In 1980 the average PGA drive was about 256 yards. Since then, ball and club technology has led to a 13% increase in drives. Dustin Johnson's average drive has been the farthest in the PGA so far this year. He was averaging 316.2 yards per measured drive through April 2, 2017. Johnson, the top ranked golfer in the world, withdrew from this year's Masters Tournament due to a back injury.
