There’s a lot of statistics available in golf. Some are more useful than others. Part of the trick of becoming a better golfer is understanding what to measure and how to use that information.

One statistic that I use for my own game is fairway percentage. If I’m driving the ball well, then I know my game is in good shape. A simple calculation will tell me if I’m hitting the fairway or not.

If you want to calculate your own fairway percentage, simply record the number of times you hit the fairway off the tee, and divide it by total number of drives. For example: if you hit 10 out of 12 fairways, then your fairway percentage is 83%.

As you play more rounds of golf, your fairway percentage will naturally fluctuate up and down. However, over time an average will emerge. Use this number as a benchmark for yourself. As you improve at golf, so too should your fairway percentage increase.

It’s impossible to play a round of golf without keeping score. Golf is a game that is constantly measured and evaluated. Your handicap, the amount of strokes you take on a hole or your best score is used to compare yourself to others and measure your progress.

With the introduction of golf statistics, there are now even more ways to analyze your game and become a better player. Knowing what you are doing wrong can lead to improvement in your game and help you know what works for you and what doesn’t. While there are hundreds of stats, the following are some of the most important ones that can lead to drastic improvement in your game:

In golf, it’s not so much what you don’t know that hurts you, but rather what you truly believe to be true that can be your downfall. Golfers often have misconceptions about their game and what’s good for them. Here are the top 10 misconceptions in golf today:

1. If a ball is used, it must be white.

2. A bogey is a birdie’s baby brother.

3. Golf is a good walk spoiled.

4. If every golfer played one round of golf at the same time on the same course, there would be no waiting on the tee boxes or putting greens and no slow play on the fairways.

5. Golf isn’t fun and games; it should be taken seriously because it isn’t easy.

6. The average golf score of 130 is attributed to all amateurs who play the sport worldwide, regardless of their handicap or skill level.

7. There are only 18 holes in a round of golf because that’s all the land they had at St Andrews when golf was invented there in 1457 by Sir William Wallace (who should have been swinging his sword instead).

8. The typical golfer uses all 14 clubs in his bag each round of 18 holes, except that

Many golfers, whether they admit it or not, enjoy a wager on the game. It is fun to be competitive, and even more fun to win money! But many golfers are not very good at picking winners.

Some players are poor at picking because they do not know enough about the game or the players in the field. Others do not know how to interpret their knowledge. And some just have no feel for numbers and odds.

To help you become a better gambler, we have compiled this list of tips and tricks:

1. The fewer players in a tournament, the better your chances of winning money. This is because every golfer has a chance to win a big prize – as long as there are not too many people competing for it. It is much easier for one golfer to win $10,000 when only 10 other golfers are playing than it would be if 101 others were in the field. This is common sense, but many people forget it when they get excited about betting on Tiger Woods at an event like The Masters where he is the favorite against dozens of other players.

2. Look for underdogs who are playing well but have had bad luck recently (like losing in playoffs). These golfers usually offer great value

How much of a difference can it make if you hit the golf ball right at the flag instead of to the front of the green? To answer this question, I collected some data.

The table below shows the average number of putts per hole for golfers with different handicaps. The numbers are based on actual shots recorded by the ShotLink system that PGA Tour uses to measure every shot taken during a tournament.

As you can see, if you are a low-handicapper and hit your approach shot to the front of the green, you will have an average of 1.7 putts per hole; if you hit your shot right at the flag, your average number of putts will be 1.5, or 12% fewer!

For mid-handicappers, the difference is even bigger: if you hit to the front, your average number of putts will be 2.1; if you hit right at, it will be 1.7, or 20% fewer! At least that’s what they say in my book (see page 21).

Golf is one of the most popular sports in America. According to Statista, over 30 million people play golf on an annual basis with over 19 million playing at least once per month. The average age of a golfer is 43 years old and this sport has seen significant growth among women and children. A 2013 PGA survey found that more than 2 million children under 17 years old played golf at least once during that year; however, it takes some time to become skilled enough to play on an actual course. An average player takes up to 45 strokes on an 18-hole course, so practice makes perfect!
