What is the most GIR you have ever hit in a round? - Page 2

My best ever is 11. One round I hit 10 greens in a row to finish a round but I had only hit one in the previous 8 holes so it was definitely a hot/cold round. I can't imagine a round where someone hit all 14 fairways and all 18 greens. Regardless of the score I would see that as about as good as it can get for a golfer. Some days putts fall and sometimes they don't but to have a ball striking day like that shows a different level of proficiency.
That is impressive Stretch!
I can honestly say I don't think I have had a round where I have hit more than 12 GIR. I was looking back on my golfshot stats and my average is 7 with 11 being the top end.
I get it up and down a LOT! Haha
Even on my personal best round of 73 I hit just 9 GIR. Had two birdies and one water ball. Mostly a lot of pars.
I hit 14/18 for what still is my lowest score to date a 76. My GIR is up to just over 40% and my misses are usually not horrific, not too bad a for a hacker. But the downside is my 3 putts are also up. I am hoping that changes when the greens shape up. There are a few holes on my course that I've never hit GIR.
I don't track my stats closely (I probably should start doing so), but if I had to hazard a guess, I would say 12-13 GIR's a few years ago at Skylinks. It was my first sub-80 round ever (I shot a 77) and what surprised me afterwards was how easy the game seemed. Every hole felt like a drive, approach & 2 putt. I didn't hole many long putts, but I had more stress free pars than I can ever remember. It's a shame you can't bottle that feeling, because I promptly when out and fired a 90 my next time out.
More impressive to me personally was a round last December in which I only managed to hit 7 GIR's but still tied my lowest ever round by shooting a 76. I was putting decently, but my wedge game 120 yards and in was lights out that day.
That's pretty strong.
Just as a point of reference, Tiger managed to average 12.2 GIR last year. Graeme MacDowell averaged 11.3.
