Golfers need to keep track of their stats throughout the round on a scorecard. Once the round is over, those stats need to be entered into a database (we maaaaayyyy be working on something there).
The best stat (overall) to keep us Score Per Hole. There are others to keep that aren't featured here.

Score per hole:
We are working on how to teach golfers more about how to track this score as it gets a little confusing if a golfer opts to play a par 3 course.
For a par 72:
Optimally, a golfer who is shooting scratch will have a score of 4 per hole.
A golfer who is playing bogey golf will have a score of 5 per hole.
A golfer who is attempting to break 80 needs to have a score per hole of 4.4.
This stat is just like the typical "Greens in Regulation" stat. If you are putting for birdie (or better), that's going to be a Greens stat in your favor.
There are 18 greens per full round of golf. It's a check if you are putting for birdie (or better). It's an X if not.
This stat is just like the typical "Fairways in Regulation" stat. If you are teeing off on a par 4 or par 5 and find yourself in the fairway after your tee shot, that's a Fairway in your favor.
There are typically 14 fairways per full round of golf. It's a check if you tee off and land in the fairway. It's an X if not.
This is in reference to a shot going out of bounds. Or, a shot that simply can't be played as it lies.
We tell our golfers anytime this happens, make a mark on your scorecard. Then, add them up after the round. If you shot a 92 and you have 4 OB marks on the card, that means you are hitting OB shots 1/23 shots. If you shot a 75 and have 1 OB mark on the card, you are hitting OB shots 1/75 shots.
Pips Per Hole:
Remember what Pips are? It's when you're coming up short (or long) of the green and still have a shot left--no matter from how far!
Again, make a simple mark on the card. And yes, you can have multiple Pips per hole. A shot that's not on the green and should be--Pip it up!
We find that our players with around a 5 Score per hole average typically average around 1 Pips per hole. Players that are closer to a 4 score per hole average around .5 Pips per hole.
Mark down every time you putt the ball on the scorecard. It's a very important stat to keep as the club that will be in your hand on almost every hole is your putter.
