    A pitching wedge a golfer is using gives the ball an initial angle of 50 degrees, what range of velocities (Vo) will cause the ball to land within 3 ft. of the hole? (the hole is 30 ft. from golfer). Assume that the hole lies on the plane of the ball's trajectory. I need help setting this problem up to start.
