I know Putts/Round isn't a great stat, but how much better is Putts/GIR? On its own, it doesn't seem like it really amounts to much. If your first putt length tends to be higher, you're going to have a higher P/GIR than if it was shorter. You can't really tell by looking at it whether you need to work on your putting or you're just hitting the green too far away from the pin. I started thinking about this today and worked it out over my last 10 rounds, my P/GIR is 2.18 vs P/R of 1.92. I'm not sure that tells me much about anything. So what would be the point of tracking it, or what other states are needed to make it better? Do you need to average out your first putt lengths and factor that in? Then you're basically getting an average of X strokes taken from Y distance, which seems like if I'm going to do that, I might as well figure out the rest of my make % by distance data. Just trying to decide if any of this stuff is worth looking into, what do you guys think?
Does anyone have any experience with the Pitchfix Twister 2.0? I realized the other day that I fix a lot of pitch marks: mine, my play partners', players in groups ahead of me, etc. (This one group must have been pretty good because there were a lot of fresh pitch marks on the green, I'm guessing they all accidentally left their repair tools in their cars ) Anyway, I was thinking maybe I should upgrade my repair tool to something better. I currently use one of those souvenir ones with the fatter tines that I remember reading somewhere aren't the best for the turf. This one seems good and easy to use, but what do you do if you pop a divot out of the green with your pitch mark? You can't pull up on bare soil to repair a green.
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.
