Martini Tees - Driver Face Contact?

I heard Kenny got 3 more yards one time. 🏌️‍♂️

When the distance of my drives vary by up to 20 yards from drive to drive, those 3 yards are not a factor.  🤣

I don't see how it's physically possible to hit the (martini) tee before the ball either, without a total mishit.

And I don't believe the martini tee adds 10-15 yards and tighter dispersion. Anyone done an independent study?

So I tested those yesterday, it was mixed round, mostly, because I am was trying to figure out how to best use the tees.

since I came back from back surgery I have been averaging 211 out of the tee with the driver, earlier in the year it was about 190, so already a good improvement.

My longest drive was 277 yards, but it did bounce out of the cart path twice, I should have only been 220 maybe.

The second longest was 267, slice it pretty good, but hell, it got way out there, it was the "purest" and longest drive without interference, I have hit in a long time.

I also had a 261, that landed in the fringe of the green on the 8th hole, I think I must have hit a sprinkler head, because my ball went down in the fairway and then bounced up towards the green, and yeah I 3 putted from the fringe.

I averaged 199 with the Driver off the tee, I had some pretty bad drives where I topped it and didn't get any distance from the tee.

I am going to keep using those tees for the meantime to get a better picture of how they are affecting my game.

I don't have a problem with them and I do like their durability. I had my youngest son use them when he began PGA Junior League because of consistent tee-height and near impossible to loose, forget to pickup from tee box.

Are they an longer, probably not, at least for me. However, consistent tee height is one benefit and I think that is a key with many that struggle off the tee. I kinda use the analogy of ball position. Many times when our ball striking is off, its as simple as ball position that needs checking/adjusting. Same for inconsistent tee shots, maybe the tee-height needs to be more consistent from each tee. Definitely lean it forward as their web site suggest, I do agree there is difference if one doesn't.

Friends of mine, including SWMBO love them. I think it’s the durability that draws them to it. I know I “hit” the edge of the martini tee a couple times and maybe lost couple yards but no big deal. Everyone should try them at least and make up their own minds. A lot of people swear by them.

The course where we play has firm tee boxes when it is dry resulting in breaking your tees on almost every drive.   A couple of years ago one of my regular foursome started playing with the Martini tees and we all teased him about it.  Fast forward now and we are all playing them.  They are very hard to break.  The shorter ones tend to fly out of the ground and are much easier to lose. The longer ones are also easier to get a hold of for some of the older guys.   The stepped ones break more easily then the non stepped, but provide for more consistent tee height.  When it is really firm ground, they can be tough to insert because they are thicker and a bit flexible.  

Generally the way we use them is to insert the tee and then angle it slightly rearward.  The large cup supports the ball and the tea shaft is out of the way of the driver face.

You never have seen a group of guys look for a tee after hitting their drive like us though! 😉

You don’t have to carry many tees once you start using them.  They last a long time and don’t take up much space in the golf bag or pant’s pocket.

I’ve been giving some out to members of our Men’s group to try and now lots of guys have switched over.

A couple of their competitors have introduced their own version recently, haven’t tried any of the copies yet.

If you could compress a ball far enough to hit the tee then all that is going to happen is the tee would move. Secondly, I have know idea how a tee could change the flight path of the ball.

My wife uses rubber top tees which are double the size of a wooden tee. She loves them as the rubber piece is the perfect height for her driver. The cool thing about them is that when the plastic tee breaks you can simply replace them with wooden ones.

I find the martini tees and use them regularly with a slight tilt for my driver. I am routinely getting greater than 50% Fairways. Sometimes 75%. Martinis are great.

In our Wednesday group I’m the only guy out of 8 that doesn’t use the martini tees. The funny part is if I can’t find my tee after a Tee shot no big deal if they can’t find a Martini Tee it’s a meltdown from a couple these guys, it’s comical.
The Tees I’ve been using are from my eye Doc who has really high quality semi-flexible ones. Have an eye exam next month time to stock up[emoji106]

I love by these tees. Wooden and they last as long as plastic without bending. They’re ridiculously strong and I’ll go probabky 2 rounds with 1 as long as I don’t lose it.

the lines help me place it down the same every time.

Easy, Seniors who after every shot is “where’d it go, did you se it”? “I never saw it”[emoji33]. That’s how. We have one guy about 78 or so hasn’t seen a Tee shot in years.
