How Many Birdies Did You Make This Year?

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 08 Oct 2021 | Comments

Thousands of golfers have continued to track their scores on Golfshake throughout the summer, not only to obtain and manage their golf handicap online and record their scores and stats, but as part of our campaign in association with Callaway Golf to participate in our 2021 #BirdieClub Challenge.

Golfers were encouraged to track their scores, but also focus on shooting lower scores to record as many net birdies as possible which then counted towards our Golfshake Birdie Club Challenge to win weekly prizes provided by Callaway Golf and Odyssey.

With tens of thousands of golfers taking part and tracking hundreds of thousands of rounds it got us thinking about how well we have done this season and how many actual birdies, not net birdies, we have made collectively. For those new to Golfshake or not familiar with the Score Tracker service we offer, the online website provides a wealth of valuable analysis and insights into your game to help you on your quest to improve. Past research from the Golfshake data shows that golfers who actively track their scores and monitor their performance, will, on average save three shots per year using the Golfshake Score Tracker.


So, how did your year stack up? How many birdies did you manage to record this year? Previous analysis on Golfshake highlighted the following benchmarks

The Average 10 Handicap Will Have

  • 0.88 Birdies per round
  • 7.20 Pars
  • 9.9 Bogeys or worse
  • 0.02 Eagles
The Average 14 Handicap Will Have
  • 0.55 Birdies per round
  • 5.47 Pars
  • 11.92 Bogeys or worse
  • 0.01 Eagles
The Average 18 Handicap Will Have
  • 0.31 Birdies per round
  • 3.6 Pars
  • 14.09 Bogeys or worse
  • 0.01 Eagles

For those that already track their scores on Golfshake we provide an array of in-depth analysis and reports. For those not yet tracking their scores you can simply sign up for a free account today and start tracking your data to get these insights. The free Golfshake service allows you to track unlimited rounds on multiple courses while maintaining your golf handicap for free. Below we round up some of the most useful reports and insights.

The Golfshake Birdie Club & Eclectic Scoring

The Birdie Club report, available from the Challenges section, will allow you to review all your rounds for one particular course. The data presented will then provide your average hole scoring as well as your eclectic scores for the course. An eclectic score is made up of the best scores you have ever recorded for each individual hole. Additionally, we also provide the reverse of this to see where you lost shots!

Furthermore, as part of our exciting Birdie Club Challenge, this report will provide details on which holes you have recorded a birdie. Can you record a birdie on every hole at one particular course?
