The New Revolutionary Tomahawx™ Golf Tees

The New Revolutionary Tomahawx™ Golf Tees

Specifically engineered as a uni-body single component design offering the high performance
characteristics today’s golfer demands.

Mark Schneider has taken an innovative approach by questioning whether a tee would offer a sweeter drive shot, when using in very hard ground, if the bottom of the golf tee was a blade and not a point.

Every tee since it’s conception in 1899 uses a point. Hitherto, golf tee solutions to create the perfect tee shot has focused on the head of the tee. Three prongs, four prongs, bristles, rubber and good old fashioned wooden golf tees all have their fans. But Schneider’s focus on developing his golf tee was at the point of breakage.

The result was the Tomahawx™ golf tees use a quarter-round tapered knife-edge which allows typical vertical insertion but allows the tee to rotate forward horizontally resistance-free at impact.

Mark Schneider explains how the tee works:

“The front face is flat creating a natural point of pivot for the bottom to rotate thru. The tapered knife-edge creates it’s own unique cavity in the ground. Tomahawx™ are very easily inserted vertically just like an ordinary standard tee. But rotate forward horizontally resistance-free.”

Tomahawx™ Golf Tees are currently available in the USA and from www.tomahawx.com.

    These look really futuristic – what is the main advantage of these tees ? Also would they be allowed in competition – do they provide competitive advantage to those using them ?

    Hello, I’m the actual inventor of Tomahawx™
    Most of the advantages and the way they work can be found by further reading at http://www.tomahawx.com.

    The retail version with the flanged bottom optimizes
    the placement of the tee. It has been reviewed by USGA and found to be “conforming to the rules of golf.” Meaning it is allowed for tournaments and such.

    But if I had to put it in a sentence or two. The real benefit is similar to other “performance” tees which allow the driver to swing thru it’s plane without resistance as from a conventional tee. The point of impact when the ball is at maximum compression and requires maximum release if its energy is the same point where standard tees give resistance. Usually breaking but none the less being an obstacle to a smooth swing-thru. Tomahawx™ inserts vertically but rotate forward with great ease by design. It’s simple geometry!

    I’ll try to keep an eye on this page for more questions or comments. But feel free to contact me directly thru my site’s contact page for more info.

    Best Regards!
    Mark Schneider

    I must confess I was sceptical about a need for these but then I play in a climate where it’s very very rare for the ground to be so hard to not be able to get a tee into the ground.
    It’s impressive, however, that the inventor is so approachable to answer questions I sincerely hope the venture is successful.

    I actually got my first pack today and they do hold the ground very well, there is next to no movement at all.

    I think this pack will last me quite some time but I will definately be buying more!

    Does this tee conform with the rule ‘must not be designed or manufactured in such a way that it could indicate the line of play.’
    It seems the design has a flat edge, in effect indicating a direction
