My yardage book
Granted, it's a bit much. But all these symbols matter to me.

FROM FRIDAY (124F, 6, 0, 138, -9, -1)
For this shot, it was 124 yards to the front of the green (124F) and 138 to the flat. The 6 means I was aiming to hit my approach six yards right of the flag, and the 0 means I was trying to hit it pin-high. The -9 means I hit it nine yards left of my target, and the -1 is one yard short. I’ll only keep this level of stats from the fairway–there’s too much variability from any other lie that’s out of my control.
FROM SUNDAY (FR, SU, 9R)
The FR means the pin was in the front right. SU is an abbreviation for Sunday. And 9R means the pin was nine paces off the right side of the green.
FROM SUNDAY (NW, 3W, -23, BL)
NW means there was no wind, as opposed to LR for left-to-right wind or DW for downwind. I hit 3-wood off the tee (3W) and missed it 23 yards left of my target (-23), and it finished in the bunker left (BL).
FROM SUNDAY (150F, 156, NW, 9I)
This was the bunker shot on 18. I had 150 yards to the front of the green, 156 to the flag, there was no wind, and I hit 9-iron. What you don’t see here is, if my ball finished one yard farther right in the bunker, I probably would have had to pitch out.
FROM SUNDAY (18 LR, S, F, 1)
I hit the shot to 18 feet, and the putt was left to right. I judge breaks by small, medium or large, and this one was small (S). The putt was flat (F) instead of downhill or uphill. The 1 means I missed it by a foot.
ALL ROUNDS (OR, P, F, S)
I use this area for general info. The left column notes missed putts. OR means I overread it. On Saturday, my pace (P) was off. The right column is for greens in reg. I’ll write an F if I missed on the fat side of the green, and S if I’m on the short side of the hole.
