Amazing work Rich. Just a question, I have played Yahoo fantasy golf the last 6 years, where they put the players into 3 groups A, B, and C. You pick 2, 4, and 2, and start 1, 2, and 1. What metrics from your work would I use to get the best out if my line up. Also, you can only start a player ten times and them he's done.

Thanks, Ronnie.

It depends on the league setup. If they go by yearly earnings, I would recommend looking at players good in Adjusted Scoring Average and that play in a lot of events like Brendon de Jonge. I would favor somebody like that over a Retief Goosen who doesn't play in a lot of tournaments and you need to him to do well. But still, guys like Rory McIlroy, Tiger, etc. are still players you need to pick.

I would also look at players with big discrepancys in their Avg. Purse Size per Event versus Strength of Fields Played In. Guys who played in stronger fields but smaller purse size events AND performed well will likely improve because they will get into bigger purse events and they could perform well against stronger fields. In the opposite case Webb Simpson, I would be a bit sketchy.

Also, look at who is in the top-70 of the Money List. Those players get exemptions into the big purse Invitationals like the Memorial, Bay Hill, etc. I would check the main stats like DZ, Driving, Putts Gained and Short Game play. Somebody who finishes in in the top-100 in all of those categories and was inside the top-70 on the Money List may have more value than somebody who has a 'sexier' name like a Sean O'Hair, but struggled is some of those areas and was not in the top-70 in the Money List.

Hope that helps.
