It’s no coincidence that the world’s best players are the best at tracking stats.
Every golfer regardless of ability has kept stats on their game. At the most basic level playing for a score is considered the most macro stat you can measure. While score will indicate overall performance it will not give any clues as to what your strengths and weaknesses are.
Measuring stats like fairways hit, greens in regulation, scrambling, and total putts per round seem like the next best thing but are actually misleading and harmful to your game. Focusing on worthless statistics is not just a waste of time, it could also mean that you spend your time working on the wrong aspects of your game, attempting to fix problems that you don’t have while ignoring your actual weaknesses.
Traditional golf stats measure a combination of skills; You got up and down but was it a good chip or good putt? You hit the green in regulation but which was better the tee shot or approach shot?
Using Strokes Gained stats can more accurately pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses in driving, approach shots, short game and putting, and in more detailed subcategories.
“If a stroke starts on a tee where, according to historical data, the average score is four, and if it finishes at a position in the fairway where the average strokes to hole out is 2.8, then the tee shot has moved the ball 1.2 strokes closer to the hole with just one stroke. The single tee shot has gained 0.2 strokes compared to an average tee shot, so it has a “strokes gained” of 0.2. Strokes gained recognizes that sinking a 20-foot putt represents a better performance than sinking a three-foot putt, even though they both count as a single stroke on the scorecard. Strokes gained assigns a number to this intuition.”
