We have spent the last few days combing through some data that suggests that over 85% of missed approach shots are left short. This could be for a number of reasons including
Not hitting it as far as we think we do
Playing to a front pin yardage rather than giving enough room for minor misses.
Fear of going too far
We hear a lot of talk on the forum about random balls flying too far, etc. Yet if our stats are accurate, those percentages are quite small. Looking at my own personal data, it appears as though when I miss the green, I only go long on approach shots 6% of the time.
Where do you think your own game falls in this spectrum of stats?
