Top 10 Golfers in Strokes Gained

USA Today published the drivers used by the golfers who top the PGA Tour in strokes gained off the tee, a key metric for success, two weeks ago. Strokes gained approaching the green, on the other hand, are a stat that has much more significance for the game’s finest players.

Sure, everyone wants to sink more putts and hit the ball further off the tee, but experts have accepted the idea that the more birdie opportunities you have, the lower your scores will be, even if you aren’t a fantastic putter. Distance off the tee is beneficial, but precision and consistency with your irons from the fairway can result in birdie opportunities and keep high numbers off your scorecard.

The players that presently top the PGA Tour in strokes gained approaching the green, as well as the irons they use, are shown below.
