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.

~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)

Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary ;-).  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling.

No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.

Since the beginning of May, I have hit 45.3% of greens in regulation [367/810].  Those GIR's converted to 10.9% or 40 birdies.  My current index is 8.3 and it typically varies from 9.5 to 7.5 over the course of a season.

Those numbers are better than the entire year as I play in almost all conditions from January to December and the stats get a bit thin playing on fuzzy, debris strewn, semi-frozen surfaces.

Using GameGolf like @iacas I have 31% GiR and 3% birdies which comes out to 9.6% conversion of GiR to birdie. Pretty bad :-(

 

Where are you guys finding GIR percentage? I can't find it. :8)

On the summary for you. Where is shows your GG handicap, average score, etc. Shows 27% GiR for you.

I really don't track stats, so a guesstimate...

I probably average 6-7 GIR per round and probably 2-3 birdies every 3 rounds or so.  So somewhere well under 15%, probably closer to 10%.

According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies.

13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.

So what does a Pro HI equate to? The possibility's are endless.

I don't know what you're asking. I'm about a +1 right now according to GAME GOLF. Pros don't keep handicap indexes.

+1, yes that is what I was curious about.

This has been frustrating for me. In my last say 5 rounds I've hit a solid number of GIR. Between 6 and 8 each round. I cannot seem to ever convert for birdie. The thing is, I feel like I'm putting very well. I'm always getting it super close to the hole. A tremendous drop in 3-putts. It's just never going in on the first putt. It's killing me. I seriously may have had 1 birdie in my last 5 rounds shooting mid to high eighties.

0% birdie conversion.  Even worse, I'm probably hovering a little under 50% for converting GIRs into pars.

GG says i'm a 19.5 HI.  Taking my entire summer into account, I'm about a 24.

Lifetime according to Game Golf, 8.3%. Last 10 rounds though is something like 1.8%; I only made 1 birdie and it was a 2-putt on a par 5. I've been hitting more GIR and not making birdies due to my putting.

I usually don't keep stats, but I would guess I'm around 10% with the 6-8 GIR's I normally hit and 1-ish birdie a round. But this weekend, the first day of play I made 4 birdies out of 9 GIR's, then 3 birdies on 7 GIR's and then 1 on 7 GIR's.  So that is about 34% (8 out of 23)
