Using data supplied by Game Golf, the team at Golf Digest produced a very interesting article that showed us the average distances regular golfers hit their driver.

So much talk about 'loft' but it's the 'launch' that matters
Finding the right loft on your Driver to maximise performance, is much more than taking a simple swing speed reading and matching that to a required loft. Above are just four influences we need to consider....
Although each of these Drivers has the same head size and the same loft (and the same shaft flex), each Driver, when placed on the robot tester, will launch the ball with different launch angles and spin rates creating very different ball flight and trajectory.
