Will just share a few pics of the data available on the app from the company's website.

Maybe darenlim can further explain how we can use this data to improve our game?

This application is good but it needs to be more precise.
I have not tried it personally yet thought.

From the 1st diagram, it shows that the person is wild off the tee, more often missing the fairway on the right. It would be good to work on the driver and work on a specific shape of shot so that you are able to eliminate missin on one side of your game.

2nd diagram, is not specific enough. Has to show what club are you missing with from what distance. Missing left or right etc..

3rd diagram, it shows putting averages. Has to be more specific also.
You are missing or sinking putts from what length. Missing below or above the cup etc..

Basically its a good program but I personally would like it to be more specific. I want to be able to know where I actually am lacking.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi Bro,
Thanks for yoru feedback.

What numbers would you think be reasonable for fairway %?
I personally think that social golfers' number for this should be higher than PGA pro as our GIR% if we miss the fairway is way lower.
So its better to drive shorter (more controlled) but on fairway.

The rest...diagram 2 & 3...i understand...
guess i would need to indicate on the score card manually (split each row/ column into driver, approach (dist/ club/ left/ right), putt (short/ long/ high/ low) AND use this software for score tracking.

what do you think?

- Normally I would refer my stats to PGAtour.com statistics. For social golfers, they would normally hit lesser fairways and greens. Ultimately, you need to strive for accuracy and consistency, the chart is meant to point out where you are dropping shots at. Please remember that LENGTH, is not a big game changing factor but ACCURACY is. It would be better to put more of your balls on the fairway as you are giving yourself a good setup for your approach. From there you are able to score better.

- This is good. I will have to dig up my old records or do a new one.
Post it up next week.

That is a decent percentage but still can improve.
60% is about 8/14 fairways. You would like to average 10/14 fairways.
