With strokes gained Broadie was able to set the data straight by placing it in proper context. It allowed him to measure a player’s performance against the rest of the field while providing an isolated view of specific aspects of their game.
And beyond that his ability to make birdies is all-world. Finau is ranked 11th on the PGA Tour in birdie average and sixth in eagle average. He made the cut in every major and finished in the top 10 at the first three.
Again I stand with Joe. It’s a sensible and needed rule. It’s odd that the person who got caught in its netting is the most affable well-rounded and caring player among the big names. But even Spieth must understand that a rule is a rule and this is a needed one.
