Strokes Gained Explained

The concept of ‘strokes gained’ is a way of measuring individual aspects of a player’s performance against the rest of the field. While traditional counting statistics like number of fairways hit or number of putts per round can paint a broad picture of a player’s performance, ‘strokes gained’ can measure the individual values of player performances in the specific disciplines of shots off the tee, approaching the green, around the green and putting.

The concept of strokes gained was developed by Professor Mark Broadie of Columbia University. Using the PGA Tour’s shot-specific data that was made available to academic institutions, Broadie’s concept was introduced to the public in 2011, first only in the form of strokes gained putting. In 2016, the PGA Tour introduced strokes gained off-the-tee, approach and around the green, as well.
