Others operating in a similar mindset include the Molinari brothers Francesco and Edoardo Jordan Spieth’s swing guru Cameron McCormick and Rickie Fowler’s caddie Joe Skovron to cite a few of the many with whom Broadie has worked.
As for future projections for golf analytics Broadie sees nearly boundless opportunity for exploration limited only by the availability of good data. One area he has in mind is strokes-gained categories that account for factors such as wind turf conditions and the contours of a shot.
The more golf Broadie played the more the game presented him with questions for which he had no answers. To find them he was certain he needed data. And golf data in those days wasn’t merely scarce. It was nonexistent.
