Golf Skills Assessment – Test Your Iron Accuracy

One of the most important aspects of improving your golf game is developing consistency and accuracy with your approach shots. A good golf skills assessment can help you dial in your irons and focus you on the practice range. Trakman created what they call a “Combine” to assess the golf skills of some lucky enough to afford that launch monitor. It gives you a final accuracy score after hitting some iron shots. I needed a golf skills assessment for use with the Optishot 2 so I worked with a developer to create a golf skills assessment for the visitors to my site. This accuracy test will give you an idea of where your golf game stands in terms of your iron play.

Golf Skills Assessment Web App


What is it?

This skills test has golfers hit 6 balls each from 9 different distances (60 yards to 180 yards) and record how close your ball lands to the pin. Using the Optishot 2 golf simulator you can easily track the distance of each shot you hit. You will then use the Skills Assessment App Link to record your distances from the pin of each shot and then the web app will come up with a score from 0-100. That score will tell you how accurate you are with your irons. Use this number to compare to other Optishot players and/or improve your score.

How it Works

The Golf Skills Assessment Web App will track your scores each time you take the test. Here are the steps you need to take the assessment:

1. Get an Optishot 2 (If you don’t already have one check out you can build your own golf simulator room)

2. Open up the Skills Assessment Web App

3. Go to the “Driving Range” in Optishot

4. Set the distance of your 1st shot at 60 yards. (Distances: 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 140, 160, 180)

5. Hit 6 shots at that distance.

6. Record each shot in the Skills Assessment App

7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 using the nine different distances.

8. At the end you will receive an Accuracy Score


Using our golf skills assessment app to test your iron accuracy is a great way to improve your game. Try to beat your score and become a consistent golfer. This focused practice is the best way to achieve your goals. Find my other iron accuracy drills by clicking HERE.


I am really interested in starting an Iron Accuracy Challenge, in which Optishot users take the accuracy test, record their scores and compare them to other golfers. This is still in the works but if you are interested in something like or have ideas on how to make it work please use the contact form below to let me know.
