Drivers used by PGA Tour players ranked in the top 10 in strokes gained off the tee

With the Fall Series and the West Coast Swing now in the rearview mirror and the PGA Tour’s Florida Swing having started, there have been enough events played in the 2021-2022 season to start to get a good statistical feel for the game. Most players have competed in at least four to six events, so their stats have meaning and are less likely to see wild changes based on one week’s performance.

One of the most coveted stats on the PGA Tour is strokes gained off the tee, which measures the advantage (or disadvantage) a player has exclusively from his performance on par 4s and par 5s off the tee. A positive number means a player is better than the average golfer on Tour, while a negative number means the player is worse than average. Golfers who excel in this statistic tend to make a lot of money, find themselves in contention on the weekends and become household names. The best season-ending strokes gained off the tee average ever was turned in by Bubba Watson in 2012 (1.485), and Rory McIlroy has finished the season ranked either first or second five times in the past 10 years.

Below is a list of the golfers who rank in the top 10 in strokes gained off the tee, along with the drivers they are currently using.
