Much less leave a reasonable birdie putt?
Not in my experience!
I'm a bogey golfer, pretty happy to score 15 to 18 over, drive 220 or so, but average over 80% fairways. I can on a good day stick the green from 180, or if really on a bit more. Of course, this is on a course where one can allow the ball to run up from the front.
I often, after a round or practice session, observe the 18th green from the clubhouse (with a brew or several ) as others approach the 400 yard par 4. The tee shot is downhill, the fairway quite fast, and the 150 yard marker is not out of range for most. Yet the typical second shot is 150 to 200 or so.
I am not surprised to see that those who have 170 or more cannot get a GIR, but am somewhat amazed that 90% to 95% of those from 130 to 165 miss the green by a good 30 yrds (over, under, left, or right).
To be fair, I have seen some FEW very fine approach shots that have a good look at birdie.
What is your experience?
