Drivers used by golfers ranked in the top 10 in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee on the PGA Tour in 2022

The PGA Tour’s final wrap-around season recently concluded and the fall schedule has just two more full-field events remaining before the Tour takes a break for the holidays.

Last season, the PGA Tour’s driving distance average was 299.8 yards per measured tee shot, a season-ending record and up 3.6 yards from 2021’s average of 296.2. Cameron Champ led the PGA Tour in driving distance average at 321.4 yards, edging out Rory McIlroy by 0.1 yards. In all, 99 golfers finished the season with a driving distance average of over 300 yards.

Distance is a major component of effectiveness off the tee, but accuracy and how far you leave yourself from the flag also play a role. For that reason, Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, which factors all those things and reveals how much of an advantage (measured in strokes) a player has over the field, is the best measure of effectiveness. The players listed below ended the PGA Tour’s 2021-22 season ranked as the top 10 in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, along with the drivers they were using at the end of the season.
