Amateur players often tend to “prettify” reality, but with new technologies it is now easier to calibrate. The data doesn't lie, so find out if your average drive distance matches your index.
Golf, average distance
Provided by Arccos, the most precise sensors and often present on new series of clubs, this data made public makes it possible to restore the truth concerning the average driving distance of male players.

They are jointly written and operated by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body of golf throughout the world, other than the United States and Mexico, which are the responsibility of the United States Golf Association.
A panel of experts made up of members of the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision is effective from 1 January 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in some cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.
The rule book, titled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and manages the resulting sports justice, protecting their interests abroad.
The rules of golf are relatively complicated compared to other sports because they are applied outdoors, close to nature and animals. Respect for the rules is a basic element in the game of golf, which, almost always based on the self-control and free conscience of the players, often sees distorted results, consciously at times, but often unconsciously or out of lightness, due to non-compliance by many players of the game rules.
In addition to the rules, golf adheres to a code of conduct, known as etiquette, which generally means playing the game with due respect for the golf course and other players. Etiquette is an essential component of this sport.
