GIR: 3 to break 90, 8 to break 80 - what do you think? - Page 2

The other thing you must consider is how well the greens are protected. If there is no penalty for missing close (sand, water, deep rough) you can hit less GIRs

I'm not sure I've ever hit more than 8 GIR, if I've even hit it, but I've broken 80 many, many times.  A better than average short game will skew the GIR requirement.

There are to many other factors in ones game to come up with GIR=score.

How often do you get up and down on the other holes?
How is your putting? If you 3 putt a GIR, it doesn't really count.
These are just a few examples of why I think those numbers aren't accurate.

I think the bolded is much more important than GIR. I played last weekend and had 5 GIR but I also had four 3putts. The result? a 91 that could've easily been an 87 if I had putted better.
