Did you know that professional golf tournaments start on Thursday and last through Sunday. The players compete on the first two days and only the players with the best scores are allowed to finish the tournament. This is referred to as "making the cut" and it comes with real consequences...money! Players who don't make the cut do not get paid, while everyone who completes the tournament receives a payout based on their final rankings in the tournament.

 

For this week's challenge, use the included dataset (which contains tournament results for the last 5 years) to find the 5 players with the highest earnings per event, and the top 5 players who have earned the most money without winning any events.

From the description, it seems like there could be a future challenge to either figure out who will make the cut or make predictions on who will make the cut at a tournament.
