Teeing-up Tips

The reason they let you tee up the ball 18 times a round, is because it’s easier to hit a golf shot that way.

When you tee up a ball for an iron or hybrid shot, you’re keeping grass from getting between the club-face and the ball, this gives you more control over distance and direction. Whenever anything gets between the club and the ball at impact –the ball comes off with less backspin, so it doesn’t behave as predictably.

As a general rule, tee up an iron shot so the ball is just above ground level. It should look like the ball is sitting on the top of the short blades of grass on the tee.

For a hybrid club, tee the ball slightly higher, about a half inch above ground level. Hybrids have more weight built into the sole, and you want that weight to get under the ball so you’re taking advantage of the technology. When you get to a fairway wood, set the tee so a quarter of the ball is above the face.

Be sure to make adjustments to these guidelines based on your swing tendencies. A great tip is to put a piece of impact tape on your club-face and hit some shots from a tee. If you hit the ball a bit high or low on the face, adjust your tee height to help you hit it flush.
