Hi all, Just wondering what are the best tees to use? I'm about to buy that new Titleist 909 D2 and want to protect it as much as I can. I've always bought those plastic step tees, but of late they seem to just shatter on every tee shot. I asked the Adam Scott website what he uses and who ever got back to me said he uses tees supplied by Titleist, which I have never seen for sale. Any help would be great

I'm sure if you pile enough cotton wool onto itself it will eventually work. I would recommend you don't take the plastic wrap off the driver either to make sure those nasty grass stains don't get on the club.

Inevitability using the driver will cause damage! Wooden / plastic tee's don't really create too much damage apart from maybe leaving small streaks on the bottom of the driver. You could use those brush tee's, but everyone knows they're a gimmick. There will be days where you'll plant your driver into the ground, no matter how good you are, you'll do more damage then than any tee will.

forgot to add, if you're shattering tee's with your driver, you're probably hitting the tee before the ball.

Not to mention when you need to hit your driver off the deck on some of those long par 5's.

believing you can play is just as important as being able to play

Done that if I wanna re-sell my stick in quick time :) btw no distance or accuracy lost, just slightly muted sound.

I recommend wrapping your ball and tee in bubble wrap and electricians tape.

my suggestion would be to wall mount the club at home in the lounge room and just throw your ball around the course. This would avoid both damage to the driver and shattering tees :)

You could ask a friend to hold your ball while you tee off. Just make sure they cover their fingernails with Band-Aids first, fingernails can make a mess of your clubface (And your balls).

I hear Earl Grey tea bags stacked up are the goods. Removes the string and staples though to be sure.

Funny thread...but seriously if i find that the tee off area is well compacted, i wiggle the tee around a little bit (not too loose that it falls over) . This helps to reduce the resistance of the tee against the clubface. I use long wooden tees which i wrap some coloured electrical tape around. This prolongs the life of the tee, but more importantly is easy to spot on the tee off area. good luck
