Most/Least Consistent Golfers on the 2010 European/US PGA Tours

Using the standard deviation (SD) information in Golf Predictor, it is possible to see who were the most/least consistent performers in the 2010 season on the European/US PGA Tours. Of those who played a full season of events*, it's all change from the same list for the 2009 season. Tiger Woods loses his place in the list entirely, thanks to his poor form, especially at the Quail Hollow Championship and the WGC - Bridgestone Invitational. Steve Stricker takes over the mantle of most consistent golfer of the season in his place. The top five consistent golfers in 2010 were:

#NameSt DevAve. Pos.Played
1Steve Stricker18.6520.7419
2Gregory Bourdy19.7131.3928
3Peter Hanson20.4025.8323
4Michael Campbell22.56119.9420
5Joost Luiten23.6631.0027

Note that Michael Campbell's season was consistently very bad, which is a shame for a former major winner. At the other end of the scale, the top five most inconsistent golfers in 2010 were:

#NameSt DevAve. Pos.Played
1James Morrison53.6776.1127
2Brett Rumford52.4859.4022
3Oliver Fisher52.2375.3126
