Here are answers to common questions Golf Pad users have about the our new Strokes Gained feature. 

Q: Is the Strokes Gained statistic calculated off of the average scratch golfer or a PGA Tour player?

A: Strokes gained is a stat that is measured against the average PGA Tour player's performance.

Q: Why is my total strokes gained different than the total I get when I add up the four categories?

A: Some shots do not fall into any of the tracked categories causing the discrepancy. Examples are recovery shots or second shots on par 5 where green is not reachable.
