I'd like to see a column on the right with percentages of hit fairways/greens/putting average.

Anyone take these kinds of notes on their game?

My GPS/Scorecard app keeps track of it for me and syncs it with an online database at oobgolf.com.

I do keep stats.  Here's what I posted earlier for clubs...but I have added a new 5W to fill in the gap between the 4H and 3W and am hitting it in the 205 to 210 range.

D = 230

3W = 220

3H = 195

4H = 185

5I = 170

6I = 160

7I = 150

8I = 140

9I = 130

PW = 110

SW = 90

LW = 60

Here are my stats for 2013 to date from 27 rounds played.  Average score 85.  Fairways hit 70.2%  Missed left 13.9%, missed right 16%.  GIR - 34.4%  Putting Avg 1.92.

Absolutely, and you'll find that lots of guys on this forum do the same.

My numbers are similar to sjames above except I'm 5 yards longer. The most important point of all this is hitting a consistent distance everytime. I'm getting to the point where I can reliably hit my clubs certain yardages and get strategy into the mix.

I use the NG360 app. Only played 1 round this month but have improved dramatically. Last month I was at 55 percent driving 53% gir( or where I putted) 1.78 or something putts per green(including from off green) and average score of 80 I think If I were to play I would definantly shoot in the 70s with probably 65 percent fir 60 percent GIR And probably same putts

Dude, this isn't your personal golf thread, what does that have to do with how far you hit your clubs?

They were talking up above about stats I thought. Maybe not oops sorry

Gotcha. I just figured I'd tell you before Erik did. ;-)

If that's the case, quote someone who was talking about stats...that way it doesn't look like you're jumping in to talk about yourself again. :-P

I always INTEND to hit my driver 340 yards. It's usually about 100 yards short of that.

There with you, what I intend and what my mind thinks is never close to reality. :hmm:

But I am always happy with 225 to 240 streight or at least in the fairway.

Look up a guy called Gorilla James on youtube.

He is a very long hitter and his posts are crazy distances on simulators and on courses.

He also uploads vlogs when he plays with the same people and he frequently drives par 4s i.e 340 yard par 4 he drives onto the green!

The guys a monster literally he works out all the time and this shows if your born with height of 5'10 or over and put a lot of time into the game and at the gym the it becomes very easy

Why? What's the point?

If your answer is any variation of "to watch a guy who can hit the ball far!" then my response would be "So?" And what I mean by that is… what's anything Gorilla James does have to do with this thread, which is about how far YOU hit YOUR clubs (and not at all about how far Gorilla James hits his clubs, unless he's a member here)?

    • I think about 130, I have good hand eye coordination so improved quite quickly as I was a good Hockey player. 
    • Shot an 80 Saturday. This upcoming Wednesday would make a month since playing last. New job and change in the routine and golf has taken a back seat. I was streaky. Had some really good stretches and a couple mental breaks. Short game wasn’t good which is expected.   opened up double at one and a bogey at 2. No surprise there. 3 i blistered one off the tee and hit my wedge to 6 inches for a tap in. At 4 I blister another and hit another pretty good approach to 6 feet. Tried to Kevin Na the putt since I did think I made it. Stayed out on the high side tho. Still after a 2 putt par at 5 I’m 2 over after that awful start. Heard some really mediocre cursing while I was addressing my tee shot at 6. Was laughable that some guy yelled Jesus Christmas or something like that and I should have backed off. Ended up worm burning a short drive and hybrid layup to awkward yardage led to double at 6 then another double at 8 hurt. Ho hum par at 8 and 9 for a 6 over front: 3 doubles. I usually don’t make doubles. Seldom 3 in 9. Back was nothing spectacular: pars at 10-11. Bogeys at 12-13. Par at 14. 15-16 I was tired and could feel it. Still doesn’t excuse a 3 putt and then a bogey from a tee shot that left me 70 in. Pars at 17-18. There is some positive things to take from that round given the layoff I guess/
    • Day 49: Worked on priority piece, mostly slow rehearsals, and hit 6 balls with 7-iron. Also did short game COVID-19 day 6/7 drills. 
    • Things I learned on my first 18... If there's a group playing behind you and you feel like your rushing because of it, it's better to let them play through.  [After I did that, I landed my next 3 tee shots on the green (3 chances for birdie and 3 chances at par... missed all six shots 🤪). I need to work on my putting and chipping.  This is where I can really lower my score.
    • Got a lucky chip in on 14 - that's a new birdie! 😄👍 Four left. Of those, two are very gettable - 11 (390yd par 4) and 15 (160yd par-3).  The other two... hole 6 is a 420yd par-4 that finishes uphill and hole 13 is a 210yd par 3 that is wide (L-to-R) but thin (front-to-back). I usually struggle to hit the green on that one.
