My Member Review

I was able to take the Tee Claw to one of our open local ranges on Sunday. As stated above, I cut down a few tees ahead of time to the right height so I wouldn't have to do it at the range.

I set the Tee Claw in the mat below then put my driver next to it to get the right height. This mat is an All Turf mat, which is similar to the Real Feel mats with a little less dense weave. The mat is made of woven fibers.


At the range, the first thing I noticed was this range has two types of mats; a cheap imitation turf mat where the rubber tee goes and a tighter weave mat. The Tee Claw had no issue with the woven mat, but would not grab the cheap mat fibers. The video below shows this. The cheap mat only has fibers that run vertically and are not woven together.

Undaunted, I used the woven mat for the test. I set the Tee Claw up with just one lanyard pulled straight back. This distance is about 30 inches. I hooked the tee under the mat with a tee as is suggested in the Tee Claw site video.


The tee fits snug into the Tee Claw base. I used my driver to test the set up. The Tee Claw moved after the shot, but the tee stayed in place. I was worried that I would lose the tee, but this didn't happen. This will save on tees if this happens routinely. I took three swings with this set up. The Tee Claw came loose after the shot, but stayed on the mat.


Next, I set up the Tee Claw with two lanyards. The second lanyard was set up as a guide for my swing path. This will come in handy as a training aid.

After hitting, the tee stayed in. The Tee Claw moved. You can see below, it recoiled and twisted a bit. It took a few seconds to untangle it and set it back up. If you are the kind of player who rapid fire hits balls, this may get annoying. But if you are like me and take your time, the extra set up time is not an issue. If I am doing slow motion drills, I would use the rubber tee. But once I am hitting to observe ball flight, I would use the Tee Claw instead.


Lastly, mats seem to be the key for the Tee Claw to work. Good mats with a weave work the best. I have two mats at home, the All Turf mat I showed above and one I got when buying a Birdie Ball net. They are below. I apologize for not cleaning the dead grass off the mat! It was cold out. The Tee Claw had no issues with either of these mats. I would take the mat type into consideration when you purchase the Tee Claw.


At $15, the Tee Claw is not a big investment and worth the money for being able to set your tee height while practicing on mats. I've resorted to cutting down rubber tees to the right height before, but this is a better way. Try it out!

I am too late!.....I've been using something like this for years. I tethered a short piece of the inside core of a garden soaker  hose with a length of stretchable cord from the inside of a tent support rod, knotting it inside the hose and securing to a mat with a tied tee as pictured. the hose end is inserted into an existing tee holder hole in the mat. There may even be a photo in one of my older posts.  I even had a couple of different length hose ends tied in to the assembly for a quick change.  Now I see this at $15 ?  The claw looks like one of those clawed nuts available at any hardware store.   Dang! shudda had it patented.

    • Yeah, wind was coming strong from left to right and once it got above the tree line it moved over the sand trap and towards that single tree.  So my best estimate was somewhere between those two lines.  The group I was with made me re-tee since they were trying to beat me so I did since I didn't know the rule.  Now I know so that won't happen again.  I won anyway so all good.
    • “Well, nobody’s perfect.” Some Like It Hot.
    • Yeah, no. That only applies if you're not virtually certain it's in the penalty area.
    • I'd say the Rules allow the player to make his best judgement on this, look at 1.3b(2).
    • It’s kind of coulda woulda shoulda here don’t you think? The US team just played better for the most part in every session. Rahm played well but then lost to Scottie S in the singles. Rory played poorly, but he hasn’t been playing well lately compared to most of the US team. DJ, Morikawa, JT, BD, Koepka, Cantley all rose to the challenge. Even the coaches picks played well, Spieth, Berger and Harris. Westwood stunk it up when it counted, which is disappointing.  You can look back and come up with scenarios where the Euro team could have one, but I could also come up with the opposite and have the US winning more. It’s all just Monday Morning Quarterbacking. The OWGR is a pretty good indicator of a players ability to win. The Euro team had fine players, but not as good as the US plain and simple. And the US had better pairings and strategy. Looks at the list. Official World Golf Ranking - Ranking
