Greens in Regulation Pct.
Greens in Regulation is the percent of time a player was able to hit the green in regulation (greens hit in regulation/holes played). Note: A green is considered hit in regulation if any part of the ball is touching the putting surface and the number of strokes taken is 2 or less than par.

Putts Per Round
This is the average number of putts per round played.

Putting Average
Putting Leaders measures putting performance on greens hit in regulation. For each green hit in regulation the total number of putts are divided by the number of greens hit in regulation. By using greens hit in regulation we are able to eliminate the effects of chipping close and one putting in the computation.

Birdie Average is the average number of birdies made per round played.
Theory: My friend Mats has a round with 18 green hits and 36 putts.
Very well, but he got a N-Index of 0.
If he "only" made 10 greens with 36 putts it would have been a better chip-index round
and he would have gotten a N-Index of +4.

The formula: N-Index = putts - (18 - greens) / 2

Read: "We should have one-putts on half of the missed greens"

When we misses the green it gives us better chance to reduce the number of putts.
Theory: When we made 3 pars or more we all feel golf is simple and we will be able to score.
Then we make the awful mistake, a bogey or double.
What happens on the next hole?
Will we forget this imedataly and proceed as nothing happened.
GolfStat sums this next hole and divides the average score on this next hole
with you total average.

If you get a M-Index > 100% you got your act together and scored better than
average after the misstake. < 100% shows that you probably went to the Tee and drived to the woords...

The theory proved me to be a M-Index 58%! Hopefully you will have much higher :-)
At our tour, CGT, we played the first year as Matches.
It showed very complex to count the tour result when everybody couldn't perticipate in all matches.
Next year we played normal stroke play..
But how were we to count the points in out Tour.
The system had to take into account that a different number of players perticpated in different events.
We developed a Tour Scoring System, we called it Pts(p)
#### Basics

- Winning gives bonus points.
- Winning an event with all tour players should give more points than winning with few players.
- Looser at an event with few players should recieve some more points than the looser at the event with all tour playersAtt komma sist i en tour-tävling med få deltagare med är

#### Formula

Pts(p)=(n+x/k4)+((x*(1-n)+k3*(n-x)-x*x/k4)/(x-1)/x)*(p-1)

With:
3 bonus points for winning.
1 bonus point for 2:nd place.

Where:

n: Number of players in Tour.
x: Number of players in tour event.
p: Place in tour event
Pts(p): Points as a funktion of place (and number of players in event & tour)
k3: constant k3=n^(1/3), (Ex. k3(n=11)=2.224)
k4: constant k4=n^(1/4), (Ex. k4(n=11)=1.821)

Easier is to browse the table for Pts(p)
