TEF TEE™ performance golf tees, with their highly distinctive black heads, were a very visible part of the essential equipment used by several top contenders on the Champions Tour™ this past weekend at the Boeing Classic. Tee Direct Inc., makers of the innovative tees with Teflon® Technology, reports that according to their internal verification system, 4 top 10 finishers had the technologically advanced tees in their bags.
While the company acknowledges that the industry's leading equipment surveyor does not monitor the performance tee category, great care is taken in validating pro use by reporting only players who meet the following criteria:
A. the player and/or caddy has verified the tees were used in play
B. the player has been seen on television using the tee (our distinctive design is highly visible)
C. the player has been known to repeatedly use the tees in play
D. the player has been reported as taking tees a minimum of three times in the past six weeks
By virtually eliminating all frictional forces between the tee and the ball, TEF TEE™ golf tees allow the club to transfer energy more efficiently to the ball. This purer release reduces backspin and sidespin, resulting in longer, straighter drives.
Robotic tests at the industry's acclaimed Golf Laboratories, Inc. in Carlsbad, CA proved TEF TEE™ performance tees had 19% less off center dispersion and 6.5 yards more total distance than conventional wood tees.
"Every week, we continue to see more and more players on all tours upgrade their performance equipment by choosing to play TEF TEE™," said Greg MacKeen, inventor of the innovative tees. "They tell us that they like the increased accuracy and easy playability just as much, if not more than the distance increases."
The highly distinctive new white tees with the back head are showing up all over the leader-boards of tour events as more and more touring pros convert from wood tees in record numbers. This renewed interest and credibility for performance tees is helping regenerate excitement and drive growth in the category.
When it comes to reducing friction and increasing driving accuracy and distance, TEF TEE™ is surpassed by no one and recognized as the world leader in tee technology. Only TEF TEE™ delivers Greater Performance three ways:
1. Greater Distance & Accuracy thanks to our patent pending Teflon® technology which results in the lowest friction between the tee and the ball, allowing more efficient transfer of energy from the club to the ball, as the ball releases from the tee surface with less backspin.
2. Greater Playability because the 6 prongs make it easier to balance the ball and the rigid shank inserts easily into even the hardest ground.
3. Greater Value because a single tee often last 5-6 rounds, or 15-20 times as long as wood tees, which also helps keep the courses litter free.
No wonder TEF TEE™ is the Fastest Growing Tee on Tour.
