Sometimes I get help from scorecard design. If the scorecard has an outline of each hole above the yardage and hole score box, I often sketch the shot path after the hole.
Big problem, some cards are slick on one side, so then it's hard to get a sketch line with a scoring pencil.
If I review the shot sketches right after the round, it usually triggers recall of the short-game events.

In the booklet, each hole has a grid beside it where you can mark your drive as left, right or hit (fairway) / approaches L, R, short. long, or on green / and info chips and putts too. (I'm describing this from memory; can't remember where I put the booklet).
I can recount every shot I take during a round, and that memory lasts for possibly 2-3 rounds played afterwards. I play a lot so these 'every shot' memories don't' stay for long.
