Most/Least Consistent Golfers on the 2012 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 2012 season on the European/US PGA Tours*. It's all change from previous seasons, with Ian Poulter taking over at the top of the list. The top five consistent golfers in 2012 were:

#NameSt DevAve. Pos.Played
1Ian Poulter19.4524.3523
2John Senden20.6328.6825
3Francesco Molinari20.8224.9626
4Dustin Johnson21.9625.6021
5Matt Kuchar22.7823.3923

All of these golfers were consistently good, with very little between all five. At the other end of the scale, the top five most inconsistent golfers in 2012 were:

#NameSt DevAve. Pos.Played
1Paul Casey54.0489.9122
2Tim Clark50.7558.9521
3Scott Brown50.6491.2624
4Scott Stallings48.8271.9227
5Oliver Fisher48.5576.4523

While it is surprising to see two biggish names at the top of this list, it should be noted that both suffered with injuries. Click on the "Lists" category opposite to see more such lists.

*Only golfers who played at least 15 events are included in this analysis.
