The Perfect Par Podcast

For the sixth interview of season four of The Perfect Par podcast, I am joined by the creator of DECADE Golf, Scott Fawcett. Scott first appeared on the podcast in episode eight of season two where we discussed the benefits of DECADE. This time, we attack common misconceptions of high-level golf in addition to the future of the game including:

  • Playing only one shot shape
    • Why one shot shape is better
    • Irons VS Driver
    • Optimizing the shot pattern
  • The “problem” with distance
    • Is distance actually a problem?
    • The solutions
    • The problem with bifurcation
  • LIV Golf
    • Is LIV Golf good for the game?
    • Will it survive?
    • The problems and benefits LIV has created
  • Strokes gained
    • What is strokes gained?
    • How should you use it?
    • Is it better than traditional stats?
  • The future of DECADE Golf

DECADE Golf has solved golf strategy by combining shot distribution patterns and PGA Tour scoring statistics.
