After some time on the green, we will prove that statistical exercises can be both informative, educational and fun, through statistical analyses insights of Kuldeep Uppal.

At 6:30, Kuldeep will give us an overview of Statistics and the impact to industry, with a focus on the Cost of Not Doing it Right. We’ll learn about the human and direct monetary impact. Kuldeep will explain the distinctions between statistics and metrics, and the difference between the two disciplines.  He’ll also help us understand why both are important.

Kuldeep may use our golf data as a practical example of metrics and statistics and why the distinctions are important.
