This column is in honor of the first anniversary of my late father’s death. In his last days, Dad enjoyed watching golf, and I’d often join him. Watching the recent British Open, I thought I would apply some basic statistical principles to the final scores.
For example, 83 people made the cut, and the ANOVA of their individual round scores is shown in figure 1.
The two ANOM plots are shown in figures 2 and 3.
