Question: An ophthalmologist is interested in determining whether a golfer s type

An ophthalmologist is interested in determining whether a golfer’s type of vision (far-sightedness, near-sightedness, no prescription) impacts how well he or she can judge distance. Random samples of golfers from these three groups (far-sightedness, near-sightedness, no prescription) were selected, and these golfers were blindfolded and taken to the same location on a golf course. Then each of them was asked to estimate the distance from this location to the pin at the end of the hole. The data (in yards) given in the following table represent how far off the estimates (let us call these errors) of these golfers were from the actual distance. A negative value implies that the person underestimated the distance, and a positive value implies that a person overestimated the distance.
Test at a 1% significance level whether the average errors in predicting distance for all golfers of the three different vision types are the same.
