Was going to start a thread but spotted this in my search.
Really surprised there isn't more people involved on this thread, or that some who are posting, are selective in the areas they are keeping stats.
It took me a while to get into the habit admittedly, but it's a 5 min (max) exercise using Golfshot after a round.
1) current handicap (actual usga hc or unofficial hc you keep yourself, CONGU offical HC for Ireland ): 17.2
2) how long you have been playing golf: 1 year seriously (2 very casual years before that)
3) average GIR per round: 30.1% (5.4 greens)
4) average FIR per round: 48% (6.7 fairways out of 14)
5) average putts per round (actual putts from the green only, same way the PGA tour counts putts): 36
6) average number of holes par and better per round: 2% Birdies, 28% Par (5.4 holes Par or better)
7) number of rounds you played in the last 12 months: 40
Hoping to see a big reduction in my HC once our season starts in March/April.
I am not a Sandbagger, I promise
There is just a serious flaw in our HC system over here and my HC has went unchanged since the end of our "HC Season"
Anyone that is making improvements/taking the game serious over the winter season (which I have) is generally at an advantage when the real season begins.
My GIR and FIR have improved greatly of late, last five rounds being FIR 54% and GIR 34%
Getting consistent with my scoring, averaging +17 for the last 5 (with a few blow ups each round)
By and large my stats for last year reflect my goals for last year, that being, to improve my long game firstly (Home course is 6,800yards)
My second real season of golf will focus on the short game now that my long game is getting me into scoring positions.
That's the plan anyway, I hope to get to single figures this year.
