Statistics in golf can yield great benefits

Following up on our sports-related posts a few months back, the golf fan in me loved this article. Now I can tell my wife I have to watch golf for work.

In response to such trends, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan Sports Analytics Conference held the first Golf Analytics panel in the conference's 5-year history to discuss potential applications of advanced statistical analysis in golf. We've seen numbers-crunchers change baseball, basketball, and football. Golf could be next.
