When a rangefinder says it is 150 to the FLAG how far is it to the hole assuming the flag is 6 feet above the hole?

The distance is 150 BUT what it plays would be different. I believe the general rule is add a yard for every 10 yards of elevation change.

QUOTED  The distance is 150 BUT what it plays would be different. I believe the general rule is add a yard for every 10 yards of elevation change.

So, if I shoot a distance of 150 yards and the green is 30 feet (10 yards) up, I only add one yard??? weber2323, I thought you were a bean counter?

For me it's simple, why take this part of the fun out of the game by using a range finder?

For the purposes of golf, almost exactly the same distance.

There is a negligible additional distance of 1/100 of a yard from the range finder directly to the hole.

I got this by imagining a right triangle with the flag stick as side A (2 yards), the distance from the range finder to the flag as side B (150 yards), and the distance from the range finder to the hole as side C.

does the green lead away or towards the golfer? Are the greens soft or firm? What about the collar firm or soft? All these should play into your ultimate calculation. Also if there are puffy clouds or not, just because I like puffy clouds "D
