    Golf Stats Research Project Idea - Need Help
    I am currently enrolled in a quantitative methods class and my Professor is having us conduct small, semester-long research reports relating to business, organizations, and/or society, and I would love to be able to use the regular golf stats found online to do this project.

    I am brainstorming ideas but am thinking along the lines of "Do higher prize funds/purses necessarily contribute to higher performance by the field of players, on average, on the PGA Ryder Cup" or something like that.

    It definitely does not have to be that exact idea, but if anyone can think of something interesting that can be derived from common stats found online week-to-week, that would be fantastic.

    This is a quantitative project, so following previous research done about the challenge of the game of golf, or the effects of golf skills in regards to....etc. would not be viable options.

    Thank you very, very much!
