Golf Tee Of The Future.......?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Has anyone got any thoughts of a golf tee that can be used on a variety of surfaces?

i know you can get winter tees , they are like little upturned buckets , never used one though

I remember a few weeks ago watching "The Greatest Game Ever Played" with Shia Labeouf and was intrigued by the way the tees they used back in the day. They used a little cup similar to a shot glass, filled it with sand and compacted it against the ground.

 

It made me wonder if I could use a double shot glass (since I like to tee it up a little higher) to have the same type of tee. Also I wonder if this affects the flight of the ball in any way. Thoughts?

it would be worth a try. Maybe the seed sand they have could work? I just don't know if it would pack well.

That would be the golf tee of the past. Sand tees are definitely no worse than wood or plastic tees and could be worse, so why use them?

 

Anyway, topic, please. ;-)

With the tradition of the game I doubt it will ever be played on anything but grass. Because of that there's not much reason to reinvent the tee. There's all sorts of newer tees out there now. I use the low resistance tees and have wanted to try the 4 More Yards tees. Once in a while I can feel the old wood tees if I swing through it if the tee box is hard. More so with long irons than anything else. Could be in my head but when that happens I feel like I lose a bit of speed.

I always play the game on grass - what other surfaces would you use?

like a winter tee matt, which would be astro turf

Try buying one of those green foam blocks women use for arts and crafts. Insert a standard tee deep into that (or your standard tee height) and place that on your mat.

Get those driving range tees and cut them to desired height.

You could use a Coors Light or Diet Coke can like John Daly. Plenty of those around.....

I had a golf pro at our course growing up who would remove the small pink eraser out of a number 2 pencil. Stick the sharp end of the pencil into the ground and tee a golf ball on it. Then take a modified swing with a baseball grip and hammer the driver using the ~ 8" tee. It was a way to get some laughs and people excited on the golf range after things started to wind down for the day.

Has anyone tried those "brush tees"?  I use plain white tees and just haven't spent the money to see if there is a difference overall.

I bought the variety pack and I like them. Not sure it does anything for increased distance but they do feel different. I've only used them for one round and then went back to my usual tee. Mostly because I spent more time looking for the them than I should have. I whacked one about 10y past the end of the tee box. They fly like a badminton birdie.

Part of my concern was also the cost of the brush tees..  For the same price of the brush tees I can buy a decent amount of regular wooden tees and I wasnt sure how durable the brushes were/are.

FWIW I didn't break or lose any. Just wasn't willing to leave any behind so I hunted them down instead of walking away like I usually do. IMO they were pretty durable.
