New 'Tournament Winners by Round Rank' Page Added to Golf Predictor

Partial screenshot of 2013 US PGA Tour winners up to the US PGA Championship
Further to the recently added 'Results by Round Rank' functionality, a new 'Tournament Winners by Round Rank' page has been added to Golf Predictor. This new page is available from the Other Stats menu in the member section and shows the winner for each tournament in the chosen GP season with his ranking (position) after each round. This is shown in the screenshot above for the 2013 US PGA Tour up to the week of the US PGA Championship. Hovering over a player first name or the tournament name shows more information. This is shown above for Jordan Spieth, who came through the field impressively after being only 64th after round one. Incidentally, Kevin Streelman holds the record for coming through the field on the 2013 US PGA Tour. He was only 70th after round one in Tampa before coming through to win. Brett Rumford holds the corresponding record on the 2013 European PGA Tour, coming from 75th after round one to win the Ballantines Championship. Some notes on this new page:
  1. Round rankings are only shown for winners of knock out tournaments and 72 hole stroke play events. The round ranking columns will be blank for winners of all match play, Stableford and five round events (e.g. the Bob Hope Classic). This can be seen for the Reno-Tahoe Open in the screenshot above.
  2. Round rankings are shown for winners of 72 hole stroke play events that were shortened due to weather (or any other reason).
  3. Ties are not indicated for any round ranks.
  4. As shown in the screenshot above, the round ranking columns (R1R etc) on the results table have been colour coded. This will allow you to identify golfers who were leading (red), in top five (pink), in top ten (yellow), in top twenty (grey), in top forty (blue) and outside top forty (brown) much more easily. The colour code itself is shown over the results table.
  5. You can sort the winners by any column except score. 
  6. The winner round position pie charts (from the main Tournament Winners page) are also available on this new page as they are pertinent to this new round ranking information.
  7. You may have to reload your current Golf Predictor page to see this new menu option in the Other Stats menu.
Just another way to make Golf Predictor even better! This new page will allow you to track the progress of the season winners at a glance though the tournaments they won. However, only subscribers can see the data on this new page. So, sign up today and reap the full benefits of Golf Predictor, the premium professional golf statistics site.
