"Broadie [is] a devoted golfer with his fingertips on a wealth of golf information" — New York Times


"How much do distance and accuracy matter in golf?  Mark Broadie’s new approach provides compelling and sometimes surprising answers to these and other questions at the heart of golf.” 
—Mark King, CEO TaylorMade Golf Company
"Mark Broadie brings new insights to the ShotLink data set and uses that data to enhance understanding of both the professional as well as the amateur game. His analysis will surprise both avid golfers and laymen alike."
—Steve Evans, CIO PGA TOUR

Praise for Mark Broadie:

“Broadie is the pioneer of the strokes-gained approach to PGA Tour statistics … Players are taking notice.” 

“Broadie [is] a devoted golfer with his fingertips on a wealth of golf information.” 
The New York Times

 “An absolutely fantastic book!  It could change the way people play the game.”
—Edoardo Molinari, European Ryder Cup star

"Broadie is the pioneer of the strokes-gained approach to PGA Tour statistics…Players are taking notice." —

Thanks to his golf shot database, Broadie was able to do away with the old-fashioned, simplistic stats we hear about on TV and figure out how the game is truly played. Just as baseball's statistical pioneers overthrew the tyranny of ERA and RBI by developing more meaningful metrics, Broadie saved golf from GIR with a concept called "shot value…Broadie's analysis helps us answer a question that it's never really been possible to solve before: How do you accurately compare one player with another? — Slate

Présentation de l'éditeur

Columbia Business School professor Mark Broadie’s paradigm-shifting approach that uses statistics and golf analytics to transform the game. 
Mark Broadie is at the forefront of a revolutionary new approach to the game of golf.  What does it take to drop ten strokes from your golf score? What part of Tiger Woods’ game makes him a winner? Traditional golf stats can't answer these questions. Broadie, a professor at Columbia Business School, helped the PGA Tour develop its cutting-edge strokes gained putting stat. In this eye-opening new book, Broadie uses analytics from the financial world to uncover the secrets of the game of golf. He crunches mountains of data to show both professional and amateur golfers how to make better decisions on the course.  This eagerly awaited resource is for any player who wants to understand the pros, improve golf skills, and make every shot count.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Better than expected 24 mars 2014
Par Marc R. Halley - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have great respect for Mark Broadie's research, and highly anticipated this book. It's better than expected.

Using new analytic methods (for golf at least), the book comes up with several major points about scoring and shot making. Interesting, the early work of Cochran and Stobbs (1971) came up with some of the same conclusions.

1) Long game approach shots are most important.
2) Long driving (as long as fairly straight) is better than short and straight.
3) 4 foot putts are the most important putt. Practice these.
4) You don't make many putts outside of 5 feet.
5) Short game is less important than long game.
6) Stay far away from out of bounds, even aim in the rough.
7) Make sure your putts go past the hole.
8) Sand shots are harder than chips.
9) Get as close to the hole as you can, do not play to a "good yardage".

So, for the amateur or pro golfer, what are the takeaways?

1) Practice your irons and hybrids
2) Try to bash it off the tee
3) Practice 4 foot putts.
4) Practice chipping only if you really stink.

What is Dave Pelz to do about this new data? Try to ignore it, it contradicts his preaching.

What am I supposed to do about this new data? Get better at irons. Hit it 20 yards farther. Make 4 footers.
Easy to say, harder to do.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Golf By the Numbers, Numbers, and More Numbers 16 mars 2014
Par David Donelson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Should you go for the green or lay up? Putt aggressively or die the ball into the hole? Who scores better, a good driver or a good putter? Quantitative researcher Mark Broadie, a professor at Columbia Business School, member of the USGA handicap research team, and former club champion at Pelham CC, applied the same rigorous statistical methods used by Wall Street’s quants to the game of golf to find the answers to these and other major questions of golf strategy. You’ll be surprised at the answers as he reports them in Every Shot Counts.

Even though there is a foreword by Sean Foley, this is NOT a book about how to swing a golf club.

It is rather an extremely detailed analysis of the game using a measure Broadie developed, "strokes gained." You may have heard the term used on PGA telecasts, particularly in the context of "strokes gained putting," but Broadie has expanded the concept to cover nearly aspect of golf using data from the PGA Tour's ShotLink database as well as one he developed to gather similar data for amateurs, the Golfmetrics system. The result is about as easy to read as a set of IRS instructions, but just like slogging through the tax code, if you stick with it, it will pay off.

I won't go into all the details of how he reached his conclusions, but suffice it to say Broadie convinced me that many of the "truths" about golf I heard and believed for decades are just flat wrong. "Drive for show--putt for dough," for example. WRONG! Broadie's analysis shows that tee shots account for 28% of the shots gained in a round as opposed to putting's mere 17%.

How can that be, you might ask, if putts represent about 50% of your strokes in a round? The answer is that Broadie is comparing performance to the field of golfers, not to par. If you're playing competitive golf, whether on Tour or against your buddies at your local muni, your score relative to theirs will be more strongly affected by your driving than your putting.

That's not the real surprise, though. Broadie's most important conclusion is that the approach shot--not your drive, not your putts, not even your dazzling wedge play--is the most important factor in the game when it comes to beating your opponents. The approach accounts for a whopping 40% of the strokes gained on the field.

Add in the drive, and 68% of the strokes gained can be traced to the long game. This is based, by the way, on his stroke-by-stroke analysis of the top 40 pros during the 2004-2012 seasons. Interestingly enough, Broadie's research shows that the same ratios hold for amateurs at every level, too!
"Contrary to popular belief, this research proves that the long game explains two-thirds of the difference in scores between beginning and skilled amateurs, between amateurs and pros, and between average pros and the best pros. Academics call this a robust result: It holds for many different groups of golfers. It's the closest thing to a universal truth in golf."
Laying up to a full-swing wedge distance is another truism that Broadie proves is a "falsism." Haven't we all been taught that the key to a good lay up is to not necessarily hit it as close to the green as you can but rather to a distance where you can take a full swing with your favorite wedge? Here's what Broadie's research revealed:
"...most golfers will score worse from 80 yards from the hole than from 30, even if every layup to 30 yards lands in the rough, and every layup to 80 yards lands in the fairway."
Actually, I've been a believer in taking my chances with a half-wedge for several years, but felt like I was violating some rule or something every time I did it. Now I know I have been right all along--and the feeling is excellent.

If you can slog through the numbers, Every Shot Counts may well change the way you think about your game. Broadie spends a good portion of the book applying his analysis to strategic choices like where to aim when there's out-of-bounds on the hole and how to read and putt greens. He's got a section on drills, too, although some are perhaps not for the math-impaired.

Even if you need to take off your socks to calculate your winnings on a round-robin Nassau with three presses, you'd be well-advised to spend some time working on your game with Broadie's numbers in mind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Shots Gained Putting (and other parts of the game): Every Shot Counts 18 septembre 2014
Par Skip. Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Really a cool book! I'm a statistician by trade and had wondered what this "Strokes Gained Putting" stat was that was constantly being referred to on the TV broadcasts. The book makes it clear and also explains the other elements of the game (driving, approaches, short game) and the stats created for them. i suspect that the TV guys don't use them because it isn't simple to understand (either they don't know how to explain it or are afraid that their audience would be confused if they tried). The content in this book has forced me to look at what parts of my game need work, shown me how to improve those and enlightened me on this new stat. For those of you that are statistically inclined, the author has used pretty sophisticated statistics to develop the stats and has rigorously verified the results. I especially like the components of variation theme used to describe a round of golf (the author uses Dynamic Programming in lieu of COV).

Every Shots Counts is a must read if you want to be a golfer. I will change the way i train golf. After using a lot of time putting and short game, I will train more driver and rescue club. According to the book, this is where the middle handicapper gains most.

Conventional wisdom has turned out to be wrong, or at least misleading, in so many sports. Golf has been late to the party when using rigorous data metrics. This book explains it all.
