Boy, the athleticism and physical conditioning on the PGA Tour today is mighty impressive!

Anyway, after the soggy Memorial, the PGA Tour driving distance average dropped to 288.9 yards, down from 289.5 following last week's event in Memphis.

There was 1 350-or-longer drive, with the season total now at 945.

Here's an article about that drive along with some stuff about Bubba Watson's caddie woes.

Oh yes, it was Bubba Watson driving the 14th at Muirfield Village! He relates this story about standing on the tee box after driving the green.

"Someone yelled, ‘flex!’ " Bubba said, "so I wanted to show him I don’t have any muscles because I don’t work out. The only time I visit (the tour fitness trailer) is to say hello to friends."
