Some good data to know for the amateur golfer: Game Golf Live, a wearable real-time shot-tracking has provided data regarding the average driving distance from rounds played in 2016 (April to September). Breaking it down in two divisions -- age and handicap — above are the median driving distances from golfers across the world. •
At its core, the median driving distance is 219.55 yards. Other club distances of note: the median 3-wood goes 186.89 yards, 7-iron clocks in at 133.48 yards and pitching wedge at a 73.97 mark. For what it's worth, golfers find the fairway 46.46 percent of the time. •
Distance is a big factor to how skilled a golfer is. It’s obviously no everything but distance is, according to me, not taught enough. If you want to improve, and have the physical abilities to do so, then I would absolutely recommend to see a trainer and coach and ask how you could increase your driving distance. • (study posted at @golfdigest)
