Mark, your post raises an issue that bothers me regarding a lot of posts on GCA: When we discuss holes and strategy, are we talking about the .001% of golfers that play golf for a living on the Tours? Or are we talking about the amateurs who make up most golfers? And if we are talking about amateurs, are we looking at Scratch players or 18 handicaps? There is a big difference in the games of golfers. And analysis needs to clearly identify which group we are talking about.
I was surprised to read that players choosing to go for the green on the 10th at Riviera are a cumulative 481 UNDER par since 2003 versus 31 OVER par for players who choose to lay up.
Riviera 10 question:. Can the 12 .handicapper hit the green from 90 yards? Seems like low percentage shot.
