    Danny's / Naturali's Method is killing me right now.  I abbreviated it for easier use.......

    First calculate (green speed divided by dot speed) - save that number

    Then calculate (distance minus elevation) - save that number

    Then calculate (distance minus elevation) - save that number

    Then calculate (distance minus elevation) - save that number

    Then multiply the 2 numbers you get in step 1 and 2

    Then calculate (distance minus elevation) - save that number

    Then divide or multiply that number you get in 3 by 1.25

    Someone please tell me if I'm forgetting an important step or if the method is just a scam.

    Do it this way

     

    1. First calculate (green speed divided by dot speed) - save that number
    2. Then calculate (distance minus elevation) - save that number
    3. Then multiply the 2 numbers you get in step 1 and 2
    4. Then divide that number you get in 3 by 1.25

    Papabukk:

    Any way you might simplify that formula for us math challenged folk?

    is tat green speed divided by dots times distance minus elevation? Sorry I’m not understanding. 

    Thanks in advance. 

    ((green speed / dot speed in seconds) * (distance in feet - elevation in inches))/1.25

    Yes you have it correct, but the bracketing is important.

    Say you have:

     

    • green speed 13
    • dot speed 7
    • distance 23 ft
    • elevation 2"

     

    You should get 31.2 inches of break

    If you simply did the calculations one after another you'd get 41.1 which wouldn't be correct.

    Do it this way

     

    1. First calculate (green speed divided by dot speed) - save that number
    2. Then calculate (distance minus elevation) - save that number
    3. Then multiply the 2 numbers you get in step 1 and 2
    4. Then divide that number you get in 3 by 1.25

     

    Should equal 31.2

    HTH,

    brad

    Isn't that exactly the same as mine?

    I don't know is it?  It looked like you had lots of steps.

    Not really sure how to respond to it's a scam except that it seemed to work for Danny.

    No because you repeated step 2 several times and your step 4 is complete nonsense. Danny said divide by 1.25 not multiply or divide by 1.25.

    As for being a scam, most if not all scams try to get something from you. Danny by th way of Kavvz gave this to us freely.

    The 2 things you might be missing is #1 you have to know what the distance to aim from the hole correlates to your monitor. 

    #2 you have to have the speed of the putt right. Hit it too hard and it won't break as much as the calculation, Hit it too softly and it will break much more that the calculation.

    Yiannis1970:
    there's room for 7 cups on a grid.

    saw an update to this thread so dropped in...

    ??? I am not sure how you squeezed 7 cups into one grid.  from the image provided the left grid line cuts through the first hole about 1/3 to 1/4 of the way into the hole then the 7th cup only makes it about 1/4 of the way.

    I didn't squeeze anything. The first hole to the right is the main hole. If you see, is a bit (about 1/4) off axis the red line. If you move the red line 1/4 to the right exactly at the center of the hole, there's room for 7 cups (with the red line at the center of the first and last cup). Things are pretty simple...just take a screenshot and try to photoshop it yourself. I didn't squeeze anything...it's all there.

    To complete my argument, here it is:

     

    DYybfWR

     

    X4x8JrH

     

    The width of the grid is 207 pixels. The width of the cup is 35. 35 x 7 = 245. The red grid line is at the center of the cup, so at 35 : 2 = 17.5. So we subtract 245 - 17.5 - 17.5 = 210 pixels. 7 cups.

    WGT should run some ads based upon this thread to really attract the kids to the game: “So easy, even a mathematical engineer can do it.”

    Wouldn't the resolution that you run the game at factor in?
