The importance of Statistics

You do not need to be a good golfer or have a handicap to use Stats, if you are a beginner you may feel you don't play well enough to consider using this section - but you really should - so we have simplified the Statistics section just for you.

Try it, keep it simple and just complete one or two sections for a few rounds and see if a pattern starts to emerge.  Keeping track of how you play will help you to improve by identifying consistent weaknesses in your game. You don't need to go mad, just try keeping a track of one or two areas and see if it helps.

The Stats Read Me page provides more detailed information about how to go about using Stats.

Entering the information about your rounds will help you enormously and by sharing this with your PGA Pro, (use the link at the bottom of the summary page), it will help them to identify the areas of your game that need improvement. You can view the statistics for your last round plus all previous rounds as monthly totals.
Stats Explained
helps you to interpret the results.

We have created 2 different styles of Stats Card to download which will help you keep track of your shots as you play your round. Print them when required, the actual size is the same as a standard score card.
