    You flop it with full b/s.  20/25 +2y.  30/40 +8y.  Balls and clubs will give slight variations in trajectory and roll out so test a bit for  yourself.

    Using a 60 yard wedge I would do the distance plus 10% for the lie plus 25%. Full shot FBS I can normally get to a yard dfrom the pin

    Puttluck:
    Since becoming master, I realised I hadn't mastered all of my game so I've been mostly playing practice rounds and taking notes of all my short play shots

    BEST ADVISE OF ALL,

    STAY OUT OF THE BUNKERS AND AVOID ALL THAT NONSENSE!

    You know I'm kidding, right? LOL

    Have a nice day!

    Perhaps this might make Puttluck's formula a little easier to understand.....

    Scott on this post I shared it with WGT Nation and WGT Golf PC Players on Facebook. I thought it might help the newer players.

    That's fine by me Don. Although my original image has an accreditation to Puttluck on it, so if that could be visible on any postings that would be good.
