What do you use with the big guns...
I've tried lots of different kinds. Currently I have been using the Wedge Tees, but I have ordered some Rockettees, that haven't come yet.

I got a pack of brush tees for X-Mas. I would have never thought of buying them, but now I love 'em! Played on X-Mas day and was surprised how nice they were. Came in a pack of 3, and I don't really think there is a way to break them?

I play the zero friction not because I buy that bull but because they don't break and I don't have to carry so many tees..... (2-3/4" for driver 1-1/2" for irons)

Zero friction 2 3/4" are the best for the woods off the tee - they do not break, period. I don't know that I buy the claim that they help you with longer drives but I still like them better than wood tees.

wood tee's for me. Long for driver. Short for 3 wood, hybrid, iron. But most importantly they have to be RED!!! nothing else will do.

I've been using the Zero Friction tees for about a year. They do break, but very infrequently and usually because of a bad swing. They're a composite material so they will bend, but you can straighten them back out. I also use the tees that Disney gives out by the handful. They're made of the same material, but have a sharper point than the Zero Friction tees, so it's easier for me to clean the grooves with them.

Arbitrage, i received some Velocitees for Xmas and thought they were a novelty thing! They are put in at a slant, away from the club, so the driver goes up the tee to the ball! How did u like them? I can't see how u can get a consistent height all the time? I got my Rockettees that i ordered in my original post, but haven't tried them yet (a little thing called Winter got in the way) but they seem like they are very cool. Hollow plastic, so they bend and don't come out of the ground, with a coloured band around the bottom for a consistent tee height. In the spring I'll post how they work...

    • From those tees, a driver is a layup for me. If I were playing more forward tees, I would probably still layup. No need to bring big numbers into the picture on this one.
    • I'd hit a knockdown with a 5W off the tee and pitch it up with a wedge. Good looks at birdie. At worst a par. Going for it might net an occasional eagle but also could end up in bogeyville.  But let's be real. I have no idea what my carry with clubs with a 265 carry would be. Using my current distances, I'd hit a low 3W off the tee and a wedge shot or depending upon where my tee shot ended up I might run it up given the wind and all.
    • I hit a low knockdown/punch 3 iron aimed in between the two bunkers on the left. Playing it again in those conditions, I would do the same thing. Since I'm taking a bit off of the 3 iron and it was pretty into the wind, the back bunker wasn't reachable, and I almost never draw or hook with the 3 iron so not worried about the left bunker either. It had a bit more fade than I wanted but I hit it fairly solid and it ended up roughly around the red dot below, which left me with a 40 yd pitch for my second shot.  I think it landed roughly between the yellow line and the right rough and had some fade spin and caught the downslope that starts just up and to the right of the yellow line, you can kinda see where the mowing pattern changes. Can you consistently carry your driver at least 260+ ? Just a month ago in your blog you said you were working on eliminating the slice but it still haunts you every so often, seems like a lot of risk for you to take on considering the area just a couple steps right of the green is most likely going to be a lost ball, two weeks ago you said you only hit 2 out of every 10 bunker shots well, and the fact that the wind was into and off the left which would make any fade/slice move even further right. Why not just hit a long iron/hybrid or 3 wood out there in the 220-240 range and have a short wedge/pitch shot left? 
    • Played in my first tournament of the summer.  Felt a little nervous on the first few holes.  Full swing and short game went well. Course management went poorly in a few spots.  Was -4 going into the hardest hole on the course (#17) and I got too aggressive and hit my drive through the fairway, ended up getting a double and finished the round at -2, 70.  Highlights were wedge shots.  They were sticky all day. Swing is feeling good. Main thought recently has been to feel like the path is coming straight and then left after impact.  For some reason, in my stance, distance from the ball has been getting too close.  So I paid attention to that today.  Putting, which had been not great lately, I focused on my stroke more than the aim.  It seemed to settle me and I was able to make a few more than usual.
    • Yeah, not too bad. There is some terrible stuff around the green. Your Shot Zone with the driver is going to be significantly larger than the green itself.
