Hit More Greens in Regulation
If you've been paying attention to the underlying "noise" around the PGA Tour, you realize that the winners each week are consistently high in one key statistical category – greens in regulation. With all the distance stats, putting stats and other, the statistics guys are beginning to zero in on the real truth -- the golfer who gives himself the most birdie opportunities is more likely to win.
The other side of that coin is that even a long approach putt is generally a lot easier shot than a routine chip or pitch, and certainly a lot more productive than a bunker shot or recovery from who-knows-what. We talk about how good these guys are around the greens, but the very best are only 55-70% in scrambling and/or bunker saves, and that's not anywhere close to their two-putts-or-better percentage.
So, no matter how you hit it from the tee, what really matters most to your scoring -- day in and day out -- is how many greens you are hitting in regulation. And since that's so important, let me suggest a few tips to help you improve that ratio:

You omitted an interesting and troubling factor regarding that road trip. The term papers published a very interesting article calling out wide spread illegal seizures in US motorways. I wonder how it is in the long distance trip.
