Bringing Strokes Gained statistics to all golfers.

What Is Strokes Gained

Strokes Gained Stats Now Available To You!

New Strokes Gained golf game statistical analysis:
Traditional golf statistics have very limited ability to measure game performance. The winner in golf is determined by the least strokes taken - the unit of measurement is strokes. Newly developed Strokes Gained statistics, now used by the PGA Tour to measure"strokes gained putting," gives golfers the ability to measure their performance in terms of the most important measurement in the game - strokes. And it works not only for putting, but applies to every aspect of your golf game from tee to green as well.

Measure and track performance in terms of strokes:
By keeping your own Strokes Gained statistics, you are now able to measure and track progress in literally every aspect of your golf game. You will be able to see immediately how many strokes you are gaining or losing in different parts of your game, in comparison to a stable benchmark established by the average PGA Tour pro performance, in the following categories:

  • Tee Box (par 4 and 5), also knows as Strokes Gained Driving.
  • Approach
    • 200+ yds.
    • 150-200 yards
    • 100-150 yards
  • Short Game
    • 50-100 yards
    • 0-50 yards
  • putting

These categories can be further refined down to 10-yard increments for even more precise analysis.

In additional, performance measures take into account the following lie-type situations encountered on a course:

  • Fairway lies
  • Rough
  • Sand
  • Recovery situations

Literally, right down to each individual stroke taken during your rounds of golf, you will know for every shot how many fractions of strokes you gained or lost with that stroke This is known as shot value.
