Quick question for matt or will:
How are the SG predictions derived on the sub tours page? I can’t imagine you’re doing course fit or anything for these tours, correct? Are you just taking basically each players true SG # and then simulating from there?
No course-specific adjustments, correct. So the predictions are just the sum of the first 4 columns on the skill decomposition page.
Is there a skill decompositon page for non-PGA events? On that link I only see players in the Valero field. Would be cool to see the decomposition of say, Bernhard Langer.
There aren’t for non-PGA/Euro/Opposite PGA events. Agree it would be a decent addition, but remember that for non-PGA/Euro players a lot of the adjustments we do aren’t possible (e.g. strokes-gained category adjustments are unimportant for guys who don’t play Shotlink events).
Yeah absolutely. Was more or less just curious what adjustments you ARE doing off a player like Langer’s true SG baseline without including SG categories, course history etc.)
