The average pro golfer travels 44,000 miles a year
Here are some interesting stats on traveling, fitness, and other activities surrounding professional golfers.
This infographic is pretty intriguing to me. The average golfer on the PGA Tour travels 44,000 miles a year. That's a lot of wear and tear.
I spoke to some of the folks who helped compile the survey and they said the results were pretty standard whether the player was a top-level player, middle of the pack, or barely hanging on to his tour card.
Also, how is that 97 percent number not 100? You're telling me three of every 100 guys don't use the WiFi? What are they doing? Reading?! (I know that's not true)
I hope this graphic gives people a greater appreciation for the grind of the tour. Yes, they make a lot of money, and some even accumulate fame. But it's a tough life at times.
And like Will MacKenzie's ex-wife recently said, "the days are long, and the years go fast."
