Yeah it might be a meaningless stat to some, but I thought it was interesting that the Aimpoint guy actually had a stat. Hence the question. It's golf, so it's fun for me to talk about any of this stuff. Im now wondering where he got his info from? Didn't ask me. Lol
Since you have a Sky Trak simulator, I would hit shots and get an idea what is going on. I’m not sure of the features, but if you can get club head path and orientation at impact, it might give you the reason why you are going left and right.
Club head speed, launch angle, etc. might help to determine if your distances are where they should be or there is something else that is impacting getting the most from each shot.
This isn’t a fix for being inconsistent, but it is something you might want to discuss with a pro going into lessons.
What has it got to do with being a "single digit" handicapper? I am sure I could introduce you to 20 markers who are better than what you call a "single digit" handicapper.
Different players use different clubs that suit them. Handicap is irrelevant.
A 21 degree club used by a 30 marker might be perfect for a genuine 8 marker. It all depends.
Vijay Singh used a 7 wood. Some 25 handicappers woul laugh at a 27 handicapper using one. Because they are ignorant.
You seem to have a peculiar focus on low handicaps with regard to an unrelated topic. My experience is that a genuine 3 handicapper is not asking such a vague question to people he's never met or seen hit a golf ball.
I'd be using what suited YOU, not what others use based on their (often mythical) handicaps.
