Favorite Statistic

Although most folks would obviously choose the scoring average statistic, I
have always loved the BALL STRIKING statistic.

Ball Striking is computed by totaling a player's rank in both Total Driving and Greens in Regulation. And.. Remember Total Driving is Driving Distance AND Fairways hit...

Aside from scoring average, anyone had a fancy for a Tour stat? There are quite a few cool ones, like BOUNCE BACK, PUTTING AVERAGE, PROXIMITY TO HOLE, SCRAMBLING etc..

I like to keep track of my short game handicap. It has a lot to do with my over all score. Anything under 3 for greens I miss in regulation is good. Anything under 2 for GIRs is good. Right now I am at 2.68, which is equivalent to an 84 for 18 holes. 84 is what I am hovering over right now. I need to hit more greens in regulation, which also means I need to hit more accurate approach shots from 150+ yards.

Would you elaborate some more on these statistics?

The only stat I track is number of strokes per 18 holes....

Same here ... While I have an app that tracks fairways and putts ... I do not pay too much attention, as those stats have leveled out over the years ... I can almost predict those before the round ...

Thank god they don't track lefting your head ... Just can't keep it steady!

I'd say proximity on approaches from 175+.

I track hole-by-hole stats for the major categories.   The most important stats to me are GIR, Scrambling, and Putting.
