Sv: RE-building the future 2010/2011

Lumber Jack: Är det något liknande Tiger Woods effekten, som man ska hoppas på vad gäller motståndarnas resultat när Foppa är på isen.

"There is a paper by Kellogg professor Jennifer Brown that examines this effect in professional golf tournaments.  She compares how the average competitor performs when Tiger Woods is in the tournament relative to when he is not.  Controlling for a variety of factors, Tiger Woods’ presence increases (i.e. worsens, remember this is golf) the score of the average golfer, even in the first round of the tournament.

There are actually two reasons why this should be true.  First is the direct incentive effect mentioned above.  The other is that lesser golfers should take more risks when they are facing tougher competition."
