We all know that each ‘Mile Per Hour Increase In Driver Clubhead Speed’ (Impacting The Center Of Mass - Center Of Face) rewards us with about 2.5 yards of Air Time Distance. Forget all the ‘Ambient Temperature, the Sea Level Pressure Gradient and Relative Humidity “STUFF”. That minutia does not matter to the throngs of nice people who golf and yearn for a little more distance off the tee! Thus, a 4 MPH increase times 2.5 generally produces an extra 10 yards. Not a bad goal for each one of us? There is more than one way to accomplish this physical feat!

“PLAY IT FORWARD!”
By only the above first paragraph math, if the “Tournament Tees” are three decks or boxes farther from the flagstick than are the Forward Blocks, you are 30 yards closer or shorter.
