Long driving from the tee, if it be also straight and consistent, is the groundwork of all further movements and performances…..
The tee sorts are, in fact, the parent shots; the second shots are their heirs, inheriting the advantages of their forefather’s virtues…..
It must be remembered as a commandment that the play proceeds by stepping stones from situation to situation; only one shot goes into the hole; the others are preparatory to this end.
Concerning Golf (1903)
