Your Game summary shows average distance off the tee. How about breaking that out by par 3 - par 4 - par 5 holes? I don't use a driver off the tee on a par 3 or even many par 4 holes but averaging all distances off the tee makes it look like I only manage 130 off the tee.

If you do not enter a distance for your drives on par 3s, it does not affect your averages.

What you say is true but I don't think the answer is to not record data. I enter distance for all clubs off the tee. One of the reports available gives distance by club. I would have less data if I skipped the par 3s especially since I play a lot of par 3 holes.

For par 3's I record my tee shot in the approach field so that it doesn't affect the driving distance.

Just for the record.The driving distance stat here on oob is a little misleading.
I believe that the pro stat is based on only 4 holes per course.These holes are selected in advance.They are long and straight holes that call for a Driver off the tee.
This allows the stat to reflect a more accurate record off a golfers distance off the tee.
