319.8YDS LONG­EST AV­ER­AGE DRIV­ING DIS­TANCE

Rory McIl­roy led this cat­e­gory by over a yard from Trey Mul­li­nax (318.7 yards). No fewer than 61 play­ers av­er­aged 300 yards or more in 2018, the high­est num­ber on record.

74.79% FAIR­WAY FIN­DERS

Hen­rik Sten­son hit 546 of 730 fair­ways. It’s less good read­ing for Ricky Barnes, the only player to find the fair­way less than half the time at 47.15%. Phil Mick­el­son was sec­ond from bot­tom with 51.59%.

74.25% HIT YOUR GREENS

Sten­son also hit a higher per­cent­age of greens in reg­u­la­tion than any­one else on Tour. Keith Mitchell hit an im­pres­sive 37 greens in reg­u­la­tion in a row. We’d be happy to hit that many in an en­tire sea­son.

354 NO THREE-PUTTS

Parker McLach­lin went a sea­son-high 354 holes with­out a three-putt. Ben Martin and Hen­rik Sten­son shared the record for most con­sec­u­tive one-putts at 14.

90FT 8IN LONG­EST PUTT

Jor­dan Spi­eth drained the long­est putt of the sea­son, a 90ft 8in ef­fort dur­ing the Sony Open in Hawaii. The long­est ever recorded on the PGA Tour was Craig Bar­low’s 111ft 5in mon­ster at the 2008 Buick Open.
