Abstract

For many Professional Golfers success can be rare on the PGA Tour. Attaining membership on the PGA Tour is the pinnacle of most Professional Golfer’s careers. Many Professionals pursue and fail in the search for success on the PGA Tour at the expense of leaving their families and continual travelling. At the end of the day Professional Golf is a full time job, and while many earn millions every year, some players go week after week with no earnings from missing the Cut.

This dissertation will attempt to measure and predict what it takes to be successful on the PGA Tour by analysing data from Shotlink. The analysis and predictions will be completed through predictive analysis methods and various machine learning models. The expected results are intended to provide professional golfers with the key components of what it takes to be successful.

Additionally, the dissertation will also aim to answer several critical questions frequently asked among the world of golf.
