Consistency in your tee height may lead to consistency in your ball flight.

Consistency in your tee height can lead to consistency in your ball flight.

We quickly run down how to create a consistent tee height without having to pull out a measuring tape. Do you jam your tee in and swing away? I hope not! Consistency in tee height will create consistency in ball flight. Therefore tee height can be just as important as ball position in your stance. As a result it should be treated as such.

There are tools out there to help you with a consistent tee height. But you can easily use what you already have. There are even tees that allow you to set the height. But there is also your toe(s). If you measure your height off your toe, you can ensure your tee height is consistent from tee shot to tee shot.

    I usually use the ball itself to determine tee height for driver. For irons I usually stick the tee into the ground so that only its head is above ground. Whatever works, right?

      Absolutely, whatever works. It’s different for everyone.

      I also use the ball as a guide. Never thought about using my shoe, but I like the idea….

      I use my driver (still a Big Bertha) planted on the tee box and push in the tee until it’s just a little bit lower than the top of the face. this is usually for the 1st several holes until my swing ‘loosens up’ a bit (I don’t play enough each year) and then I tee it 1/4 inch lower for the rest of the round. The last round I played this year my drive chopped high and then dribbled low on 2 consecutive shots before I started to tee lower and getting more of the results I was looking for.

    I use my finger with the lines as a measuring device. Mine is one and a half of my finger between the first line and the second line of the finger, It never changes, unless you are still growing, LOL.

    On public courses the grass length and thickness on tee-boxes can vary a lot. I insert the tee with the ball holding the tee between my first and second fingers. I push down until my fingers feel the grass and then lift up about a quarter inch. The ball ends up at a consistent height and usually ends up with the midpoint of the ball at the top of the driver face.

    I hit too high frequently. Does that have to do with tee height?

    For tee height, I use my index finger. As I put the tee in, when it is even with the first joint of my index finger – perfect for driver. Just above second joint is good for fairway wood.

    Thanks for bringing tips to us trying to get better. I would like to get better before I get old – birthday next month & I will be 79. LOL
    Presently I’m able to reach most par 4 greens off the senior tees if I catch the ball well.
