Tees Me

The Epoch tee is new and independently tested. Forget brush tees, baby!

Every once in a blue moon, we see some hack using an expensive brush tee trying to add another foot or so to his monster 220 yard drives. That’s all well and good, but now a company called Evolve Golf has introduced the epoch-3 tees. These bad-boys are sleek and stylish, and should be available in September of ’04.

Backed by some impressive independent test results, these tees just might actually provide you some distance and accuracy, and you won’t look like a fancy-boy packing them in your bag.

P.S. We’ve previously reviewed the Brush-T here.


The Brush-T guarantees straighter, longer drives. What doesn’t these days?

brusht.jpgThe Brush-T claims that it can help you hit longer, straighter drives by eliminating much of the friction between ball and tee:

The unique qualities of the Brush-T mean that the side spin or interference, all too often associated with plastic and wooden tees, can be eliminated. The bristles provide raised support for the ball, but still give unprecedented flexibility. Independent testing in San Diego and California, showing a marked improvement in the dispersion rate, thereby delivering greater accuracy.

Let’s ignore for a moment the fact that San Diego is in California. Let’s also ignore that “a marked improvement in the dispersion rate” can’t “deliver” greater accuracy, it is greater accuracy. And hey, if we want to be technical, it’s not greater accuracy but greater consistency. A loose group of balls in the middle of the fairway beats a tight cluster 20 yards right, doesn’t it? 🙂
