Check out this week’s top 30 fantasy golf rankings for the Travelers Championship. Below you will find a breakdown of Taylor’s (@Sgrignoli3) rankings model for TPC River Highlands, including: course stats, current form, course history and prestige ranking. I also included my picks of the week for the Travelers.
Rankings Model Breakdown
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 the Travelers Championship include:
- Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
- Strokes Gained: Approach
- Birdie or Better
- Bogey Avoidance
- Par 4 Scoring: 400-450 yards
“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 40%), current form (weighted at 25%), course history (weighted at 5%), and prestige rank (weighted at 30%).
