Last week, playing some some cold (really cold) strong wind, I lowered by typical tee height a bit in attempt to lower my ball flight. It seemed to work, but maybe I just got lucky? I most commonly buy/use 2-3/4" tees. I really don't pay close attention to my tee height but would guess it to be around 2 to 2-1/4". Based on my ball marks, that seems to keep me in the centroid pretty well with slightly high and toe drift. I see folks teeing balls barely an inch off the deck and some using "Texas Tee's that look more like a t-ball game. I've read some articles/threads about "teeing it forward" but not so much about determining optimum tee height - or when one might want to tee higher or lower than normal to effect ball flight. So what's your strategy and preference for tee height - and how did you come to this conclusion? Do you pay close attention to this or just stab it in the turf, place the ball, and smash it? Anyone know how the top caliber players and pros establish this - please don't tell me I should get a tee fitting .
