  1. For the first time in a loooong time, I have a GHIN number (I was disappointed my old number was not still available. I still remember it, and it was only six digits). Anyway, I'm entering hole-by-hole scores with the "advanced stats." Now, let's be real: calling them that is a bit silly, as it's just fairways, greens, and putts. Counting stats. But still, it's something. One suggestion I'm passing up the flagpole: auto-select the GIR stat. Pre-select the checkbox for a GIR if the player gets: An albatross or eagle. A birdie with one putt. A par with two putts.
  2. 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
  3. 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 contained in the since-deleted Tweet is: 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
  4. 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 w
  5. If you have GHIN, or a handicapping service that tracks your rounds, post below: 1. How many rounds you played in 2017 2. What was your average score 3. Your high and low rounds. Here is mine on the very bottom. (Just now getting used to the new Blue color used by Florida State Golf Association. Arkansas was green for me until yesterday.
  6. I started tracking my Strokes Gained in a spreadsheet for my past four rounds and here are my averages (I was a 6 hcp, now up to a 9): Tee: -3.19 Approach: -7.06 Short: -0.93 Putting: -1.67 (I've been missing 3-6 footers lately) Recover: -0.94 Wow. I knew my ball striking was bad, but not this bad. Yesterday I hit two tee balls OB, plus chunked an iron off the tee on a par 3. Wow. I guess the old adage "the best way to improve is to work on your short game" doesn't really apply to me. I've taken numerous lessons from different coaches trying to improve, but seem
  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. The new tracker dubbed Game Golf LIVE gets its name from the new smartphone paired ap
  8. I've written up an analysis of @Slowcelica's stats analysis- the data was from late last season. Here's the link: https://thesandtrap.com/b/the_numbers_game/deep_dive_analysis_of_slowcelicas_golf_game As is the case with @Fairway_CY's analysis, the intent is to take members who are near bogey golf and sincerely looking to shave a significant number of strokes over the next season or two. When the member achieves that goal, perhaps we can look back and see more definitively where they improved. The articles mostly document where I think they can improve, but hey- I'm really just hop
  9. From 110 yards out, how many strokes does it take the average scratch golfer to hole out? How about the average PGA Tour player? How close do they hit the first shot in each case? From 35 feet away, how many putts does the average scratch golfer take? The average PGA Tour player? What percentage of the time do they hole the putt? This speaks to Separation Value®, and it speaks to the proper expectations a golfer should have, and it speaks to your mindset and approach on the golf course. I've asked players - average players who aren't necessarily super tuned in to the world of st
  10. Hi all, Just wondering how people go about tracking the stats from golf rounds and practice sessions. I count how many shots over par I am on each hole, and then make a note of the main reason why I went over par, ie bad drive, bad short putt, bad mid iron. When I get home I put it all on a spreadsheet and which ever category cost me the most shots is what I work on until my next games. Does anyone else a system they like to work with ?
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. When I record my scores on ghin.com, I use the hole-by-hole and advanced scoring. I like reading the Average/Similar Golfers report. But what I'd really like to see is how I compare to the next lower handicap group. I have two questions: 1. If you work at GHIN, can you put me in touch with your web app team so I can make a suggestion? I can't find a way to do that on the site. 2. If you're between a 5.6 and 6.6 index and use advanced scoring, would you mind posting your Average/Similar Golfers numbers so I can do the comparison myself? Thanks
  14. To know my weeknesses i record my stats with a stroke gained approach. After 15 rounds i can see clear that i was bad with long irons and short irons. But what was rare is that my average spected score of my mid irons (7.8.9) where better than my short irons (P,W,G). Avg Wedges: 2,92 Avg Short Irons: 3,25 Avg Mid Irons: 3,21 Avg Long Irons: 3,54 I agree the fact that closer is better but in my case beetween a 7 iron and a Gap wedges there practically no different, moreover it´s better to have a mid iron in hand than a short iron. I know i have to work to improve my short i
  15. Hello! Wanted to see about getting recommendations about applications out there to connect with players and share stats, achievements, possibly sign up for events. Not sure what is out there besides the forums.
  16. 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'
  17. @Fairway_CY was brave enough to be a guinea pig for an idea to analyze his game, with the goal being that we amateurs can combine aspects of GAME GOLF (GG) and Lowest Score Wins (LSW) to map out a course for better golf. Here was the first effort: https://thesandtrap.com/b/the_numbers_game/deep_dive_analysis_cy Keep in mind, I'm not a trained statistician (or in any way connected to a profession related to golf!), so the idea is to see how we laymen can make sense of our own games, using tools at our disposal. Even better when those tools (GG/LSW) are ones that are popular here on TS
  18. I created the table below based on how the PGA Tour calculates Strokes Gained putting, using my most recent round. For some reason, GameGolf is telling my my Strokes Gained (or lost) was -4.62 strokes for this round against a scratch golfer. Seems quite a bit off considering the actual calculation is -3.02 against the PGA Tour Average. That's over a 1.5 stroke difference. I don't know that I would take the time to do this for every round I play, but it seems that GG is quite a bit off when I spot checked a few more rounds.
  19. I've been Playing Golf for: off and on 4 years, never actually started to play until last year My current handicap index or average score is: 85.12/72, 84.11/71, 82.93/70 My typical ball flight is: straight-draw with my irons, fade with my hybrid, fade-slice with my driver The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Fixing my driver above all, getting more distance, being more consistent on eliminating miss hits (usually tops) Videos: 5 Iron- Back View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq_bZT4GGTw Info: The ball was a little pulled to the left and had a nic
  20. 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
  21. 2016 TST Partner GAME GOLF has a new ad (above). It replaces some of their more recent ads, and I had the pleasure of seeing it on TV earlier today. What do you think? Also, for a limited time (through the end of April) for U.S. residents GAME GOLF Live is $50 off! The reduced price will already be included in the cart after you add it to your cart. This special price should also be availaable at all retail outlets in the U.S. P.S. Scottish people are tough to understand. I've told people the story of my first experience upon landing in Scotland… trying to figure out what in th
  22. This has got to be the place to ask - What everyone's favorite apps? Right now my favorites are V1 for swing analysis and Skydroid for GPS. I'm on the Android system. I'd like to find a stats app giving me similar info as the Strokes Gained stuff. I've contemplated GolfShot and would welcome comments from users. Am interested in the Lowest Score Wins app, but can't seem to find it. Might just go with the Game Golf program but the Federal Return just cramped my golf funds. Thoughts?
  23. My Edel putter story: Short version: Switching to an Edel putter saved me an average of 1.6 putts per round, based on a comparison of 10 years of hole by hole data, all taken from league play at my home course. Best golf money I have ever spent. Long version: For Christmas 2014, my marvellous wife bought me an Edel Putter. My fitting was with Ryan at The Golf Lab in Toronto. Of note: instead of the mirror test, they do the whole thing using a SAM putt lab...which is brilliant. Super accurate, and I got to go home with some fancy charts and graphs showing the difference between my original
