Who hit the ball hardest off of the tee? Who could precisely shape their drives from side to side while also controlling its trajectory? Who could routinely put the ball on the fairway and in play when it mattered?
As Peter Kostis, on-course reporter for CBS Sports, put it, “all the superstars of each generation separated themselves from their fellow competitors with the driver.”
