Winning is Putting

Remember the Coca Cola Play-off in 2015. Jordan Spieth vs. Henrik Stenson.

Stenson was hitting it closer on almost every hole. But Spieth made the putt.

Becoming a great putter takes practice. And practice takes time.

So first of all you have to complete both your long game and short game technique.

After doing that you can fully concentrate on scrambling and putting.

Good college golfers usually practice putting about three hours a day.

Understanding the numbers

There are two KPI (key performance indicator) you always have to know:

  1. Putts per GIR
  2. Scrambling from 15 yards out

 

Now let’s do a little math:

GIR 10, PpGIR 1.8, Scrambling 0.3 => Scoring Average: 75.6
GIR 13, PpGIR 1.8, Scrambling 0.3 => Scoring Average: 72.9 (Brendon Todd 2016)
GIR 10, PpGIR 1.8, Scrambling 0.6 => Scoring Average: 73.2 (Robert Allenby 2016)
GIR 13, PpGIR 1.8, Scrambling 0.6 => Scoring Average: 71.4 (Ernie Els 2016)
