Well, everyone should be in the swing of things as we get into the thick of summer. Our Northern friends are in the midst of their season and our Southern friends have the cheap off-season rates. Golf is happening, but is your golf happening? Post your stats for this year here and what you would like to work on based on your stats.
After 20 rounds this year (actually more, because there are some courses that I didn't get a chance to load into my Scorecard Software), here are my numbers:
Low Round: 74
GIR 1st Putt: 23 feet
Putts: 30.85 (30.2 is last 10 rounds)
Putts GIR: 1.96
Putts MGIR: 1.53
7-10: 38% (48% in last 10 rounds)
10-15: 12% (18% last 10)
What's improved? Scrambling. I have been making more putts from 7-15 feet and have less putts when I do miss the green (u/d first putt distance has not changed significantly). I attribute that to the Belly putter. It is finally paying off as putts overall has come down from 31.9 to 30.2 (last 10 rounds vs 79 rounds). Something that I need to improve is fairways and greens. At 50% on the fairway and 25% on either side tells me that I am all over the place. I need to start thinking about hitting a more reliable drive to eliminate more of one side. The real key is hitting more greens. Luckily I am getting up/down more often which also could suggest that I am getting closer to more greens, but I need to actually be on the putting surface more. With a scoring average of 80, that works out to 7.75 greens per round. If I could average 9 greens per round, my scoring average could easily be 2-3 strokes better. The other stat that really bugs me is the average of 1 penalty shot per round. It's usually off the tee and 1 full shot per round just seems a little high.
What's your story?
