So I have started an Excel spreadsheet to track the various stats of my rounds as a tool to target areas of improvement, but I've ran across a few scenarios that I wasn't sure how to put in the sheet. Tell me how you would mark the following scenarios.
1) Missed a GIR by a couple inches, but close enough where I chose to putt the ball instead of chipping. Should this be marked as a GIR or not? I've had a couple instances where I've done this and 3-putted, so is it a GIR and 3 putt (what I usually put down), or a missed GIR and a 2-putt?... Or should it be marked as a missed GIR and still 3 putts?
2) Hit a ball OB so I took my penalty and then re-teed. Went on to hit the fairway on my 3rd shot and green on my 5th shot (Par 5). Should this be marked all the way around as a missed fairway and a missed GIR, or do I add an extra attempt and count both the misses and hits. For example, on that set of 9 holes should I account for 10 possible GIR's and an extra fairway?
I want to keep my stats as accurately as possible so that I can really see my strengths and weaknesses. I know in #2 it should probably just be misses all the way around, and if that's the case then that's how I'll mark it. By doing so though it just kind of highlights a weakness that really wasn't there in the missed GIR. Aside from the drive OB, I hit 3 great shots which left me a two footer for bogey (should have been birdie). Played the hole perfectly, but I'm guessing the proper ruling would be missed FW, missed GIR, and 1 putt?
