~40% over my last two rounds, but that's an absurd anomaly. ;). I set a record high with 5 birdies two rounds ago (on 11 GIR) and I made one birdie last round on only 3 GIR because I putted from the fringe about 5 or 6 times.
Real answer has to be about 15% or something, I imagine. I probably average 7-8 GIR, and 1-ish birdie per round. (Handicap is 4.1 right now)
Shot an 84, and an 87, today which is pretty good considering last night's (late) party activities. It's been a while since I golfed with a hangover. Finished 5th out of 10 in our little gathering. Won a golf shirt that has "Golf Lives Matter" on the back. Another round tomorrow I suppose.
What is your birdie conversion rate from GIR position? and your HI? This is an informal survey of how golfers with different skill level convert their GIRs to birdies.
I have HI of about 15 and convert 8% of GIR putts into birdies.
+3 39. 3 birdies, 2 pars, 2 bogies, 2 double bogies. Weird nine, great ball striking, a couple holes where I got myself into slightly iffy situations around the green and my short game just didn't pick me up today. Played the first 6 holes at -1 before going double (3 putt after a very poor chip [tried a low 8 iron under a greenside tree and my lack of experience executing the shot showed as I almost rolled it through the green]), par (par 3), double (3 putt after a poor sand shot...this was a long putt, but it was really just poor putting).
Of course on seven I shouldn't have been in the position I was in in the first place. It was a lie that screamed pull and I chose to ignore my instinct and pulled it right under the tree beside the green.
i posted earlier that i felt as if my game was much improved, but my handicap hadn't dropped significantly. well after my round today, my index dropped to an all-time low of 3.9. i started the year as a 7.2 index, so I guess the results are starting to come!
