Do You Tee Off While the Group Ahead of You Is Putting Out?

Getting ready to turn 68 if I crush a drive it may carry and roll 225 so of course I would tee off any time the group in front is 260+ out - I cannot reach them even with a good forward bounce on the cart path.

The shortest par 4 on the course I play is 240 from the senior tees. since I hit the ball far less than that of course I do.

Doesn't this just change your waiting place from the tee to the fairway? Does it really save any time?

But yes I tee off as soon as the group in front is out of range. It gives me more time to look for my ball (doesn't save a stoke if it take more than 3 minutes, just a couple dollars).

If the group ahead of me is 250 yds and further away, I will hit my drive. It may roll up that far 1 out of 20 shots depending upon fairway conditions (if they're firm). 

However, if it's a short par 4 (i.e. 245 yds.) I will wait because I have driven the green.
