throw at.

Now I know why all these clowns that can throw all of 80' play from the longs...its so they can get better...HA

My theory has always been, if you can't get past the short you shouldn't be playing the long.

I am ~~this close~~ from moving to longs at my home course but with my shoulder I am going to hold off because I don't want the temptation to torque it too hard. My home course is one where I can throw under par short and about 8 over long so its birdie fest or bogie fest...I choose birdie.

My goal is 49 from the shorts and then I will move to the longs and chip away until I can get 49 there.

Both. Often in an alternating fashion. Sorry, I couldn't answer the oft ubiquitous two option poll question.
