How do you measure growth?

The question was asked to a few pros this week at the BMW Championship. The PGA Tour was playing its season’s penultimate event, so it was a time to reflect.

The answers were varied. 

Said Matt Fitzpatrick: “I think you look at — well, that’s a tough question, asking me, but there’s probably a million ways to do it.

“I think you look at your strokes gained numbers. I think that’s probably the most telling. You could argue that you could probably win two or three times but have worse strokes gained numbers. You look at Scottie [Scheffler], for example — even though he’s probably not won as much as he’d like, he’s played unbelievable all season, and you can’t knock that, whereas I want to say I’ve won as many times as Scottie this year, which seems pretty bizarre.

“I think it’s measured more than just wins. Wins are nice, but for me, if I could consistently hit a strokes gained number throughout every single year, gradually improve, that’s the sign of improvement.”

Said Cameron Young: “I think it can be hard to in some ways, but I think just as far as — I think I’m better at being a professional golfer than I was a year ago, as far as the routines we go through in practice, the routines I go through in warmup. I think I’m doing more productive things at tournament weeks and at home golf-wise.

“I think I’m understanding my golf more and more, and I think it’s really hard to measure those things, but I know they’re there even if some of the results don’t really speak to that. Yeah, it’s just some very little things here and there.”

Said Wyndham Clark: “I would say like this year — I mean, this year a huge success would have been in my mind just getting better mentally to where I feel more comfortable on Thursday, Friday, Saturdays and Sundays, and handling adversity better, handling the tough pressure moments better, and then also enjoying the process a lot more. To me, that would have been a successful season.

“That’s how I kind of judge my seasons. Whenever the wins happen, that’s great, and the results, but I’m really more focused on that stuff. Some years you can still do that and it not happen. and other years it’ll happen.”

Of course, you can also measure things another way:
