Golf Yardage Survey Results

with No Comments

I was cleaning up my inbox when I came across an old email from Survey Monkey. In full on Homer Simpson fashion I let out my “DOH!” and logged back in to the site.

At the time I was really pumped up about this survey. I was curious as hell to see if there were people out there like me playing yardages that we probably shouldn’t be playing from.I would have like to have gotten around a 100 participants but half that is still some results that are fun to look at. So here they are:

  • Male –      98.04% (50)
  • Female –  1.96%(1)

I might try this again at a later date. The results were a little surprising in some facets but not so much in others. I’ve found a couple other survey sites that run their software more effectively than Survey Monkey did.

If you partook in the survey, thank you very much I really appreciate it.
