Prediction Data Page Enhanced - Field Rank

New Field Rank in each Category (Martin Kaymer: WGC-Cadillac Champ)

The 'Prediction Data' page for each golfer participating in a tournament has been enhanced with new field ranking information. This page is available from any of the prediction options on the "Stats Analysis" menu in the member section of Golf Predictor. As shown on the image* above for Martin Kaymer for last week's WGC - Cadillac Championship, there is a new "Field Rank" for each main statistic (season/last five events/course history/tournament history/similar tournament history/similar weather history and world ranking). Each of these new fields show the chosen golfer's ranking for the relevant statistic among the competing golfers in the field. The screenshot above shows that despite Kaymer's good season/last five events ranking, he had a relatively poor ranking for this course/tournament and WGC events in general.

Note that golfers with no relevant history are ignored in these rankings and ties are not indicated. Note also that you may have to refresh the page to see the changes. These new fields make it much easier to see a golfer's merits for a particular tournament. Just another way to make Golf Predictor even better!

*This image only shows a subset of all the statistics available on the page. The rest have been omitted for the sake of clarity (and quicker image download).
