Q: What is a “Fairway”?
A: If you hit the fairway off the tee this counts as a Fairway stat. How strict you are on youself is up to you. An argument could be mounted that a well struck drive just into the rough with a clear shot to the green is still an effective drive, and therefore could be counted as a fairway stat. This decision is up to you.

A: A GIR is when you hit a Par 3 in 1 shot, a Par 4 in 2 shots (or less), or a Par 5 in 3 shots (or less).
If you miss the green in regulatuion this becomes an opportunity to either Chip and Putt, or have a Sand Save.

Two bunker shots followed by 1 putt is 3 shots, and is therefore not a Sand Save.

Q: What is a “Chip and Putt”?
A: If you miss the green in regulation, and do not land in a greenside bunker, this becomes an opportunity to have a “Chip and Putt”.
A Chip and Putt is achieved if you get into the hole in 2 shots or less.
Two chips followed by 1 putt is 3 shots, and is therefore not a Chip and Putt.
