Length no problem in Vegas for title holder Martin (Reuters)

(Reuters) – American Ben Martin hit the jackpot with his maiden PGA Tour victory in Las Vegas 12 months ago but knows he once again needs to make up for his relatively short distance off the tee for his title defense this week. The modern game is dominated by power hitters such as Jason Day, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott while players such as Martin, who languished in 110th spot for average driving distance on the 2014-15 PGA Tour, need to excel in other areas. “Length is kind of the way the game is moving,” Martin, 28, told reporters while preparing for Thursday’s opening round in the $6.4 million Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at the TPC Summerlin.
