Shot 107, on home course. First round with Arccos sensors, so I have stats!
- 0 GIR
- 5 nGIR
- 2.22 putts per hole
Most shots lost on poor tee shots or second shots getting me into trouble spots . A few duffed shots too.
Looking at the strokes gained/lost analysis - only 5/18 tee shots were "average", one was better than average, and the rest were poor. SImilarly, because the tee shots often got me into trouble, my second shots were often poor - only two average shots, the rest poor.
Okay, I have turned a corner on the commercials-with-golf on the same screen view. I just got to see Tony Finau and Tiger Woods make putts during an AT&T commercial. I don't much care for AT&T but their commercials are fantastic.
If it helps, think of course rating as allowing for fractional par. A 270-yard hole and a 435 yard hole may both appear on the scorecard as a par-4, but I would bet that in most circumstances, my average score on the former is lower than on the latter.
Par is also useful to track where the professionals are during a round when they've played an unequal number of holes.
