    The best formula is to play in practice mode. Then play/putt on the green in those awkward but likely to land places then take notes of elevation and distances required on that particular green.

    For example, I have done this on RSG 3rd pin par  3. Here, it is likely a lot of people come up short   - including myself -   quite often the ball rolls back down the green leaving an uphill putt with differing  elevations ranging from 3 feet to 2 feet to 22 inches etc.etc.

    So in tournament  mode I say distance x 0.75 then add the necessary yardage from my notes I had made for that particular elevation whether it be 22 inches or 3 feet. I now play the uphill putts to perfection on that green .......works every time!

    REMEMBER TAKE NOTES! .....THE PROFESSIONALS DO SO WHY NOT YOU?

    No need to ask yourself. He would do what he always does.

    The longer a putt is, or the more uphill or downhill a putt is the bigger the factor I use.

    My WGT lifetime stats show I average 1.62 putts per hole.

    On tournament speed greens and having say a 50 foot down hill putt that has the hole 36 inches below where the putt will start, I would subtract 36 from 50 = 14 feet, then apply a factor of 1.8 or 1.9 to get a putt strength of 7.8 feet or 7.4 feet.

    Does anyone know what the "11" and "12" after Tournament means in the green speed indicator ???

    I`m pretty sure it`s the stimpmeter reading

    Or a Stimpmeter like value that allows conveying more than 1 green speed per green speed rank.

    Where before we had just - Standard, Fast, Very Fast, Tournament - speed greens, now each rank - Standard, Fast, Very Fast, Tournament -  can be given more levels.

    believe u might be just a wee bit short on your putt, I fig, a 9ft putt would be more like it

    So far (in my limited experience) this looks like another random variable. It's a little all over the place, but certainly makes it more interesting. One way to keep the scores a little higher, I guess?
