Using golf tees?

As for your question, every assistant in the world has different ways of marking, especially outside, it comes down to preference. For good hard marks, sandbag Ts or colored metal Ts work best for me. But I have used golf ts before often just as a quick 'soft' mark or if the DP is looking at shots for later in the day and wants a reminder of camera positions. Often too, if I find out the marks have to be pulled as they are visible in shot, golf ts are small enough to be hidden in the grass so the camera won't see them. On the flip side they are so small that often people can't see them too, so they have limitations.

You can use anything to mark.. a golf tee (tho barely visible and highly NOT recommended)... a small flag... a sand bad.. a human... a crack in the concrete.. a wedge... a stain... whatever.
Are you the focus puller?
...I (might) use golf tees for Table Top shots and that is about it.

I use golf T's to tack in the metal or sandbag Ts if the actor's bump them around. The metal framing T's are the best thing to use to mark actors. About $3.50 at home depot. Just wrap them with camera tape in different colors.
I use rubber matting instead of steel.
