I've been golfing for a few years now but have always had trouble getting the same tee height for my drives.  I have the swing mechanics down for the drive but the tee height is throwing me off.  I've noticed that if I tee it too low, I lose distance on my shot but if I tee it too high then I pop it up and still lose distance.  Sometimes I'll even slice it, also.  Does anyone know of any tools out there that can help with this.  I've seen the Brush T's but would rather use a regular golf tee - the Brush T's seem somewhat bulky and distracting. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I saw those, too but they look a little clunky and looks like they might take some yardage off the ball since they're thick.  Anything out there to set the ball with just a regular golf tee?

I just picked up 2 packs of 2 and really like them.  They are basically indestructible - like some of the rubber tees you'll see at the driving range installed into the matts.  Not the exact rubber - but close.  Also, they guarantee life of the tee - and if it breaks, will replace it for free.  Oh and some of the funds will go to charity.

Why buy anything at all?

I use Pro-Tees that have writing down the length of them, and use the letters as a guide as to how deep to put them in the ground.

You can buy tees with different heights marked (black lines). I just use a magic marker on my tees.

Chi-Chi used to put tape on the tee to mark the height. It would also help with preventing them from breaking.

Bullitt5339 has the right idea

Pro Tee and just remember what letter to go down to!

That said I also sometimes use the small red fixed height tees for my irons.

These are what I use... I just put 'em in the ground until I don't see the yellow any more and I'm good to go. They have different lengths depending on what you like so if you like to tee it higher or lower there should be an option for you.

Cool - lots of suggestions, thanks guys!

Beachcomber - Thanks for the suggestion - looks like a cool design but I'd rather stick to a regular traditional golf tee, maybe it's the superstition/stubborn golfer in me!

Golfingbuddy - Thanks for the suggestion - the TZ looks like a pretty handy device, I'm going to contact them and get one and try it out.

Bullitt5339 - I've tried the pre marked golf tees and they're pretty good but the only thing is it's somewhat hard to see when the colors disappear since the ball is on top and your hand is in the way.

I buy the same brand of tees and use them the same way.  Works for me.

I put the ball on top of the tee and into the palm of my hand, then let the tip of my thumb barely touch the tip of my middle finger and start pushing the tee in.  When I feel the grass just touch the back of my middle finger, I stop pushing.    Seems to put me at the right spot 99% of the time....

I do pretty much the same thing as teamroper. I put the ball and tee in my hand and when I press it down I wait until my ring finger starts hitting the ground. Sometimes I stop there and other times I want the ball teed up a bit higher or lower. You should be able to tell my looking at it and setting up to the ball whether it's too high or low.

    • It is likely that a certain percentage of golfers are infected with the virus. So it is a good thing that they are, at least for a few hours per day, removed from the general population inhabiting restaurants, coffee shops, public places. Lucky for us our governor is a golfer and his father-in-law is a golf pro.  Thus he has two people in his ear giving him perspective.
    • I do get a bad feeling that we're going to see a lot more of this fairly soon in the U.S. The numbers they've been announcing in the last few weeks don't sound good. Maybe the politicians are trying to get to the election without upsetting would-be voters more than they have to. A long frosty winter spent indoors 99% of the time sounds like a terrible idea to me as far as the virus is concerned. Then again, us in the northern parts of America don't get much golf in the winter anyway, so I do feel badly for @Nail.     
    • Streaming is convenient, if you can watch while the event/program is being streamed. I have an NBC sports gold golf subscription, and for those times when I happen to be doing nothing else, it is really nice to watch live golf, if they happen to be showing featured groups at that particular time. That's about twice a month for maybe an hour.  For those times, I really like it.   It's great to be able to get it on my iPhone, my iPad or on my MBP. The problem is that most of my free viewing time is hours after the live event (or the next day), so I have my DVR pre-programmed to record PGA and European Tour broadcasts. Nothing else going on at 9 p.m.? That's usually when I can watch a little golf. With this move to all-things-streaming, I'm concerned that there will be a a move to drop/reduce the broadcasts (majors excepted), meaning I'll be out of luck.  NBC sports gold gives some highlights of the day's round, but so far their "full event replays" is extremely limited and appears to be several days delayed. What do you think?  Are the Golf Channel's days as a separate channel numbered?
    • I don't suppose to know the correct answer to this pandemic.  But, like most, have an opinion. My opinion is that closing golf courses is not going to do much to minimize the spread of Covid-19. Especially if the proper measures are taken by the course management to avoid the contact with the virus.  Almost all of the courses here have pool noodles in the holes, no ball washers, no rakes for the traps, allow one person motorized golf carts (trollies?), and masks required to enter the clubhouse/proshops.   I have also observed a change, not mandated by Government, in golfers' behavior.  No handshakes, no high fives, and no picking up your fellow foursome's golf balls or clubs for them.  I only point this out because I think this observation says that given the opportunity to play most golfers will play, but behave to be as safe as possible. Finally there is no way to be 100% safe in life.  Today, the probability of dying of this virus is small, even for an old guy like me. The consequences of being locked down with no outlets for stress is pretty well documented.  These consequences ought to be balanced against the probability of contracting the virus for a given activity.  But that isn't the Doctors' job, but it is the job of Government to make these trade offs.  But many don't and take the path that seem the "safe way", when in fact it well may not be the safest way for the individuals.
