Let’s cover exactly what you’ll see on Traditional Stats which is available in every pricing tier of Roundabout..
Before downloading Roundabout, you likely kept track of common ‘Traditional Stats’ to see how you were playing. While these traditional stats are not as indicative of true play compared to advanced metrics like Strokes Gained, they do give an indication of how each area of your game is doing.
Fairways – This statistic that tells you how many fairways you hit out of how many opportunities with tee shots on Par 4’s and Par 5’s and is an indicator of driving performance. In this case, Johnny Mulligan hit 3 out of a possible 14 fairways for a fairway percentage of 21.4%. Our advanced metrics will take this a step further and tell you whether you tend to miss right or left and how many strokes your driving is losing or gaining.
Greens – This metric tells you how many Greens In Regulation (GIR) you hit out of how many opportunities. A GIR is when you get your ball on the green in the 2 shots less than the par of the hole (1 shot for a par 3, 2 or less shots for a par 4, and 3 or less shots for a par 5). Greens in Regulation is a function of Tee to Green (T2G) play as it typically requires a good drive and good approach shots to hit a green in regulation. In this case, Johnny hit 6 of 18 possible greens for a GIR percentage of 33.3%.
Scrambling – This statistic details short game performance. In Roundabout, we consider all shots within 75 yards to be a scrambling opportunity regardless of score. So whether you are trying to get up and down for birdie or double bogey, a shot inside 75 yards is an opportunity to ‘Scramble’. This is different from the traditional definition of scrambling and is more reflective of total short game performance. Keep in mind that you can have more than one scrambling attempt on a single hole. If you have a shot from 50 yards to get up and down for birdie and you leave it short in the bunker, you now have a second scrambling opportunity for par from the bunker. If you are successful in getting it ‘up and down’, hitting it from the bunker onto the green and making the putt for par, you will have gone 1 for 2 (50%) in scrambling attempts for that hole. In the above, Johnny took only two shots to hole out (up and down) on 7 out of 13 possible attempts (53.8%) for shots inside 75 yards.
Putts – Putts is simply the number of putts you took to complete your round. This shot can be misleading as a low number of putts does not necessarily indicate great putting performance. Typically missing greens leads to less putts. See the other slides in the round summary for Strokes Gained Putting, which is more indicative of true putting performance.
Ave Drive – This is the distance of your average tee shot on Par 4s and Par 5s. It includes all clubs you may have used even if you teed off 4 iron or 3 wood. See the Driving slide in the round summary for per club averages.
Long Drive – This is the distance of your longest drive of the day on tee shots for par 4s and par 5s.
