How to Tee Up a Golf Ball

How to Tee Up a Golf Ball

The Proper Way to Put a Golf Tee in the Ground

How often do you see a kid do this. Trying to put a tee in the ground, fumbling all over the place, try to get the ball on the tee and it is all over here and all over there. I tell you what, I see that every day, but what you need to understand is that you do not assume anything with a child when you are teaching them. Even something as simple as putting a tee in the ground. They need to be taught. You need to teach them.

  • What I am going to do is stand in front of them, I am going to show them to put a tee between their fingers.
  • I will show them how to put a ball in the palm of their hand and make a fist.
  • The next thing I will have them do is bend over, turn the hand over, try to find a soft spot in the ground and let the ball push the tee into the ground. That is going to help them out.

Teach your children. Do not assume anything, even something as simple as putting a ball on the tee. Help them out. Help them become better golfers.
