Hi,

Just wondering if anyone could tell me the best way to calculate the approx backspin (rpm) a golf ball given ball speed and launch angle figures?

Or just how to go about getting average backspin measurements of balls hit at different angles and speed? It doesn't have to be super accurate just averages and approximations.

Thanks in advance.

Andy.
