Do you place the ball on the tee a specific way each time you tee it up?

Noooooooo .....

Perhaps, I should draw my boss' face (or imprint a picture of his), line it up, and hit.   I think I will gain 10 yards (or shank it terribly due to too much tension).   It'd be worth an experiment.

I don't. I also mark my ball with my initials in an obnoxiously large manner, so getting ink on my clubface doesn't bother me. Sharpie isn't really permanent, anyway.

Im one of those guys who puts the ball on the tee so I can read the brand name and #. I can't explain it but I like looking at the number. When I used to shoot clays I would always load my o/u both shells with name facing up also so I guess I'm weird like that.

Here is how I set my tee balls. The logo faces the intended line of flight. The club face is then parallel to the logo.

It takes no extra time and helps me with alignment.

With the driver, irons and putter I line up the Pro-v 1 with my desired line with the text reading upside down. I will say that if the line as a little off when step back to practice swing I won't fix it... and yea I know, major OCD

I just put the ball on the tee, stand behind it, take a look, no waggle, no practice swing, then hit one down the middle. The ball is round and manufacturing has improved so much any alignment is just wasting time. Collectively these nuances are killing the games enjoyment for others.

When I voted yes I was mostly thinking about how high I set the tee.  However, when I think about it I try to set the ball so I don't hit my identification marks to keep them from needing to be redone after every round.

When I clicked on the thread, I was trying to figure out how you could tee the ball up differently. I had no idea that people actually rotated their ball around to look a certain way before hitting it!

absolutely -

  • ball is always on top.  never under, or to one side or another
  • tee always pointy side DOWN, it seems to stay in place better and the ball is easier to place
  • I try to always place the assembly in an area I plan to swing the club head thru.  Amazing how that improves my quality of contact.

(I actually put straight green alignment marks on my ball.  Just because I like the straight line.  But I don't use them for putting or driving.  I just decided that's my mark and they are easy to see when I'm looking for my ball after a shot)

I'm that guy that lines up hit ball with my stance to compensate for my fade. If I'm disturb on my routine. I start over. It takes about 30 seconds.,but that's only on the tee shot

I use those tees that are a present height above the ground. If the ball has a sharpie mark on it, I might set the ball so that Mark is on the impact side of the ball. The mark will transfer to the club face, and give me some idea where the club face is impacting the ball. 

Other than that, no not really, and is why I voted "no". .

I dont. If anything, I try to avoid too much graphics, but mostly I don't set it up in a way where the graphic lines up perfectly with my setup. It can throw me off when the ball looks perfectly placed to line up something. So my goal is for something that looks irregular, which goes for most.

I also do it this way. No particular reason, I just always have, and so it’s part of the routine now.

I disagree! People can hit any shade or color of golf ball that they wish. I was taught to tee the ball so you would hit it right in the logo! This ADDS to my enjoyment! I don't like seeing anything but white on a drive or putt. The fact that I can arrange things to be so, ADDS to my enjoyment of the game!

Wow, guess I’ll be a bit more covert about my ball placement; hell the ball has an arrow on it, so it’s on top and pointing far and sure. That’s quick and easy, it’s a bit of pain when playing craps. 

Aloha,

I voted yes.  If the ball has a logo, I place that toward the impact side.  No logo?  The blank side toward the impact.

I have deviated from this now and again so I am not wedded to this process but the two or three seconds of spinning the ball in my hand prior to placing it in the tee has pretty much become routine.
