What do all the statistics and abbreviations in Stroke Analysis mean?

GIR(Greens in Regulation): Greens in regulation means your ball makes it to the green in the proper amount of strokes in relation to par for the hole. When par is being calculated for a hole, it always accounts for two putts. Thus, to achieve GIR on a Par 3, you must make it to the green in 1 shot, on a Par 4 you must make it to the green in 2 shots, on a par 5 you must make it to the green in 3 shots, etc.

Putts/Round: This statistic simply shows your average number of putts per round of golf you have played with the app

Par saves: A par save occurs when you essentially make only one putt on a hole in order to achieve par. You did not hit the putting surface in few enough shots to achieve GIR, but made par anyway by sinking one and only one putt on a hole.

Fairway hit: The percentage of fairways you hit during your rounds.

Left: The percentage of tee-shots you are hitting to the left of the fairway

Right: The percentage of tee-shots you are hitting to the right of the fairway

Short: The percentage of tee-shots you are hitting short from where you should be in the fairway.

Handicap Index: The handicap index is your current handicap.
