    Anti-slice tees

    Someone on our course today was using these odd looking tees with a plastic extension which wraps around the back of the ball. You are expected to hit the ball through the plastic and this will stop the slice, or so it is suggested.
    Has anyone any knowledge of this device? Is it legal?
    The plastic breaks off easily which is why I was able to see one.

    Re: Anti-slice tees

    I had to laugh at the title of this post, alone.

    TWm, to answer your question, no they do not conform!

    Here's the definition of a "Tee" from the rules;-

    A "tee" is a device designed to raise the ball off the ground. It must not be longer than 4 inches (101.6 mm) and it must not be designed or manufactured in such a way that it could indicate the line of play or influence the movement of the ball.

    Result is disqualification for use of a non-conforming tee. Rule 11-1

    Should be "Result is an eternity of piss-taking by your golf partners"

    Anti-slice tees, next they'll be trying to sell you a putter that sticks into your belly! Oh................

    You're right, Steve. Disqualification is the easy way out, though.

    does that not make brush tee's ilegal? they affect the flight of the ball by giving less friction(the opposite of the above mentioned tee's)to give more length. I should put allegedly give more distance.

    Geronimo, I think the point of the brush tees is that they're NOT meant to influence the flight of the ball!
