Most good players line themselves up on the tee, by picking something in front of their ball that is in line with what they are aiming at i.e a mars bar wrapper or a leaf. Many tour pros use this technique and even Tiger Woods.

You may only tee the ball up when you are on the teeing area, hitting a tee shot. This is usually once per hole for each hole.

Also, if you hit a tee shot and can't find the ball you must go back to the tee and you can again tee it up.

Do you have to hit the golf ball off the tee in a real golf game?

No, you do not HAVE to use a tee. On par 3's some players play off the turf if they are hitting short irons. But on longer holes where you have to hit a driver or 3 wood it is highly recommended you use a tee so hit the sweet spot with the proper angle of approach. As Jack Nicklaus once said, you don't often get the chance to tee the ball up, so take it when you do.

How high should you set your golf tee?

Honestly it is personal preference. Although as a general rule when using your driver half of the ball should be above the top of the driver, and the same for your woods. You should tee your long irons up so the ball is roughly in the middle of the club face and for shorter irons and wedges you should tee it up so that the ball is just off the ground so you can stike down on the ball, compress it and get some spin.

What is a tee shot?

A tee shot in its simplest form is the first shot on every hole in a round of golf. It is where a stroke is played from the designated teeing area, as defined by two tee markers. Where the two tee markers are placed a player must tee the ball in between them and they have the option of going up to two club lengths behind them, but never in front of them. A tee does not have to be used.

In golf if you hit OB how far can you move your ball away from the hole?

Out of bounds is the strictest rule in golf, and often the harshest. You have to replay the ball from the exact same place you just played that shot from. So if you are on the tee and hit one out of bounds, you tee it up again and you are now playing your third shot off the tee (This includes the one shot penalty). If you are in the fairway and hit it out of bounds, you replay it from as close as possible to where the original was hit from.

Does the height of the golf tee affect the length of yardage the ball goes?

It depends on your swing and how you play. If you tee the driver and your woods up high you can strike the ball on the upswing, get a lot more airtime and therefore and lot more distance. One well known phrase is 'tee it high and let it fly', however this is not true for irons, as if you sweep irons off the tee you don't compress it as well as you would if you tee'd it down.
