Saturday Morning Golf Stat - 20 Index and Scratch, 40 Yards in the Rough
Listen now
Welcome to the "Saturday Morning Golf Stat" from the Hack it Out Golf Podcast. In today's episode, we begin by refreshing the difference between average and median, and then the question is about median proximity to the hole for highly skilled and higher handicap golfers from 40 yards in the rough. Lou's numbers alongside Mark and Greg's guesses set the table for an important discussion for how best to shave off strokes in your short game. 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.
