The Koepka Conundrum

Red-eyed #MathMondays is up. – The incredible putting turnaround of @andrewlgolf in winning @theamexgolf. – Mad respect for the HoF resume of @WestwoodLee. – The @BKoepka SG differential conundrum pic.twitter.com/9QwH8SqCV6 — Will Haskett (@willhaskett) January 20, 2020 One of the nuggets I tackled this week is something I continue to come back to when it […]

New year, new content. Welcome to the world of #MathMondays, golf edition. Quick look at 🔥 trends of JT, Rahm and Xander. (I am still hibernating, FYI) pic.twitter.com/UuNdhnbEs7 — Will Haskett (@willhaskett) January 6, 2020 Holy blog-less existence, Batman! This site was never intended to be a click grabber.

Influence

When I set out to muddy the golf podcast waters a little bit more last year, I wanted my stain to be just a little different from all the rest. Why create something that is merely a cheap facsimile of what is already out there?! As many are well aware, while I am a stats/numbers […]

2k18YE

I don’t blog enough. That’s an obvious statement based on the sporadic nature of content on this site, which is, ironically, the root of the problem discussed below. Earlier this year, I launched a podcast. If you’re one of the five people reading this blog, you probably know this. What you may not know is […]

Episode Seven – Evolution

I don’t think anybody would be surprised to hear that the professional game of golf is rapidly changing. It is bigger, faster, more athletic, stronger, more precise and a much bigger business. While many in the game blame the ball, it’s really much more than that. Paul Stankowski won twice on the PGA Tour, in […]

Episode Six – Golf Media

This was a tough one to approach because of how embedded in the golf “media” I am and not wanting to be too much of a homer or critic. I don’t think there is a sport that struggles with how to appeal to a wide range of audiences quite like golf. That isn’t a criticism […]
