In Oregon, we love our trees but for golfers, not so much.

Don't you hate when your ball lands near the trees?

Golf Pro Justin Darnell shows Allie Warren on Tee It Up the best way to get through without adding on extra strokes.

Use a club that has a lower loft. Allie uses a 5 iron and Justin is uses a 7. Play it closer to your back foot. It helps de-loft the club, which helps you hit the ball low to avoid the trees. The goal is to hit this shot in front of the green or on the green if you're lucky.
