PGA Tour player average distances: Driver, irons, wedges through the bag


The average PGA Tour player doesn't hit their driver as far as Dustin Johnson or Jason Day. They still hit the ball farther than most of you, even the shortest knockers, including the guys who struggle to drive the ball 270 yards.

How far PGA Tour players hit the golf ball with each club in their bag isn't an exact science, however. Every player is different. Every situation -- off the tee, from the fairway or rough -- is different. So, we wanted to give you an idea of how far is far and how short is short among PGA Tour players.

We'll take you through the bag to show you PGA Tour players' average distances with their driver, irons and wedges.

Remember, these are general numbers that don't account for special late-in-tournament situations where a player may be particularly jacked with adrenaline and hit it farther than normal.
