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

I remember once, a LONG time ago, Lee Trevino saying that he always hit the ball on the name.  He did it because at that time the shell of the ball had a seam, and he didn't want to hit it on the seam.  Every since then, I've teed the ball up to hit it on the name.  This also lets me see only white, with no other "stuff" to confuse me.

I mostly just tee it high and let it......slice... Not as much anymore but I do tee it high and often point the arrow towards the fairway in no certain accuracy.

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.

Four years later and the answer is still no, though I've stopped marking my balls since it's rare that I run into another person playing Snell.

Unless you are playing with other Sandtrappers.

I've adopted use of those 4-prong/tip plastic tee's and ink marking a height.  I really don't know if it helps much, but in keeping with the theory that establishing a set-up routine is beneficial, it's what I'm doing.

Yea that happens once in a while. I'd have to mark then.

BAZINGA! This is exactly what my Uncle, who was a country club pro pre WWII, told me! There was a seam in the cover of the ball and you did not want to hit the ball there. So, tee it up so you'd hit the ball right on the logo!

I've held on to that to this day. Whether it makes a difference now I have no idea, but I do like looking at nothing but white!

I usually use the notched tees that always go in to the same height, and vary the size depending on which club I am teeing off with. 2 1/2 inch tees for driver and 3 wood, then progressively shorter for hybrids or irons.

I also line up the directional markers on the ball with my target line, as a visual aid.

YES. First i search for an aiming point and place my tee 1 feet behind it.
Second I place the bridgestone ball logo pararel to the club face. Reading it straight from behind de ball.

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
