Last year one of the vendors was flex head performance golf tees. Are they legal? They have a point on the collar so you point the tee in the correct direction to flex. But could that be called an aiming device. If so, if I file it round will it be ok?June 17, 2017 at 1:53 pm #38627Bob NewmanParticipant
see appendix IV of the rule book, 4 items listed about tees. I’ve been working tournaments for 10 years and I have never heard the question come up about tees. But if in your mind you are using it as an aiming device, I would rule against you BUT what are the chances of it coming up. It all depends on what your intent was for the tee. JMO. While looking at that, also look at “GLOVE”– is the glove with raised ribs to help with swollen fingers legal (how many people will have something to measure 0.635 mm with them to measure). I looked at several of the tees being sold last year and never saw a sign that said it was approved by USGA or not. IF the “intent” is to gain an advantage, it is probably against the rules, but I seriously doubt it will come up.June 20, 2017 at 1:00 am #38642Aaron EllisParticipant
Hahaha, I guess I didn’t pay attention to the fact that one of the teeth sticking out was for aiming, I bought one the last day and tried it after the tournament and didn’t seem to have any luck with it, lost the thing and was like o well, guess I should of paid better attention, maybe that’s why the ball didn’t want to fly off it properly!
