As we know, Mark Broadie (the father of strokes gained) defined putts gained as the best measure of putting skill, much better than other metrics as putts per round, putts per green in regulation or length of holed putts.

We just launched a new section under our strokes gained stats section to show putts gained for each hole. Let's see for example putts gained by Jordan Spieth in the third round of the RBC Heritage tournament in 2022:

If we take for example the fourth hole, we see that Spieth shot his ball to 18 feet from the green. From that distance, the average of the PGA Tour player, the 'benchmark', is 1.84 shots to hole. Spieth needed two putts to hole, so the difference between 2 and 1.84 shots are his strokes gained, or in this case lost, -0.16.

On the next hole, Spieth started putting from 4 feet, which has a benchmark of 1.14 shots. Spieth holed his first putt, which means he won 0.14 strokes gained ( 1.14 expected shots - 1 actual shot ).

On the 18th hole, Spieth three putted from 11 feet, which caused him to loose 1.34 shots (1.66 expected - 3 actual).

Spieth scored a 68 for the round, but his putting was clearly not helping him, losing 2.92 strokes during the round.
