What is the proper tee height for a golf driver?

A few factors come into play when finding a proper tee height for your golf game. First factor is the size and height of your golf driver. With today's large 460cc club heads a longer tee is almost always required.

As a general rule of thumb for standard shots, half of the ball should be above the face of the club head. This will insure upward angle of attack and good control. To increase distance and control, it is recommended to tee the ball down slightly. Hitting a golf drive with the lower half of the face typically insures more control and accuracy.

Conversely, teeing the golf ball high. Some golfers as high as 4 inches!! Will allow you to generate a high launch angle and insure and upward strike is achieved. This is many reasons why long drive professionals use 4 inch golf tees that are barely teed into the grown. I like to equate it to teeing up on from the first floor versus teeing up from the second floor. Having an initial higher starting point is a great way to achieve maximum distance, but can cause more accuracy issues.

Use this guidelines and practice at the driving range to find a proper tee height that fits your golf game and your goals.

Side note: USGA legal maximum allowable tee height is 4 inches.

How to measure your golf driver

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

How to measure your golf driver? Is one of the most common questions I am asked!

Why am I asked this? Most golfers are looking to buy a new golf driver and have no idea what their current length of there golf driver is or they are looking to build their own custom golf driver.

To give you some context, our golf drivers are 45.5 inches.  From our testing, we believe this is the longest golf driver length that you can easily control while offering maximum distance potential. 

The biggest misconception is that you measure the golf driver against a wall or vertical. This is not accurate and will most likely add 1-2 inches to your measurement. Simply hold your golf club at 45 degrees to the ground or as in your playing position. At this point take a golf club ruler or take measure and place under the sole of the club. Measure to butt of grip. This will give you you an accurate and USGA standard for measuring your golf driver. 

So the next time you are looking to measure your golf driver make your sure you follow this basic instructions.

Why we designed a center shafted golf putter? High MOI

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

Why we designed a center shafted golf putter?? Simple really, HIGH MOI.

We are extremely close to releasing our first golf putter. The design process has taken almost a year and has gone through multiple redesigns. Our goal, like all of our products is to engineer our golf products with a specific target (Sink more putts) in mind while using the best possible production process.

So, what does the design do that help get us to our goal.

The Grenade golf putter was engineered to have a high MOI. This higher MOI reduces twisting on off center putts which leads to straighter putts when you need them...But with this, we wanted to insure that we created a HIGH moi putter that still was aesthetically pleasing and instilled confidence. It will be up to you to decide if we have done this..I think we have.

The majority of time engineering was regarding MOI enhancements, but the weight of the putter should be mentioned. Although not a measurable engineering feat, we had decided to use more material to increase overall mass and weight. The goal of offering a heavier putter that would quiet the hands during a putt and help with a natural pendulum swing. The Grenade putter weighs in at a hefty 445 Grams just for the head! Do not be alarmed...it feels good. But you will notice when this thing isn't in your bag!

How we made the putter is what separates it from the off the rack options on today's market. The Grenade is milled out of a single piece (a huge piece) of Carbon steel. We have partnered with a Vermont based precision milling shop that does Aerospace work in order to offer the highest quality CNC milled putter possible.

This CNC milling process is utilized by many high end and boutique companies such as Piretti, Bettinardi, and Scotty Cameron. This process has become popular with the high end golf putter companies because the feel and sound are worthy of the high price tag. These golf putter companies are charging $299-$1000 per putter. Which I can understand, kinda...Because it is very expensive to mill out of one solid piece of anything! Especially those doing it in USA.

The Grenade will be 100% made in USA, which we are proud to announce and will be offering custom lengths as we do with our current golf driver and fairway woods line.

We took the Grenade putter into Dick's Sporting Goods, not to sell it to them but for some unbiased testing. We know your not suppose to bring in golf equipment they don't sell, but we couldn't resist.... (video below)
