Risk reward, short club to tucked pin no water every pro going at that pin.
Water one side, they go to side of pin away from penalty.
I think your avg distance hole is off, its 24 foot range.
There might be variance, distance to hole gir and overall distance to hole.
But 24 foot putts is avg from stats I remember
150 yard shot is 450 feet, pros are 95% accurate or better
More like 97% accurate on the greens they hit at 150 yds
Pros are hitting wedge or 9iron from 150
Their gir is higher from 150 than the overall avg gir
Pros start to score at 150 yds
Non pros usually get close at 100 yards
2013 PGA tour median distance to the hole (125-150) yards. there are 180 PGA tour players on this list, the 90th is the median.
2013 Median average distance to the hole on all approach shots from all distances. Once again 90th is the median.
Can't beat the stats man.
2013 Median green in regulation percentage from 125-150 yards, again 90th is the median. Even the top GIR from this distance is only 80% not 95% like you think it is.
Yes their GIR is higher than their average, here is their average for all shots, only 65.25%
