Favorite Statistic

9 posts in this topic

Although most folks would obviously choose the scoring average statistic, I have always loved the BALL STRIKING statistic. Ball Striking is computed by totaling a player's rank in both Total Driving and Greens in Regulation. And.. Remember Total Driving is Driving Distance AND Fairways hit... Aside from scoring average, anyone had a fancy for a Tour stat? There are quite a few cool ones, like BOUNCE BACK, PUTTING AVERAGE, PROXIMITY TO HOLE, SCRAMBLING etc..

I like to keep track of my short game handicap. It has a lot to do with my over all score. Anything under 3 for greens I miss in regulation is good. Anything under 2 for GIRs is good. Right now I am at 2.68, which is equivalent to an 84 for 18 holes. 84 is what I am hovering over right now. I need to hit more greens in regulation, which also means I need to hit more accurate approach shots from 150+ yards.

Would you elaborate some more on these statistics?

Same here ... While I have an app that tracks fairways and putts ... I do not pay too much attention, as those stats have leveled out over the years ... I can almost predict those before the round ... Thank god they don't track lefting your head ... Just can't keep it steady!

Yep the best players are on tour because of how well they hit it. Have you seen this thread? You might like it.

I'd say proximity on approaches from 175+.

I track hole-by-hole stats for the major categories.   The most important stats to me are GIR, Scrambling, and Putting.

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
