Can the typical golfer hit the green from 150? - Page 5

post #73 of 80

And I made a spreadsheet of my GIR and FIR and this is what I found. Did this to help myself find weaknesses and strength.

F= Fairway G= Green

 

F par 5- 51%

F par 4- 41%

G par 5- 73%

G par 4- 62%

G par 3- 61%

G x<100- 84%

G 100-125 74%

G 125-150 68%

G 150-175 59%

G 175-200 57%

G 200-225 45%

G 225-250 31%

G 250+ 11%

Now believe me or not but my irons are the absolute best part of my game and if I'm 125+ I always go for the center of the green. I usually lose strokes with drives in trees making me punch out 1 or 2 times a round and my putting as I average 32.3 putts a round.

I might call you something else ...

 

but it would not be gentlemanly to do so.

 

Think what you like, and have a good day in the rough. ;-)

Now I'll even give you the stats my professional coach has on me and everything to prove that this isn't some sort of thought up concoction.

FIR stats from today - 86% FIR.

 

As for approaches one on #12 par 5, 190 hybrid from 195 yrds stuck 12 ft from pin, #18 from 180 pin high a foot off on left fringe. #5 par 3 175 yrds rolled a foot off back onto fringe, #8 par 3 192 yrds again hit green but rolled to back fringe. Did stick a few from 70 to 110. Missed several more 150 to 180 yrd approaches, some a few yrds short/long or left/right.

 

Hitting the fairway at this point is not the problem... approaches on the other hand need some work. :blink:

I would imagine that anyone who is near scratch should be able to hit the green from 150 yards about 50% of the time, more if it's from the fairway to a green that isn't heavily guarded. I'm not sure how others would fare.

I guess it depends on the definition of typical, and how often you expect them to hit the green.

 

I'm probably a "typical" golfer. Higher handicap, mostly a weekend player...

 

I "can" hit the green from 150, but I don't expect to. I'd say I'm probably about 25-30% from that distance with a clear shot.

My definition of "typical" would be players in the 95-110 range, which is most of the course on any given Sunday, and those players can probably hit the green from 150 out 20% of the time at best.

As for me, when I do manage to hit the green from that distance the ball usually bounces or rolls off to some crazy greenside lie, because I can't get the ball up high enough to land softly, so I lay up and look for a real shot at up and down, no GIR but that's where I'm at as a player at this point, that's why when I practice I spend most of my time on the longer fairway shots, and hopefully someday I'll be able to get on in regulation more often on those par 4's.

If you're not a terrible putter, like me! :-D
