I've been golfing for a few years now but have always had trouble getting the same tee height for my drives. I have the swing mechanics down for the drive but the tee height is throwing me off. I've noticed that if I tee it too low, I lose distance on my shot but if I tee it too high then I pop it up and still lose distance. Sometimes I'll even slice it, also. Does anyone know of any tools out there that can help with this. I've seen the Brush T's but would rather use a regular golf tee - the Brush T's seem somewhat bulky and distracting. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
I just picked up 2 packs of 2 and really like them. They are basically indestructible - like some of the rubber tees you'll see at the driving range installed into the matts. Not the exact rubber - but close. Also, they guarantee life of the tee - and if it breaks, will replace it for free. Oh and some of the funds will go to charity.
Cool - lots of suggestions, thanks guys!
Beachcomber - Thanks for the suggestion - looks like a cool design but I'd rather stick to a regular traditional golf tee, maybe it's the superstition/stubborn golfer in me!
Golfingbuddy - Thanks for the suggestion - the TZ looks like a pretty handy device, I'm going to contact them and get one and try it out.
Bullitt5339 - I've tried the pre marked golf tees and they're pretty good but the only thing is it's somewhat hard to see when the colors disappear since the ball is on top and your hand is in the way.
I buy the same brand of tees and use them the same way. Works for me.
I do pretty much the same thing as teamroper. I put the ball and tee in my hand and when I press it down I wait until my ring finger starts hitting the ground. Sometimes I stop there and other times I want the ball teed up a bit higher or lower. You should be able to tell my looking at it and setting up to the ball whether it's too high or low.
