I hadn't looked at the chart that closely earlier. Interesting that it is a very linear progression of roll yardage-except for the LPGA numbers. I wonder why that is? For some reason they are listed as getting 26 yards of roll.

In the "2018" PGA Tour season, 15 guys with below average Tour Swing Speeds (per PGATour.com) won a total of 16 events. Not sure if this will format well as a paste in, but here is the list:

Michael Kim 27 1 110.64

^^Molinari also averaged 301 off the tee.

Edit if I recall correctly the swing speed number is gathered from a much smaller number of shots. Wasn't Potter Jr pretty short on average last year?

If you're counting the Safeway through the Tour Championship that's about 36% of the events or just over a 1/3.  I'm not going to do the leg work but with the exception of Molinari and Simpson I can't say whether the strength of field was any good on those other events.
