What to make of large difference in course fit?

First off fantastic article on shot by shot course fit, loved it!

But at the end of it it comes out that Camilo and Phil and Hojgaard are penalized massively in this category, while in the older broader course fit, they are at the top benefiting it. I know the shot by shot didn’t include driving but it’s not totally clear can you just add the two together or which one really counts more?

Both adjustments are in units of strokes/round, so you could add them together. But that article was a lot of work, didn’t really have time to backtest anything to see if the course fit adjustments are actually predictive. Because they are a bit theoretical. Whereas the current course fit estimates are based on actual past correlations between player skills and performance.
