Saturday Morning Golf Stat - Scratch Golfer, Shots After GIR from 125 FW
Listen now
Welcome to the "Saturday Morning Golf Stat" from the Hack it Out Golf Podcast. In this episode, Lou has chosen a stat that highlights the enormous importance of hitting greens. Suppose a scratch golfer is in the fairway, 125 from the pin. What's the expected difference in his scoring when he hits the green versus missing the green? Mark and Greg register their guesses, and then talk about ways to pursue a strategy on the course that maximizes greens hit. Each of these will be a mini-episode (10-15 minutes long) about an interesting golf stat. We will discuss what you can learn, and most importantly, how you can apply this on the golf course to lower your scores and lower your handicap. Listen on your drive to the golf course or over your Saturday morning coffee! Data is sourced from Arccos Golf.
