The Perfect Tee Height
Posted 27 April 2006 - 01:45 PM
What I do is put my driver next to where I'm teeing the ball- left hand has a tee and the ball on it, the right is holding my driver so the club head is near the tee spot.

Just about every pro I've ever seen does it this way.
Unless you switch drivers each day, that's hands down the best way to obtain a consistant tee height IMHO.
Hope that helps.

If anyone is struggling with consistent tee height. Buy tees designed for it, like:

I use the blue ones which are 3 1/4". I insert the tee to the point where the bottom of the blue ring is touching the ground and it is the perfect height for me with my 905R. You can get a bag of 75 for about $5 online or at almost any retail store. The only thing I don't like about them is that they are somewhat fragile compared to other wooden tees. They break pretty easily so be sure to have several on hand.
Good luck. And by the way, it is perfectly legal to mark your tee with a Sharpie. I've even seen someone who puts a piece of tape around the tee to mark the ideal insertion depth.

This is slightly off topic, however this is one of the things about the USGA that REALLY bugs me. There seem to be double standards with the approval of products and the rules.
If legal tees can't influence the movement of the ball, then shouldn't the Epoch's and Rip Sticks be illegal? They launch the ball with "less spin and deflection" resulting in longer and straighter drives. Right?
Longer and straighter sound like influencing the movement of the ball to me . . . or does the USGA also think that these tees are bogus? Clearly they're approved since week after week there are huge cases of them shipped out to to the Tour.
