Praise

“Broadie is the pioneer of the strokes-gained approach to PGA Tour statistics…Players are taking notice.”
– ESPN.com
Thanks to his golf shot database, Broadie was able to do away with the old-fashioned, simplistic stats we hear about on TV and figure out how the game is truly played. Just as baseball’s statistical pioneers overthrew the tyranny of ERA and RBI by developing more meaningful metrics, Broadie saved golf from GIR with a concept called “shot value…Broadie’s analysis helps us answer a question that it’s never really been possible to solve before: How do you accurately compare one player with another?

“Broadie [is] a devoted golfer with his fingertips on a wealth of golf information”
– New York Times
