    Here's a chart I copied last year off the forum. This isn't my creation. This is  the original that I copied from a post in the forum. Mine has been altered for my clubs and balls. It is actually a pretty good starting point for new players that have no idea how much a head or tail wind is going to affect their shots. GIve it a try and manipulate the yardages to suit your clubs and balls. I know for me personally this chart helped a lot when I started out.

    It is easyer to memoryse a constant 0.58. For 100 y shot a 1 mph wind will deviate the ball with 0.58 yards. You do the math for the rest. If distance is 170 and the wind 14mph we  multiply 0.58x1.7x14=13.8y.

    So doing math for each shot is easier than looking at the textedit document open next to my game client window with all the compensated yardages?

    Seriously, if you can do the math for each shot in your head in the time it takes you to peak over at the chart then I have mucho respecto.

    Jim, he got it directly from the big table above.  Its a constant in all the values listed.

    100yd, 5mph wind = 2.92yd

    How much will a 100yd shot be affected by a 1mph wind?

    2.92/5 =.584

    Understood, Andy, but where did the number come from in the first place? I remember the insane posting by the guy that dreamed up those charts. Days and days of mile long threads with all these numbers. LOL-I think that morphed into the Turner Chronicles at the time.

    IMO, if one is  calculating yardages this tight you're just setting yourself up for a rant or something. I mean, 1/2 a yard??!! C'mon. With the deviations built into this game that's just crazy.

    Spin alone with a Callaway i(s)  can make that chart look completely foolish. I'm talking any wind on the chart  and  yardages being manipulated tremendously...10 / 15 yards.

                                                                                                           Gamers.....
