Most golfers wonder how they compare to other golfers in different stats. Currently, the one data that is available is the Handicap. However, there is no data available showing how many people play below 100, or 90, 80, 70...
Using data from its Golf Handicap calculator and from the golf mobile scoring apps, TheGrint is performing a series of studies to analyze the golfers performance and needs. Click on the link to read the first study in the series: "TheGrint Handicap and Performance Studies."
Regarding some of the findings on Handicap Distribution, the studies show that the 10-15 Handicap range represent the majority of golfers who track their handicap with 27%; and that only 3% of golfers have a handicap below 3.
It also shows that the distribution follows a bell curve implying that the majority of golfers are in the mid range handicaps 10-20. This unexpected result is due to the fact that most high handicapped golfers do not track their handicap or scores.
Regarding Scores Distribution, the study shows that 7% of golfers who track their handicap are not able to break 100, 63% of golfers can break 90 on a good day and only 13% of golfers can break 80 on a good day.
Another study is performed on Greens in Regulation Percentage showing that scratch golfers hit on average 64% of GIR, or 12 greens out of 18. While 10-15 hdcp range golfers hit 27%, and 25-30 hdcp range golfers hit 10%.
