Golf Yardage Error Calculator

This converter requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This script is designed to show the potential for mis-clubbing a shot to the green, based on inaccurate distance assumption. The distances to the greens on most golf courses are measured from the center of the fairway to the center of the green. For instance, most golf courses provide 150 yard markers indicating that it is 150 yards from a point in the center of the fairway to the center of the green. If your ball is perpendicular to the marker in the center of the fairway, but on the edge of the fairway or in the rough, you are NOT 150 yards from the center of the green! In our diagram, sides a and b are the horizontal and vertical legs of a right triangle. Side a represents the perpendicular distance from the center of the fairway, where distances to the green are measured, to the ball on either side of the center. Point B is the ball. Side b is the perpendicular distance from the real or hypothetical marker in the middle of the fairway to the center of the green. Point C is the real or hypothetical marker in the middle of the fairway. Side c is the hypotenuse; it is also the distance from the center of the green to the ball, assuming the ball is not in the center of the fairway. Point A is the center of the green. In our default information, your ball is 30 yards from the marker in the center of the fairway; the marker is 150 yards to the center of the green. Your ball is almost 153 yards away from the center of the green. Fill in the first two of the three fields for distance, then click Calculate Distance to see how far your ball is actually from the center of the green. You may change the defaults to distance of your selection. Very significant deviations occur the further your ball is from the center of the fairway. Try some variations of the defaults 30 yards from the center of the fairway at 50 yards from the center of the green in the center of the fairway; then try 100 and 200 yards in the center of the fairway
