GHIN Advanced Stats

  1. 1. Do you use the advanced stats (putts, GIR, fairways hit) with the GHIN hole-by-hole entry?

For the first time in a loooong time, I have a GHIN number (I was disappointed my old number was not still available. I still remember it, and it was only six digits).

Anyway, I'm entering hole-by-hole scores with the "advanced stats." Now, let's be real: calling them that is a bit silly, as it's just fairways, greens, and putts. Counting stats. But still, it's something.

One suggestion I'm passing up the flagpole: auto-select the GIR stat. Pre-select the checkbox for a GIR if the player gets:

  • An albatross or eagle.
  • A birdie with one putt.
  • A par with two putts.
  • A bogey with three putts (and a double with four).

Pre-select the red X if the player gets anything but the above. The player can always change it, but this would basically make it so they almost never have to.

I always used to track this on my scorecard before it was available on the GHIN app, so I am sure once I get out and play this year that I will take advantage of the option to track/store my stats electronically and reference them after the fact.

Makes sense that it should auto calculate GIR. I have not used the GHIN app yet, as the course that had the men's association that I planned on joining closed, but I've never really heard good things about it. Just a score, putt, and FW checkbox should get all the traditional stats and it seems silly that they wouldn't figure that out.

You just enter it manually right now. I agree they should add it, but this is the first year for WHS so maybe they’re content it works.

Right now I use my shotscope watch for stat stuff, keep score on paper because I don’t trust the shot detection 100% (it always errs toward the lower score), and only enter a score when reporting rounds. It’s probably too much to expect, but it would be nice if the device (watch, or whatever a golfer happens to be using) and GHIN could interface somehow to streamline data entry.

I don’t use the advanced stats. So far this year I’ve only played four rounds on three courses and only one of the courses even allows me to enter hole-by-hole scores.

Golfshot will post it to your GHIN.

I post total score only.

I really don't care how many fairways I hit, I can birdie or par a hole from the rough. Number of putts?, Today, it could be 36, tomorrow it might be 24, and the following day it could be 40. I guess the only thing that would tell me is I'm a very inconsistent putter.

My gps app does all that . I manually enter as I score each hole. I’m not really interested in entering that info again for GHIN tracking

I’ll add it into my posted rounds then.

FWIW my post was just in general, not directed at anyone.

Is it worth the time to put in the stats to get this?

For me, sure, partly because I can enter the stats really quickly and I enjoy doing it. (That's why in my OP I made a suggestion regarding speeding that up with auto-GIR determination. Even lower barrier that way.)

That's interesting. Before I started using a Garmin S20 watch, and later switched to Shotscope watch, I used Golfshot app on my iPhone, at least I think that's what I was using. I liked the basic tracking that the app did, but didn't like having to constantly take my phone out of my pocket between shots though. Does Golfshot transfer the stats to GHIN too?

It would be nice if the handicap recording organizations could provide an interface with all of the various trackers/apps, watches, phones, etc. though. For example, after I edit my scores in the Shotscope web interface (or Game Golf, Arrcos, whatever), it would be cool if there were a submit to GHIN button that I could click.

    • Faster probably. No it isn’t. 50% of your time is a bad idea but I will get 9 GIR and shoot 70. 11 and 73 is pretty common.
    • @Shindig  - I totally agree with you. If someone is having 40 putts per round and chunks and skulls chips half the time, they need to solve those problems. But 50% of time NEGLECTING driving and iron play is no way to improve your golf long term. Just spend time working on those elements. The fact that a lot of high handicappers waste shots around the green does not mean that everyone has to "work on their  short game" half the time. And, as you said, 11 GIR is an indicator of 11 GIR, not much else a lot of the time. Throw in a couple of OBs, and balls in penalty areas and trees and you can expect a score anywhere between mid 70s and probably mid to high 80s, depending on the course. Not to mention are those GIRs really GIRs  - is it just 5 and 6 that were "close enough"? To say that 11 GIRs SHOULD  result in 73 is complete nonsense. My brother once had  a round of 75 with no one putts.  He rarely breaks 80. One stat does not imply a score, no matter how you interpret it.
    • Day 158.  This morning I hit a dozen full shots (usual routine and place) with my 6-iron.   This afternoon, I began work on quarantine day 12 (trail arm throwing) -- without actually throwing the club.  Still, I can feel how this is different, and I'm going to go back and forth with this and full swing for a bit.
    • Day 36 (01 Aug 21) - More work on swing tempo focusing on getting a consistent 3:1 tempo.
