What is the proper tee height for a golf driver club?

If you often drive inconsistently a golf ball, if it is a hook, a slice or too high or low, then it would be down to a basic fact of the tee height. The following sections will give golf players what the proper height that it should be and the impacts that various heights could have on a tee shot.

To begin with, let us talk about technical things: A driver club, like other types of wood club, has a tough surface on the clubface, since it is rounded in both a vertical and horizontal style. The flat curve is regarded as the bulge, while the perpendicular one is regarded as the roll. This shape helps to improve the stability of a golf club and keep it from breaking on impact.

We take the bulge of a club into consideration when a golf ball is struck off the center of a club. For example, when you move and trike a ball with the heel of the golf driver, the flat curve of a club’s face would reduce the quantity of hook on a golf ball. This “Gear Effect” happens even if you strike the golf ball with the toe of a driver club. In other words, the bulge on a clubface is definitely your friend.

On the other hand, the roll is probably not your mate. Basically, it is a vertical curve on a clubface. You have a driver with 10 degrees curve, for example, the loft of this golf club is only 10 degrees on a good spot. If you strike the golf ball only one or two inches too high, then you are striking the golf ball with a loft with 12 degrees or more. This is going to make the ball fly higher into the air. However, it could be still even worse when you strike a ball too low as you would be striking with a 8 degrees loft or less. This type of shot will never get up in the air. Instead of that, it is only going to move along the ground at pace. We often call this the Worm Burner.

From considering those points of view, it could become rather clear that when you are teeing a ball too high, then you are going to strive the golf ball above the good spot and as a result, higher into the air while it is losing the distance. If you tee the ball up too low, you are going to make the grass cut with that shot, which would also rob golf players of a lot of distances.

In addition to those points that we highlighted above, striking the golf ball above a tee height could have a lot of effects on slicing or hooking the golf ball:

If you are going to tee up the ball too low, the path of the stroke would make a sharp angle come in order to strike the golf ball on a good spot. This would lead to an open face of the club, which would then lead to a slice on a golf ball.

It is the precise contrast for a tee that is hit too high. The clubface will come in with an even angle, and in this situation, the clubface would be closed, which would result in a hook on the golf ball in turn.

As you could presumably notice from the discussed points above, a balance should be kept between the 4 various impacts that a tee height has on a golf shot. You need to spend a lot of time practicing on the range of driving with various tee heights so that you could find out which one is the most suitable for golf players. One you have found a winning shot and exact tee height yourself, you could put all your tees on the same height to gain more consistent results with a driver.
