The average driver length shaft on the PGA Tour for the past few years has been 44.5 inches. The average length for off the rack drivers is currently 45 to 46 inches. Why longer? Well, the longer the shaft will produce more distance, right? The reason some the best players in the world may play a shorter driver is control and distance.
Haven’t you notice that PGA Tour player, Anthony Kim grips down on his driver? And he does not hit it short. His driving average for 2008 was 300.9 yards.
