Just started trying to putt from the fairway to figure this out.
So far I can’t find any rhyme or reason between different distances to even have a starting point.
Here are two examples from working on it tonight.
1. 20 yards out. 9 yards fairway and 11 yards green. It took a 17 putt scale @ 80% power. Got the heartbeat and stopped a couple inches from the hole.
2. 29 yards out. 11 yards fairway and 18 yards green. It took a 33 putt scale @ 57% power. Didn’t get the heartbeat because the break was off but the distance was on the money.
Hoping someone figured this out?
What i would have done if i wanted to putt from the fairway:
I would ''split'' the putt in 2 parts.
Let's say you have a 23 yds putt: 18 yds of fairway + 5 yds of green. Very very important is to consider the elevation if any. So, i would have played the putt just to reach the green. This would be my guide to understand how much i need to reach the green.
Then i would have repeated the exercise from various distances with the same goal (just to reach the green) to figure out if there's a pattern behind my strokes. (probably will be)
Then, i would have added the yardage for a normal putt (inside the green).
Another important point is that if you eventually come up with some kind of formula, this will work only on this specific course. You need to do it all over again for every other course.
