Learning about the game of golf is a lifelong process. We, as golfers, are always looking for that vital tip that elevates our games to the next level. It's happened in the past, we've applied it well and realized success only to experience its retreat, sometimes never to be found again.
What you'll learn at Probable Golf will not disappear. The golf tips you'll learn throughout this site are based on the principles of golf science and mathematics. Apply them and enjoy! Consider this site your Golf Academy.
Playing in a little or big tourney, or a regular golf outing with a group of friends? Do you want to ensure you get a good mix of groups, so that players don't meet multiple times while others don't meet at all? Probable Golf can provide the optimized golf draw that you need. A draw which minimizes repeats and ensures as many meet in a foursome as possible. Learn more by clicking
Optimum Foursome Groupings
Putting is the part of the game in which even slight improvement will realize lower scores. To improve your putting, you can improve in one or more of the following areas:
1. Stroke Mechanics: There are some fundamentals essential to good putting.
2. Feel: No matter how flawless your stroke, you must develop good kinesthetic feel to stroke putts the correct distance.
3. Reading Greens: With a sound stroke and great feel, you still need to be able to read how much a putt will break and how to adjust for speed on uphill and downhill putts.
The first two areas require athletic moves that can be improved upon through practice (some tips on those later). But, the third area, reading greens, can be improved upon by anyone. Learn more by clicking
Reading Green Speed and Break.
There's a strong correlation between distance (how far you can hit the golf ball) and score. Longer hitters, in general, score lower than short hitters (of course there are exceptions to every rule). And there's a very strong scientific correlation between swing speed and distance. The higher your swing speed, the farther you'll hit the golf ball. Control is what will set you apart from the others and yield lower scores.
There are many ways that you can have your swing speed measured. There are now some fairly inexpensive devices that will do that for you. It's important that you get a good feel for how much farther you'll hit it with just a few more mph of swing speed. You'll find a popular app for this purpose here .Golf Club Swing Speed
As you know, weather is an important factor when playing golfer. Temperature, air pressure, wind, and altitude all can change significantly how far you can hit the ball. Learn more
Weather Dictates Club Distances.
The first thing of important to hitting such shots is predicting the distance. I say predicting, because that actual distance (from yardage markers or your Rangefinder) must be adjusted. Hitting uphill increases the playing distance. Hitting downhill decreases the playing distance. But how much? Learn more
Yardage for Uphill/Downhill Shots.
Probable Golf has developed a number of calculators to assist your play: Driver Distance, Handicap, Club Distance with Temperature, Club Distance with Altitude, Club Distance with Wind, Handicap, Hole Difficulty, etc. Learn more
I've used my golf ball trajectory computer model to calculate the actual distances uphill and downhill shots play for all the various clubs. You can instantly download my report.
TOr, you can send me your normal club ranges (your clubprint) and I'll compute your unique amount of adjustment for every 5 yards of elevation change.contact us
Using accurate golf ball trajectory software, one can calculate how to adjust your club selection for changes in temperature, wind, altitude and elevation (uphill/downhill shots). See below.
Warmer temperatures equate to longer carry distances. The difference between a cool morning and hot afternoon can be a full club.
You can provide me with yardages for each club in your bag. I'll input your values into a program I have written, and send you a template which will outline how different temperatures will change the real yardages for each club.
You can immediately download a copy "Reading Playing the Wind." I'll explain how you can easily measure the wind's speed (without using any kind of electronic device) and how much each mph of wind will affect your various club ranges.
You can provide me with yardages for each club in your bag. I'll input your values into a program I have written, and send you a template which will outline how different speed winds will change the real yardages for each club.
With increased altitude comes less dense air, meaning less friciton drag and longer carry distances.

You need to adjust your club selection when hitting uphill or downhill. But how much?
I've worked out how to estimate elevation change (uphill or downhill shots), and created a formula for how much shorter or longer a yardage plays. OR, send me the location of any golf hole along with your normal carry distances, and I'll work out how far the hole plays and what club to hit.
