Advancements in analytics and golf statistics have made it easier to predict the winners of golf tournaments. Variability still remains including psychological factors, how the weather impacts play and who simply cannot explain why they are playing so well. But for those tangibles, there may be a way to quantify who is in the best position to win. This study focuses on Predicting the Masters, and recently I spoke at SportCon, part of Minneanalytics in Minneapolis, about my statistical model for how I pick a winner.
