PGA Tour Strokes Gained Tee to Green Leaders By Year

"Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green" is the name of a statistical category on the PGA Tour that compares a golfer's performance in all elements of the game other than putting against the similarly measured performances of all other golfers in the field.

Strokes Gained Tee to Green (abbreviated SG: Tee-to-Green or SG: TTG) is a combination of three other stats. It takes a golfer's Strokes Gained: Off the Tee number, his Strokes Gained: Approach the Green number, and his Strokes Gained: Around the Green number, and combines those three. The resulting number is his SG: Tee-to-Green average.

The PGA Tour's Strokes Gained stats are calculated via complex mathematical formulas using ShotLink data. They have been calculated back to the 2004 season.

If a golfer has an SG: Tee-to-Green average of 1.000, that means he is one stroke better than the average of the rest of the field on shots played from tees, from fairways, and from the areas around greens.
