New Golf Tee

Recommended Posts

I am currently designing a new golf tee that will be more stable and prevent tip overs while teeing off. Also, the tee will be user friendly as we are designing it so that the ball is less likely to fall off the tee. We are trying to justify the this problem, so if anyone could take this survey  it would be greatly appreciated.

I'd link to the URL, but it's against the policy of this site that I take advantage of the concentration of golfers while contributing nothing.

I've never had a problem w/ the Wal-Mart tee's that are $3.99 for a bag of 200. I do want to try the brush tee and maybe see how that works.

Some of the tallest plastic tees have only 3 apex points upon which sits our noble ball. If the tee is  tilted or off center slightly the ball is unstable and i have seen a few drop off such a  tee.  I prefer non-plastic tees and if i could figure out how to make a bamboo golf tee easily and cheaply i would be marketing that here in Asia. If you consider for a moment traditional wooden tees and how they might be made i believe the maker starts with a rectangular block of wood and carves away the excess. You can see that perhaps half the wood is actually wasted in the carving.  Each tee, one by one. What a chore.

There are plenty of bamboo tees available out there.....

Probably not going to get any love from the environmental types, but I love the stepped blue and yellow tees.just push into the ground and it tees up the same hight every time.

I have never used those tee's but I do like the idea of consistency when teeing up your ball. I pretty much tee mine the same but I know its not exact every time but I would like to try these tees.

There my favorite type. I tried a long white type today, it looked like it had about 4 or 5 tiny knobs on it, it was fine but I needed to mark it to get the same height every time

Those are the ones i normally use. Long white tees that aren't the best shape but they work for me. Like you said i need to mark them to tee the same height every time though.

    • As a disclaimer I wont bother with techinal terms for this.    Exessive stretching puts the muscle in an elongated or "full rom" state. Basically its as long as the muscle can get without tearing. More rom sounds pretty good eh? What could go wrong? The problem is that when the muscle is stretched to this point it doesnt have the same ability to stretch anymore. So that tightness people are so keen to get rid of is actually the muscles inherent stretch reflex that protects the muscle, tendons and ligaments from tearing. The muscle is designed to stretch first to protect everything else. If you live a sedentery lifestyle and that stretch reflex isnt used it can tighten up too much but even then youre best off doing dynamic stretching because thats how the muscle is supposed to work in the first place. This principle is why it isnt recommended to do static stretching before a workout. So really you shouldnt attempt to increase the static rom as much as the dynamic rom.  
    • It is and it isnt. For the most part Id say it isnt. At the end of the day it really is as simple as calories in and calories out BUT because that piece of cake is not particularly nutritious nor does it take very long to digest you tend to need to eat more cake to say full which tends to promote overeating. You pretty much have to decide to stay hungry for a while to compensate.  
    • When did I ever say I was talking about them using to RUN FASTER. Never. If the ball flies further guess what. The club was moving faster. THEY GOT FASTER. Yes steroids have a multitude of benefits for an athlete but for the sake of this discussion I didint think it was relevant to list every one of them. For sure they benefitted from the faster recovery aswell as the increased performance.   Dont tell me about my logic when its obvious you havent even read what Ive said. To quote myself: "Also keep in mind were not talking about going from Bubba to Arnold here. Theres a healthy middle point for optimal performance. Tour players just do not look like athletes(on average)." "Youre always going to find exceptions" You are uninformed to put it nicely. 450*10 does not happen all the time outside of powerlifting gyms. Especially not for a guy weighing 165. His estimated max is around 600-640 lb. Please dont get started on the way estimations work. The american record is like 700 for the 165. Either way he is very strong both in relative and absolute terms and its a very impressive lift. Ofcourse there comes a point where if he bulks up too much it wont help thats exactly what Ive said. At no point have is said tour players should look like bodybuilders. Infact to quote myself again: "Strength = speed potential. Speed athletes are not inherently going for size its just a byproduct of getting stronger and faster. If it was we would have meat balls like IFBB pros breaking records at everything speed related. The whole bulking up too much is pretty much a myth for natural athletes anyways."
    • Yes Daniel Im is a CP-ish player with kind of an inline downswing, he likes the way "swinging left" with his body feels. He does hit up a little with the driver. CP is not optimal for clubs over a 6 iron....typically. It's just a much easier pattern, easier way to swing and hit all the trajectories, especially with today's equipment. Hogan didn't have the left arm as far out as Mac wants it and Snead hit pull draws. Like I just said CP isn't good for the longer clubs, Mac never played a tournament going CP, he went with CF fades.  It's also a complicated pattern, lots of sequencing and movements have to be in order and most importantly you need a lot of speed to do it functionally. I could make the case Hogan had more CF pieces than CP pieces. Anyway, I agree with what @iacas has been posting. Mac's info isn't the answer to the golf swing, it's an attempt in the right direction but there is better and more functional information out there.
    • Oh, gosh, on the range tonight, I discovered that my address position was too far away from ball, and I had lowered my hands at address. I was setup for failure. Made  a few minor changes, and was hitting fairways high again. Now I can determine whether the shafts fit on some new Tour Edge woods - I fear the regular is too soft. Another winter project - shafts. I want to be done with clubs.
