    What To Work On
    Personalised, data-driven and actionable insights for every player and coach


    What To Work On is a detailed, data-led view on your game at a point in time. Now you can see each part of your game broken down into sub-groups that link closely to a skill. For OTT, we look at your performance with a Driver, F/W wood and Other (irons or hybrids). For ARG, we look at the different lies you will play from, and so on.

    We assess the impact all of these groups/skills have on your overall game through three dimensions – Importance to scoring, the Opportunity to improve and SQ Trend in terms of your Average Shot Quality.

    A new Clippd Algorithm then produces a tailored, personalised and prioritised list of What To Work On suggestions, with supporting information on each to help you understand why and make more informed decisions on what to do next.

    Your default What To Work On priority list is ranked by a combination of Importance, Opportunity and Shot Quality Trend. However, you can now select different ways to view your list. You can filter by:

    Importance: The most important skills for your scoring.
    Quick Wins: The skills where you can make the biggest gains in the shortest amount of time.
    Shot Quality Trend: How you're trending in different skills.
    Strengths: The best parts of your game in descending order.
    Weaknesses: The weakest areas in descending order.

    How it works

    Importance - Importance shows the current impact a part of your game has to your scoring. It’s shown as a percentage value, where a higher percentage means that specific area is more important to your scoring.

    For example, if your ARG Fairway play tends to drive both good and bad scoring (you score well when it’s good, and poorly when it’s bad), Clippd recognises this resulting in a higher percentage for Importance. Equally, if your ARG Fairway has little impact on your scoring good or bad, Clippd would give this a lower percentage for Importance.

    Opportunity - Opportunity is your potential to improve based on your previous ability in that area. A higher percentage means a greater opportunity to improve.

    For example, if your OTT Driver is currently 82 for Shot Quality but has previously been 98, your Opportunity to improve would be high as you’ve been at a higher skill level previously.

    Trend - Trend looks at whether your Shot Quality is improving or declining in a specific area. A green arrow indicates you are improving, a red arrow shows a decline.

    For example, if your PUTT 8-15 ft went from 86 Shot Quality to 90 Shot Quality, you would see a green arrow. Clippd also factors in how much or quickly you are improving or declining in that specific area.

    1. The Importance to Scoring chart matches what is shown in Relative importance on your Scoring dashboard.

    2. You can choose to view your overall game in one priority list or filter by OTT, APP, ARG and PUTT, or a selection of any two or three. This means the next time you head to the range, the chipping green or the putting green, you can see how to make the best use of your time.

    3. You can choose how to view the priority list, with the option to toggle between Clippd Default, Importance, Opportunity and Shot Quality via the dropdown menu. Clippd Default is the output from our new algorithm that prioritises the parts of the game you should be working on. It ranks the group/skill by a combination of Importance, Trend and Opportunity, with more weight placed on Importance.

    4. The left side of the dashboard drives the right part of the screen. When you open What To Work On it will display the Clippd Default list of priorities for your overall game, with your highest priority at the top of the list. In this case, Blair’s number one What To Work On priority is his putting from 8-15ft. Each group/skill is clickable, revealing the supporting information to the right.
