What is statistical correlation analysis
and what does it have to do with my golf game ?
Correlation analysis is a statistical
technique used to study how one type of data relates to another. In the
context of golf statistics, consider the data that golfers collect when they
play a round of golf. Many track greens hit in regulation, total putts, save
percentage etc. as well as their total score. The question we all ask is, how
relevant are these statistics to our final score ? Answering this question

that for them will have the greatest impact on their score and ultimately

these statistics and analyze them graphically. For example, when you plot
