About Shot by Shot
Peter Sanders is President and founding partner of Shot By Shot. After a successful career in the insurance industry, Sanders used his analytical skills to develop Shot By Shot in 1989. Frustrated with flaws in traditional, one-dimensional golf stats, he used his computer modeling experience to create what is now called Strokes Gained analysis (see History of Strokes Gained).
Sanders currently provides statistical analysis for six PGA Tour professionals, including Zach Johnson. The ShotByShot.com game improvement product has been featured in both GOLF and Golf Digest magazines. Peter Sanders has authored or contributed to more than 60 articles in major golf publications, including several cover stories. In 2016 and 2017, Peter has become a regular contributor to the popular online publication GolfWRX.com. His July 2016 article revealing the difference between the average Tour player and the Scratch golfer garnered over 355,000 views.
Sanders has been a Professional Advisor to Golf Digest magazine. He also provided advisory services to Trackman, developer of a cutting edge shot flight tracking system used by the PGA Tour and the major TV networks. Most recently, Sanders has been a statistical consultant to Arccos Golf, developer of the groundbreaking, game tracking and analysis system using GPS sensors that attach to users' golf clubs. His role has been to implement his Strokes Gained analysis into the Arccos feedback.

Peter Sanders on the myth of old school statistical programs
Peter Sanders, President of ShotByShot.com. Sanders used the earliest version of ShotByShot.com to track his own performance against data gathered from his more proficient playing partners. Sanders' own handicap improved from 14 to 1 in a single golf season using this system.
Cameron Wilson, 2014 NCAA Division 1 Champion. Wilson began using ShotByShot.com as an individual subscriber. He convinced Conrad Ray, golf coach at Stanford University, to purchase ShotByShot.com for the entire team in 2012. Credit for this success? The program was at least a part of the winning formula.
Mac Hughes, PGA Tour Winner in 2016. Mac Hughes has been using ShotByShot.com for over 10 years, as a member of Team Canada's junior, Amateur and Young Pro teams.
