Henna, Eveliina, and other women in Finland play in FPO but all divisions play from same tees. It is pretty rare to have multiple tees in courses in Finland (alternate baskets is more common but don't remember any tournament where they switched placements middle of the tournament).

Money talks... and an image is worth a thousand words (of advertising)

Jimmy Connors - Ended year as world #1 with no majors
John McEnroe - Ended year as world #1 with no majors
Marcelo Rios - 6 weeks at #1 - Did not end year as world #1
Lendl - was the #1 seed at a major without being world #1 overall...He then won the French Open in the following year and became the world #1.
Hmmmmm. That still sounds like multiple cases to me. Recall I was responding to your statement:

Thanks! It looks like the only hole that dramatically shifts when going from correlation with Total Score to Player Rating is Eureka Hole 5 (Baseball Field). That totally makes sense, because missing that drive is an immediate loss of two strokes, making it a very high-leverage hole. Some of the others shift a bit, but nothing really stands out as being a "real thing" and not just noise.

Two cases shows how rare something is...your testament to there being multiple people who've been world #1 is indicative of exaggeration. Furthermore the two examples you provided weren't even players who had finished the year as #1, they had it for a few weeks. You went on to say that some players have held the world #1 ranking for years without winning a major, which you are flat out wrong about. Then you tried to use women's stats to bolster your point...c'mon.

My point was that your comparison between wining majors in tennis isn't directly comparable to DG one to one as you stated.

Twice on the men's side (Lendl, Rios) and seven on the women's side (Clijsters, Mauresmo, Jankovic, Safina, Wozniacki, Ka.Pliskova, and Halep)

And from this view you can see Cat walking away from the group even before Paige taps in for the win. .everybody else stayed and gave Paige a hug
