I've got the basics of putting, but I want to improve further and was reading this bit of putting advice:

http://mingol.shihiko.net/?page_id=9

Since I'm playing an NA version, I was going by the author's second example:

"The same formula works for Hot Shots Golf series, but you just need to tweak it a little...

Flag Indicator Power Gauge% (+/-(Uphill/Downhill #ft.) / (30/60/90/120ft. Putter Max Distance) x 100)% = Amount of Power % Required

With that an Example: Flag is at 50%, 0.30ft. Downhill, 30ft. Putter Max Distance...
50%-(0.3/30*100)% = 40% of Power Gauge."

Seems easy enough, but when I do the math myself I get 49%, not 40%. Am I doing something out of order?

Easy way to think of it for the NA/EU version is this.

30ft putter: .03 = 1% power
60ft putter: .06 = 1% power
90ft putter: .09 = 1% power

As Shihiko's guide says, keep in mind there are putts that the formula does not work on. Identifying what these putts are is the difference between being a great putter and a good one.
