In this analysis I will determine the execution of professional golfers in the final two rounds of a four round tournament. This paper investigates if a player’s performance influences another player’s performance using tee shots on par three holes. I use a fixed effects regression model to determine if there are significant spill overs in player performances when paired together. Important variables used throughout this paper include distance to the pin after the shot, a player’s world ranking, and the money each player wins for his performance. The preferred model fails to find any statistically significant evidence that suggest one player’s performance influences their playing partner’s performance.
