Playing The Percentages: The Mathematics of Golf

6 mins 2 yrs

After another fine round of golf spoiled on the last hole by an errant tee shot and the calamity that followed I wondered about the odds. Playing the percentages: The mathematics of golf might be the way to approach this issue. It is all too common to observe this kind of thing happening to competitive golfers. My playing partner Craig did the same thing last week stuffing up a good score on the final hole. Mito Pereira did it on the 72nd hole of a major at the US PGA Championship in 2022 at Southern Hills. Sahith Theegala did it this morning at the Travelers in Connecticut.
