Hello, I'm Mark Crossfield, welcome to The Waggle,
00:02
and tonight, we're talking PGA Tour stats.
00:05
Just how good are these tour pros?
00:09
They think they're so good, don't they?
00:11
(upbeat music) (whistling)
00:15
So PGA tour stats, looking at driving distance,
00:19
to kick us off.
00:20
Number one, 2015 season, Dustin Johnson,
00:25
averaging 317 earthling yards, 317, Bubba Watson
00:32
in a close second at 315.2, these guys are boomin' it.
00:37
Just how hard is that?
00:39
They think they're so big, don't they, and long.
00:42
They just think they're so clever.
00:44
(clink)
00:45
Uhm, that's 262 yards, Mark.
00:47
Okay.
00:50
(clink)
00:52
That's 263 yards, Mark.
00:54
What?
00:56
(clink)
00:58
Do I need to measure that one?
01:00
Come on.
01:02
So we all think hitting fairways is the key to success.
01:06
PGA tour statistics for 2015 for the most consecutive
01:10
fairways hit, the award went to Josh Teater.
01:17
Who's Josh Teater, he hit 34 fairways in a row.
01:20
I mean how hard, that can't be that hard, can it?
01:24
No, I'm pretty good with my driving, normally.
01:25
How many did he do in a row?
01:27
Come on then, let's take that on.
01:30
(clink)
01:32
Ah, that's going a little bit left.
01:34
Should we start again?
01:36
(whoosh)
01:36
Now the most impressive stat is the money list.
01:39
Jordan Spieth topping it, he's 22 years old.
01:42
Reported earning, 22 million dollars this year.
01:46
22 million dollars.
01:49
Now that must be hard to cope with, at that young age,
01:52
how do you deal with that amount of winnings?
01:55
That's a game, Jordan.
01:56
Thank you, thanks a lot.
01:58
Thank you.
01:59
