Palmer4Ever posted a topic in Geek ZoneFirst of all: I'm not a golf expert by any means, if anything, I'm a newbie. So, when I make the assessment that data science has not reached the golf industry, I might not have all the facts, I'm just reproducing what it looks to be the pattern from the outside and as someone who is familiar with the data revolution in baseball, basketball, and football. I also just finished the book: "Everybody Lies Big Data, New Data and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are", a great book on data science in general, not only in sports, so the topic is very vivid on my mind. How much of the Moneyball revolution has transpired to the world of golf? Are we valuing players and predicting tour results better in the face of big data? If you are into this, I would love to learn more and know your opinion on this matter. Also, if I am completely wrong, I am ready to learn about the advanced quantitative methods used in golf today. Thanks!
