STATS QUIZ: September 10, 2013
1. The ball-striking statistic is computed by totaling a player's rank in total driving and greens in regulation. Steve Stricker ranks fifth in this category in 2013, perhaps a bit of a surprise. But when you think of ball-strikers, the top 4 often come to mind. See if you can name the top 4 players in ball-striking.
2. Greg Chalmers ranks No. 1 on the PGA TOUR in putting from inside of 5 feet. He's taken 952 attempts this season. How many of those putts do you think he's made?
3. This player has made 26 putts of more than 20 feet this season on the PGA TOUR. He ranks No. 1 in that category. While he has contended in 2013, his last win came in 2012. Can you name him?
4. This player ranks No. 1 on the PGA TOUR in proximity to the hole from the rough. Hint: He's in the top 10 in FedExCup points. Name him.
