Putting Summary

Putting Summary

This summary view shows the percentage of holes that receive the depicted number of putts.

"Hole out" indicates that the ball was holed from any lie other than "Green".

Strokes Gained - Putting

This plot shows the trend of strokes gained / lost from putting by round.

Putts include all shots hit from a "Green" lie.

A simple example is if the average tour pro makes 50% of his / her putts from 8 ft, then they average 1.5 strokes. Therefore, every time you make an 8 ft putt, you gain 0.5 strokes. Conversely, missing the 8 ft putt implies losing0.5 strokes relative to the average tour pro.

Putting by Distance

This plot shows how many putts it takes to hole out from varying distance from the hole.

In general, as distance from the hole increases so does the average number of putts required to hole out. This plot will quickly show the distance(s) from the hole at which a player might focus in order to improve putting performance.

This plot shows the number of putts per hole and putts per green in regulation.

These are two traditional metrics that are used to show how many putts on average it takes a player to finish the hole. While useful, it can be misleading as the reason for a higher putts per GIR on any given round may be a result of not hitting the ball as close to the target with irons and not due to poor putting performance. This is why Strokes Gained Putting is a more fair judge of putting performance.

Putting Numbers

This plot shows the number of putts required to complete a round and the feet of putts made in a given round.

While these numbers do not necessarily correlate with better scores, they are interesting 'streak' statistics to try to see how few putts can be required to play 18 holes and how many feet of putt can be holed in a single round. These personal bests can be seen in the Player Records view.
