Senecio: You seem to fixated on his length. A couple of points.
It’s not just 25yds. In the game of golf 25 yards is the difference between me and Usain bolt over 100m. 25yds can take trouble out of play, it’s the difference between hitting a 7-iron into the green and hitting a wedge.
Secondly be careful quoting the stats from the tour. They don’t measure every hole, and they don’t care what club you hit. If Bryson hits a 3-iron on one of the holes being measured that week then that becomes part of his driving statistic. Also they measure total difference. Two players may hit it 330yds but I can assure you the one who can carry it the furthest has a massive advantage over the golfer who gets a lot of run.
For example you mentioned Louis, great golfer who can be deceptively long in the stats. Make no mistake, put Louis and Bryson on the same tee with driver in their hands and Bryson will carry it 60yds further than Louis every day. That’s a massive advantage.
I'm actually fixated on NOT his length, any article or media interview is about his build and his length. They should probabaly discuss Rory and Louis, DJ and Ancer, etc.
Bryson hasnt added anything new to golf. He's not the longest. If he was 50 yards longer than anyone else, then yes, but he isn't, he's not the longest. Thats my point. While some may feel he got lucky and Woolf has bad luck, DeC IMO had the better overall package, length being ONE of many factors. yes 25 yards is an advantage, DJ knows that he gets it every week
