    I think the strokes gained analysis is brilliant.

    What system do you use to log the data?

    Re: 2018 targets and plans?

    My targets and plans for 2018 are as follows.

    Targets get handicap down from 18.9 to 15.4 or better. Shoot scratch 85 or better round Gailes off medal tees.

    My plan for 2018 is

    to identify my weaknesses.
    play as often as I can
    structure my week to give me practice time and state at beginning of week what I am going to do.
    Make the practice time more constructive.
    continue to have lessons and work on the technical changes.

    Identify my weaknesses.

    I need to have a more consistent pre shot routine and stick to it. - busy setting one up just now that feels comfortable. I have one that repeats for my driver but strangely not for any other club.

    Be more relaxed / have a neutral reaction to each shot. Trying very hard with this as I get upset too quickly

    Not keep my score in my head. I seem to get too up tight when I know exactly how I have scored. So for the last few Saturday sweeps I have been writing my score down and then trying to forget about it. Not easy but getting there, golf seems more consistent when I just write it down and move on.

    Realise that there is not always a technical problem needing sorted if a shot doesn't go quite right.

    play as often as I can

    Pretty self explanatory, only stay 5 minutes from Gailes and it's never busy, so easy enough to play. Majority of the Saturday sweep are single figures from scratch up, so playing regularly with them will help as well.

    structure my week to give me practice time and state at beginning of week what I am going to do.

    again fairly self explanatory. Try and allocate time to practice, either at range or even at home and include reading books and watching you tube videos to do this. It's too easy to get to the end of the week and have done nothing. Home practice can include swinging in front of mirror and putting practice on rug on living room.

    Make the practice time more constructive.

    Have a series of drills to do at the range, prepared before I go and then follow it through. Setting up test sets for ball and ground striking and to certain distances. Having read Adam young's Practice Manual he has some great test sets to do. With parameters for success and failure based on handicap. Work on my weakest parts of the game the most, while keeping the stronger parts ticking over ?


    continue to have lessons and work on the technical changes.

    Not have as many during the playing season, most off the work being done through the winter. Building drills in to the range sessions to work on changes from the pro.

    I've been really impressed with the Taylormade App, i dont like using it during the round though, so just note down distance to pins etc on a seperate card and log it after the round (whereas you can use the GPS as you go).

    the main issue you will have (similar to me) is that scratch is based on the american scratch, which usually works out at about 2 over here. However its all relative i suppose.

    this website is brilliant for putting strokes gained - https://www.golfrankingstats.com/str...ed-calculator/ i've learnt that i actually gain strokes quite often, not because i hole putts but because i 2 putt from long distance so often

    Re: 2018 targets and plans?

    I use golfshot (after my round) to enter the data and analyse.

    I've been considering the Arcoss 360 and i like that it's not intrusive, but it's a bit pricey for what it is so haven't taken the plunge yet.
