MC, you can just drop in at Isetan at Scott and go to their Golf Section. Think belong to Transview if I am not wrong. You can buy all you want. Just bought it. One are made of wood which breaks quite easily but the colored ones are made of synthetic plastic which is biodegradable. This one last longer. The Birchwood are in packs of 75s and the colored in packs of 50s. Both selling at $12 per pack. Have bought both and tried. Just for your info.

I seen only the 2 3/4 and the 3 1/4 ". The 2 3/4 " is perfect for the driver , in my opinion.

JL, you can used those broken ones from your games and used it for irons or woods tee off. If not, just broken your good ones to the height you prefer. Solves the problem Idea

I think, that if one wants to get distance, then the zero friction tees will play a key role

But if one wants to lay-up on a certain hole, then maybe the tradisional one will suffice....

Ya MC out quite sometime already. At least 6 months ago. I bought them then. Not much difference compare to Guam. Yours work out to be around S$10.80 with no shipping. Here cost $12. So its quite insignificant in prices comparison.

Same thing happened to me. I'm using the same tees from Golf Greedy as well as the ones with the disc that let you set the height of the tee.
Gotta be as vertical as possible when you plant the tee, if not its an extremely frustrating time just getting the ball to sit on the tee.

When I see these huge pack of tees, 50 for $12, I remember when they had K-Mart in Lucky Plaza and it was closing down, they had 100 in a pack selling for just 80 cents. What a Face

I grabbed quite a few bags cos I always broke my tees with every drive, lasted me years. They must have been K-ro frictions. ROFL

Bro, grease very messy, use KY, then truly biodegradable like the tees ma... ROFL

Some more got dual purpose in case your caddy is a XMM.

She ask you what you applying to your tees, then you just show her demonstration alpha lor. Face Hug
