not many tour players use 3i now... depends on which course and their strategies for the holes...

Look at the background carefully seems that they are on high ground. Golf ball should fly further with higher altitude.

I see, think if they can hit it accurately, should use it

yes, slightly high ground, should be roughly similar to 2nd floor on range

DK: Thanks for sharing... I think it is a feat even for tour players! I also wonder how come ppl comment like they see tour players teed off using an iron and getting 250m so often....

Alex: think DK meant that the height for that particular hole lah! How can be tee off 1.5km down to green. And the webpage that says high altitude meaning to say high altitude of the course right? If so, another interesting fact - high altitude = longer distance? Never knew that!

sorry.. to make things clear.

high altitude - ball flys further because air has less resistance

thanks.

higher altitude results in longer ball-flight, so further lateral traveling distance.

anyway, 216yard 6-i!!! White Flag

i think i must aim playing red tee next time.

Hi peace, yah, what I meant was the height of the tee box with respect to the pin.

Wow, never knew higher altitude of the course = longer distance, think they should design a course at kathmandu for ego boosting. bounce

No worries Alex, thought you are referring to the tee box at a higher ground. Thanks for sharing the interesting fact, never knew that!

Heard there is a course in China, think is near Kuming or Li Jiang. Due to its high altitude, commoners like ask can drive 400 yards Smile must try Smile

how about the hole after the halfway house with the Aunty in Sembawang country club....hehehe, a long and low tee will be able to carry over the hill top and roll all the way down...

4dtoto,

it's called the bell hole.

for that hole, its best that the ball goes left and roll nicely out of the tree line and on to cart path, it will brings the ball nicely to 100-150, that will be a 400+ meter drive! and one of my kaki did that, his ball landed on 150m...

if try to hit over the crest and let it roll, most of us probably will reach the bell.. for ppl like chippy probably will reach 200m or 170m mark.
