The 5 drivers fielded by the PGA Tour bats won: Off-the-tee leaders

Some of the top drivers on the PGA Tour

Ryan Barath/Darren Riehl

Being a great driver takes speed and consistency, and as courses on the PGA Tour get longer and firmer, being closer to the green on every approach is a huge advantage – this is measured in shots won: off-the -Tea stats.

Part of the puzzle is the actual gear used to gain that advantage off the tee. Not only do these clubs need to be in good shape, golfers need to have confidence in their technology. These are the top 5 leaders in strokes won: off the tee on the tour so far this year and the riders in their bags.

1. Keith Mitchell (+.966)

Mizuno STZ-230


Mitchell is as rock solid off the tee as any player on tour and it shows in his shots won. His driver of choice is the Mizuno STX-230 with a ProjectX Hzrdus T1100 shaft. A fun note about Mitchell’s clubs is that he’s one of the few Tour pros still playing the Golf Pride Victory Full Cord.

2. Scottie Scheffler (+.963)

While his footwork may be unique, there’s no denying that Scheffler has no trouble hitting the driver well off the tee. He also plays a TaylorMade Stealth2 Plus with a Fujikura Ventus Black 7x. You can check out his full setup from his last World Open win here: Winner’s Bag Scottie Scheffler

T3. Kevin Yu (+.912)

Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond

Jonathan Wand

Yu is enjoying a solid start to his first full season on the PGA Tour, and in addition to being in the top 5 for shots off the tee, he’s also second in overall percentage of greens in regulation behind only Scheffler.

Buckley has had two top-10 finishes so far in 2023, including a second-place finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Aside from his strong riding – he plays a Titleist TSR3 – he’s also second on the tour in eagles per hole, which just got a bump in the players thanks to his first-round hole-in-one.
