As a long time PGA Professional walking through the golf products jungle known as the PGA Merchandise Show for the 25th year in a row, it was unlikely anything was going to really catch my eye other than a long lost friend or some super fancy golf Queen.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw a small colorful Banner that read G2 Flex-Head Performance Golf Tees “Guaranteed Unbreakable for Life”. As a very busy PGA Teaching Professional, teeing up most all of my students shots because of questionable sandy turf, and having to deal with the long standing chronic results of broken golf tees everywhere, I had to check it out.
The helpful young mid-western girl working the small booth simply offered me two tees, a short yellow tee, and a longer blue one. I asked, “Are they truly unbreakable?” She said, “Guaranteed, or my uncle the inventor will replace the one you send back to him. He should return shortly.”
It was towards the end of the show and I needed to beat Orlando traffic, so I grabbed a business card from the table and went on my way. It was funny though, I kept reaching in my pocket, having to check out the tees again and again. Call me goofy, but they really got my attention because they were cool looking, and potentially valuable, especially if they were unbreakable.
Putting the Flex-Head tees to the test
As a professional educator, OK, golf instructor, I had to know more. I went on line to www.flex-head.com and knew this was no ordinary golf tee. I had to get to the practice tee. As you can imagine, I did my best to put the tees to the test and destroy both them.
Hey, I might be a Senior Professional, but I still have a rip it attitude and a 108 mph driver swing speed that can smash through an impact zone and whatever happens to be there. Could I break the tees? No chance, unless the leading edge of my 5 iron was customized by Gillette Razors.
Using the tees with my students was great research. The “little yellow tee” the G2-50, affectionately known as “Goldie”, absorbed, after doing some math (number of lessons x average numbers of swings), around 14000 hits.
I had already ordered on line a “G2 Players Pack” with the six varying tee heights but knew it was time to call the inventor to thank and encourage him for making my golf experiences better, less expensive and more fun. I would actually catch myself laughing while students abused “Goldie” with violent hacks and chops only to quickly re-tee for another attempt at improvement. The durability alone sold me.
Contacting inventor Mark Gruenwald
It took no time to realize the inventor of these golf tees was brilliant. I just had to call him. It was a pleasure talking with Mark as I thanked him for providing me with such a great every day golf product and teaching tool.
It was amazing the level of intelligence that went into making the original G2 Flex-Head Tees and Mark’s willingness to tell how and why he did it. The feedback from thousands of users, the results of our collective evaluations and considerations to the improvement of the G2 Tees has helped Mark produce the next generation G3 Series Performance Golf Tees…the best tees in the history of golf.
Benefits for your golf game
Centeredness of Contact
The new G3’s now have eight specific tee heights with shoulders giving you consistent tee heights for your tee shots.
This provides a greater likelihood for hitting the golf ball on the sweet spot because of easily knowing how high to tee it up every time, resulting in more shots striking the center of the club. That means more distance, and consistent ball flight.
Ultra-Wide Ball Seat
50% wider than conventional tees for easy ball placement. The tri-pod designed ball seat makes putting the ball on the tee as easy as possible. No more struggling to place, and keep the ball on the tee.
The stem foundation of the tees are designed with “Stay in Ground Technology’ to keep the tees from flying out of control on impact.
Guaranteed Unbreakable for Life
Seriously, Mark uses a special polymer that is virtually unbreakable, and stands by the toughness of the Flex-Heads with a money back guarantee.
Send the broken tee to Flex-Head Performance Golf Tees, N4479 Low Road, Reesville, Wisconsin 53579 and Mark will replace the tee, and most likely throw in an extra one or two.
Brilliant Optic Colors
To overcome the potential depression caused by losing or leaving your tee on the teeing ground, the Flex-Head tees come in easy to find, super bright, Optic Colors.
They also match beautifully with colored golf balls for the fashion conscious golfer.
How to Order
Serious tee studies have shown the only significant benefit from any tees in the marketplace is the ability to tee the ball at the same height consistently for repeatable center-on contact. Flex-Head Tees were designed with that benefit a top priority. The other features are a nice bonus.
