2,059 and Counting

PGA_TourLogo.gif2,059. That's how many PGA Tour drives finished over 350 yards in 2005 according to the Tour's stat gurus.

You may recall that last week the longest drive stat was looked at here, and it was pointed out that ShotLink was now tallying all long drives hit this year (unlike in past years where only drives hit on the pair of measuring holes counted toward the longest drive stat).

However, the 2005 list ended at 978 drives of 357 yards or more. 2,059. I had 1,500 in the pool.

Architects, change those turning points! 300 is out, bring on 340!

Shoot, might as well go with 350 just in case the guys really start hitting the weights this winter.
