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.
