    As far as i know there is no way to calculate the roll out on the green.There are just too many factors to take into consideration. Downslope upslope green speed to name a few, Is the green one of those where the ball rolls forever like 2,5,13. and 14 at St.Andrews. 

    It is just an educated guess

    I agree with the post above. I don't know of any way to calculate roll out with any accuracy or consistency. Best you can do is purchase balls with better spin characteristics so as to minimize the roll out.

    If you don't want to spend a lot of credits, the Callway Chrome Soft (Level 33) is the best choice. A sleeve is only 250 credits, and the balls have 3.5 dots of spin. It's a great ball.

    Roll outs depends on the hole, some roll outs past the hole not able enough to stop even with the highest spin ball. In time you’ll know which holes where you just need to adjust your distance.

    I can't calculate it - but I do record information like that in my notes and refer to it when playing the hole again.

    There are some holes that roll out for ever & some that you fall short on.

    Best to keep notes & on the long rollers & work your landing back to get closer.

    On one par 5 ( at RStG or StA ) rolls so I have to land the ball in fairway to kill

    most of the roll.

    And there are those holes that landing beyond the hole always results in the ball rolling on a couple of yards but landing short will always result in the ball backing up.

    BPB #13 comes to mind here.
