Data analysis

rturf 3: reading a file into R

I made this screencast to show how I would typically get data into the R working environment. This is a series about R for turfgrass, so for the example data file I chose one that includes morning green speed (stimpmeter) measurements from the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Hazeltine National Golf Club.

What I did to learn R

Here’s how I got started learning R back in 2011. After this post, I’ll move on to something where we actually work with some data. Stage 1 I installed R software on my computer.

Getting started with #rturf

I started using R in 2011. I’ve read some books, done a lot of Google searches, read a lot of questions and answers that turned up on stackoverflow after executing those searches, and read a lot of blog posts and package vignettes and manuals and documentation.
