Last week's Numbers Game on Tiger and Phil was titled "Part One," so you knew more was coming. If you read the comments, you may have guessed what else was on its way. Erik suggested that averaging the entire field may show that Tiger plays the tougher fields, but that the numbers get a lot closer simply due to the fact that a PGA Tour field has 144 players, many of whom are ranked 300th or worse. Erik suggested that we look at the average rank of the top players in the field and the number of players ranked a certain rank or better.
I chose the number 30, so this week we'll look at the average rank of the top 30 players and the number of players ranked 30th or higher in the Official World Golf Ranking.
