Celebrating Links golf with a cut at -9... Where do we go from here?

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship Old Course St. Andrews, Carnoustie & Kingsbarns

On a regular Tour week, you have  one practice round and two cut rounds and then if you play to your normal standard which according to our science finding is between 2 and 6 under, you should be fine for the weekend cut and then build up the risks to hopefully get to a top 20 or if things goes your way a top 10.

When you play the Dunhill, things get a little longer/tougher as you then need three practice rounds and three more cut rounds not to forget the logistic time (the road trip and early wake up call) playing on three sites/demanding courses. This is all fine knowing that a top 20 will secure your yearly tournaments expenses of around 50'000 Euro and a win secure your life at St-Andrews heaven. 88 Tour caddies and players did not get to compete St-Andrews on Sunday... for this you had to score -9... #LifeOnTour can be tough even for Rory T26 at -15 and complains! 

Quotes from Rory: "I think if the European Tour wants to put forth a really good product, the golf courses and setups need to be tougher."

Caddie work is mostly numbers at least during the round... the only number you cant predict is the money one... 10% for a win... but as there is only one winner each week every other Caddies need to be patient and wait for his turn, I mean his Player turn.

Instead of waiting mine, I took the KLMOpen week (Exceptionally I was Caddying) to collect as many data as possible to better understand not only the performance of my Player Gaganjeet but also to see what all the numbers will show us. 

So all and all I collected Gaganjeet Bhullar's 287 shoots using four formats (DSI - Waggle - CaddieMaps - CaddiePlayer)

As a result, during the last round, we allready saw some benefits to finish the KLMOpen under par T60 and more importantly knowing better what to do next.

This is just the beginning...


Quotes from Gaganjeet Bhullar currently n.1 Indian golfer.

"Understanding data was not my cup of tea, but now I actually feel that it can bring a small change to my game"

Congratulations to Sergio Garcia for his 16th wins on the European Tour, not forgeting that he was mentioned in my putting science research back in 2011.

I personally handover the research to his wife Angela two weeks ago...
