    at 60 degrees from the tee

    Usually golf starts with tee shot. To make a tee shot, I set the ball on the tee. And I prepare a driver club to hit the ball. In tee shot, we set the club at 60 degrees from the tee with proper distance to foot. And then, we make a swing to hit the ball as if we were making baseball hitting.

    If the underlined is wrong, please let me know.

    Note my corrections above. I'm not a golf fan but I think a round of golf starting when someone tees off.

    Thanks a lot. Would you let me know why you don't need a comma after the two "then"?

    Re: at 60 degrees from the tee

    I am not a golfer, but I would say:

    A round of golf starts with a tee shot.

    I am not at all sure what the underlined part means. (I don't understand the rest of that sentence either.)

    Hello, keannu,

    I think that's a wrong preposition.

    [The preposition was fine. I was wrong.]

    "from" was fine.
