There are already so many instructions on how to calculate the correction exactly. So how do you get the number of rings you have to counteract so that the ball lands where you aim. There are a handful of programs that spit out the correct value with previously set parameters. Some even consider the wind direction in the amount of the correction value.
Well, I think that’s nonsense, because you always correct against the wind. Others are inaccurate because important parameters such as ball power or distance are missing. But the biggest shortcoming is shared by all of these programs. They are programs or apps that either run on the device you are currently playing Golf Clash on or require a computer to play.

Everything starts with the so-called masterlist. I found it somewhere by chance and since then has improved my game suddenly. This list contains the factors that result from the accuracy of the respective racket. If a racket has Accuracy = 45, like an ExtraMile Level 8, I get a factor of 2.1. First of all, for roughened iron and sand wedges, the accuracy value is halved for the further calculations. A Malibu 8 has Accuracy = 100 with a factor of 1. We calculate with Accuracy = 50, i.e. a factor of 2! Do not halve the factor, but the accuracy value! This is very important!
Another tool is the “GC Wind Tool”. This Excel sheet calculates the wind correction in terms of the number of rings that have to be counteracted without any VBA code. All conceivable parameters are taken into account, such as incline or descent, range of the clubs and power of the balls.

Yes, this also has an impact on the accuracy and explains why the ball lands in the rough with a Power 5 ball at 9 winds if you do not take the 13% into account and correct an entire ring too little. In addition to the accuracy, this file also contains the factor for the minimum range of the clubs(medium is half of it). I changed the file a bit and made it easier to use in my eyes.
As I said at the beginning, it is not always practical to have a computer with Excel next to it while playing. So I wrote down the racket data on a piece of paper (see picture) and calculated the wind correction using a simple formula:
Rings = Elevation * Ballpower: Wind.Accuracy * Distance * Wind
10% uphill, Titan (Power 3), Goliath 8, min. Distance, 6.5 wind
0.9 * 1.07: 1.96 * 0.67 * 6.5 results in 2.1 rings!
Goliath 8 minimum is 67% or 0.67. Medium is 83.5% or 0.835.
I used to only split the wind by accuracy (Goliath 8 rounded 2) and was surprised that I never hit the hole. Do the math. Without all parameters you get 3.2 rings, one more ring!

Why is the wind at the end of the formula? It is the only unknown in the tournament before a stroke. So you can enter the formula in your pocket and all you have to do is type in the wind. This minimizes the time lost during the shot. Of course, you can rearrange the formula as you like. Both * and: are commutative, i.e. can be changed in any order. Now you could write the reciprocal of the Wind.Accuracy in the table (2.1 -> 0.48), then you would only have to perform multiplications.
Since such a slip is not for everyone, I have created a printable table for it, which you can download here.
