  1. I'm not sure if this is the right forum so if it's not, my apologies. I was reading the GHIN Advanced Stats thread and unless I'm mistaken, GameGolf keeps the same stats. Anyway, I've been playing around with the insight feature and wondered for those who have GameGolf how they utilize it. I just started playing around with it and use the Strokes Gained feature to see my rounds against scratch golfers, my last round vs. last 3 rounds, and my last round against what GG says is my HC. I was just curious who else uses this feature and what they've found the best way to use it is to im
  2. My buddy Lou shared earlier today a thing we've talked about the past few weeks re: short-siding yourself on the PGA Tour. The image: In chart form: At first glance this flies a bit in the face of the idea that "being closer is better," but that really only holds if you insist on taking this literally and completely disregarding the shades of grey. We've never said that being buried in a deep bunker 15 yards from the flag is better than having a 60-foot putt (or even a chip from off the green). And clearly, short-siding yourself on the PGA Tour can present s
  3. A little help? I have heard a statistic over the years but never found a source: 85% of all missed putts are short. When I look at PGA stats, I see they track the number of putts, but not whether they were short (or broke below the hole) or long past the hole. Is anyone familiar with a study that has been done on this? Thanks
  4. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/iacas/round/1074402 The other day I had a round with 18 straight pars. I thought I might birdie the 10th (and a hole or two before that, perhaps), but after about the 12th hole I was really almost more interested in getting what I think is my third 18-par round instead of shooting 71 or 70… So, how many 18-par rounds have you ever had? Or, what is the highest number of pars you've had in a round?
  5. The other day I played a competition where Stableford scores are involved. What I try to figure out is the probability of our Stableford scores as a team. We played an Interclub competition, where the best 8 scores out of 12 players are added. That becomes the team result. This is the way they play Interclub competition in Spain (Andalusia). I am under the impression that (trying not to be too harsh) in my surroundings there is a more then average amount of sandbaggers. But I miss the statistics to build my case. If you score 36 Stableford points, that is equivalent to play to your
  6. https://www.pgatour.com/stats/stat.02438.2017.html. Below is a screenshot of 2017 leaders. Not exactly the "who's who" of 2017. These guys had over 85% of their drives classified as "good." The worst on tour had somewhere shy of 80%. When you compare that list to money leaders and to Strokes Gained/Tee to Green, you see very little similarity. See spoiler below for 2017. Why does this "Good Drive" statistic do so poorly in predicting overall success? Why doesn't it correlate much with Strokes Gained- Tee to Green? Those two lists in the spoiler above have pretty good
  7. Looks like there's a new Game Golf system coming out that finally gives live feedback on your round, as many, myself included always wanted. I wonder how this will affect the free tagging feature of the app. I suspect that will shift to a for-pay format. http://www.wareable.com/golf/new-game-golf-live-adds-real-time-smartphone-insights-for-your-round-1854 New Game Golf LIVE adds real time smartphone insights for your round Game Golf, the round tracking wearable, has been updated to add a host of new features.

  8. Somewhat recently GAME GOLF changed up the info you see when you click "Insights." http://www.gamegolf.com/insights What used to be the old view: Now requires you to click "View Insights." Instead you see a view like this: This is a little confusing at first, but here's your quickie guide to how this works: This is where you set up your comparison. You can compare yourself to yourself or to other golfers, like scratch golfers or 15 handicappers. You can compare your last round, your last 5, 10, etc. You can narrow it down to a date range, and do all sorts of
  9. GAME Golf has unveiled the new Strokes Gained feature on their site. You can read more about it here: https://gamegolf.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2198476. But basically… My stats… My Smart Tips… A few very quick comments: I'm a bit of an odd case. I wonder if I have been marking my short game shots as being farther from the hole than they are (I edit most holes after each round).* I'm -4 in the last 10 rounds on some courses that aren't exactly "easy." So that's good. I only have one shot from
  10. As @david_wedzik and I begin more formally working with GAME GOLF, I'm curious what stats golfers might like to see exposed that aren't already. By "stats" I don't necessarily mean a statistic alone, either - I mean a view of the data that would be helpful in analyzing your game. If it helps you, imagine that the stats available now are free, and the rest will be available with an inexpensive subscription. Dave and I have a list in mind already, but perhaps there are some other decent stats that I'm overlooking. I won't share much from my list (it would give away too much), but here'
  11. https://www.mygolfspy.com/mygolfspy-labs-the-arccos-putting-study/ Take a look at that. Let's use this topic to document the many, many ways that study is horribly misleading and/or downright horrible. For example, the very first chart. On the chart, you can see that "better than scratch" (BTS) golfers (the +5 to 1 handicap golfers - only the +5 to +1s are "better than scratch," but on the average, they all are, so we'll keep that name) three-putt slightly more often than they one-putt. This means that they take more than 36 putts per 18 holes. Huh? Look at the 10-15 h

  13. I've written before about how golfers don't seem to understand losing or gaining partial shots. We can't ever hit a shot that counts as only half or three tenths of a shot, after all. A missed five-foot putt counts the same as a drive we pure 285 down the middle. So, I'd like to take a few minutes here to cover partial shots and work our way toward "strokes gained" or lost as it applies to golfers of all levels - including you. The simplest way of looking at strokes gained and partial shots is with putting. From one inch away, every golfer in the world is expected to take 1.0 strokes
