Imagine combining the world's best driver, best iron player and top wedge-and-putting ace.

 

In 2017, those drives would have been hit by Dustin Johnson, the approach shots outside 100 yards struck by Jordan Spieth, and the wedge and putting duties from inside 100 yards handled by Rickie Fowler.

 

Across every event of the season, that golf superman would have had an average score almost one stroke lower than 2017's scoring-average leader.

 

So which flesh-and-blood player in our 35-year statistical sample has come closest to our Rory-Adam-Jason avatar?

 

In second place, with a total strokes gained of 3.7 strokes per round, is the 2006 edition of Tiger Woods.

 

In first place? It's Tiger again, this time in 2000, with an amazing total strokes gained of 4.4 strokes per round. That's just 0.2 strokes shy of the performance of our fictional supergolfer.

 

In that superhuman 2000 season, Tiger Woods won nine times in 20 starts, including three major victories. Ka-pow!

I daresay being called iron mick is infinitely more offensive than being called gay, if you were trying to deride me that is?
