2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational model and fantasy golf rankings



For years, I've made fantasy golf picks, power rankings and given betting tips about PGA Tour events.

I've looked at two main factors, current form and course history, and tried to bring those together to offer selections and my best guess as to who will contend in a given week.

However, for 2020, I wanted to become more sophisticated and develop a weekly rubric which offers a clear-cut ranking system based on data points weighted in a formula. I've spent the first few weeks of the year parsing through Alpha-phase rubrics, and now I'm ready to move to the Beta phase, which includes showing the results off to GNN Plus members each week.

I'm going to continue working on this rubric, and I hope to have it where I want it for the Masters. Let me walk you through the rubric's tenets and show off this week's results.
