I came upon this unique golf product recently called, Tee Tac, which allows you to set a consistent ball height EVERY time.
WHY DO WE NEED IT
I guess the first question that might come to mind is “Why do we care about setting our golf ball height anyway?”
Of course, the answer is consistency but what does that actually mean. Say, for example, you normally hit your driver 220 yards on the fly. If you hit it just half an inch (or 1.27 centimeters) off center (toward the toe or heel) you lose roughly 10 yards, three quarters of an inch (1.905 centimeters) you lose 15 yards; and so forth.
So maybe you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on a new driver in hopes of getting an extra 5-10 yards.
What folks don’t understand is you can easily get that distance (and often much more) just by hitting it closer to the sweet spot more often. One way is to keep a consistent ball height so you have the best chance of accomplishing that.
We have all heard that “golf is a game of inches” and this product really gives it new meaning. I often think to myself how really good Tour players are and how precise they are with their shotmaking. One reason is that they use this precision to their advantage.
You may not think tee height is a big deal but why not use it to your advantage. When you’re playing and in the heat of the battle the last thing you want your mind to be occupied with is how high you want your golf ball off the ground.
That’s why I like the Tee Tac. It provides “built-in” precision for you.
HOW TO USE IT
The Tee Tac is designed with 2 heights (for irons and woods). Those are 35mm and 20mm. Just put the ball on top of the Tee Tac and when you feel the first point of resistance that is the first setting and vice versa. I love that it’s this simple.
Next, simply remove the Tee Tac without disturbing the ball on the tee by tilting the Tee Tac slightly as you remove it from the ground. Wala! Perfect tee-height on every shot.
Keep in mind, it does come with a indestructible aluminum tee but it’s important to note that the Tee Tac can be used with ANY tee.
Also of note is that it’s unique design also allows it to double as a divot repair tool. Pretty cool.
Just a note: the device is a tee height setting mechanism and NOT meant to stay in the ground when you are teeing off. (If you do, you may damage your club and send a projectile to somewhere you may not have wanted it to go!)
DESIGN and PACKAGING
The item itself is beautifully designed and made of ultra durable zinc alloy. It’s not flimsy at all – just feels nice and solid. It also fits comfortably in your pocket for repeated use.
First impressions DO count. When I first saw the packaging I thought, “Wow, I love the graphics, the logo, the round shape of the package.” They obviously put a lot of thought and care into the design and look of this product.
So many times I receive golf products and they are just shoddily done. It’s nice to see Tee Tac took the time to do it right.
This would also be a very cool gift at a charity golf event. Everyone always likes getting cool new golf products — and this way you can actually get a useful one for your tournament.
