We’ve all been there, haven’t we? You and your buddy are debating who the best putter is on tour and you head straight to their stats to proudly prove your pal wrong.
Whilst stats are an excellent resource that provides increased insight into a player’s performance, they’re also handy for your own game.
Of course, we’re not expecting you to match their numbers, but you start to gain an understanding of just how many putts don’t find the cup.
When we watch professional golf, the leaders are typically followed throughout the tournament.
Whilst that’s obviously where the entertainment is, it also gives viewers a false understanding of how often putts simply miss.
If you peruse PGA Tour professionals statistics, you’ll understand just how frequently they miss.
