Thus far, i was told its in yards by Ping staff, Punggol coaches n Pro poh. Cool
Recently they ve a contest, 'Hit the car'! Basketball
Car placement was moved to 125m where you re suppose to hit w five shots n each shot carry pts. bounce
Then the 125 distance board was located right infrt of e car say +-9%! clown
This says it all n if nt, u try hittg yr PW. Usually 90-110m average dependg on individual n yr shot ll tell you liao. Wink

I was told initially that it's in yards.

However, with the gradual up slope and condition of the ball there, it can be presumed that you are hitting the 125Y, 150Y and 200Y target areas as meters.

Thanks simoner. I asked one pro there, and he said he used this laser to check the 50 marker and it was in metres.

But I concur to your great analogy simoner. Very Happy

This is interesting. I'm a regular of Punggol range too. Hope this yard/metre debate gets settled once and for all.

Hmmm I think it's yard as it tends to be 10% shorter distance compare to I play on other range...my 20cents worth

I can hit further at punggol compared to Bishan range... I know Bishan is in meters, just thought that punggol should be in yards. Very Happy
