    I don't know what other guys do, but I like to track my scores, fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts. Before GPS, I used to do it manually on the scorecard, now with my Garmin I can just sync my watch with my computer. Another stat I like to keep in number of birdies. I don't keep it as a function of rounds played, but rather straight up. So 3 years ago, I made 154 birdies. I have not been that close before or since. And to be truthful, I feel I am putting now better than ever. This year, one week into September I am sitting at 88. So a realistic number this year will be 120 or so. Making it to 100 is a big deal for me. Just wondering what other people track?

    Great to hear you are making so many birdies !!!
    I use my Garmin G6 to track all my scores and your post prompted me to download my stats and have a look at the numbers. The key for me has been GIR and Putts per Round. I have currently been managing an average of 51% of Greens in Regulation with an overall average of 1.9 Putts per hole.
    This is actually a great improvement as three years ago I was averaging over 2 putts per hole and my Greens in Regulation has also improved. My index has dropped significantly sine I had my meltdown and subsequently rebuilt my swing. I went from a 9.3 index to a 4.6 so I look forward to reviewing my stats relative to GIR and PPH as the season winds down specific to my Post Meltdown Period :)

    Wow, that is a big drop in index.
    I average 35% GIR, and around 1.65 putts per hole.
    Another number I track is 1 pt for GIR, and 1 pt for one putt. Subtract one for double bogeys and 3 putts. The trick is to get as close to 18 as possible. One putt birdies add 2, chip in birdies add 2.
    I am not hitting as many greens this year, as I am playing more often from further back tees, but my putts per hole has gone down. Scoring is about the same. Index has gone up with Golf Canada changing the ratings.
