PGA Tour Driving Distance Watch, Vol. 5

pgatour.jpgThe PGA Tour driving distance average rose 2.3 yards in Scottsdale to 289.4 yards for the season.

In the 350-yard or longer drive category, the tally was boosted by 22 tee shots, pushing the season total to 481 for the season. (Sheesh, J.B. Holmes must have had at least half of those 22!?)

There were 2059 drives of 350 yards or more in 2005.

Ah but the two-week streak without a 400 yarder ended, with 2 hit, bringing the season total to 15 and just four behind last year's total of 19.
