I started with 6 at the course. 2 deformed, 1 broke, and lost another, in 9 holes.. They arent perfect, and they're hard toget the ball to balance on. I was using painted tees, but they were leaving scuffs on my new driver, anyone have a solution?

Damn impressive. I have played 12 rounds with the same 2 Zero Frictions in my pocket (that includes hitting irons off of them). When they bend, bend them back!!.

Today I found FOUR Zero Friction tees in the little box my home club has on the teeing area for broken tees, all unbroken. That's like a two-year supply!

Probably from people like me who get tired of trying to push them into hard ground (and just bending them), or trying to balance a ball on those 3 little prongs. If you don't get them in perfectly straight, the ball just won't stay. I have a half dozen in the tee pocket in my bag right now, but I never use them ( I can't resist picking up a free tee, even if I don't ever plan to use it..

) I can usually get 18 holes (or more) from one plain old wooden tee... I use standard length ones and only stick them in the ground about 1/4", just enough to stand up with the ball on them.

Good thought, but they were brand new.

So they weren't having problems with THOSE tees anyway. I don't have much trouble putting them into the ground straight enough to put the ball on the prongs, but I also don't use the long or super-long ones.

I hear that - I've only broken one so far this year. Those things are amazing.

I'm picking up some brush tees before I play next. I used one of my brothers last year and liked them. I borrowed one and gave it back to him after I played my 18. This year I tried his Zero Friction tees and I like them as well. I would have only used one if I didn't let someone else take a shot with one. I think they lost it. They hold up really well. I just find them a little harder to balance the ball on.

Before them I used good ol wood tees. They worked fine but I prefer the brush tees.

I use the Zero Friction tees, but the wood ones, not the composite ones. They have a tiny head compared to other wood tees. Really like them.

Given that I have shaved almost 6.5 strokes off my index this year , and am superstitious, I'll continue to use them.

I use wood. 2-3/4" to be exact. They're cheap, and I like cheap at this point in my life. Have a buddy that uses the zero friction tees, and he swears by them. Played a round with him last month, and he used one zero friction tee for all 18 holes. I used probably a dozen wooden tees.

Maybe, I just like the satisfaction of destroying things to compensate for not being able to hit the fairway. Go figure.

I use standard wood tees even with my oversized driver. For everything else I use a broken half tee that I usually find on the par three holes. The broken tee is my way of saving the environment.

I quite like wedge tees as they last for ever. I tend to line them up with the spine facing the direction i'm hitting so i don't get too much resistance through contact, however, some local pro told me to face the spine perpendicular to the direction i was hitting.. don't know why though.

Also, they come in some ridiculous colours so there is no way you can lose them !!!

The only tee I have ever bought is a wood tee. I tried my friend brush tee and hated it. It is so hard to balance the ball on the tee, when it gets old. The best tee ever is a wood tee.
