Unfortunately not all (any?) terms have been standardized so that they are the same all over except maybe the most basics stuff like distance.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Foot: a unit of distance that frolfers use to describe the distance of their throws. One foot equals 8.125 inches.

My 400 was at hawk hallow. The 370 was on a football field from the shot put circle to the long jump pit. We measured it with a wheel. 370 max d is not really that great, I am the weakest of everyone I play against, even Austin out drives me by over 100 feet.

Along those same lines assuming you're in the US, you might want to put something like the approximate Standard measurement, I know of a lot of people just starting out that have trouble understanding visualizing 10meters but when you tell them "Oh, about 40ft" they're spot on.

Also does it bug anyone else how most holes are measured in Feet but all the rules of the sport use Meters? Would love for them to switch just one.
