Playing a golf ball is something golf enthusiasts do without thinking. Put the tee into the ground, put the golf ball on top and shoot away. However, if your tee height doesn’t match the type of shot you’re trying to hit, be prepared to lose a lot of golf balls.

Always have a plan in mind before putting a tee into the ground.
