How high should I tee up the golf ball? Well, with this tip it just depends on which club you’re using. If we have a look at the two different clubs here, one my driver, and then one my fairway wood, you can see that there’s a great deal of difference between the depth of each club face. The driver has a much deeper club face than the 3 wood. But what we’re trying to do when we tee the ball up is be able to hit the ball just from slightly on the upper part of that club face. So, we want to tee the ball up into a position where half the ball is above the top of the golf club. So, if we look at taking a tee, really we want to use the tee peg and get it so that it’s on the second groove down maybe from the top of the club face. That should set the tee in a position where it will allow half the ball to be on the upper part of the club face and the upper part of the ball to be above the club face.

But obviously you can see that that tee height won’t work when we come to use the driver because that will be way too low on that driver face. So again the same principal applies, go for the second line down, the second groove down maybe on that club face but just so that you’re giving yourself a good centimeter to allow for the lower part of the ball to be sat on the upper part of the club face which gives the upper part of the ball sat above the club. If you set the golf ball so that it’s half above the top of the club face you should find that really helps you strike the ball from the upper part of the club face, and you get the ball up into the air, and getting the ball into the air means you’re going to hit it further. So, that’s the correct height to set your tee peg.
