Here is one for the golf geeks out there – driving distance vs golfer age on the PGA Tour.
Courtesy of Golf.com comes this interesting plot of average driving distance (2013 – 14) with age of players on the PGA Tour.
While it’s probably not surprising to see a trend towards shorter distances off the tee as golfers get older, it’s fun to take a look at some of the outliers.
Hover your mouse over each point to see player’s name and driving distance. Tom Watson is still getting some good distance for a 65-year-old and his namesake, Bubba is well and truly the longest hitter off the tee.
Angel Cabrera smokes it for a guy his age and it will be interesting to see if Jordan Spieth, as the youngest player on the graph can get any extra distance out of his game over the next few years.
