PGA TOUR STATISTICS: Greens in regulation | Proximity to the hole | Fairway proximity | GIR percentage from fairway

Each week during the 2017-18 season, PGATOUR.COM's Equipment Report highlights the top five players in a statistical category, and the club they used to get to the top. We continue with the TOUR leaders (as of July 23, 2018) in Strokes Gained: Approach-the-green. 
(How to calculate: The number of Approach the Green strokes a player takes from specific locations and distances are measured against a statistical baseline to determine the player's strokes gained or lost on a hole. The sum of the values for all holes played in a round minus the field average strokes gained/lost for the round is the player's Strokes gained/lost for that round. The sum of strokes gained for each round are divided by total rounds played.)
