I know... i mean only if this issue would get resolved, inconsistency is killing my scores. one day 15 putts over 9 holes and one day 29 ...

We'll get near the greens pretty quickly, and spend another 10 minutes on the green.
hahaha ... i know what you mean ... i finished a round of 18 in a abt 3 hrs 15-3 hrs 30 and i spent most of the time on the green

I can't fathom how somebody good enough to hit 10 GIR could average 3.22 putts per hole, no matter how little time is spent on the practice green. (It's almost physically impossible to practice putting less often than I do)
I do understand how your putting stats will go down a little bit with more GIR, because you're going to usually be further from the hole. But take a couple of one-putts and make them 3-putts and you should still have very little trouble staying south of 40.
it was a distance and line issue, the greens on this course have never been this slow. it was 115 when i started playing and went down to 10o during the rounds , one would assume wih that kind of heat greens would be hard and fast but noooooooooo they were watered heavily abt 2 hrs before i started playing. every approach shot with a 7 iron and below was checking and sticking on the green

So, it is possible to get a lot of GIR and still be a pretty bad putter. Maybe his definition of GIR is a little more loose and he counts stuff on the fringes?
I practice less putting that you do, and have magically gotten below 40 putts (hovers between 18 (9 holes) to 39 (18 holes)) just by playing more par 3 in the evenings these last two months.
So, 10 more putts than my worst day => more caffeine? Or something? Only the OP knows.
GIR is on the green no fringe nothing .. 10 girs was freakishly high for me ... 7 on the back 9 and 3 on the front. hole 10 par 3 .. on in 1 ..... 4 putts ....hole 11 short par 4 driver , and a 58 deg wedge on ..4 putts . hole 12 avg par 5 .... driver 5 iron and sw on .... hole 14 short par 3... 8 iron on .... 3 putts .... hole 15 short par 4, driver ... 58 wedge ,,, on ....4 putts .... hole 16 avg par 5 driver ,,, fade into adjoining fairway, 3 wood ... sand wedge ... on .... 3 putts hole 18 avg par 4, driver , 9 iron on .... dont remember the putts , will post all details inc yardage of all holes and putta later today
