Good Stat Tracking Software?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone use something like this?  I want something for my computer that I can enter in all my stats from my rounds and it can then tell me GIR, misses left, right, which clubs miss where, sand saves, etc.  I'm willing to spend some money on it if it gets any good recommendations.... what do you guys think?

Thanks!

Scorecard... I've checked out the demo and I love it... I haven't actually gotten around to buying a copy myself yet but I think I will soon... I'm to lazy to write down my stats during a round sometimes.

it seems like the program scorecard does a lot, but i'd hate to spend a lot of time messing around with an actual paper scorecard to prep the stats.  how do you add all these stats to your scorecard when playing?  i've searched around but all i am told is "buy the program and you'll find out".  is this some trick to get me to buy it before you tell me the "special sauce" to make it work?

Yeah. I use only two boxes. Or sometimes I use the free iPhone software.

You only track five stats:

  1. Score - you'd track that one anyway
  2. Fairway hit - you draw an arrow left, up, or right
  3. # Putts - 0, 1, 2, 3
  4. GIR/UD/SS - green in regulation or up and down or sand save
  5. Distance of first putt - a quick estimate's good

Takes 10 seconds to write it down. And you get 35+ stats out of it all.

Golf Digest has a free online program "Make Me Better" at http://golfdigestchallenge.com You print out a paper scorecard to track your stats on during the round then enter them later. Here's a look at the scorecard http://www.golfdigestchallenge.com/files/BRC_GDChallenge_2010.pdf

I'm not sure if it's incorrect to post this but oobgolf has a very nice stat tracker with spreadsheets that you post online, private or public. I do have scorecard paid for, but I find the oobgolf stat tracker better because there are no uploads to do you just fire up your page and post your round. Yes I like my stats online so I can see how bad I am from anywhere in the world

Anyone who keeps stats on their game should also count strokes lost because of (1) bad decisions: wrong shot, right shot but wrong club, etc., things that have nothing to do with technical skills, but with THINKING, and (2) not being mentally focused while making the shot. I believe if a golfer could eliminate these mistakes, their handicap would go down by at least a third, and without making one trip to the driving range.

thanks for the useful scorecard tips!

i had a system i kept, but all it would do is count FIR/GIR and # of putts.  the other systems mentioned here allows for more info to be kept easily.  i like it!

I want to use this for Uk courses that have no slope ratings. I know i cant be mega accurate as many factors come into play, just for the sake of estimation does anybody have a system for estimating these ratings from SSS. For instance my home course is par 72 and SSS 69. I know an average course slope is 113 so what would be a good under number to use as an estimate for this course?

Hi all,

Is there a piece of software available for keeping track of your golf scores which you can export data to another source i.e your website?

What software are you all currently using?

Lets discuss........

    • I haven't watched it, but I've read many of the comics when I was a kid. So, heightened other senses. . .Tradeoffs. Hmm, I wonder how much of that applies to golf?   Another topic for the healing lounge. Golf was insulted by a co-worker who doesn't know much about golf today. I told my co-worker that many of my partners think I can't hit far until I start hitting far on the course or range, because I look kind of dumpy. The real reason is that many have known me for years and knew me when I didn't drive this far on average, which actually only happened recently. Then he said "No golfer looks athletic, they all look out of shape. They're not athletes. You look more athletic than any of them." Then I told him about long drive, and he admitted watching some blurb on TV about that and stated "Yes, but that's not golf. Is it?" So, he agreed that long drivers look like athletes, while still stating that PGA Tour players don't look anything resembling athletes. You know what? I agreed with him, because it's kind of true. . . I was suddenly reminded of one of my recent post about "Fattest golfers on the PGA Tour." vs the "Fittest golfers on the PGA Tour."  Off the top of my head, only Rory, Sergio and Camillo. In recent pictures, Dustin looks like a twig. Tiger has skinny calves. Golf needs to heal from this mornings barrage of "We are not athletes." . . .
    • Make sure you try Ping. I think it's a really good product. I recently hit some of those at the store and wow, made my AP1's feel like an old boat car w/ AM radio and no air conditioning. If I ever get new irons I will definitely look at those Ping again. 
    • Thanks for your replies. I understand the points about provisional balls, and yes, if it is thought the ball is lost or OB, then hit again.   But there is always the issue of the ball that is hit well and yet is still lost. Not an issue usually for the wide open parkland courses were you can see every ball land, but take other courses such as UK links courses with lots of blind carries and running fast in summer with lots of wind. A different matter completely and not a rare problem. If a golfer hits a good solid straight drive up over a rising fairway to where it flattens out, they are not going to see it land. The wrong bounce, some wind and the ball’s in the rough out of sight from the tee. Are they really going to hit again? And again if that’s another straight drive? At a course I play regularly it’s like this with about 10 or so blind shots and the other day we’d booked a tee time only to turn up and find 4 groups still waiting on the first tee. Turned out there was a competition ahead and some of the groups had experienced ‘lost ball issues’ according to the starter. Welcome to the 5 hour round! I understand that changing the rule would be difficult, and it’s unfortunate that the governing bodies couldn’t come up with something around this to reduce the curse of slow play when they did their rules review. But hopefully some of the new rules, such as the ‘maximum score’ on each hole, will help. However, some clubs have introduced some local rules. One club in my area have a ‘no going back’ rule that applies to all play other than the most serious competitions. Encourages more use of provisional balls, but also uses the lateral hazard type rule I spoke of before.

    • Also, consider a graphite shaft for your 2iron if your budget allows. Doesn't have to be a iron shaft, per sea. 
    • Hi guys and gals! As of recently, I am in the market for a new set of irons and am looking for your help. In the past I have been hitting Callaway's XR irons that provide a lot of forgiveness but am now looking to make the transition to a club with a little less forgiveness and more precision. I am currently an 8 handicap. Any thoughts?
