Off to San Francisco, it’s the PGA Tour’s first Major of 2020, the PGA Championship. TPC Harding Park is hosting the event. It’s only the second time the course is home for a PGA stroke play event since Tiger Woods defeated John Daly in 2005.

Back then, who would have thought Tiger was the wild one of the two?

Since the public course isn’t on the PGA’s regular rotation, track specific data is not available. So, I did a virtual tour online; read a story with Google Earth images showing how the maintenance crew narrowed fairways and their shapes; analyzed the scorecard, watched a foursome play five TPC Harding Park holes on YouTube, and came to the conclusion that accurate bombers off the tee will have the edge.

I created a course-specific, driving efficiency score. The idea is to identify golfers that are likely to put the ball in the fairway, far from the tee-box. It should give the top ranked players an advantage on some of the course’s long par fours and the two par fives.

Of course, we still use the rest of our super-duper, secret reversion and projected scoring models to finalize our rankings.
