Ok, that was interesting. What would be more interesting is if we had putting stats from the 50's 60's and even 70's. It was still common for the top pros to shoot mid 60 rounds of golf just like it is now, but back then the greens weren't as smooth and true as they are now, the balls didn't keep their true shape as they do now and the putters weren't perfectly balanced as they are today.. So my question is, with all this technology and consistently smooth greens how many strokes per round are the pros better at putting now compared to the good old days?? Are they any better at all??
