What is the most GIR you have ever hit in a round?

51 posts in this topic

My best was 16... And I shot a measly 73 that day. My average last year was 11. How many greens did you hit on your best day? And how many do you normally hit?

11 average is outstanding!

I'm not much of a stats guy.....probably something like 14 for my best ever.  Usually around 7-8ish.  Results in a scoring average that usually runs in the 79-81 range.

I hit all 18 at Whispering Woods Golf Club. Two of the par fives I hit in two.

Wow, you rarely see tour players do that! What did you shoot that day?

64 . During the Forward Tees experiment (5298 yards). Still… I'll take it. :)

The most I've hit playing a course over 6500 yards is 17. I shot 68 that day, including a three-putt on a really long putt after I punched out from some crap onto the very front of a green. The greens in northwestern PA (and the whole NE of the U.S.) tend to be pretty small. It's pretty easy to get 13, 14 FGIR (Fringes + GIR) but still only have 8 actual GIR. It's tough to have days, even on 6600 yard courses, where you hit too many GIR.

Makes sense. The course I play at has very large greens. Some are harder to miss than hit. :-P There's a Par 3 that plays 135 yards from the back tees, and the green is huge.

Never impressive enough for me to remember how many (and I never kept track).

On my typical "good rounds" I probably hit 8 to 10 greens and most of the rest are on or just off of the fringes.

My typical bad rounds are much uglier than that.

The only time I ever played where it was easy enough to remember I only played 8 holes before it got dark. On that day I hit all  8 greens and made 7 birdies and the longest birdie putt was less than 8 feet. Actually my one 2 putt was from about 4 feet on the second hole.

No clue what was going on that day because nothing like that has ever happened to me since. I was working on hitting fades that day and I normally hit draws but even trying that again didn't have the same results so... the only answer is luck.

Just wish the best golf I ever played would have come on a day when I was playing a full round instead of 8 holes. ;-)

My personal record is also 16, which resulted in a very good round for me. My average is usually between 11-12. I had a full season worth of stats tracked for last year and my average floated around 11.6 I believe, but my computer crashed and I lost it all which is a bummer.

I quit keeping track a couple of years back when I discovered that there was little correlation between GIRs and my final score.  But I think best I ever did at over 6,000 yards was 15 GIRs as I recall. In my case my final score seem to relate to my "off the tee performance", not necessarily Fairways hit but playable, and "putting performance".

Hmm, I find that interesting because my score seems to be a direct link to my GIR %. Rounds that I hit a lot of GIR's, I score very well. Rounds that I miss most greens, I don't. I believe that I'm decent at scrambling for pars, but they are so much easier when you have a birdie putt instead of having to get up and down.

I can only answer that with it surprised me too.  But the numbers are the numbers and I found that the strongest correlation was keeping the ball playable off the tee (I now hit 3 woods and 3 irons off tees on tight fairways).  This often leaves me with missed, not by a lot, of greens.  But I have a reasonable short game from inside of 20 yards or so and often get down in 2 and sometimes 1.  So my scores are better when I don't have shots on the score card that I didn't get to swing at and/or chips back to the fairway; e.g. towardance is more important than furtherance in the final score for me.  However, in a never ending effort to become a better golfer,  this may change for me as the last couple of months I have been taking lessons and my "duck hook propensity" is greatly diminished and I am now getting better with the big stick and using it more on the course.  So maybe time to re-evaluate the GIR and final score correlations.

Looking through a few years of stats ... Best I can find is a round of 16/18 GIR. Hit every fairway, two-putted every single green, shot 72, +1.

Been keeping stats for a couple of years now, and the most GIR I've had has been 11, which I've done 3 or 4 times.  My average is just under 7 per round, however, I've played several rounds at an easy par 3 course that have skewed that number in my favor.  My average is probably closer to 6.

15 of 18 is the best I have managed.  My average tends to be around 7-8.

I've had several rounds recently with 15/18GIR, I don't know what my record is though.  It's annoying to think that you get so many GIR but can't get many "nice birdie chances."  I remember about 10 years ago, I got the best advice/cool fact from a random guy I was playing with.   He said the difference between pros and minor pros is that the pros don't necessarily get more GIR, they just get the ball closer to the hole more often the others, giving more birdie opportunities.  It is only a matter of a few strokes at that level, and the more birdie opportunities give you those extra strokes.

The most I've hit is probably around 13, but cut that in half and you'll have my average. The distance is never an issue for me, as it I assume it is not for most people, however I'm usually around the green due to accuracy issues. I'd like to keep track of more stats this year. I have a bad habit of slacking off near the end of June where I'm only tracking putts and score.

I had one amazing day at a short course with big greens and hit 10. This was before I ever broke 90, and that included that day (which included two tens and many three-putts). My best in what I'd consider my "semi-skilled" era was 8, although produced a far better score than the outlier mentioned.

    • Iron Game Suffers when Driver Going Well
      For high handicappers myself included, this is typical.   I think it is b/c we don't have the same swing for irons and longer clubs.  If we get them both right in the same round, it is probably by pure luck or coincidence.  Grin and bear, and enjoy the journey.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      The topic title is the question who is the greatest golfer, the poll is the question who was the best. Two different things in my opinion. There's no doubt to me Tiger was a better golfer. How could he not? Spieth, McIlroy, Day but even guys like Wiesberger, Luiten and Donaldson play better golf than Jack. The game evolved so much over the years, and got so much more professional. If Jack would have been around in this era he would benefit from all that as well and be a better golfer than he was (and probably top those guys I just mentioned). But who was the greatest. How do you measure that (can you)? Tiger was dominant in a stronger field, winning more titles than you can count. Jack was the first of a kind, winning the biggest titles (majors) over an enourmous span and having the most of them. Isn't it mostly a matter of personal who you find 'greater'? For me Johan Cruyff is the greatest Dutch football player of time, but I have no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben were/are better because the game evolved. 
    • Making a Murderer Discussion Thread (Spoilers Likely)
      Obvisously... she took his case about a month ago. On one hand I hope Avery is guilty as hell, on the other hand it would be an amazing story and twist if turns out to be set up and she can prove that. I think that chance is less than 1%, but still..... Possibly, good point. Should be quite some blood though since they found 'drops', meaning it was dripping from (in this theory) his glove. Exactly my point. I don't think the blood was freely flowing, because than there should be a lot more blood in the car. They found blood consisting with bloody hair. Seems to me, and I know I'm not an expert, that she was already dead when she was in the car, because that would explain the little amount of blood found (no pumping of the heart, no flow of blood) and the place it was found (in the back). One can easily argue that he killed in the garage, moved her to the car, and only then got the plan to burn her instead and moved her again; to the pit. But the 'problem' is that that's not what the DA said what happenend. In my opinion that blood in the car contradicts the story (or truth) he wants us and the jury to believe, and contradicts also with the story of Dassey which is the only thing that links Dassey to the case: his own words. That doesn't mean Avery is innocent, but it might raise some doubt. The DA should stick with the facts, not filling in the blanks with guessing. If he can't prove exact chronologically he shouldn't state it as 'fact'.   Absolutely. I'm not convinced in anything, not in my opinion, not in yours, not at all in the people who made the documentary. Also not a fan of conspiracy theory's. I don't think the murder was planted on him, but I do think some mistakes were made by the justice system. Mistakes that possibly should have lead to his and maybe even more Dassey's release, even though there's a big chance he did it. That's for me perhaps the most interesting part in this case and in the discussion. If we want a justice system where the chance is close to 0% that we convict someone innocent, and the prosecution and police need to follow the rules, it means sometimes the guilty walk free. I think everything they found on the compount while Manitowoc detectives were present should have been excluded. I think the DNA on the blood of the bullet should have been excluded. I think the 'confession' of Dassey should have been excluded. I think Dassey should have given at least a new trial, but that was denied by the same judge which handled his initial case (?!).
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      A long time ago, by Tiger's own admission,  said a golfer's career is measured by "majors won" . So if Woody does not break Jack's major record, then according to Woody, his career will be second to Jack's. Now Jack has said that he expects (expected) Woody to break his major record. So Jack is saying he expects Woody will have the better career.  These are the only two guys who would know who had the best career.   Neither one is going to be the GOAT. They will just be a GOTE. 
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Nope, you blindly worship Jack.  It is obvious that you have not read much, if any, of the thread.  But hey, you saw Jack.  In person, yet.  So what.  I did too.  I saw him win his last USGA championship at Cherry Hills.  I saw Tiger play as well - although in person I only saw practice rounds.  So what.  That does not make my assessment of their respective careers more or less credible.  Geee, I never saw Hogan play so I guess we cannot count him in the discussion.   You think Jack was better.  That is fine.  You are entitled to your opinion.  Just don't spoil it with specious reasons or arguments.  Because those we will slice apart like one of Klinger's salamis.
