stimpmeter is a device that measures the speed of a green.
Stimpmeter is an extruded aluminum bar, 36 inches long, with
a V-shaped groove extending along its entire length. It has
milled ball-release notch 30" from the tapered end (the end
that rests on the ground). The underside of the tapered end
away to reduce bounce as a rolling ball makes contact with
the green. The V-shaped groove has an included angle of 145
thereby supporting a golf ball at two points ˝" apart. A ball
rolling down the groove has a slight overspin, which is thoroughly
consistent and has no deleterious effect on the ensuing measurments.
The ball-release notch is designed so that a ball will always
be released and start to roll when the Stimpmeter is raised
to an angle of approximately 20 degrees. This feature ensures
the velocity of the ball will always be the same when it reaches
the tapered end.

The end result
from the ball accelerating down the stimpmeter ramp is a speed
of 6.00 ft/s. The distance that the ball travels is the stimp
speed (i.e. 10.5 ft roll means a stimp speed of 10.5)

To build your own stimpmeter
Go to your home center and get a 4 foot section of moulding called "cove moulding" ( $4.00). This moulding is flat on the back with a perfect golfball size groove in the center. Cut a length to 36". The groove for the ball should be 6" from the top. With a coping saw, carefully notch a 1/8" wide groove into the wood at 6". Place a ball in this groove and test to see if it releases when you raise the top side. The correct release point is 20 degrees. You will have to experiment with the notch until you feel you are getting it to release at this angle.

a stimpmeter, there is error when measuring the speed on sloped
greens. There is a method used to reduce this error. Find out
