Every hole starts on the tee box. Whether you like to tee the ball up high and let the ball fly or if you prefer to tee the ball low and let it run, there are certain tees and certain lengths that will maximize ball flight off the tee.
Shorter tees are for par 3’s or hitting a wood (not your driver) of the tee were you need to get the ball up in the air. It mimics the ball being on the ground in the fairway but giving you a little better lie by placing a shorter tee into the ground. The shorter tee places the ball just above the grass allowing for a nice, clean shot.
Some players like to tee their ball up high for shots with a driver. This sends the ball high into the air but at the same time to takes distance away but for some, that’s how they like to tee their ball up. Ideally, you want tee the ball up so it lines up with squarely in the middle of the driver face. This allows for a clean swing and solid contact with the club and ball. This also allows for the loft of the driver to take action.
Tees have different tops. Wooden golf tees are generally round on top for even place for the ball to sit. Plastic tees with 3 prongs like the Zero Friction Performance Tees. Champ makes Fly Tees that have a shallower cup and 6 separated prongs. There are tees that have very wide tops like the Martini Tees. There are rubber tees that are virtually non-breakable. There are tees with alignment marks on them, tees that get fatter at the bottom for consistent length like Orlimar Royal Tees.
