    If a player’s average is 85, the black tees shouldn’t even be considered. You should encourage people to Stick to tees that are appropriate to their handicap, and everyone will enjoy the round better, and yes, possibly even still improve!

      Agreed, There is also the issue of time spent when playing more difficult tees. Think about the players behind you. You can still do this when playing the tees that are appropriate for your game. It will get you closer to your own par.

    Another approach: if you are distance limited, play if forward (i.e., move up to a tee with less yardage).

    Great teaching tips, easy to understand if I watch, listen, then go practice the lesson.. sometimes I review a lesson for a refresher. It’s nice to have them in my library. I share these with my daughter and two grandsons. Great for bonding opportunities. Your own 60 seconds reviews are handy also.
