I like to compare radar stats simply because there are less variables with conditions.  Ball speed basically it is what it is and there's no faking that.  David Toms, Tim Clark and Gavin Coles are all sub 155 ball speed on average.  Just goes to show you that the fascination for distance shouldn't be at the top of our "want" list.  Mr. Toms has made almost $40,000,000 on the PGA Tour and Mr. Clark is just shy of $20,000,000 himself.  If anything this shows if you can generate 155+ you can play golf ANYWHERE.

917D2 (8.5)- Speeder 661
816H1 (17)- Sspeeder 8.8
DHy (4)- White Tie
716MB (5-PW)- S400
Vokey SM6 RAW (54S & 58K)- S400
Scotty Cameron Napa California

Is he really 5'6"? I was going to throw in Chez Reavie but I guess he's not that short after all.

Mark Wilson is 5'8".

Corey Pavin is 5'9".

In the current OWGR, the shortest player in the top 50 is probably Hiroyuki Fujita who is 5'6".

Not active anymore, but the Masters winner (-91) Ian Woosnam is very short 5'4. He was said to be the longest hitter pound for pound during his prime.

Listed height or true height?  You'll need to subtract at least 1" maybe 2" on what they are listed at.  Some guy by the legal name of Eldred is listed as 6'1" and he may be 5'11" on a good day seeing as I'm 6'1" and was easily easily 2 inches taller when I was standing next to him a few years back.  Rory is listed at 5'10", really 5'9" with shoes on.  I'm assuming most of the heights are "padded", especially for the shorter guys.  Oh and Fowler isn't close to the 5'9" he's listed at.

I think you mean Eldrick...

Should we deduct a few inches from your 6'1"?
