Golf Tips

Use the Tee Height to Control Your Misses

By Charles Frost

Head Teaching Professional
Quail Hollow Club

You can adjust how high you tee the ball to help control your misses. Please view the photo demonstration below.

The middle ball is the height that I normally tee the ball up. If I am playing a hole that has trouble on the left side of the hole then I tee the ball lower than my normal tee height. This helps to hit the ball low on the club face which will keep the ball from going to the left.

When facing trouble on the right side of a hole, I raise the tee height higher than the normal tee height. With the ball higher I am more likely to hit the ball higher on the club face which will encourage the ball to curve to the left and stay away from the trouble. By varying your tee height you can help direct your misses away from severe trouble.
