Explained: Shots to Finish

We are often asked if we offer a “Strokes Gained” system and then how our own version, “Shot to Finish”, is beneficial to golfers. Here’s a quick overview which will answer your questions so you can better understand the stats on your dashboard.

Shots to Finish is a system created for handicap golfers to be able to evaluate the effect of lie, distance and club on scoring. It breaks down performance to one number which is the number of shots that that shot cost or saved the golfer. It makes analyzing the golfer’s game very easy and areas of improvement can be quickly identified.

For example, a player may take on average 3.2 shots to finish the hole when their approach to the green is from the fairway with a 7 iron, however, the same player might average 3.7 shots to finish the hole with a 7 iron from out of the rough and 4.3 from fairway bunkers. It can then be ascertained that hitting into fairway bunkers costs the golfer at least 0.6 shots each time.
