Elevation Changes: A simple calculation

How do you calculate elevation changes? If you don’t already have a device that calculates that for you, we have a simple way to get roughly the correct distance.

We’ll walk-through not just how to calculate the distance to an uphill & downhill pin but also how the ball is going to react. We’re not scientists and this is not exact but it gives us a quick reference to a yardage that’s going to be close to the real thing. There’s a little bit more than just the distance to take into account but we can still get in all into one 60 second video.

Don’t let elevation changes mess with your game. Make this simple calculation and club selection should be much easier next time you’re out playing.

    Fine .Quite right. That’s exactly the rule of thumb I currently utilize .
    Please show us how you play a ball lying on pine needles .and one from a fairway bunker ,high lip and low lip .
