LPGA – PGA Driving Distance Comparison

Just in case anyone isn’t sick of the driving distance discussion I’ve got a nugget for you.

I was watching the LPGA Tour on TV today and saw that the leader in driving distance, not Michelle Wie, was at 292.6 yards! I started comparing LPGA and PGA driving distances. I went back until I found the closest year between the two leaders. That took me back 10 years to 1996. Look at the comparisons of the top 5 from the LPGA 2006 and the PGA 1996.
