Drivers used by Top 10 in Official World Golf Ranking

While some of the game’s highest-ranked players utilize their driver to attack a golf course, others, while not being short off the tee, rely on their driver to set up other parts of their game.

For example, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy’s tremendous length allows them to hit over trouble and leave short irons and wedges into many par 4s. Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson utilize driver to set up their aggressive iron games.

One commonality among the players, no matter whether they are among the most powerful or not, is they have drivers built specifically for their swings. Here are the top 10 players in the Official World Golf Ranking and the drivers they use, with their average driving distance and strokes gained: off-the-tee average this season:
