  5. Played 18 early this morning. My focus was on trying to hit as many GIR as possible. My goal was 9/18 or 50%. Below is my scorecard via TheGrint. Some notes from the round... • Had three 3 putts on the front 9. Each one was from 30-35’ first putt. My speed was off early but I settled down on the back. •Still hit 4 balls into hazards. 2 were tee shots with a hybrid left and driver right. The other two were on the same hole where a hazard runs parallel to fairway with green opposite side and I dunked a 6 iron short then wedge short into hazard. •I really focused more with my approach shots on hitting the green instead of thinking about my swing (which I feel like I’ve been doing a lot) and it seemed to work. Still that’s 7 throw away shots with 4 hazards and 3 3 putts. Got to get better. Feedback welcome. Thanks guys.
  6. Agreed. TheGrint has me at 14% left, 19% right, 8% long and 33% short. Perhaps swallowing a little ego with the iron game is an easy first step.
  7. True but I think that’s also a function of missing 13 greens per 18. You get more one putts that way.
  8. Yes. I think Grint had me at 5.6 per 18. I think that's also the reason my putts per 18 was under the average for an 8 handicap. This was an interesting read I found from mygolfspy back in 2016. https://mygolfspy.com/2016-report-overall-golfer-performance-by-handicap/ I think I'll discuss this with my local teaching pro and see if he thinks it's a management issue or swing issue. I'd still like to get that scrambling percentage up as well. Maybe attack it on both ends. Again. Thanks for the feedback guys.
  9. The way I understand TheGrint stats. Penalty shots count 2 for each ball out of bounds and one for hazard shots. So it’s like losing one ball a round and dunking two. Which isn’t too crazy I think but I agree the numbers do add up quickly that way. And about the tee shots, I do typically hit hybrids off tight tee boxes and on short holes where driver isn’t needed. I’m just looking for advice from all so feel free to give solid feedback. Thanks guys.
  10. I've been using TheGrint app on my iPhone for well over a year and today I decided to delve into my stats over the past 20 rounds to decipher where I should focus my practice sessions and golf lessons in the future. About me: 35, 5'9", 185 lbs. I hover between a 7 and 8 handicap. I have about 110-115 mph swing speed with a driver (using a Trackman with my local teaching pro). I used to play college baseball so I have tons of bad baseball swing habits that I've been working out for years. TheGrint keeps a wealth of stats that I want to break down here and get opinions on what might be the best way for me to reach the sub 5 handicap range. Below is my stats over the past 20 rounds (about 10 months). Scoring Handicap- 8.0 Avg. Score- 83.5 Putting Stats Putts per round- 31.1 Putts per hole following GIR- 2.0 Putts per hole following Non-GIR-1.6 1 putts per round- 5.3 Driving Accuracy Fairway Hit- 40% Left- 27% Right- 28% Greens in Regulation Total Gir- 30% Par 3's- 26% Par 4's- 26% Par 5's- 47% Iron Accuracy (on par 3's) Gir-23% Under 125 yards - No data 125 to 150 yards- 40% 150 to 175 yards- 26% 175 to 200 yards- 0% over 200 yards- 20% Penalties Total Penalties per round- 5.8 OoB- 2.6 Hazard- 2.3 Scrambling Par Saves- 41% Sand Saves- 27% Bogey Saves- 21% Putts per hole after Sand- 1.7 Putts per hole on Par Save- 1.6 Putts per hole on Bogey Save- 1.7 My initial thoughts were that the biggest part of my game that could use improvement would be my short game around the greens and then making putts inside of 8'. With the logic that most my strokes would be saved if my shots that miss the green could be hit closer and then the putt converted. However, after looking at the poor ball striking stats of GIR and penalties per round. I almost feel like lowering my shots hit into trouble and increasing my GIR would correlate to better numbers. Ideally, I'd have plenty of time to work on both but with a toddler to chase around I have limited practice time. I'm open to any thoughts or ideas as to what would be the best way to lower that 8 to a 5. Thanks Spies.

    I was actually fortunate enough to play 27 holes there a few weeks ago. What an incredible place. It's about an hour and half a drive but worth every minute. The reviews I had read compared it to Augusta National (which I have to admit I laughed at until I played a few greens.) The greens are what make this track a must play. I've never seen greens with this much undulation. The landing areas and slopes around the green make you need a complete arsenal of short game shots. My exact quote was it made me realize how "amateur and inadequate my short game is." If you live close enough you won't regret the trip. The manager did say they have plans to make it a private course so get your rounds in asap.
