I know Erik's theory is very sound and I understand his logic here and I believe for a high level player this would make perfect sense.
I certainly do agree though that an elite player needs greens in regulation but for those of us less skilled and not very long hitters than our efforts need to be put into other parts of the game.
I disagree with the characterization that the ratios are only important for a high level player.
If you're looking to break 90 then you need to be near every green in regulation and get up and down once in 18 holes (while avoiding double bogeys) to break 90 (par 72).
So that means you really can't hit a drive OB, chunk a shot into the water, etc. You only have to two-putt everything to break 90 (and since you're chipping or pitching frequently you'll one-putt a few most certainly).
65/25/10 is for all players. It's up to the PLAYER to assess whether they have an actual weakness, or whether they just think they do or are fooled into thinking they do.
