And this is why golf tees are made of plastic or wood, not glass

Glass bottle golf tee

Maybe you've thought about it when you're waiting on the tee box for the fairway or par-3 green in front of you to clear. Why are golf tees made of wood? Who decided fashioning them out of plastic was a good idea? Well, wooden tees were really the evolution of piling up mounds of dirt, just an extra part of the process in chopping up a tree to made wood products. They are bio-degradable, but they break easily, so someone thought plastic would make more sense. Then again, plastic bends. 

But there's one thing we know for sure: making golf tees out of glass -- and especially glass bottles -- is a terrible idea. And we have this video to prove it.
