For hybrids and long irons, I tee it high enough so that the ball just clears the ground and is fully supported by the tee, about 1/8".  With short irons, I don't use a tee.

Just checked out a couple of these images.  I must say, I was wrong.  This conversation has been helpful for me.  I do apologize for stating my opinion as fact, especially considering it was wrong.  I

Why are you changing ball position when on the tee? You should keep the same ball position as when your hitting out of the fairway. If it's forward in your stance, you are hitting it on the ups

I tee the ball really low with irons, i just do it because i am gauranteed the same conditions each time on a par 3. IF you throw a ball down, you don't know if the ball will rest in a small indent, o

I never use a new tee for par 3s or par 4s where I use an iron. I have so many broken tees that I made myself or picked up laying around, I never need to buy tees for irons ever again. Even for my 3W and hybrid, broken off tees are fine.

This is me to a "tee"..... Pretty much guaranteed to find a broken tee on the par 3's at my home course, if not then I've got back ups in the bag.

I like to have the ball just enough off the ground to be completely supported by the tee.

For iron shots, probably 1/8" to 1/4" or so.  I play some pretty long par 3s that require hybrids(for me).  For those, I tee it just a bit higher so it probably is a full 1/4" or slightly more.

    • And the ones who say nothing, are lacking them.
    • Oh my God. I've never seen that before. That's actually kind of hilarious. 2 feet away. "Pick it up." ... 8 feet away. "Pick it up." ... Barely on the green. "Pick it up." ... On the teebox. "Pick it up."  I really think I would have said something. "Come on, guys. You cannot concede a putt to your playing partner."  Those guys must have some serious cojones to even try that. 
    • IMHO, a more appropriate question to ask is "Should Louis have aimed for a bunker on the right on the 17th hole?" It was nuts trying to even flirt with that hazard on the 17th hole.
    • WTF???  Where did my swing go? I could not hit a side of a barn today.  Nothing was working.  Wow!!!  I hope it was only a fluke and not start of a slump. Shot 98 (70.9/137, 6500 yds).
    • More drill work yesterday. The backswing is improving but still could be better, longer and a bit slower. I’m trying to be less out at A2 and have the same cup in my wrist at A4 I had at address. I’m exaggerating the height a bit to keep it high during a full swing. The next drill is trying to get the feel of landing soft on the left knee as it moves toward the target then snapping straight and pushing my left hip back to create speed. I’m doing okay here, but my hips could be more forward at A9 and I should keep the primary axis tilt a bit longer (staying down). The DTL view shows I’m steepening a bit during the pump too, so I need to be careful of that. The combo drill brings both together. But I notice that my left knee is not quite doing the same snap and my hands are starting to turn over even though it feels the same. Feel ain’t real. These will be my drills for a while.
