Both Sides of the Ball

Now think about the man who revolutionized the use of statistics in golf. That man is Mark Broadie, who joined Bo Van Pelt and Farrell Evans to explain strokes gained, the revolutionary tool that changed how the best players in the world evaluate their performance and strategy across various areas of their games. Sean Foley, who wrote the foreword to Broadie's book, Every Shot Counts, calls the Columbia Business School professor one of the most influential minds of the past 20 years in golf.
