## Field Goal Distance Calculator

The Field Goal Distance Calculator is a tool used to estimate the distance a field goal kicker needs to kick the football in order to score.

### Formula

The formula for calculating the field goal distance takes into account the line of scrimmage and the end zone.

**Field Goal Distance = Line of Scrimmage + 17 yards + 10 yards – Depth of the Holder**

### Example

Let’s say the line of scrimmage is at the opponent’s 30-yard line, and the holder is positioned 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Using the formula, we can calculate the field goal distance:

Field Goal Distance = 30 yards + 17 yards + 10 yards – 7 yards = 50 yards

In this scenario, the field goal distance would be 50 yards, meaning the kicker would need to kick the football 50 yards to score a field goal.
