MATH SL IA HELP!!

Recommended Posts

so my question is " how does club head speed affect the distance of a golf ball" im just worried that this is too simple, im doing it on correlation as i find that the easiest (if you have any other topic suggestions please tell me) 

however i was thinking about changing it to "how does club head speed affect spin and distance of a golf ball" is this better and if so how do i do a correlation with three variables.

 

Thank you!!

Keep it to 2 variables so you can narrow your focus. 

A few questions:

1) How are you going to measure club speed? Do you have a time lapse camera to help you do this?

2) How will you measure the distance from the point of contact to where the ball lands? Wouldn't the vast distances a golf ball can travel cause inherent inaccuracies.

 

A suggestion: What about the probability of making a putt vs the distance from the hole? This would be easier to measure since you can:

a) measure the distance from the hole easily

b) make multiple putts for each distance away from the hole to calculate the probability of success.

Let me know what you think.

I have the measurements ready, using a 50,000$ device pretty accurate. im doing 2 independent variables and one dependent using multiple linear regression since its more fitting for SL, however i have to teach my self the topic since we didnt take it.

thanks!
