'Compare Golfer Form' Page Added to Golf Predictor

Form Comparison for the Big Four in their Last Ten Events Prior to the 2011 European PGA Tour Season Finale in Dubai

I am delighted to announce the addition of the very useful new 'Compare Golfer Form' page to Golf Predictor. As can be seen from the screenshot above, this new page is similar in structure to the existing 'Compare Golfers' page and is available from the same menu ('Stats Analysis'). However, there are a number of differences and other points of interest:
  1. The 'Compare Golfers' page compares statistics (e.g. season and historical averages), while not showing any actual results. Users have to click on the 'Prediction Data' page for each golfer in turn to see actual results. In contrast, this new page shows the last ten results for each compared golfer in the same table for easy comparison of recent form.
  2. As can be seen above, there is a new drop down box to select the recent form of interest. The options are "All Tournaments", "Historical (Course/Tournament)" and Similar (Reg./Major/WGC/FedEx). Thus, you can easily compare golfer results for the last ten events in each of these important scenarios.
  3. If a golfer does not have ten results since 2003, "-" is displayed in the relevant table cells.
  4. The most recent tournament result is on the right hand side (T10), while the oldest is on the left (T1).
  5. For better legibility and easier trend spotting, the golfer results are colour coded. The colour code is displayed above the table for your convenience.
  6. As before, hovering over a player name displays more information. On this page, it displays the number of results in each category (wins/top tens/missed cuts/non-finishes) out of the (up to) ten matching results. In addition, you can hover over any result to see what tournament it was achieved in. Both these pop-ups are displayed in the composite screenshot above.
  7. You can only sort by the first three columns (first name, last name and prediction rank).

Just another way to make Golf Predictor even better for the new 2012 season ahead! This new page is a terrific addition to the site and will greatly assist in choosing between golfers for an event. The screenshot above shows the form comparison (their last ten events) for the big four ahead of the 2011 European PGA Tour Season Finale. As can be seen, they had an impressive four victories and nineteen other top tens between them in their combined forty events leading up to Dubai. Indeed, three of them were coming off victories in their previous event.

Note that you may have to reload your current Golf Predictor page to see this new "Compare Form" menu option. All users can see this form comparison for golfers they can access. For subscribers, this means all golfers in the system while for non-subscribers, it means golfers ranked 11-25 in the prediction rankings. So, sign up today and reap the full benefits of Golf Predictor, the premium professional golf statistics site.
