7 PGA Tour Stats That Are Vastly Overrated

November 2013
Justin Rose

Myth: To win on the PGA Tour, you have to hit fairways.

Fact: No winner in 2013 led the field in driving accuracy the week they won. There is some value in keeping it in the fairway in tougher tournaments -- Justin Rose finished second in the field in accuracy en route to his U.S. Open victory, while Henrik Stenson was among the best in the field during his second- and third-place finishes at the British Open and PGA. But more important than keeping it in the fairway is just keeping it out of the deep rough.
