So, is a save more than just saving par....meaning good drive, second shot misses green, chip or pitch to green and two putt???? For a bogie 5.
In my current golfing world a bogie is not a bad score.... I had a line for saves yesterday, but I had none to save par....several to save bogie.
No, a “save”, saves you a stroke whether it is for double, triple. A “save” is 1-2 shots max. Most golfers chip/pitch then 2 or 3 putt… we want to chip/pitch into the cup, or chip/pitch and at most have only 1 putt !... that is a “save”. So, a save will be any 2 shot combo, usually from off the green, that saves you a stroke. This is the most important area to track for an amateur.

OK... a save is one or two shots and saves you from 3 or more shots...got it!
