Home Course Advantage

mg_0023

In professional sports be it hockey, baseball, football or basket ball reference is often made to the importance of ‘home field advantage’.

Professional golf is somewhat different in that it is not a team sport (other than conditions such as the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup), it is largely an individual sport and no one player has a distinct home field advantage from week to week.

That got me to thinking about the importance of home course advantage in Leagues such as  the Central Senior Putter League.

I did a breakdown of the the number of times the home team won, lost or the matches were tied since 2016 when I became the League Statistician.  Here are the results as they relate to the home team:

Won Lost Tie
2016 63% 35% 2%
2017 63% 29% 8%
2018 71% 29% 0

*2018 after 5 weeks

I would appear that in this League at least, the home team does have a distinct advantage.
