Last year at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, I picked up a sample package of a great new product. Martini Golf Tees! Brightly colored, there were three in the sample pack. I quickly read the attached press release, stuffed them in my golf bag and then forgot all about them. It took until a few months ago for me to rediscover them. And what a find!
Martini Tees are just the thing if you are looking to improve the distance of your drive. Simple to use, you just insert the tee in the ground, but instead of pushing the tee straight down, you give it a slight tilt towards the target. (You can tilt the tee as much as 20 degrees – but don’t get carried away! Tilt it too much and you will drive the ball right into the ground. Trust me! I did it a few times, till I got the hang of it.) The “martini glass” shape of the top of the tee holds the ball in place in spite of the tilt. Then set up and swing!
The promise on the packaging promises longer, straighter drives. And these tees really deliver!!! And they conform with USGA rules.
When I first started playing with these tees, my golf partners couldn’t help but notice them. The bright color alone provoked questions. And when they saw how far I could drive the ball with the new tees, everyone wanted to try one out. I quickly gave away my samples. Wanting more, I went to the internet and found their website. You can buy the tees directly from them, or do a search for a local vendor. Cost is around $1/piece plus shipping and handling. Each tee lasts a very long time so the price is a real bargain.
At our last dinner at the end of the season, everyone in my Tee Club got a couple of Martini Tees as a fun gift. Most everyone who uses them has nothing but good things to say.
