    A couple of questions here….

    1) is there anywhere you’re aware of to get putting splits by grass type for free?
    2) Do you literally upload your noto-ratings as fantasy pt projections when making lineups? I’ve noticed the RG projects are highly sensitive to whether or not a golfer is over 50% to make the cut, which makes sense from a “median” standpoint, but seems awfully sensitive..
    3) I look at recent form in terms of DK pts ranks instead of finishing position on a given week, do you think theres any value here or just wasting my time?

    1. Not that I’m aware of at the moment, although @PGASplits101 on Twitter has some great splits he puts out each week.

    2. Yes, I use the ratings as my projections. Obviously, I don’t rely on them 100% and will naturally bump up ownership to golfers that I like that don’t necessarily rate out well.

    3. DK scoring over finishing position makes sense to me. Just always keep in mind field strength.

    When you do your long, mid and short form ratings, do you use total strokes gained or finishing position?

    I use strokes gained per round compared to the field rather than raw finishing position. A golfer finishing T30 in a 50-man field shouldn’t get the same credit as a golfer that finishes T30 in a 156-man event.
