    Hello Forum of experts,
    I have been asked to use Six Sigma to analyze golf scores – I have multiple scorecards with the all the key information (Weather, club etc..)   I am not sure what type of statistical tests I need to run?   I need to propose a way of improving the score based on my statistical findings….help will be appreciated….
    Thanks
    Jessica

    Jessica:Golf is always a popular application for DOE. You can find a variety of ideas on the information super roadway. Here is one from the modern day father of DOE.http://mars-lab.eas.asu.edu/pubs/D.C.Montgomery-ASU.pdfCheers, BTDT

    Basic statistics – analyzes the current distribution of scores
    Control Chart – shows whether scores are getting better, worse or staying the same
    Hypothesis Testing – Are there differences in scores as a result of golf course played, hole played, type of club used, etc.
    Regression – is there a relationship between temperature, wind speed, gallons of beer consumed, etc. and score.
    DOE- will be good once you identify the potential Xs which help drive score.  You will setup the experiment to determine what combination of factors will minimize your score.

    Jessica,
    These two guys are good (keep an eye on Darth even if its out of the corner of your eye) but if you want the master of golf analysis you need to talk to Evan Miller at Hertzler Systems. He lives in Goshen, Indiana so he is always happy when anyone talks to him – that is the part of Indiana where they believe popcorn is an important crop – lots of bow ties. Evan has this great booth that he takes to conferences that has video cameras and all types of measurement systems that can almost make you swing the way you should. It is great – in just about 20 swings they had improved my swing to where I could actually make contact with the ball.
    Good luck

    Jessica,
    Scroll to the bottom of this page abd the add for Hertzler Systems is the fourth box from the bottom. Click and it drops you through cyber bunny hole and amazingly enough you wake up in Indiana.
    Good luck.

    Dear Jessica,
    We must implore you to refrain from posting or providing your email address to George.  This is exactly what lead to the last ….unfortunate….. incident. 
    We believe in giving new parolees reasonable time, a fair chance, and even a few small mistakes as they try to reintegrate into society;  But a cactus asked to spew forth a river can become only an empty cactus.  I beg you — give George a fair chance. 
    Sincerely,
    Bert Romano

    Remember a while back when Rubber Duck had this thing going with the Swiss yoldler babe?  Thought that was going to be serious.

    Here is a contact.  I am a 1 handicap and have used the Six Sigma tools to improve help my game.  I conversed with Mr. Schiestel a few years back on the subject.  He and his son Duane have done a lot of work in this area.

    Relax Chris; Jess just wants someone to analyze the data she has so she can turn it in; not improve her 7 iron game.

    Jess,
    I am a Six Sigma Master Black Belt and I just walked one of my BBs through this exact same analysis yesterday, ironically.  Shoot me an email and I’ll take you through this.  Out of curiosity, what’s your comfort level with stats/Minitab right now?

    Hi Chris
    I run across this thread from a Google search, and yes we have done a ton of work in integrating Six Sigma with Elite Development in Golf.  I have a bunch of stuff posted on my web site but waiting for Moderator Approval before I post the site details.  I want to ensure I don’t break any of the rules.  I am also sending you some information via mail tomorrow so you should receive it late next week.  It is our laminated golf print [cause & effect diagram], which distils the whole game down to a single page.
    Thanks Harry [myGolfDNA]
