    Guys, this podcast really opened my eyes to taking stats. About a week after you posted this, I began taking some basic stats just using a spreadsheet: fairways hit, greens in reg, and where my misses were for both of those and it has really helped me pinpoint some things in my swing that I need to work and and–more importantly–how to set up to the shot so I am not shooting myself in the foot with my consistent misses. Thanks for this podcast, and I’m truly looking forward to more.

      Hi William, glad it helped! It’s a massive thing for us, as you’ve seen you can start pin pointing where you need to be better and as James Cornish said the approach shots are king. Glad you enjoyed the podcast and thanks for the comment.
