U Gusta, Ga. (Reuters) – According to one of Golf’s premier data crunchers, Bryson de Cumby has the potential to bring Augusta National to its ornamental knee in this week’s Masters.
Former tour pro Scott Fawcett is little known to casual golf followers, but tour players have a special understanding of him, especially the younger breed is more open to using analytics than the younger breed traditionalists.
Fawcett PGA analyzes in detail the best way to avoid each hole on the tour, and provides it to any player interested.
And he does so without setting foot on any road. Instead, he dug a hole in the Google Earth and Tour Shotlink statistics and mapped out the best game plan called Deckdade from his course management system.
He knew De Chembue before he later became a professional, and in September the U.S. The way the player won the Winged Foot to win in the open was hardly surprising.
De Chembo smashed his drives from a great distance and even when he strayed from the turn and felt a long rough he usually had an approach to the muscle in the vicinity of the green from which he could have escaped, or better yet.
If DeChembu has another great week with his driver at Driver Gusta, it won’t be a fair fight, Fawcett believes.
“There are very few people who can compete with him if he runs it well,” Fawcett told Reuters in a telephone interview.
“You’re not going to run it like you did every day at the US Open. But if you do, it’s invincible because of how short the rest of the course is.”
Fuchset, who is in regular contact with DeChambu coach Chris Como, says the most effective way to deal with a hole in general is to be bold with the driver and be more secure with shots reaching the greens.
He said, “I don’t like to use offensive or rude words, because it’s emotional.” “I like to tell the truth from mathematics.”
He points out that De Chambeu takes his driver faster than anyone on tour in the short term, his clubhead traveling at an average speed of 133 mph in contact with the ball this season.
Fawcett saw T Chambu hit plenty of three woods from the tee at the PGA Championship at Harding Park in May, and observed that it was not a good strategy.
In Fawcett’s analysis, three woods is always a bad idea. De Chembe listened for the US Open, changed his approach, and got plenty of returns.
“You can hit five-six percent more rounds but you’re giving up 30 yards on 100 percent of your T shots which is just bad math,” Fawcett said.
For those who think that the strategy of smashing Dembu’s drives at almost every opportunity will take the artist out of the game, Fawcett has the answer.
“It’s very difficult to just take the driver and swing it as hard as you can and hold it solid and straight.”
“The guy is doing it just like anyone else on the planet right now.”
