For Those Who Track Stats - Share Your Stats!

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 

I noticed that several people have asked questions like how long till I can shoot x?  and obviously there is no way to answer something like that, but I've seen questions such as how many GIR for a x handicap player on average?  I've been curious myself of this and figured I'd start a thread where people that keep stats can share their current handicap and their main stats.  If everyone who keeps their stats contributes then people can see the ranges for various skill levels/handicaps.

 

The stats will be:  

1)  current handicap (actual usga hc or unofficial hc you keep yourself)

2)  how long you have been playing golf

3)  average GIR per round

4)  average FIR per round

5)  average putts per round (actual putts from the green only, same way the PGA tour counts putts)

6)  average number of holes par and better per round

7)  number of rounds you played in the last 12 months

 

 

Hopefully this will help answer these kinds of questions and be able to see where others are at and areas to work on.

Showoff. :-P 

 

HC is close to 18, getting much better this last three weeks.

Playing seriously for 1.5 years, playing for a little over 3

2 GIR

10 FIR

~38 to 42 putts per round

Par about 2 a full round 70.6/122, but I'm usually near the green in 2 on a par 4.

Played 25 18 hole rounds and 20 9 hole rounds.

I'll play. Though stats can be somewhat misleading if they are YTD. People that are trending down will have better stats for the last 20 that are representative of what their current index is. With that in mind I will post both

 

1)  Current hc 9.6 low of 8.8 in 2013, started at 12.3

2)  18 months but had pervious experience.

3)  YTD GIR 36.1% Last 20 43.7%

4)  YTD FIR 51% Last 20 51.9%

5)  YTD PPR 34.9 Last 20 36.5

6)  Par or better YTD 34.9 Last 20 43.7

7)  Not sure exactly how many rounds, didn't post some of the offseason stuff but upwards of 90.

These stats go back to the beginning of 2010, so don't really reflect at all my score if I were to go out and play right now. Especially the handicap index, which would be muuuuuuuch higher if I'd played more than a half-dozen rounds this year.

1) HC: 1.3. Lowest I got it was .1 two years ago, but that's when I was playing much more frequently, and that masked a lot of the issues I had.
2) Played seriously for about 9 years.
3) 10-11 GIR
4) 9.8 FIR
5) 32 putts
6) 12.6 holes of par or better per round.
7) Way too few. Hopefully many more in 2014.


EDIT: Changed FIR number. I had the percentage number and multiplied it by 18 to get 12.5. Of course, there are generally 14 fairways on a golf course, not 18. d2_doh.gif

Whoops ... I made the same mistake as Jamo originally ... My fairways are actually 4.8 per round. ;)

Give yourself more credit.  Typically there are 14 fairways so you hit 60%

post #17 of 34

 

1)  current handicap 24.1

2)  how long you have been playing golf 6 years

3)  average GIR per round 0.72

4)  average FIR per round 8.61

5)  average putts per round 34.02

6)  average number of holes par and better per round 1.04

7)  number of rounds you played in the last 12 months 60

 

All of my stats are worse than a year ago - lack of practice time does make a difference.

post #18 of 34

1)  current handicap: 0.7

2)  how long you have been playing golf: 30 years

3)  average GIR per round: 10.4

4)  average FIR per round: 9.6

5)  average putts per round: 31.5

6)  average number of holes par and better per round: most of them

7)  number of rounds you played in the last 12 months: 58 so far

 

It's been a disappointing year as both my GIR and putts have worsened over last year. I'm hoping that a recent lesson from my local teaching pro will help my ball striking going forward.
