I am curious to know what everyone uses as their method for how high they tee the ball, particularly with their driver. This last season I tried different heights and found many different results. What really surprised me the most I guess was after watching a friend of mine in a league who uses his driver well all the time off the deck in the fairway on long par 5's, I decided to begin trying it. I was shocked at finding that I was able to hit long and straight as well, which through off everything I had felt about needing to tee the ball high when using the driver. So, what are your thoughts and methods? Thanks

I get best results with the ball aligned at the heel of my right foot (lefty) and the ball teed 1/2 above the top line of the face when the sole is on the ground at address.

No method.  Depends on what type of shot I want to hit.

I tee it low, so the ball is level with the sweet spot when the club is soled. FWIW I know I am giving up yards this way, but I'm more accurate so I take the trade off.

Higher for high bombs and draws, lower for blocks and fades.  Low like Thrill when I want to practice low bullets (don't practice these often...).
