Hear Ye, Hear Ye golfers out there!!!!! Evolve Golf confirms recent independent testing conducted at both GolfTest USA and Golf Laboratories showed the company’s patented, Tour-proven Epoch performance tee provides significantly greater total distance and accuracy than competing products.
According to the data acquired from 20 male and female golfers hitting multiple shots with each tee, the
- 11.6 yards longer and 1.6 yards more accurate than the three-post composite tee
- 9.0 yards longer and 4.7 yards more accurate than the traditional wooden tee
- 7.3 yards longer and 2.2 yards more accurate than the offset composite tee
Those results were mirrored by Golf Laboratories, which conducted its tests at a swing speed of 95 mph using a robot and launch monitor in a controlled test environment. Under these conditions, the Epoch was shown to be:
- 1.8 yards longer and 2.0 yards more accurate than the three-post composite tee
- 5.8 yards longer and 2.7 yards more accurate than the traditional wooden tee
- 3.4 yards longer and 3.0 yards more accurate than the offset composite tee
Since 2004, the Epoch has been part of:
- 127 major Tour wins
- 48 PGA Tour victories.
Used weekly by scores of PGA Tour players it is the only performance tee with radius posts that span the width of a golf ball dimple. This unique feature creates the lowest coefficient of friction of any tee, eliminating deflection at impact and increasing ball speed and control.
Like all Evolve Golf products and packaging, the Epoch is environmentally friendly. Made from recycled materials, the design is significantly more durable than its wooden counterparts and not harmful to mower blades.

“The test results go hand-in-hand with the fact that so many of the world’s best players trust the Epoch’s performance advantages to help them win on Tour,” says BJ Maloy, Founder and CEO of Evolve Golf. “When the variability of each golfer’s swing is evaluated, golf tee design flaws become blatantly evident. Whether it’s a test featuring a robot in controlled conditions or average men and women swinging away, our tees are quite literally outpacing the competition.”

“Since switching to the Epoch in 2008 we have seen the consumption of golf tees trend down substantially each season,” says Katie Clark, Merchandising Manager, The Sanctuary Golf Club. “The members have nothing but positive feedback regarding our switch to the Epoch, as our tee boxes are now free of broken wooden tees.”
“Our members love Evolve tees. So much so that we keep a supply on each par three,” says Chip King, Director of Golf at Grandfather Golf and Country Club. “As a result, we have virtually eliminated the mess of broken tees on the course.”
“The fact is that we are very happy with the Epoch,” says Matt Gallagher, PGA Director of Golf, Country Club of Fairfax. “We have cut the number of tees we go through by two-thirds compared to the number of wood tees we purchased last year.”
