Should the tee come out of the ground?
The ball should be highest off the ground for a driver. The general recommendation is that the bottom of the golf ball on a tee should be level with the top of the driver; for long and mid-irons, push the tee into the ground so that only about a quarter-inch is above ground.
Do pro golfers break their tees?
For professional golfers, breaking a golf tee is only common when hitting irons and wedges. Average players tend to break their tee too often because their angle of attack is too steep or the ground is just very firm.
Why do I break my tee on every drive?
If you tend to break tees when hitting driver, your swing is most likely too steep, and that means you’re leaving yards on the table by failing to ascend through impact. Try a wider stance, with the ball positioned off your left heel, and tilt your spine away from the target.
Should the tee be hit with driver?
From a poll of GOLF’s Top 100 Teachers, the ideal tee height is about 1.5 inches for driver. A good checkpoint is that half the ball “peeks” above the crown after you sole the club at address. For a 3-wood, peg it about half an inch and just a quarter inch with an iron.
What happens if ball too far forward with driver?
With the driver, most golfers play the ball too far forward and stand too far away from it. This might feel powerful, but it sets some bad things in motion. The forward ball position shifts the shoulders open to the target, which leads to an out-to-in swing and usually a slice.
