At its core golf is a game of integers, but any analysis quickly moves to continuous temporal and spatial variables. This talk will discuss some of the mathematical models that have been developed and used to progress our understanding over the past 50 years. These vary in complexity from simplistic high school mathematics to methods used within dynamical systems.

The talk will include discussions on the challenges in quantify and characterising the variability of humans. The focus will be on full shots and what elements of the swing exhibit variability and where this variability can be used to enhance performance.
