Is there something as the best tees or it really don't matter? Something that's more durable then others and if so can someone give me some names etc. I have a Walmart and dicks sporting goods by me. I'm using a SLDR 460 DRIVER.

I don't think there's a big difference in tees for most of us, no.  For now, the important thing the tee does for you is set the ball at the right height -- don't use the miniature ones for your driver.

Someone gave me a dozen of those brush tees a few years ago. 6 tall ones, and 6 short ones. The claim was less friction, and more distance. The ball goes just as far with a wooden tee, as it does with the brush tees for me.

The upside is the brush tees  last a very long time, and they come with a ball marker. Plus, as the bristles wear out, you trim them down, and continue using them. 

If I had to go buy tees right now, I'd buy the plain jane, white, wooden tees, in the short and long sizes.

I like the Martini tees. They don't give me any atvantage, but they are real durable. Been using the same tee for several months.

I use 2 3/4" natural wood tees.  I've picked up a couple plastic tees that were broke in half and use them on par 3s.  I don't break the wood tees too often anymore, usually only after half a dozen holes or if the ground is really stiff.

I prefer the ones with little or no sugar, maybe some lemon.  Who wants a big glug of pancake syrup on a hot day?

I use other people's tees. Folks leave all kinds of wood and the durable plastic ones on the range and on the course. For par threes I use a broken one left there

I use the plastic tees, I know Dick's sells them and I buy them off Amazon. I buy the little ones that are white and yellow and the taller ones that are blue and white. One package of the small one last 1 - 1.5 years and I can get a package a year of the big ones. I love them and barely have to buy tees anymore.

I like the plastic 3 prong tees with woods and driver, a par 3 tee shot hit with an iron MUST be hit with a broken tee found on the tee box.

Absolutely!  Today picked up two "Martini Tees", several plastic ones with various prongs & heads along with a handful of wood ones.  I never purchase tees; I give them away.

^^^^ Agreed - par 3 tee ball must be hit using broken tee found on the tee box

Pink plastic for my driver. Natural wooden for anything else. I won't use wooden tees with paint with my fairway wood or hybrid as it leaves marks on the face of the club!

One of the rare things that I actually spend more than the minimum on are tees. I use the 3-and-1/4 Prolength. Those are the ones with the blue stripe and that helps me tee the ball consistently at the same height. Contrary to their claims of durability, I seem to smash through them at about the same rate as the cheaper ones.

I bought a bag of wooden ones about 5 years ago and have not used half of them.

I like the plastic ones I find all over the place.  Seem to get 2 or 3 every time I play golf.  It appears a lot of people don't want to bend over and pull them out of the ground.. too much work?  I think these are the same people who don't repair any ball marks on greens.

There is always a broken tee on the par 3 to use. Sometimes right where I want to hit from and at the right height.

It doesn't matter, just buy a cheap bag of tees and be done with it, don't fall for all the fancy tops with notches and brushes, they're just gimmicks.

I prefer wood, no real reason, just like it better than plastic.

    • My last 10 rounds still have me off to a good start for my 2019/2020 season.  In order as played. 80, 79, 83, 81, 89, 85, 85, 81, 78, and 84.  I hav'nt looked up my revised hndcp, after turning these cards in,but I don't think it changed much. I had three 6s during this run. Two during the round of 89, and one during a round 85. The round of 89 was a struggle in really bad weather.. No excuses though, as I own it the same as the 78/79 rounds.  My 7 wood, and putter continue to be my best scoring clubs.1 Averaged 31. 3 putts per round, which of course is false stat such as my game is. Used 4 different courses in the southwest area.  In between rounds there were practices and Christmas shopping.
    • I have not personally used those Accra iron shafts before but I would say that you have in fact already bought them, then I would give them some time before you make any decisions about alterations. At least 5-10 range sessions and a few rounds with them. If you haven't bought them, I would say that 123g graphite shafts are really heavy and probably not best suited for someone with your speed. They may help with the joints but they aren't going to offer anything to help with speed or distance. I would be looking in the sub 90g range. If you do own them, you would need to change the shafts more than just change swing weights from removing possible tip weights.
    • 2019 Goals Decide on a new home course since moving Play 40 18 hole rounds with at least 15 eligible for handicap entry Work on solid contact with the ball for additional distance Lower my 16.3 handicap index by a stroke   I did join a nearby semi-private club in 2019.  I played about 30 rounds but had 20 eligible for handicap.  I did make decent contact but did not gain much in the way of distance.  And my handicap went down a half point for a while but I ended up at 16.5 .
    • My wife and daughters take 10 minutes just to get out of the car when we get home! I keep my clubs and shoes in my locker at the course, but once I get to the locker it doesn't take me long to get everything out and situated. That being said I normally get to the golf course with plenty of time to spare so I don't have to rush. I've worked there for 15+ years, I know everyone, and I like to go in and chat, maybe get a cup of coffee, eat breakfast. Talk to the old guys that are always sitting at the "table of wisdom" in the restaurant. I believe in being early and not rushing. 
    • I have used something like this and it worked for me. I like that I can adjust the tightness/pressure and pinpoint the location. I tried elbow sleeves before but it was either not compressive enough or it restricted my movement.
