I'd like to share some interesting information from the latest 2020 USGA distance insight report. The report is available for download - all 100 pages plus which makes some fascinating reading for any golfer. I've attached a graph which really shocked me - there has been NO change in driving distance for the MALE handicap golfer between 1996 and 2019? I will be sending the LADIES distances, which have seen a big increase in this same time frame. So, are we only seeing these incredible distances of 320 plus with elite players? the answer is YES.
Below you will see both men and ladies driving distances analyzed from 1996 to 2019. In the weeks ahead I'll be discussing the report and its alignment with golf instruction.
