Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Columbia Business School professor Mark Broadies paradigm-shifting approach that uses statistics and golf analytics to transform the game.

 

Mark Broadie is at the forefront of a revolutionary change in the game of golf. Whereas golfers once relied on hunches and intuition to guide their off-course practice and on-course shot selection, Broadie has applied cutting-edge scientific analysis to show how golfers can lower their score. Broadie, a professor at Columbia Business School, analyzed a massive amount of professional and amateur data. His findings overturn accepted wisdom about the game and show that its the long game sets apart great players from merely good players. How many putts over 21 feet does a PGA Tour golfer sink in a four-round tournament? Five? Seven? The average is only 1.5. How close to the hole do 90 golfers hit their approach shots starting 125 yards away on the fairway? Half of their shots land within 45 feet of the pin.

 

Using Golfmetrics amateur data, the PGA Tours ShotLink data, and newly developed golf analytics, Broadie shows professional and amateur golfers how to make better decisions on the course. This eagerly awaited resource is for every player who wants to assess and improve his or her unique abilities— and make every shot count.
