hey guys I want to get a discussion going. Whenever you are looking at 3rd and 4th round match ups what are some of the stats you look at from the previous rounds?

Example 1 player A  is -4
                  player B  is -4

Which player  would you expect to do better going forward, the guy who has previously hit many greens in regulation but putted bad or the guy who missed many greens but putted extremely well to get up and in a lot?

Out of putting/chipping    vs.  ball striking- which is easier to fix/improve on the next round?

I tend to think the guy who has been putting better can fix a swing flaw and hit more greens the next round.

I look a lot at their past performance in that round, and I like to look at, for example:  how did they do in rd3 after going low in rd2 or vice versa.  I also use SGP, but I don't really look at player A's SGP vs player B's - I look at each players SGP vs their own average.  If one of them is coming off a round where they putted way better than their avg, then I like to fade them. 

I use a pay site that also gives me head-to-head history.  I use that very heavily.

oh thanks for the response blairaj, would you mind sharing the site you use? 

is there a way to find out how a player has scored when paired with a certain player?

for some reason I want to fade guys paired with Crane Woods and Furyk, LOL!

tour-tips.com

And, on there you can look up 2 individuals paired with each other.  But, I don't think you can search on "all pairings with Furyk", it'd have to be "Furyk v X"

Doesn't it seem crazy that it took so long for someone to improve on the old way of deteriming the best putters , simply by how many putting strokes they took per round.  That always seemed so blatently silly, but yet it took forever (in todays world of sports statistics) to address it..   Then again, I guess if I was really bothered by it, I would have taken the time to figure one out for myself, so maybe I should put a lid on it.

Myself I look at past performances on the course they are playing.. In golf like no other sport "its horses for courses" some layouts just flat out fit some golfers game better then others .. Also if a player goes really  low the previous round like to play against him the next round.. Tough to go back to back low in golf most of the time.. Its a mind thing for the most part.. IMO...
