Use the smallest tees when you tee off with fairway wood, a hybrid club or iron. Some manufacturers offer even smaller tees at 1 1/2 and 2 1/8 inches specifically for teeing the ball just above the grass. The 3.25-inch and 4-inch tees are ideal for drivers, especially those with large heads.
- For the typical beginner, either the 5,000 or 5,500-yard tees are best. Not only will the holes be shorter, the tees will usually be placed where there’s little or no trouble directly between you and the fairway or green. If you hit a poor tee shot, odds are it will come to rest in a playable spot rather than a water hazard, bunker or deep rough.

Do golf tees affect distance?
The height of your tee will help a golfer avoid the gear effect. This phenomenon happens when you tee the ball too low which increases the backspin on the ball. More backspin often results in less distance. However, teeing up your ball too high could lead to more air under the ball and less distance.

Does tee height matter?
