I am at Legend level, and have hit a wall as far as scoring goes. During matches I hear members talking about my math was off or dropped my calculator. I s there a way to calculate your shot with math? I've asked but all I get is silence. Need your help.. Thank You Ramjet007
It's a pain in the a$$ and that's why lots of people use calculators such as Kats (https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B8zXgJL4jcQeaEI1NHBRc2N4c1E&usp=sharing
) or Sgt. Bilko. If you're doing it in your head I'd suggest using Sine and Cosine.
15 degrees = .259, 30d = .505, 45d = .707, 60d = .866, and 75d = .986. So 2, 5, 7, 8, and 9 are close enough. 10 Mph wind blowing towards 1:30pm on a clock would be 45 degree angle. 10*.7 = 7mph of adjusted tail wind and Side wind. If it was 1:00pm that would be 30 degrees. So 10*.5 for side wind = 5y. and 10*.866 for tail wind of about 8.5y.
For every 10mph of head wind per 100y its around 5.8 or 6 yards of added wind. For every 10mph of tail wind per 100y its around 3.9 or 4y of subtracted wind. So after you get the adjusted distance from the previous paragraph you have to to even more math to adjust it to the correct distance.
For Tail wind @ 50y*.2, 75y*.3, 100y *.4, 125y *.5, 150y*.6, 175y*.7, 200y+*.8.
For Head W @ 50y*.3, 75y*.45, 100y*.6, 125y*.75, 150y*.90, 175y*1.05, 200y+*1.2
