Each week, GolfChannel.com will take a detailed look at the players who pounded the farthest and fastest drives on the PGA Tour. Here are the four most important distance-related stats from the RBC Canadian Open, won by Brandt Snedeker:
Longest drive: Bubba Watson, 384 yards

Watson was also the best in this category for the first time this season, even if it didn’t quite measure up to his 316-yarder a few weeks ago at the Travelers.
