Interesting statistics

We would like to share a few interesting statistics that we have extracted from the handicap system as well as the results from our club survey of who is winning the majority of club Better Ball competitions.

Below please find the statistics showing the percentage of time that golfers play to or below their handicaps. This is monitored on a monthly basis and as can be seen there is no major advantage for any handicap group.

Another interesting statistic is the exceptional scoring statistic. This is effectively equivalent to 39 or more Stableford points. Again there is very little difference between the handicap groups although as expected it increases slightly with handicap.

MAY-2012

HCP Range

-6 to 5
3.50%

3.84%
13 to 18
4.10%
19 to 24
4.24%
25 to 36
4.75%


We have of course no idea from the system who wins the most better ball competitions, so we asked the clubs to please give us their 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed winners of their Better Ball competitions over the April, May and June 2012 period. 47 clubs responded and below is the overall result of this survey, against the average number of players in these divisions country wide.

So from these statistics the players in the handicap range 6 to 18 win better ball competitions at a slightly higher percentage than the other golfers. Your club competition results may or may not differ from these figures but each club can of course do their own statistics.
