No, you can only use the tee on your tee shot on every hole. Your tee shot is any shot that is hit from the designated tee box, and the teeing are is defined by the two tee markers. If you need to hit a provision shot from the tee box, you may use a tee. But you can not use a tee from anywhere else.

In foursomes it is quite simple, one player hits the tee shot on the odd holes, the other hits the tee shot on the even holes. Imagine two players A and B. On hole 1- A hits tee shot, B hits 2nd shot, A hits 3rd shot, B hits 4th shot etc. On hole 2- B hits tee shot, A hits 2nd shot, B hits 3rd shot, A hits 4th shot. If A hits the tee shot OB, then B hits the provisional tee shot, then A hits what would be the 4th shot.

Second shot from a tee box?

If you just hit a ball out of bounce from the tee box or if you don't know if you did you can call for a provisional ball. You would hit your second shot from the tee box "your provisional shot" and see if you can find the first ball. If you can't and your provisional ball is in play then you have play provisional ball and you accrue a 1 shot penalty stroke also. If you find your first shot off of the tee then you pick up your provisional ball and play your first tee shot. No penalty if you find your first tee shot and you can play it. So, the second shot from the tee box would be considered a provisional shot.
