(A collection of data used to predict the most likely outcomes for each weeks event)
Since it’s a new season, I will explain “The Sheet” and how I come up with these rankings.

Odds:1 = Odds to win outright, ie Harold Varner III is 29:1 this week so a $1 bet would net $29
Recent SG & Results = Strokes Gained (Total)* from each event played in the past six weeks, added together to produce a final SG number. The next few columns are the actual results from those events (this week there are only five results because no one in this weeks field played in last weeks Tour Championship)
Course SG & Results = Same as above, but from the past five iterations of this weeks event. If the tournament is being held at a different course, these numbers will not go into the final rankings (due to irrelevancy) but will still be shown on the sheet
Form Rank = Ranking of the players in the field by Recent Strokes Gained
Course Rank = Ranking of the players in the field by Course SG
Stats Rank = Ranking of the players in the field based on course-specific categories (done through
Sim Rank = Ranking of the players in the field from the “Simulator” on
Overall = Form Rank + Course Rank + Stats Rank + Sim Rank/4 gives an average number of the ranked categories, which I then put in order to give me my final Overall rankings
+/- from Odds = Difference between my final rankings and the bookmakers odds ranking of the field. Good way to determine value bets

*Explanation of Strokes Gained from
Strokes gained: total simply compares a player’s score to the field average. For example, a player will gain three strokes on the field if he shoots 69 on a day when the field averages 72. A player who shoots 74 on that day loses two strokes to the field

My Top 5 This Week (+ Odds to Win)
1 – Harold Varner III (+2900)
2 – Chez Reavie (+3500)
3 – Cameron Davis (+3500)
4 – Adam Schenk (+10000)
5 – Shane Lowry (+2600)
Unless otherwise noted, I will place 0.5 Units on each of my Top-5 Players to Win outright, and 1 full unit on each of my head-to-head matchups. For the 2021 Season I will be tracking units as well as my overall records
