Shot Scope asks Russ:

What feature of Shot Scope do you like the best?

Collecting medals and seeing where I rank on the Leaderboards. It really brings a fun and competitive element to the watch.

How does Shot Scope help your golf game?

It’s really helped me understand exactly how far each club goes and has also helped me understand which club I get Up & Down more often with.

What is your golfing goal?

To play all the top 100 courses in the UK (I’ve currently played 33 of them).

Favourite golfing moment?

The first time I played in a competition with my son, Toby. I’m hoping it won’t be long until I play in one with my daughter, Hannah too.

I love using the Shot Scope as it really helps me understand how far I hit each club, which has enabled me to make some changes to my club set up which has improved my scoring as a result. Collecting medals and seeing where I rank on the Leaderboards is great fun too.

Russ' putting statistics

PUTTING

Russ is a great putter. Anywhere over 90% short range (<6ft) is excellent. Likewise, anywhere around 30% medium range (6-18ft) is up there with tour standard. The only area where Russ could putt slightly better is long range (18ft+), we would like to see this get up to 10%. Other than that, keep up the great work on the greens Russ!

Russ' approaches statistics

APPROACHES

Similarly to his Tee Shots stats, 60% Green Success indicates that Russ is a strong player from tee to green. Naturally this stat shows he hits more greens from the fairway, so hitting the fairway is an obvious goal. For reference, top tour pros hit upwards of 70% greens when they are competing at the top of the leaderboard. Again Russ should aim to increase his 60% to 65% for the 2019 season, little improvements like this will impact his score positively.

Russ' short game statistics

SHORT GAME

Russ doesn’t miss many greens, so rarely has to chip and this is why it is perhaps the weak area of his game. 13ft proximity is good, however we would like to see this nearer the 10ft mark. Analysing by club shows us that Russ’ SW is the club that he struggles with and we would suggest Russ focusses on improving this area of his game going forward.

Russ' tee shots statistics

TEE SHOTS

Fairway Success of 65% shows Russ hits it well off the tee. This percentage is what you would expect a low single figure / scratch golfer to be hitting per round. Not only is Russ accurate off the tee, he hits a good distance too. A good goal for Russ to set would be increasing this to 70%, a small but achievable goal for the season.

Russ' clubs statistics

CLUBS

Russ’ P-Avg shows that he is solid ball striker with consistent gaps between most clubs. As Russ highlights in his video, his distances showed he had two gaps – you can see he has now added a 4 iron and PW to bridge these gaps. The PW has slotted in nicely, however Russ needs to be hitting his 4 iron a little bit further to cover the gap between his 5 iron and H21. Ideally we would like to see this sit at about 210-215 yards.
