The Golf Digest Challenge

I decided to try the Golf Digest challenge. We'll see how long that lasts. They have you enter the Fairways hit, the GIRs (Greens in Regulation), the number of putts, chips, and sand saves.

They use this information to calculate not only your handicap, but they divide it into 2 categories: your short game handicap and long game handicap. The theory is that then you can know what to focus on during your practice hours to lower your overall handicap.

I have only entered 2 rounds right now, but I can see already that I really need to focus on my short game handicap. The biggest area of focus should be my chipping because I have on average only 20% saves on my chips.
