Finding the right tee to use can be a difficult thing to do so here’s a little comparison on some tees that I have come across. As some of you may know you really can’t hit your driver off of the ground very well. That’s why you need a golf tee in your pocket or golf bag which will help to elevate the golf ball off the ground to get a better shot and loft that you are looking for with your driver. There are tons of different golf tees on the market and I would like to offer out some advice for you on how golf tees work and what the benefits of wood or plastic tees.
Plastic Golf Tee
Now with the plastic golf tee, you’re going to get a tee that will last for many shots off the tee. Plastic golf tees will be able to withstand the brutal shots on them and keep coming back for more. However, I have used them and found that they can make your golf shot less crisp if you hit the tee instead of the ball. A wooden golf tee would help with that issue by breaking into a couple of pieces. The nice thing about a plastic tee is they last a long time.
One disadvantage to the plastic tee is to the environment. Now I’m not a big pusher on this issue but it one of the things I agree with when I’m golfing. I tend to try and take the time to clean up the tee box area as it only takes a few minutes and that’s how I would like it when I walk up to the tee. With plastic tees, they will never go away in my lifetime and that’s one of the reasons I don’t use them anymore.
I did like using them and I mainly used them when I was first starting out golfing as I thought it was a waste of time and money breaking those wooden tees all the time. As I got better with my tee shots and using them with woods and wedges off the tee I found plastic tees sometimes just got in the way or hindered my swing. If you are starting out golfing I would recommend plastic tees just because you can buy a five-pack of tees and make it through a round or two having not to worry about using every last tee you purchased.
As for me I really would rather golf with a wooden tee. Plastic tees do come in some really cool sizes and shapes and color options for sure. You can find that golf tees come in many sizes and you might have to try out the longest tees first just to find out if you need the ball to be higher or lower with your shots. Once you have tried them for a few rounds you might be able to get shorter tees and if not just push them farther into the ground.
Wood Golf Tee
Now as you just read the wood golf tee also comes in many different sizes for you to pick from. With the height concern sometimes it’s best to just get the longer tee and worry about having enough height once you are more experienced golfing. The nice part that I have found about the golf tee being wooden is that they seem to break away and not hinder my golf shots off the tee.
Another great thing about wooden tees is they will eventually disappear into the ground over time. As with plastic tees though I still like to pick them up and keep the course as clean as possible for the next group that comes through. Now using wooden golf tees once you are a little more practiced in your golf game can mean going through a minimum of 18 tees one per hole. The nice thing is wooden golf tees are pretty inexpensive and you can buy them in big enough bags to help last a couple of golf rounds.
Just like some golf ball companies you can even customize your golf tee. You can put your business logo on them and hand them out with those custom golf balls that you had made for the same benefit. Now some people may think why when they just break or you lose them anyway. It’s still one of the fun things you get to do as a golfer to add some laughs with your friends out on the golf course.
Ok so really which one is better or worse as far as they tee is concerned. Neither is the best it’s a personal decision on which tee you pick. I wanted to give you guys just some words of experience on what I have found with golf tees and the best size and uses. But again going out onto the golf course and trying to find out which is the best size for you is what I would recommend for you.
You, in the end, have to choose which one works better for you as a golfer so go over to the Worldwide Golf Shops link that is on this page and check out your options. Good luck in your golf round starting with a great golf ball and tee is just the beginning. With a good ball and tee, you have a start next look into some beginner golf clubs and your all set.
