I welcome you to golf. And golf forums. This is also my first time on here. Just to record my scores, as you note.
I will request you be put on my friend list. You do also and we can compare number of putts per hole. It's the only stat I keep. You try it for a round or two. Just note small superscript number beside the score for the # of putts on that hole. Only balls that are on the green count for putts.
You should drop about 4 putts per nine just by putt-recording alone.
Another thing 4 putting. Put a red dot with a permanent red marker on the front of the ball as you will view it to putt, and focus on putting the club through to that dot. Watch as your putting will greatly improve. In other words, hitting the front of the ball instead of just hitting the back of the ball. Is that logical?
Enjoy your putting. And buy the 2-Ball White Hot XG mallet putter from Odyssey, offset full-shaft. It's that good.
