For woods and my driving irons I tee up about a centimeter off the ground. For my irons about a half centimeter. For my wedges if it's a nice teebox I'll hit it off the ground, but if it's a little rough or uneven I'll tee it up about a half centimeter too. The reason I don't tee up wedges is because they're the only clubs I might hit high off the face. It's very rare for me that I hit an iron or wood high on the face.

You get 18 chances for a perfect lie in a round of golf. Use a tee.

... Nicklaus said the same as others here. Why would you not take advantage of a perfect lie? If you like hitting off the turf, just baaaarely tee it up for a similar but perfect lie.

There’s a reason you aren’t allowed to place the ball on a tee from the fairway or anywhere besides your first shot. If you can use a tee, use it!

Always a tee. From the great Jack Nicklaus ...

 

> I always felt that air had less resistance than dirt. What puzzles me is when players take a tee, jam it all the way in the ground and then put the ball on top of it. Why is the tee there? You have the opportunity on a par 3 to tee it up, so why not take advantage of that and give yourself the best lie possible. In the fairway, when the ball sits on the ground, you might hit it thin or fat. But if you tee the ball a little higher on a par 3, you can make more of a sweeping swing, and you've just eliminated the two things you don't want to happen.

Always a tee. But rarely feed up beyond the turf. I just give my self a perfect lie on the ground. As in the ball is likely to be on the tee and yet still touching grass slightly. Higher than that and you can’t control spin with a wedge , and it runs risk of hitting high on the face. Although I did tee a hybrid up 4 inches or so once to launch it over a stand of trees on a par 4 dogleg. Works great for hitting a 250 yard moonball. But I wouldn’t do it for control.

Yes, just like there is a difference in spin numbers off a mat and off of real turf.

 

In theory as long as you can still make clean contact, a ball on the real turf will have slightly more friction, therefor staying on the face of the club slightly longer and imparting more spin. So in theory as it relates to spin: grass>mat>tee. This is why you see Pros push the tee almost all the way into the ground on par 3's. They can manipulate it so that they get a "perfect" lie, but without losing spin from teeing it too high.

> It varies. Usually it's just a whack of the ground with the club to create a little bump to put the ball on for most clubs... If I use a tee, it is for a longer iron... 3 or 4 iron.

 

This is me also. Whack the ground a bit and create a sight rise in the ground. I do that with all irons and even my 5 wood.

Only a tee for the driver and 3 wood.

I follow Jack's advice as well and use a tee every time. Like others have mentioned, I use broken ones picked up off the ground for anything besides driver.

I'm guilty of popping up a small mound of turf with an iron. I know better but always seem to put a different swing on it when it's teed up... even a little. It's mental.

99.9% of the time I use a tee. The exceptions are on a few holes I play that require slightly different flights. A particular short par three plays into the wind most times. I will forego the tee to get a lower, punchier, spinnier shot with a lofted iron. But that is ONLY if the tee box isn't all chopped up or uneven. On one other shorter par 4 that doglegs right and doesn't require driver, I will hit a 3 wd off the deck to get, again, a low cut shot that will roll out rather than carry.

I’m in the minority: with 9 thru Wedges I just find the best grass I can and go directly off turf. My swings are pretty steep so I find I’m more consistent without the tee on short irons. With 7&8 I’ll do a very short tee, almost like the ball is still on turf anyway. 4-6 irons it’s slightly higher, maybe 1/4” above turf.
