Different courses on the PGA Tour favour different skill sets. This visualization compares golf courses based off the degree to which different golfer attributes — such as driving distance — predict who performs well at each course. Golfers who possess the favoured skillset at a given course can be said to have good 'course fit'. More information about this visualization can be found here
