No, you are right.  According to Mitchell, Par 3 holes are not included in the FIR calculation.

Look at my stats. I play and made some Par 3 courses, it sure looks to me that my stats confirms that Par 3 courses hurt the greens in regulation. It shows me at under 50% and I know I am better than that. :)

The Big Valley
Roy Rogers Happy Trails
Gilligan's Island Par 3
Magestic Mountain

Yea, I'm pretty sure something's up - hope they have a 2nd look at it.

Plus the fact that your highest percentage looks to be the magical 77% (4 par 3's).  Would think that in all your rounds you would have a couple higher than that.

MY FIRs were always between 70 and 75%, even when I hit every fairway. Goes to show that par 3 holes are included in the FIR calculation. At the same time, my GIRs were between 80 and 95%. I'm not sure if I ever had a single round FIR % above 80, while I had quite a few 100% GIR rounds.

You'll see the same ceiling on mine - nothing higher than 77%

14/18=77%

Can only conclude that the on the times I hit every fairway, those courses included 4 par 3's.  I can guarantee that I've hit much higher than 77%...

I've got the FIR Collector badge for hitting all the fairways on an official course and yet my highest FIR on my chart is only 77%.

Sorry HB, but this is why we've brought the question up - something's not right with the FIR #'s and I think once it's corrected you'll see FIR numbers skyrocket across all golfers.

Hitting the Green with the T-shot on par 3'a (and 4's) should also count as positive FIR.

On par 4s yes - on par 3s no.

Or would you give yourself a FIR for hitting fairway on a par 3 as well.

Par 3s are excluded from FIR calculations normally.

I was amazed to hear that this had been looked into and everything was working correctly!!
Just play a few par 3 courses and a normal one and then check your FIR% for that day!!!!  :o
My last 7 courses (newest first):
Binyon Peak
McGonagall Golf Club
Lovelace Bay
Swinburne Forest GC
Brackenridge Nine by Acrilix

Wonder how soon we'll see a fix.

Obvious bug - so I hope they sort it out. Plenty of these small issues with the stats. The stats screens on the leaderboard after a round have plenty of items that makes no sense. Putt percentages is one example.

I hope so, too.  At the moment, the displayed FIR% is probably about 22% lower than the actual %.

'The List' is very long and things are always changing priority so it's not something I had looked at recently. I thought it was something we had already fixed at some point. After the stream I took another look and found the problem, the fix is already implemented and you guys should see it soon.
