I don't like the drill/screw method. Sure it works in many cases, but there will always be a few that blow out the surrounding good teak. I found the best method so far is to use a sharp carving knife with a 1" long blade. going with the grain of the bung, insert sharp blade into bung gently at a 45 degree angle. You will get a little chip out of the bung, now work you way across the bung progressively deeper till it pops out. Sometimes it's necessary to go at it from both sides of the bung, working towards the center.
