Drivers used by top 10 in driving distance on the PGA Tour

It may be just mid-February, but the 2017-18 PGA Tour season is already four months old and the West Coast Swing has only one event remaining, this week’s Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

Many of the game’s biggest names have gone through the process of getting fitted for the latest gear and are swinging new drivers. The players listed below (with average driving distance) are the 10 longest hitters on Tour this season, and seven of them are using drivers that were not available to the public six months ago.

That does not necessarily mean you should rush to the store and buy a new driver, but if you live in a cold-weather city and the images from Pebble Beach last week or Riviera in the coming days make you eager to get back out on the course, an appointment with a good custom fitter can help ensure the driver you swing this season is ideally suited to your game.
