I'm going to leave you alone with that, Kat - slumber time is approaching at 10 pm here.

ApexPC:

When you are 100 yards from the hole -1 mph of wind that is 90° to the line of your shot requires moving the aiming point 1 foot into the wind - 1 mph x 1.00 = 1 foot.

When you are more or less than 100 yards from the hole you adjust.

If you are 167 yards from the hole convert 167  to 1.67 and multiply by the wind speed.

If the 90° cross wind is 10 mph, then move your aim point 16.7 feet into the wind (10 mph x 1.67 = 16.7 feet).

Another example is you have a shot that is 92 yards from the hole and you have the same 90° cross wind that is 10 mph. So then -  0.92 x 10 mph = 9.2 feet you move the aim point.

Wind is often at more or less than 90° to the line of your shot, or a quartering wind.

A quartering wind that is 45° (+ or -) use a factor of 0.7.

An example is a 12 mph wind that is at a 45° angle to the line of your shot that is 145 yards from the hole. The math is 12 mph x 0.7 x 1.45 = 12.18 feet you move your aim point on the green.

Thanks Apex for this calculation. I had been looking for a math to calculate wind. Had been doing it with just "feel" all this while... Let whoever say whatever... IT WORKS.

I've always had problems in high/moderate side winds and this worked just perfect for me... Tried it on both R11s and on G20s.... Works great...

Thanks again...

Very good info. thanks for that.  I can add that to my Golf shot/Club calculator spreadsheet!

bam!  prob said 100 diff ways - but this I understand - best gift ever :)

i'll re-read this till I memorize lol - at least 10 more times :)

thanks man

Put the formula in a spreadsheet so you dont have to remember it/do it in head along with all of the other calculations you may do.

Dear Kat:  How., pray tell HOW does one reach the Sans VEM condition ?

Sans = without ... if you figure it out, let us know please.  WGT's game program will start messing with dinged shots if you're doing well ... well, at least mine.  It's part of the program.

I am totally confused by all of these mathematics, as I smoked dope during those years in high school lol...but i have always used the distance x wind divided by .005 and i am usually dang close on dinged shots...my avg is 12 ft to the pin so i cant be way off...Apex and Kat, its just confusing.

That's why I wrote an approach calculator ... you can't "feel" the wind ... just apply either a guess or a calculation to combat it.  With the calculator, all I do is enter the yardage, elevation wind speed and direction, then click "Calculate" ... it's all right there.

No muss, no fuss and no thinking involved!  I let my computer do the calculations for me.
