    If you guys are interested in learning about the advanced stats I highly recommend looking up Mark Brodie. He developed the Strokes Gained stat.

    Listen to the No Laying Up posdcast #135 from 4/23/18. Brodie is the guest and they have a really great, interesting discussion about stats.

    Would love to know pointers on how to best utilize this spreadsheet as well.

    I created a few columns out to the right to take a few averages (in a copy I downloaded). Average all, average last 5 weeks, average 10 weeks, etc. Then just sort those a few times and find some consistencies.

    I’m just making sure I didn’t miss taking a look at anyone in about the top 15 of those for my player pool

    That’s probably the best way to use it. Keep in mind though that it should be a weighted average, not a straight average. Some tournaments have more head-to-head matchups than others. A good proxy for the weight would be the number of players in this week’s field who played in that prior tournament. So the weights would be 71, 44, 94, etc.

    Lineup Builder says it can only make 44 lineups with my player pool and percentages, so I guess that’s what I’ll be rolling with in the 150 max quarters! These high stakes are so exciting I can hardly contain myself

    Yea, and you could also apply more weights to the more recent weeks, as an element of recent form. Thanks for posting the spreadsheet. Neat analysis

    I’m playing Jim Furyk this week and I feel great about it.

    can you talk to me about why you like furyk? thanks

  • mitchsnyderdfw

    I have so many Rose/Spieth LU’s I really like. So easy to fit them together this week.

    Each week I look at head-to-head matchups on the same course, same day against only the players in this week’s field. This week there are over 151k individual matchups within the last 13 weeks. The prior tournaments with the most data (highest field similarity) are Players [23k] and Arnold Palmer Invitational [19k].

    Quick glance at this and it just looks like Strokes Gained expect the math is inverted. Am i missing something?

  • Gathon11

    If you make 20 lineups, how many cores do you have? Just one and plug in 1 different guy for each lineup? or multiple cores?

    It’s a more refined strokes gained. The standard SG is against the full field in the event, whereas his spreadsheet is Strokes gained against only those players who are also in the field this week, so it shows more closely the relative performance of this specific field

    An intersting take on the statistic

    Personally, I lock 2 or 3 and spread out like 10-15 other players around 50%

    Former winner. Yes almost 2 decades but he has held himself to a limited schedule. THe course is long but not to the extent that it would overpower Furyk. Lastly I’m a fan, I’ve always liked him.

    cjs99, I sent you a private message in RG.

    Patiently awaiting a forecast for the weather as we get closer to thursday because my current team is heavily back loaded with the PM/AM wave so hoping I don’t have to flip things around based on the weather

    Approach shot to 14’ on the fringe counts as 0 GIR, where it will not be negative SG approach on average.

    You can get your Tiger vs Stenson @ +105

    For sure, you never know, it could be either or combo of both, or a Summerhays win, and Glover 3rd.

    Watching the GC… Them young guys have some nice cloths… Curious, what would you expect to pay for a day on the course, OUTFIT wise… Pants, SHirt, Belt, hat, shoes… Guess $500.00 sounds reasonable

    Scott has his new putter, toss up, he can put with it until it is trouble. Think the confidence factor is huge
