Deep Dive Analysis of SlowCelica’s Golf Game

We profile our second TST member in this article by looking at eight of his GAME GOLF rounds, and we use a modified assessment technique from Lowest Score Wins.


The Numbers GameIn November 2016, we started a new feature where a volunteer steps forward and works with us to analyze a bunch of representative rounds to shed some light about their game. You can find the first article in the series here, with all the appropriate background on the goals of this series.

In this second article, we will take a close look into @SlowCelica’s game (from now on, referred to as SC). We will intentionally throw a lot of numbers at you, so if that is not your style, then there is no need to read on. There are lots of charts below, so if you want to just skim, you’ll likely get the gist. Later, we will create a thread in the discussion forum, where we can have a dialogue with SC about the analysis.

The point is to see what useful knowledge we can get from of the numbers, not to simply geek out with stats. We will also get a baseline of where SC stands now, and as we get deep into the season, we intend to check back in with SC to see how his game progressed.

With the help of GAME GOLF, we take a look at a forum member’s game and where he can save strokes.

The Numbers GameIntroduction
We are starting a new feature where a volunteer steps forward every so often and allows a statistical deep dive into their most recent rounds. All we expect in return is that they diligently work on the areas that we identify as their biggest problems.

The purpose is to show how we can use GAME GOLF (GG) and the principles in Section 2 of Lowest Score Wins (LSW), “Building Your PracticePlan,” to move our games forward. We will:

  1. delve into the data provided from the GG rounds,
  2. use LSW as a framework to discuss areas of the player’s game that need improvement, and
  3. suggest very specific ways to go about lowering their scores.

One issue we foresee is: based on past experience and knowledge, it is extremely likely that we will all be the same: fix our full swings!
