New research published yesterday seems to contradict the research done previously by Dave Pelz. What gives? This puts Dave Pelz in a tough spot, will he release his data now? If he doesn’t, he runs the risk of losing credibility in the golf world. This will be interesting.

While this new research is hardly comprehensive and is a far cry from being strategically helpful, it does add to the body of work, which is great. The data is now more muddled than ever, but with more data comes a better chance we will really get an answer to the flagstick question. Let’s hope more will take up the flagstick battle cry and provide us with real research, transparent research that we can trust and can actually use to improve our chance of playing well.
