I’m proud to say that, I played golf for Penn State in college. The best golfer to graduate from the Penn State Women’s golf team is currently on the LPGA Tour, her name is Katie Futcher. My college coach, Denise St. Pierre, shared this visual with me, it’s the one that Katie uses. Ever since I have used it to evaluate my game.
If you did not get a chance, my last two postings were titled “the need for speed” and “hit your mark”.
In this visual, the red box represents the fairway and the circle represents the green. In conjunction with the accuracy/distance blog, the red line down the middle of the fairway represents the accuracy line (how accurate are you hitting your tee shot?) The end of the box bisects the middle of the green. This portion of the box will represent your distance control on the green. Since the diagram is a circle, every green will not look like this,measure your statistics as if the center of the circle is in relation to the hole. From here, plot each shot you take during the round.
This is an example of 9 holes, the numbers with astricks * represent your approach shots. At the end of your round you can evaluate which area you tend to miss a shot.
