    How are you keeping track of your game to know what you need to work on?  Fairways hit, Greens hit, Up&downs and # of putts.

    I keep my scorecards, noting Fairways and Greens hit, as well as -how- they were missed (right/left/short/long).  I also note my approach distance on the scorecard, so that I know, for that course, which shots to practice ahead of my next round there.  I track my driving distance and putts, as well.

    Once I get home, I enter my info into SkyGolf360, which calculates my shot tendencies, Fairways & Greens, and stats by course, etc.

    I understand that there are several "apps" that do this, as well, like TheGrint, GolfLogix, V1 Golf, GameGolf, etc.

    Hi James,

    I keep track of the following stats:

    - No. of Putts,

    - GIR (Greens Hit in Regulation);

    - FIR (Fairways Hit in Regulation);

    - Up & Downs;

    - Sand Saves.

    I find that if I track these stats over the season, I can rely on the data for good feedback in terms of tracking my progress, areas for practice/improvement, etc.

    Of course, the data is only going to be as good as the level of interpretation of the data -- so that is why I also track the following two stats: (GIR Missed - Distance) and (FIR Missed - Distance). I use these stats to track the distance that I miss by.

    For example, the FIR, if I miss by 1-2 yards, which is quite realistic if the fairways are narrow, etc. is not of concern for me as much as a miss by 20-30 yards because of a bad fade/slice, etc.

    The same will go for the GIR Misses ...tracking the distances missed by, allows me to better gauge the "level of miss" and potentially identify issues with my approach shots, etc.

    I see that the PGA Tour uses stats like yards gained, etc. but my understanding is that these stats are a "relative measurement" which requires the player to measure one's stats relative to the remainder of the field. As such, and if my understanding of the statistics is correct, then it really is not useful unless you have a "body" of stats to measure that against.

    If there are others here that know the PGA Stats better, I would appreciate their take on things.

    Thank you, D, I will start tracking GIR & FIR Distance Missed. You are obviously right that a missed F or G by 3 yards tells a much different story than 15-20 yards...and points to a different thing to work on.

    I keep track of fairways hit along with which direction the misses are, GIR's, and number of putts.  While I input the info here on the Titleist site, I also use the swoosh Golf 360 app.  It tracks all of your percentages and breaks everything down during the round plus they have all the courses score cards loaded on it.  I really wish Titleist would offer something as comprehensive.

    I use a game golf device it does a great job everything from Club performance, fairways hit / missed, greens hit / misses, putts per hole, scrambling %, sand saves, strokes gained / loss. I got it 2 years ago and it has enlighted me greatly as to areas I need to work on. Best of Luck

    Hi James, p/p I've attached some photo images of the "Advanced Scorecard" that used to be on Team Titleist before. It has nearly all of the statistic tracking that has been discussed already. p/p I hope this might be helpful, p/p D.

    Those would be a great tool if they were still available, as well as the site to track the stats.

    The way I track my stats, I use Arccos gold, the sensor do most of the work for me and track every shot.
    Also, they have a dashboard where you can see and work with those stats.
    You get the shot distance, including the longest shortest and averages
    You can track things such as the shot Dispersion
    Strokes gained or lost
    Handicap for a specific area, Driving, approach, chipping, Sand and putting. and a trend round by round.
    I use mostly because learning my game is a way to improve my game.
    Every hole you will get the following
    Par
    Score
    Driving
    Fairways
    GIR
    Chip/Down
    First putt Distance
    Total Putts
    Strokes gained
    and the rating per club used.
    Bellow is the screens shot of what you can see on one of my better 9 holes last year
    It is obvious that my biggest miss was the putter on that round and what I am working on this offseason
    I can also get detailed information such as the actual club analytics, PW shown, for the last 25 shots with it, most misses were short of the target. mostly due to hitting it fat
    otherwise, the other misses are to the right.
    To me, it has been the best method to keep track of my game

    "Golfer Stats Pro" is a great app, tracks more than you can imagine. I also keep a journal, noting: Round #, date, course, tees, cost, fwys, gir, front 9+ back9 scores and putts. Plus comments on weather, wind, course conditions and anything else. Very useful when considering whether to return, track tendencies, commute time, etc.

    Thanks for all the info. I will be keeping track of my game a lot more this year.
  12. Tracking of stats would most likely help the golfer understand where practice may be needed. Has anyone thought of tracking their stance, grip, swing, and follow through to achieve a desired flight path or trajectory? Feel is extremely important. A record of mechanics may also be of value to remind us of our own personal golf swing when feel inevitably fails us. I carry cards to remind me of everything from the driver through the putter.

    I use a Garmin Approach S60 it gives me all the info I need
    GPS of each hole
    Club used
    Distance to hole showing all hazards
    Distance for each club hit
    Direction of ball hit
    Fairways hit
    Greens in Regulation
    How many Putts
    Scorecards
    Performance Stats
    Swing Tempo
    View of each hole played
    CT 10 club tracking system ( optional extra )
    TruSwing ( optional extra )

    It's brilliant
  15. I used to carry a second scorecard and put the stats into that then input that to Xcel, I recently moved back to Game Golf as it's done automatically. Handy to have GIR FIR Putts Scrambling etc, tagging is a pain though.

    I don't care about the distance for clubs as I find Game Golf is all over the place, I play alot of Links Golf in windy Ireland so Game Golf is pointless for distance accuracy.

    This is how I keep track of mine. I then keep the scorecards in a shoe box so I can review selected periods for changes in stats and work on those areas that need improvement.

    I currently use GameGolf, and the stats it puts out are incredible. It's very informative on where I tend to miss.

    For the last two season I’ve been using Arccos 360,
    Its a fantastic set up.
    Sensors in the end of each club, tracking every shot controlled via an app in my phone.

    Night times I’ve seen me sitting going over my round seeing where I went wrong or where I could save / pick up a shot the next time I play that course.
    You can quite easily get carried away and turn yourself into a stats guru rather than playing the game and having fun lol
  20. I have been using The Grint to track all of my stats for a few years now and I love it. I use the mobile app to record scores, fairways, putts etc... they also track your handicap too and revise every 15 days I believe. You can also use The Grint on your PC.

    Titleist used to have a STATS area on this site. They have since done away with it, which is a huge loss to all of us. Perhaps they could bring it back. It helps tremendously. Especially with fittings. I brought my stats to Dino at TPI and he was very impressed. He and I could narrow down where I needed work and dial me in faster and more precise with all the stats.

    Since we lost that great resource here on Team Titleist, I created my own spreadsheets on EXCEL. The monthly numbers then automatically inputted into a year-end summary. Pixs below.

  23. I'm a big fan of the The Grint. On course yardages (that are typically within a yard or two of pricey rangefinders), tracking of various stats, included handicap.
  24. +1 for The Grint. When I'm being studious, I'll track score, putts, penalties (e.g., OB), fairway misses (w/ side), and sand saves. The nice thing about The Grint (and many other tracking 'apps') is that they compute other statistics automatically (e.g., GIR, scrambling). It's a huge plus being able to maintain a USGA compliant handicap via a virtual club.

    I have a small tablet I get at Golf Headquarters called "G Stats" Golf Statics System that has columns for FW, GIR, Putts, Score, Par Score. Then you can tally each 9 and then a final amount after 18. It cost $1.99 and has 20-25 sheets. Well worth the price fits in your back pocket. I use one and attach it to my scorecard after every round then I input my numbers on a spreadsheet I have on my computer. I have a total sheet and individual course sheet. I also track up/downs on that sheet as well.

    I right L or R for misses of fairways. I might add F for fade or D for Draw, P for pull. I use SH, RT, LT, LG for missed greens. Short, Right, Left, Long.

    Where it doesn't account for is I play some holes that have a dogleg you can go through, yes its a miss but it's also a great drive. I have 2 that we always cut the dogleg because the trouble is minimal to the left and it cuts 95yds off the hole those are misses most rounds too.. but I'll except that for the chance at reaching the green in 2.

    Good Luck and score well,
