Another Masters has come and gone. Now, we get back to business as usual (aka boring-ass tournaments) beginning with the RBC Heritage. Below is a breakdown of Taylor’s (@Sgrignoli3) rankings formula, course stats for Harbour Town, and this week’s top 30 fantasy golf rankings.
Rankings Model and Course Stats
The “Course Stats Rank” incorporates a wide range of player statistics, each individually weighted. This range includes the past 4, 8, 12, 24, 50 and 100 rounds played.
This week’s weighted course statistics for RBC Heritage include:
- Strokes Gained: Approach
- Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
- Birdie or Better Gained
- Greens in Regulation Gained
- Bogey Avoidance
- Strokes Gained: Par 4
“Current Form Rank” is derived from the average number of Strokes Gained: Total per tournament played this season.
“Course History Rank” is derived from the average number of Strokes Gained: Total per year played at this event/course. *Several players may not have course history so their course history weight percentage has been shifted to current form.
The “Prestige Rank” column was back-tested and has consistently shown positive results. “Prestige Rank” is derived from a combination of current Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) and Vegas odds to win the week’s event.
The “PAS Power Index” is generated by calculating and combining the categories mentioned above: course stats (weighted at 45%), current form (weighted at 25%), course history (weighted at 5%) and prestige rank (weighted at 25%).
