What is the Disc Golf Metrix

One of the most important parts of the Disc Golf World Tour is the Disc Golf Metrix. The Disc Golf Metrix allows competitors, media, and fans to look at a scorecard at a deeper level than in the past. No longer will you see just a hole-by-hole score. The Disc Golf Metrix tracks five statistics: Bullseye Hits, Green Hits, Inside the Circle Putts, Outside the Circle Putts Made and Inside the Bullseye Putts Made.

Bullseye Hits – New addition

Landing inside the 3-meter circle, a.k.a. Bullseye, should yield an automatic birdie on that hole. In the Disc Golf Metrix, Bullseye Hits are recorded as a single element. In order record a successful tally for Bullseye Hits, on any holes that are Par Three, the drive must land inside the circle. On a Par Four, a successful bullseye hit is recorded if the drive or second shot lands inside the circle. A Bullseye Hit is also a Green Hit.

Bullseye Hits are recorded as a golden circle on live scoring.

Green Hits

Landing inside the 10-meter putting circle increases a competitors odds of recording a birdie on a hole. In the Disc Golf Metrix, Green Hits are recorded as a single element just like the Bullseye Hits. In order record a successful tally for Green Hits, on any holes that are Par Three, the drive must land inside the circle. On a Par Four, a successful hit green is recorded if the drive or second shot lands inside the circle.

Green Hits are recorded as a green circle on live scoring.

Inside the Bullseye Putts Made – New addition

A putt made within 3 meters of the basket is is basically a tap-in. Athletes competing in Disc Golf World Tour events are expected to make a putt from that range every single time. Throws originating from the bullseye are not included in the Inside the Circle Putts. Inside the Bullseye Putts are treated as a check box.

If a hole is completed with a throw originating from the bullseye it will be recorded with a dark golden circle on live scoring.

Inside the Bullseye Putts won’t appear in season or life time statistics and their success rate is not recorded at all.

Inside the Circle Putts

Landing inside the circle is only half the battle. You still need to convert the putt from within the 10-meter circle but outside the 3-meter bullseye. This is where the next Disc Golf Metrix statistic comes in. This will be a tally of all putts from within 3-10 meters whether the putt is successful or not.

Inside the Circle Putts are counted and shown as a number on live scoring.

Outside the Circle Putts Made

One could easily turn a good round into a great round with conversions of putts from outside the circle. This could be from just outside the 10-meter circle or from the middle of the fairway on a 600 foot hole. While Inside the Circle Putts are counted, Outside the Circle Putts are treated as a check box.

If the hole is completed from outside the circle it will be recorded with a blue star on the live scoring.

Live Statistics

In addition to the hole-by-hole breakdown of these factors, we have compiled all of the data in one location for easy comparison from person-to-person. You can look at the top ranked competitors for each stat. For example, someone might be making a high percentage of their putts from inside the circle, but their greens hit number is very low. With our Live Statistics you can easily see what kind of impact this is having on their round and on their spot on the leaderboard.

You can go one level further by clicking on an individual name. Once their round is complete their profile will be updated with their latest stats based on the Disc Golf Metrix.
