What is the highest tree the ball in the previous problem could clear on its way to the longest possible holc-in-one?

Reference (previous) Problem:

. •• A golfer gives a ball a maximum initial speed of 34.4 m/s.

(a) What is the longest possible hole-in-one for this golfer? Neglect any distance the ball might mil on the green and assume that the tee and the green are at the same level, (b) What is the minimum speed of the ball during this hole-in-one shot?
