Websters dictionary defines probability – the extent to which something is probable; the likelihood of something happening or being the case.

For the purpose of a fun discussion, what if you could predict future performance? Or what if you could predict the outcome of a certain tournament? This is nearly impossible to do in golf because of so many outside influences on score. Weather, golf course, bad luck, bad bounce, whatever, it’s next to impossible.

But what if you could calculate the probabilities of a tournament? For example, using statistical and econometric models you can produce the probabilities on how each team will finish in the NCAA Regional Tournaments. This is NOT a prediction, this is the probability on how each team will finish in each regional.
