  1. What kind of stat tracking do you guys do/use. I've just got a game golf. I used to just have a rough idea of yardages but that was it, I didn't really track any stats. Did you find your game improved once you started tracking?

    It all depends on what you do with the stats. I keep track of basic stuff like Fairways hit, Greens in regulation, Number of putts, Sand Saves/Up and Down.

    The nice thing is it gives you an idea of what you can focus working on during practice sessions. Practice with a purpose can help you improve your game.
  3. I tried just writing down some stats, like on the scorecard I would write a 'f' if I hit fairway 'gir' and so on. But would find halfway round I would get bored of doing it and it took a bit of concentration away from my game. That's what lead me to get a game golf set, so that I can just play and then analyse it afterwards and after a while would have built up a good amount of stats that will point me in the right direction for what to work on

    I have always kept the basic stats FW, GIR, Putts Up/Dn. The one stat I added a few years ago was direction on my missed fairways. It has helped me learn where my typical miss is with driver.

    By knowing where I typically miss I can eliminate that other part of the fairway by knowing I'll miss more to the opposite side vs the other.

    Jack Nicklaus always said he never thought about missing to the left side of the fairway because his miss was mostly to the right. If you know that it is helpful for the mental side of golf.

    Many years ago I kept my stats on Team Titleist as they had a area called "My Game" that let you record rounds & stats. Gosh I miss that....

  5. That's a good thing to bear in mind, I tend to draw the ball but muy miss is a push to the right which doesn't help when starting the ball right-side of the fairway to bring it back. I will keep an eye on it and see what my percentage of miss shots are

    I have been using the scorecard feature in Golflogix and it's been wonderful. It not only keeps the basic stats such as Fairways, GIR, Putts but it allows you to enhance that with Fairway/greenside bunkers, Chips/Pitches, Penalties and even where your miss was on Putts and Tee shots. I learned quickly that 70% of my Putts missed short.
  7. Will have to have a look into that

    One stat I like to track for tee shots is if my tee shot allows for a shot at the green (meaning it is still in play and not obstructed or in a hazard). Even if a tee shot is not in the fairway does not necessarily mean it was a bad shot. For those who have used Decade Golf you learn that sometimes a missed fairway is because your tee shot was off a bit but also you were avoiding a potential hazard. So track your FIR and also your tee shot in play.

    I keep things simple. I keep track of my FIR, GIR and double bogey-free days.
