I know the feeling well.

 

The thing that keeps you going is knowing you've got the ability like you played at Sandhurst.

 

Sometimes think it's the pressure we heap on ourselves which is a detriment to our game. Playing a different course seems to relax me as I have no expectations of where I'm going or where my approach needs to come from. Seems to clear the mind a bit and you get to focus on just hitting a ball.

 

Bring back the bandit I say!

I think you'll find keeping stats will add more pressure rather than help.

Spoken like a true bandit Tonk, but there is some wisdom in your musing.

That's an interesting point AB. I really refer to them after the game anyway.

I see the stats as a way to identify problem areas first and foremost. I tend to be more point and score oriented which I think is to my detriment.

 

If i can change the mindset to looking to hit the fairways as a first priority, then GIR,  then gradually the score will work itself out.

 

Think you can get to concerned with the score and not realise how it came about or went astray.

I see no reason why keeping stats would add pressure.

All they should do is give you a very accurate snap shot of your strengths and weaknesses over a given period of time.

You can make stats say anything you like. 79% of people know that.

As a fan of "the stat", or as they call it in France "Le Statistique", I agree 1000.485% with you. As long as you don't carry them around in your head whilst you play, post round stats can prove to be anywhere from informative, to useful all the way through to helpful depending on what you record and how you interpret them.

 

At the end of the day, stats don't hit the golf ball for you, but they can tell you how well you did. And from there you can work out how to do it better. Never seen a stat improve my swing, but they have helped me focus on areas of the games to work on. From there my course management has improved, I make better decisions during a round and viola... my scores improve. And how do I know this... stats!

 

Just don't get caught up with a bazillion different categories. Strokes, putts, Fairways and GIRs will help tell you the basics you really know to "health check" your game.

You were part of the 3.5% that has since be made redundant through regression analysis and distribution reforecasting.

Yep, mainly due to inference for difference of proportions..

Good reading so far Marco. I was interested to see you smash, smash, smashed your hybrid into the wind on one of your tee shots. Now that, is a great attituded to have on every shot.

i used to keep stats when i was right into golf, it does highlight weak areas as the great smergmonster has mentioned. it only helps 68% of people though.
