PGA tour putting stats

Recommended Posts

Was looking at PGA putting stats and determined that the average PGA tour pro was more likely to one putt than two putt from inside 8 feet. And average PGA tour pro more likely to 3 putt when putting greater than 40 feet Can anyone verify these estimations? Or extrapolate something different?

Anything outside of 33' they're more likely to three-putt than one-putt.

50% is at eight feet, yes, so inside that they're gonna one-putt more than they two-putt (and three-putt almost never).

40 feet more likely to three-putt than two-putt or one-putt? That isn't likely to be right.

Probably more likely to three-putt than one-putt, eh (but two-putt more often than either)?

In your opinion (or to your knowledge, since I know you've played with a lot of situational stats) is there a length at which 3-putting becomes more likely than 2 putting?  Or is it too dependent on all of the other factors like green speed, amount of slope, etc.

Such a distance would be quite long. If you think about it, it would have to be so long that your average second putt was outside of eight feet.

How did you determine this? The eight foot we agree on makeake one putt distance but why 33" for three putts?

I got 40 feet from this table

Ernie Els is ranked 90th, right at the middle.

and he more likely  to 3 putt when 40' 9" away.

so that's where i got 40 feet.

The range from the best three putt player to the worst three putt player is from  50 feet to 30 feet.

Either way, these guys are all pretty good putters.  Specially those that have won tournaments including majors.  That means at one time they had a very hot flat stick.

Did you know… the average golfer isn't too much worse a putter than PGA Tour players?

I know.  Just noticed that after I clicked on the tour stats that someone posted.  Its just those that win that specific week are all putting better than most for that week.  I am going to have to start keeping track of my putting stats now, wonder how far I'm off.  I always seem to get pissed if I miss a few 6-8 footers in a round.

    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.  
    • This was sort of pioneered by Ray Ortiz formerly of Orlimar Golf who now is at Bobby Jones. Long ago he introduced his low profile, Tri-Metal Miraged driver and fairway metals. They took a little getting used to, but really performed once you got it down. Excellent for getting of the rough.  Orlimar still exists under new owners, but no where's near the same as it was. I am a TE convert obviously, only a few clubs to go to have a 100% set, but probably will not go with their wedges.
