Sure, the PGA Tour is all about the long ball. Last year, for example, Tour winners outdrove the field by an average of eight yards. But that's not the case at the Players and Sawgrass, which puts a bigger premium on accuracy and iron play. Since 2002 the Players' champion has driven the ball almost the exact same distance (281.76 yards to 280.37) as the rest of the field, but has hit substantially more fairways (10.4%) and, consequently, an astounding 19.2% more greens in regulation.
