HOW HIGH IS TOO HIGH WITH A DRIVER?

Hitting it anywhere above the sweet spot is "too high" if that's what you're asking.

I guess I worded that funny now that I see the question . I have been driving the ball off the tee quite high and still getting distance but I think I am losing distance with teeing the ball up too high. Playing Saturday and I will start teeing the ball a little lower to get more of a direct drive hopefully, any other suggestions?

Not sure, depends on your ball flight. I would say go find a fitter and get some numbers. With out seeing your ball flight first hand I can't give any advice, you might be hitting it perfectly fine with regards to the height.

Average drive is 250-290 just lately noticed I've been losing some yards . Love my driver when I'm on I can hit the fairway all day all start with a lower tee setting . Is it true with the bottom of the club on the ground you want half the ball over the top of the club when teed up?

That's how I tee my golf ball up... 1/2 a ball width over the height of my driver when it's resting on the ground.

    • When is the weather "too bad" to play?
      Its the same at Stoneleigh, recovered from aerification, and the rough just loved all the rain.  Member-Guest is next weekend, fairways will be important.
    • Jr Tournament play?
      For the junior tournaments where I worked as a rules official, the parents were not allowed near the players or their balls.  They had the status of being observers or fans, nothing more.  No coaching was allowed, and certainly they did not race ahead to the area where the balls lay after a stroke.  In fact the only carts allowed for family were for those who were disabled - all others walked.  Such potential interaction as you describe would not have been allowed.
    • The Dan Plan - 10,000 Hours to Become a Pro Golfer (Dan McLaughlin)
      Dan is the first to my knowledge to formally challenge the Talent Code, a non gifted individual who would commit to 10,000 hours of practice with the established goal of being a PGA Tour player.   Many members here that claim they want to be a pro golfer are younger kids who show some potential in the sport and are deluded or convinced into believing they have the raw talent required to become a professional.  I don't think we've had someone actually document their journey with the level of transparency Dan provided in the beginning of his "plan".   I started following him later in his plan and while I was initially rooting for him I eventually started to question his approach and commitment, as well as his transparency in his progress.  
    • Using the tee box markers?
      The player is not using equipment in an unusual manner since the  tee marker is not equipment - it is nothing more than an obstruction which is deemed to be fixed (i.e. immovable) when playing his first stroke from the teeing ground of the hole being played.  After that they are movable obstructions.   There is no prohibition about standing on an obstruction, immovable or movable, with one or both feet, when making a stroke as long as nothing is done that would constitute building a stance. As far as being a device, the all encompassing dictionary definition goes well beyond the meaning of the term as it is applied in the Rules of Golf.  A device is an obstruction, and it may be equipment if it meets that definition, but not all obstructions are equipment or devices. This is simply a case of trying to read into the rules something that isn't there.  If it isn't prohibited, then it is permitted.  I see nothing that would lead me to rule against putting one foot on or against a tee marker, provided that the tee marker doesn't move during the process.
    • Chipping from tight lies?
      I agree. Bounce is your friend. I had a pretty straight forward punch shot yesterday.  For short punch shots I like to use more of a pitch motion. An 8 iron has about 4 degrees of bounce. #NoGlide  In terms of difficult lies. I'd say a soggy fairway is the worst. I rather hit of concrete than soggy fairway. It's just tough to let the club glide when the ground has that much give to it.
