FOR THE TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

"The AMP driver is great. Everything has been flying right, and the driver is a lot of fun to hit. It's pretty hot, and I've been hitting it really well."

TECH TALK

LONG AND STRONG

There really is something to driving distance and success

It's no coincidence that this year's Masters champion (Bubba Watson) and the hottest player on the planet (Rory McIlroy) rank among the top six in driving distance. The two players are also proof that you don't necessarily have to find the fairway off the tee—Watson is 119th in driving accuracy, McIlroy 142nd. With the Tour Championship looming, here are the game's longest hitters along with their drivers of choice.
