PGA Tour Driving Distance Watch, Vol. 10

pgatour.jpgThe PGA Tour driving distance average finished up 1.5 yards to 288.956. Oh heck, let's call it 289!

But here's the post-Honda Classic eye-opener: there were 288 drives of 350 yards or longer for the week, bringing the season total to 828 at 350 or more (they're nearly halfway home to 2005's total of 2,059 and haven't played a major yet!).

Despite the onslaught of big tee shots, only 1 over-400 yard drive was added, bringing the total to 16 (19 in all of 2005).

As for the percentage of drives over 300 stat, the PGA Tour average remains 27% of drives finishing over 300 yards.
