Noooooooo .....

 

Perhaps, I should draw my boss' face (or imprint a picture of his), line it up, and hit.   I think I will gain 10 yards (or shank it terribly due to too much tension).   It'd be worth an experiment.

I don't. I also mark my ball with my initials in an obnoxiously large manner, so getting ink on my clubface doesn't bother me. Sharpie isn't really permanent, anyway.

Im one of those guys who puts the ball on the tee so I can read the brand name and #. I can't explain it but I like looking at the number. When I used to shoot clays I would always load my o/u both shells with name facing up also so I guess I'm weird like that.

Here is how I set my tee balls. The logo faces the intended line of flight. The club face is then parallel to the logo.

 

 

It takes no extra time and helps me with alignment.

With the driver, irons and putter I line up the Pro-v 1 with my desired line with the text reading upside down. I will say that if the line as a little off when step back to practice swing I won't fix it... and yea I know, major OCD

I just put the ball on the tee, stand behind it, take a look, no waggle, no practice swing, then hit one down the middle. The ball is round and manufacturing has improved so much any alignment is just wasting time. Collectively these nuances are killing the games enjoyment for others.

When I voted yes I was mostly thinking about how high I set the tee.  However, when I think about it I try to set the ball so I don't hit my identification marks to keep them from needing to be redone after every round.

When I clicked on the thread, I was trying to figure out how you could tee the ball up differently. I had no idea that people actually rotated their ball around to look a certain way before hitting it!

absolutely -

  • ball is always on top.  never under, or to one side or another
  • tee always pointy side DOWN, it seems to stay in place better and the ball is easier to place
  • I try to always place the assembly in an area I plan to swing the club head thru.  Amazing how that improves my quality of contact.

 

 

 

(I actually put straight green alignment marks on my ball.  Just because I like the straight line.  But I don't use them for putting or driving.  I just decided that's my mark and they are easy to see when I'm looking for my ball after a shot)
