Weird stat… "Inside 100 yards"? How many players were tested? How many shots?

Inside 100 yards could have huge fluctuations if one group hit from an average of 74 yards while another group from 62 yards, on average.

Here's to hoping the numbers are "hundreds of golfers, thousands of shots" for each segment.

I agree... seems like too large of a range.    When I think of getting "up and down" - it's more pitching and chipping for me, from say 40 yards and in.    100 yards involves full shots, which doesn't compute in terms of getting up and down...

Furthermore ... from say 80-100yds, getting up and down means getting a birdie.    For most of us, getting it on the green from that distance is the goal and then 2 putting for par.    Thinking about getting "Up and Down" should be from 40-50 yds and in ... the whole premise of this involving full wedge shots is flawed IMHO

Depends upon the length of the course, and the conditions.

I don't know… why?

What is the percentage of up and down from just off the green....from rough vs. from fairway?

I'm a 16 handicap, I'm happy with a chip and two putt...
