In this edition of Data Nuggets, we decided to look at the different handicaps by state and region within our community of golfers. Have you ever thought about how your home state average handicap compares with other states in America? Or even with different age groups?
In order to break down the data, we elaborated two graphs in an effort to picture the answers to these questions. The first one shows the average handicap by state as well as by region and the second one just lays out the handicap performance by age group.
Take a look at the map below and locate your home state; zoom in and compare the average handicap to other states around you or even those located in other regions of the country.
We can definitely spot a difference between states that is even clearer when comparing the average handicap by region. But, why are these changes so noticeable? Can it be due to seasonality?
Go ahead and take a look at the graph below and compare the handicap performance between the different age groups.
These are simply assumptions we could make by looking at the data.
