    Like some advise ,thoughts  and suggestions on mapping your own clubs and if this make sense. 
    can you take a club that has a max range of 150 yards. And use scale to map distances using percentages. For example the 50% spot club would go 75 yards given zero conditions, and 25% it would go 37.5 yards. And do this with all clubs and percentage marks

    thanks ahead of time

    That's what I did. Went through a few balls doing it, but if you change balls or clubs your numbers will be off.

    Agree about keeping same ball , and yardages with zero conditions and as or subtract from there has to closer then just a guess ­čśé

    I can only speak for the driver and the putter. Neither club went the distance advertised, or selected.  My drives always went further and my putts were frustratingly short.

    Except for putters, the swing meter power gauge isn't linear.

    En grosso modo, the further away from 100% (the less power you apply), the more power you should compensate (add).

    THIS CHART might be useful to you. Cheers.

    So on the scale the 25% 50% and 75% are not correct ??? I know how to figure these percentages ie. a 200 yard club at max , would be 100 yards at the 50% line given zero conditions, I am not sure about the lines in between , if not linear looks like a lost cause correct, unless we have a math genius here that can figure what to use!

    Did you take a look at the chart I'd left a link for you? (All you gotta do is click on "THIS CHART" above). Somebody already did the hard work for the rest of us so... why not just take advantage of it?

    ↓↓ My pleasure! I also suggest you read the whole thread. It'll eventually answer your question. Cheers and good luck. ↓↓

    Its been answered a few time now, but I would suggest going to practice mode on kiawah where you can get some shots at almost even elevation set up for low winds. Use the mulligans and see where 50% on your meter gets you using different clubs.

    I understand why you would think 50% = half club distance- but its like taking a 400hp car and saying it will produce 200hp at half throttle.

    It just does not work the way your thinking it does.
