Point being that over a decent sample size that shot was the right play and I can't let it affect my next approach shot

This is a really important thing to learn.  A bad result can come from a good swing combined with a good decision, its pretty rare but it definitely does happen.  Keep making good decisions, keep making good shots, and scores will in general be pretty good.

Is this because your shot data shows you coming up short more than long?  To out other low handicap forum members, same question?  I'm curious if "shorty issue" is the predominant pattern amongst the majority of players across all handicaps.

So here are my stats from last year:

and this year

I've been focusing pretty hard on hitting enough club this year, and it's worked out well so far.  Like @DaveP043 and @THEZIPR23 have said, I just commit to hitting the ball over the green if I hit a really good shot.  What surprised me is that I've actually dropped my long misses.  Not sure how I managed that.

The idea of GI clubs being more flyer-prone is interesting.  But I'd pin a fair amount of the variability on the audience.  I know how badly I miss short and long.

8.5% increase in GIR is enormous!! Have you seen scores come down drastically?

Well, I'm down about 1.5 on my index (6.9 to 5.4 right now), and hitting 8.5% more greens means I'm hitting

...

1.5 more greens.  So I guess that's about right.

I started doing this recently, taking a 9 iron and putting a nice smooth move on it instead of ripping a PW...my GIR has gone up about 30%

I stayed with the new game plan on Monday and it continues to work.  On the #17 last par 3, I was kind of torn about doing so because the wind was behind us.  But, I stuck with the plan and hit the 7i which land just past flag and right.  For grins, I grabbed my 8i (club I usually hit on this hole) and also made a solid strike.  The ball flight looked even better and we both thought it was going to drop straight on the hole 😍.  But nope... just barely past the front apron and being very sloped there back to the lake, rolled back off down towards the water.

We need to remember the "windage" recipe... I was thinking the tailwind would make it carry way long.
