So, I just heard the announcer mention something I wasn’t aware of. “This is one of the measuring holes.” So, apparently at each course, they determine the holes where virtually everyone is going to use driver, and try to find one going one direction on the course, and one coming back the other way, average them, and those are the only two holes used in DD statistics. Anyone ever heard of that? Makes sense to me, but I thought DD was every hole each golfer used driver on.
There are two stats, measured driving distance and all driving distance. Measured will follow the method you described and all will use whatever drives they laser. Strokes gained off the tee will use all drives as well
Just giddy about my showdown experiment. I put 12 golfers in my player pool and regardless of salary I made LU’s.
picked 3 for a core of 3 and then i played (Core 1x-1x-1x) 3x-3x-3x
average remaining salary 6277. Currently kicking it in the minimax with 3milly tix from dime qualifiers.
