The Perfect Golf Tee For Your Swing: How To Choose The Right Size

There is no one definitive answer when it comes to what size golf tee to use. You’ll want to use at least 150 words when introducing your blog post about this topic, so make sure to give some insights into your own personal experiences and preferences. Ultimately, the size of your golf tee will depend on your own height and arm length.

Which tee should I use?

If you hit your driver under 200 yards, play from the closest tee. If you hit from 200-225 the next farthest tee, and so on. When you are hitting 275+ accurately you should be playing the farthest tees back.

Does tee height affect driving distance?

Getting the right driver tee height can improve your distance on your golf shots. Many golfers go to extremes with their tee height, and either go too low or too high. A driver tee height that is the right height will help you to hit the ball further.

How should a beginner tee off?

Do you hit a 3 wood off a tee?

Do pro golfers use plastic tees?

Professional golfers tend to use the free tees that they are given at tournaments. Trust me, there are always thousands on-hand for players and caddies to grab and they are always wooden tees.

Do plastic tees damage golf clubs?

While plastic tees are created with durable plastic, they can easily bend and lose their strength from wear and tear. This can lead to a golfer spending more time trying to bend a plastic tee back into shape than trying to hit the golf ball off the top of it.

Should you tee up your irons?

Whenever anything gets in the way of the club and the ball at impact – like blades of grass or even early morning dew – the ball comes off with less backspin, so it doesn’t behave predictably. As a general rule, tee up an iron shot so the ball is just above ground level.

Is a 250 yard drive good?

The average driving distance for a golfer with a 5 handicap or less is about 250 yards. You might think that’s kind of low for a good golfer but it’s pretty realistic for someone who isn’t a professional. If you hit the ball the average distance you’re really not that far away from the average distance of a scratch golfer.

What is the rule of 85 in golf?

The rule of 85 is a simple maths equation that determines what tee position you should hit from. If your age + current handicap is greater or equal to 85, then you should use the senior tees or the next closest set of tees.

When should I move to the blue tees?

A good rule of thumb to use is if you cannot reach the green on a par three in one shot because of distance, it is usually a sign that you should move up a tee. Also, the lower your handicap is, the further back you should be playing.

Can a golf tee add distance?

It’s all about friction. For golfers who hit on the ball at impact (positive angle of attack), the ball lifts cleanly off a traditional tee, thus reducing friction between the golf ball and the tee. That means no matter what tee is used, there’s no measurable difference in spin or distance between tee styles.

How high should a 7 iron go?

The loft on a seven iron is going to be around 34 degrees. This has changed quite a bit in the recent years with the introduction of the lower lofts in golf irons. In years past, you would have expected that the loft on a seven iron would be closer to 38 degrees.

Should I tee the ball high or low?

The ball should be highest off the ground for a driver. The general recommendation is that the bottom of the golf ball on a tee should be slightly below the top of the driver; for long and mid-irons, push the tee into the ground so that only about a quarter-inch is above ground.

Do pros use wooden or plastic tees?

Tour pros use wooden tee pegs and most tend to favor a plain white option so as not to distract their eyes when over the ball.

Can I use a tee to mark my ball on the green?

A ball-marker must be artificial, such as a tee, coin, the toe of your putter, or other small piece of equipment. A natural object like a leaf or twig may not be used as a ball-marker.
