Ray rose to prominence during his time as a researcher for Golf Channel, but is now the head of content for 15th Club. There, Ray compiles notes for fans to consume, but also works with some of golf’s best players (Rory McIlroy and the European Ryder Cup Team are among 15th Club’s clients) and analysts as the role of advanced stats in the game continues to grow.

Among other topics, we spoke to Ray about his favorite Tiger Woods stats, his legendary spreadsheets of data, and some Masters metrics you definitely haven’t heard about. We also discussed the most overrated numbers in golf, and where this stats revolution is heading.
