We all love to pound on a drive.  Distance is the holy grail.  McIlroy, DJ, Koepka, Bubba and co are mega earners thanks in large part to their immense power off the tee.

But who are the straightest drivers on Tour?  And how did they fare out in terms of points and money over the 2018 season?

I've had a look at the top five.  There's one name on there I might have guessed, that's Henrik Stenson, but the rest? Not a chance.

Over the 2018 Season the straightest drivers were:

1. Henrik Stenson (75.19% fairways hit)

Driver: Callaway Rogue (9 degrees)
Played 16 events. Earned $2,680,484. Fed Ex Cup rank 57

2. Ryan Armour (73.58%)

Driver: TaylorMade M1 2017 (10.5 degrees)
Played 32 events. Earned $2,485,203. Fed Ex Cup rank 49

3. Chez Reavie (72.24)

Driver: TaylorMade M2 2017 (9.5 degrees)
Played 28 events. Earned $2,700,018. Fed Ex Cup rank 34

4. Ryan Moore (71.94%)

Driver: PXG ZZ and Prototype (9° degrees)
Played 22 events. Earned $1,986,608. Fed Ex Cup rank 71

5. Brian Stuard (71.44%)

Callaway Rogue Sub Zero (10.5 degrees)
Played 32 events. Earned $1,089,763. Fed Ex Cup rank 86

Of thosefive, Ryan Armour logged 109 rounds as opposed to Henrik's 60 so maybe he could claim to be the most accurate over the entire season.

All made it inside the top 100 in the Fed Ex Rankings with Chez Reavie faring best and all but Brian Stuard earned around $2 million.

The conclusion? Get into the gym quick!
