Birdies and Score. How important are birdies (a score of one under par on a given hole) in determining the final total score of a woman golfer? From the U.S. Women’s Open website, we obtained data on number of birdies during a tournament and final score for 63 women golfers. The data are presented on the WeissStats site. a. obtain and interpret the standard error of the estimate. b. obtain a residual plot and a normal probability plot of the residuals. c. decide whether you can reasonably consider Assumptions 1–3 for regression inferences met by the two variables under consideration.
