Yes, sorry - I mean take your normal swing stance, except without a club and a golf ball in your dominant hand. Swing the arm holding the ball (just one, not both) as if you were trying to hit the...

Or counting the number of chips/putts per hole. I will readily admit that I've had numerous rounds go awry because of dodgy short game and get like 2-3 chips on a few holes.

Anything where you use the putter and are on the green.

If you chip on, but are 60 feet away, you need to sink the putt in order to get an up & down. If that makes your up/down statistic bad,...

I'm assuming that for a person that's aiming to shoot under 100, you might get 0-4 greens in regulation (actually on the green in Par-2) or hit the green with a full shot into the green. If so, then...

Oh, and if you haven't already, start taking stats on your play. Not just strokes, but a basic breakdown should include:

Also, count your putts per round/hole. Breaking 100 means you should be focused on getting your putts down to 36-38/round. (There'll be a few 3-putts here and there, just don't beat yourself up...
