Default Putting Accuracy: What are your percentages?

I am in the process of developing my putting skills and was curious what everyone thought realistic expectations are for percentages of made putts at various distances, and if possible various stances. I know Ken Climos website says 100% from 15 feet, 80% from 20 feet and over 50% from 25 (ideally 30) feet.

Yesterday from my practice, for both straddle and in-line.
88% from 15 feet
80% from 20 feet
40% from 25 feet
20% from 30 feet.

What are your percentages? Would be great to hear from some PROS on this as well!!

I don't want to be a noodge, but the information you get could be VERY misleading.

Did the person rapid-fire putts (after obtaining a "groove")? Then tabulate those numbers?
Did the person putt 1 putt, wait a minute, walk 2 minutes, throw a full shot, wait another minute, walk 1 minute, putt 1 more putt, etc. (like REAL disc golf)? Then tabulate those numbers?

Big difference!

Default practice vs. play

Good point. I guess I'm assuming it's based on Practice routine (whatever you choose to do), not taking into account elevation changes, obstacles, uneven footing, etc that you would find on a course.

Would be interested to hear about "Tournament Round" putting for the 'real deal' as well. I know that my putting percentages drop on the course for all kinds of reasons.

Still just curious what people think are reasonable make percentages, and also what they are hitting during practice (vs. during a round too maybe?).

Thanks, Jimmy

The last time I actually tracked it during a practice session (and it has been several months), I was 53% from 30ft, 76% from 25 feet, 91% from 20 feet, and 100% from 15 feet. This was on flat ground, with no wind, and taking 100 putts from each distance.

i am a "pro". i consider myself to be a very good putter- it is definitely the strongest part of my game.

my estimated percentages:
15 feet - 95% plus
20 feet- 90%
25 feet- 75%
30 feet- 60% plus

drops off pretty quickly after that.

doesn't change very much from practice to tournament situations.

I do not measure it. I used to but stopped, as it does nothing positive for me in tournament/pressure situations.

In tournament situations I "give" myself 2 misses from the 18-25' range per round, shrug off any misses outside 25'. I have a harder time mentally missing putts inside 15'.

If I miss any inside 15' or miss more than 2 in the 18-25' range, I call it a bad putting round and find myself doing the shoulda/coulda talk to myself (I never ty to do that out loud though) since you always earn the score you got.

All that said, in putting practice with 5 putts, retrieve, reset, rinse, repeat I am guessing I am:
15 feet - 90% plus
20 feet- 80%
25 feet- 70%
30 feet- 40-60% (it is this range where I am hot or not depending on who knows what)

I consider myself an average Blue level putter (and sometimes good but never bad) based on my gut feel having competed at that level for many years.

My putting is so streaky so it's hard to determine. Putting is the best part of my game and I practice short putts constantly but longer putts (over 20 feet) I don't practice as much and am not as consistent. This is an estimation based on rounds and in putting practice:

15 feet: 95% (That's 19 out of 20 putts)
20 feet: 85% (That's 17 out of 20 putts)
25 feet: 65% (That's 13 out of 20 putts)
30 feet: 40% (That's 8 out of 20 putts)

I was curious how far I'd come along since the last time I counted for percentages, so I tracked some again today. This is actually indoors since it is so cold out here today, so that makes for perfect putting conditions. Taking 25 putts from each distance using just one putter:

15ft 100%
20ft 100%
25ft 80%
30ft 72%

I know that outside even with very little wind would bring my percentages down, but it is at least nice to know where I stand without wind/elevation being factors.
