Are you below, level or above average?
Where do you fit and were you fitted?
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. The tables below were reproduced from that article:

The next question is where do you sit in your age and handicap group?
It would also be very interesting to note the differences in averages by other criteria, for instance, within a handicap with drivers greater than 2 years old and those 2 years or less.
2016 especially was a great year for distance
Innovation was hidden in the use of thinner, stronger materials enabling internal structure changes that were all designed to spread the hitting zone. We’d be surprised if the averages weren’t increased by 5 – 10 metres just on that improvement.
We wonder what the data could tell us about a fitting. We know that the moment we get a golfer into an assessment and fitting, we’re on our way to adding 10, 15 and even more metres to their tee shots.
